Carlos Chadha Villamarin raised under the gun to 125,000, Luke Brereton reraised from the small blind to 315,000, and Mitchell Halverson called all in from the big blind for 290,000. Villamarin thought for a while before he also called.

The main pot was worth 920,000, and the side pot between Brereton and Villamarin was worth 50,000. Any additional betting would go into the side pot.

Both players checked to the river on a board of 8h7d5d3sAs, Brereton checked, Villamarin bet 50,000, and Brereton folded. Villamarin took the side pot.

For the main pot, Halverson showed KhKd, but Villamarin turned over AhQc to win the pot with a rivered pair of aces, eliminating Halverson in fifth place.
