Button raises are en vogue in this heads-up contest and Timoshenko again raised on the button. Cody shipped his entire stack into the middle and Timoshenko snap-called, flipping up and finding himself far behind the of Cody.
The Brit's pocket pair survived the flop and Timoshenko was down to a three-outer for a large chunk of his starting stack.
The turn card of was an unpleasant sight for Cody, as Timoshenko picked up three additional outs and could now spike a king or an ace to win the hand.
Cody's hand held up and the Rio erupted in unintelligible chants led by the inebriated British-dominated audience as their man takes a small chip lead. Timoshenko responded to the loss by cashing in his first bullet and adding 1.6 million chips to his stack.
