After a flop of 6h5h2h, Santana Noronha got it all in from the small blind for 620,000 with 8h2c for a pair of deuces with an eight-high heart flush draw.

But Noronha needed to improve to stay alive against Darren Snow, who had Ah6d in the big blind for a pair of sixes with an ace-high flush draw.

The turn card was the 9c, and the river card was — the 8c. Noronha rivered trip eights to win the pot and double up in chips.

Santana Noronha  –  1,390,000  (28 bb)
Darren Snow  –  1,040,000  (21 bb)

With three players remaining from a field of 214, the average chip stack is about 1,425,000 (29 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $7,350 each.
