Aleksandr Mozhnyakov

It's been a close call as to who the chip leader has been throughout the day. For the time being, it isn't all that close.

We arrived at Aleksandr Mozhnyakov table during the midst of some serious preflop re-raising as Mozhnyakov's eventual victim called a re-raise of 10,000 to see the flop run out {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Mozhnyakov bet 10,000 and his opponent instantly re-raised all in for about 65,000.

An immediate call from Mozhnyakov revealed {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}, well ahead of his opponent's {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}. The {Q-Hearts} turn and {10-Spades} river secured the elimination for Mozhnyakov, upping his stack to 490,000.
