Daniel Lazrus completed the small blind to 300,000 with Kc6c, Alex Yen raised from the big blind to 1,000,000 with Ad10s, and Lazrus called.

The flop came Ah3h3c, Lazrus checked, Yen bet 400,000, and Lazrus called.

The turn card double-paired the board with the As, and both players checked.

The river card put a full house on the board with the Ac, Lazrus checked, Yen bet 2,000,000, and Lazrus called, playing the full house on the board. But Yen turned over his ace-ten to win the pot with quad aces and knock Lazrus down to about nine big blinds.

Alex Yen  –  47,000,000  (157 bb)
Daniel Lazrus  –  2,650,000  (9 bb)
