Brian Altman moved all in from the button for 710,000, and chipleader Zachary Mullennix thought for a bit before he moved all in over the top from the small blind with 9s9h.

Altman turned over Ac5h, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Ah9d4h10hQs, and Mullennix flopped a set of nines to win the pot and eliminate Altman in third place.
