In two back-to-back hands, Renat Bohdanov extended his chip lead to leave him inches shy of the 10M mark. Mykhailo Hryhoriev raised to 475,000 on the button and Bohdanov defended the big blind. The flop prompted two checks.
On the turn, Bohdanov reached for 650,000 and Hryhoriev quickly waved the white flag.
The next hand, the Ukranian defended the small blind to a 425,000 under the gun raise from Samuel Mika. The flop went check-check. Bohdanov check-called 725,000 on the turn before the river brought another round of checks.
Bohdanov showed for a pair of nines, Mika flashed and mucked.
