Brian Altman raised from the button to 1,300,000, which covers both of the blinds. Max Kingstone used the full 30 seconds on the time clock before calling all in for about 700,000 with 8h8d.

Altman turned over QsJs, and Kingstone needed his eights to hold to stay alive.

The board came Qs2s2c4h2d, and Altman paired his queen on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Kingstone in 22nd place.
