Daniyar Aubakirov limped the small blind and then called the shove of Connor Drinan to be the player at risk.
The hopes of a maiden bracelet for Drinan increased on the flop as he made a pair of nines. Aubakirov still had plenty of outs and while he missed the turn, the river kept him in contention.
Aubakirov then lost some of the profit and raised to 2,312,000 next when facing a limp by Drinan, who called. On a flop, Aubakirov bet 4,025,160 and called the shove of Drinan for the 12,030,096 he had behind.
The turn and river were blanks as Aubakirov doubled once more.
