David Berman got it all in from the big blind for about 1.6 million with As6s, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the 8h8d of Nick Pupillo on the button.

The board came KhJs8sKs5h — Berman briefly thought he won the pot when he turned a spade flush, but then he realized that Pupillo had flopped a set of eights and turned a full house.

Pupillo won the pot with his full house to eliminate Berman in third place.
