Brandon Navarrete raised from the button to 350,000, Nick Palma moved all in from the small blind, and Navarrete called all in for 515,000 with Ac7c.

Palma turned over QhQd, and Navarrete needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jc9s6s2c4d — Navarrete turned a club flush draw, but improved no further. Palma won the pot with his pocket queens to eliminate Navarrete in third place.
