Mike Vanier raised or moved all in from the button, and Ky Nguyen called or shoved from the big blind for about 575,000 with AhJc.

Vanier turned over 7c3c, and Nguyen needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 7h7dKsAd9d — Vanier flopped trip sevens, Nguyen paired his ace on the turn, and the river card was a blank. Vanier won the pot with his trip sevens to eliminate Nguyen in fifth place.
