Vyacheslav Zhukov Takes Chip Lead

In a pot worth well over 1.5 million, Vyacheslav Zhukov scooped with quad sevens, taking the chip lead for the first time during heads-up play. This put him at about 3.3 million to Lind’s 2.7 million.

Soon after gaining the chip lead, Vyacheslav Zhukov widened the gap after quartering Lind in a big pot. Lind was the aggressor the entire way with the made nut low on the turn, but got counterfeited on the river when a deuce hit and he was forced to split the low pot with Zhukov. Zhukov won the high half with two pair, and after being quartered in this pot, Lind is now facing a serious chip deficit of 1.2 million to Zhukov’s 4.8 million.
