Guillermo Hamilton (left) and Nathan Thrush (right)

Nathan Thrush had a top-five stack at the first break, but the situation shifted with most of his stack sliding to his right. As told by Rodrigo Aldorino on the other side of the table, Thrush and Guillermo Hamilton got all their chips in the middle for a huge pot.

Thrush had queens but ran into a big cooler with Hamilton holding aces and it only got worse when Hamilton flopped the other two aces in the deck.

Now Hamilton is among the leaders and Thrush will need to work his stack back up.

Guillermo Hamilton – 764,000 (96 bb)
Nathan Thrush – 90,000 (11 bb)
