Leonard Hermann raised from middle position, and Brian Scott called from the button.

The flop came Ad7h4h, Hermann bet 400,000, and Scott called.

The turn card was the 3d, Hermann bet 1,200,000, and Scott thought for a while before he moved all in.

Hermann thought for a bit before he called all in for 2,750,000 with AsQs for a pair of aces. Scott turned over Ac10s for a pair of aces with a lower kicker, and Hermann needed to avoid a ten on the river to stay alive.

The river card was the 2c, and Hermann won the pot with his queen kicker to double up in chips.

Leonard Hermann  –  7,600,000  (38 bb)
Brian Scott  –  11,300,000  (57 bb)
