Blinds: 750,000/1,500,000

Steven Kim raised to 3,000,000, and James Millard called in the small blind. From the big blind, Esa Homayun moved all in for 21,000,000, and it was back to Kim.

He shoved all in to isolate, and the cards were flipped. Homayun showed [10d][6d], and he wasn’t happy to see he was dominated by the [Qd][10s] of Kim. The flop of [9h][7s][3d] gave Homayun a straight draw, and Kim said “Pretty sure the eight of diamonds is coming.”

Sure enough, that card came right on the turn, and now Kim could only win with a jack, and chop with a six. The river was seven though, and Homayun secured a huge double up, putting him back into the lead.
