Juan Endara raised from the button to about 2.5 million, Ricardo Velasco moved all in from the small blind for about 10.5 million, and Endara snap-called all in for about 10.5 million with QhQd.

Velasco turned over 3s3h, and the two players were nearly even in chips.

The board came 7c5c2c10c7h — there was a club flush draw for the board on the turn, and since neither player had a club, it would have chopped the pot, saving Velasco. But the river card was a heart, and Endara won the pot with his pocket queens.

The chip stacks were counted down, and Endara had 10.5 million to Velasco’s 10.8 million, leaving Velasco with just 300,000 in chips — less than a small blind.

Seat 1.  Ricardo Velasco  –  300,000  (<1 sb)
Seat 2.  Michael Nye  –  61,800,000  (62 bb)
Seat 3.  Juan Endara  –  23,300,000  (23 bb)

With three players remaining, the average chip stack is about 28.4 million (28 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $172,250 each.
