With the board showing Kd9s4cQs on the turn, Aidan Hynes checked from UTG/cutoff, Brian Altman bet 115,000 from the button, and Hynes thought for a while before he called.

The river card was the 3h, Hynes checked, Altman moved all in, and Hynes snap-called with Jc10c for a turned king-high straight.

Altman turned over 8c5c for eight high, and Hynes won the pot with his straight to double up in chips.

Aidan Hynes  –  1,140,000  (46 bb)
Brian Altman  –  1,100,000  (44 bb)

One hand later, the level came to an end and the players took a 15-minute break. These were their official chip counts:

Seat 1.  Zachary Mullennix  –  1,855,000  (62 bb)
Seat 2.  Aidan Hynes  –  1,125,000  (38 bb)
Seat 3.  Brian Altman  –  910,000  (30 bb)
Seat 4.  Manuel Amaro  –  490,000  (16 bb)

The players returned from break to begin Level 24, with increased blinds of 15,000-30,000 with a 30,000 ante.

With four players remaining, the average stack is about 1,095,000 (37 big blinds), and the next player to bust will earn $17,615.
