David Thurston limped in from the small blind and Ilya Dyment checked his option in the big blind.

The flop was Qc7s3c, Thurston checked, Dyment bet 80,000, Thurston check-raised the pot, Dyment reraised all in for 640,000, and Thurston called with a slightly covering stack.

Thurston:  As8h7d2s
Dyment:  AcQsQh4s

Dyment was ahead for the high with a set of queens, while Thurston had the nut low draw.

The 10c turn and 9s river completed the board, safe for Dyment to double into the chip lead.

Down to 50,000, Thurston busted shortly thereafter in third place.
