Daniel Buzgon raises to 70,000 from early position and Ryan Brown three-bets to 140,000 from the hijack. After a few folds, the small blind moves all in for 305,000.

Buzgon folds and Brown quickly calls. Brown shows AcAh and is in the lead against the small blind’s JcJd.

The board runs out Ts4d3h9s4h and Brown’s rockets hold up to win the pot and eliminate a player in the process.

“I’m only three-betting the nuts against you,” says Brown to Buzgon after the hand.

Ryan Brown – 1,640,000 (54 bb)
