After a flop of 7d5s4d, Brian Altman moved all in from the big blind for 425,000, and Zachary Mullennix called from the button with Ks7c for a pair of sevens.

Altman turned over 7s2s for a pair of sevens with a lower kicker, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ah, and the river card was — the 2c.

Altman spiked a deuce on the river to win the pot with two pair and double up in chips.

Brian Altman  –  1,070,000  (27 bb)
Zachary Mullennix  –  2,480,000  (62 bb)

About 10 minutes later, after a flop of Js5s3c, Brian Altman checked the small blind, Zachary Mullennix checked the big blind, and Aidan Hynes bet 55,000 from the button.

Altman check-raised to 160,000, and then Mullennix check-three-bet-all-in, easily covering both players. Hynes and Altman both folded, and Mullennix took the pot.

Seat 1.  Zachary Mullennix  –  2,750,000  (69 bb)
Seat 2.  Aidan Hynes  –  795,000  (20 bb)
Seat 3.  Brian Altman  –  830,000  (21 bb)

With three players remaining, the average stack is about 1,460,000 (37 big blinds), and the next player to bust will earn $23,740.
