The completed the board on the river bringing a third consecutive check for Lyubovetskiy and a third bet in a row for Palatzky. This time he went big and bet 480,000 putting Lyubovetskiy in a difficult spot. He spent much time in order to decide and eventually another player called the clock on him. When the floor manager started counting Lyubovetskiy threw a chip in the middle to indicate the call and create a more than 1.5 million-chip pot.
Palatzky opened with the nut flush and Lyubovetskiy mucked his hand, to become the shortest of the final table.
