Over the past 45 minutes since Arian Stolt was eliminated in third place, Nolan King slowly opened up a lead of more than 2-to-1 over Sean Winter.

Nolan King  –  7,100,000  (95 bb)
Sean Winter  –  3,400,000  (45 bb)

Both players put in 200,000 each to see a flop of Kd8h4d. Winter checked, King bet 250,000, and Winter check-raised to 700,000.

King tanked for a while before he moved all in, and Winter quickly called all in for 3,125,000 with Kh8s for two pair, kings and eights.

King turned over KsQh, for a single pair of kings, and Winter needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ac, the river card was the 10c, and Winter won the pot with his two pair to double up in chips.

Sean Winter  –  6,725,000  (90 bb)
Nolan King  –  3,775,000  (50 bb)
