Brett Apter made it 400,000 on the button and Tommy Nguyen defended his big blind. The {j-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop and {10-Clubs} turn got checked through.

With an easy flick of the wrist, Nguyen threw in 600,000 on the {8-Spades} river and Apter came along with a call. Nguyen tabled {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} for a flopped set of deuces and won the hand.

Apter Takes From Zyrin

SandraBarbour • Level 43: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

Brett Apter limped from the small blind, and Anatolii Zyrin, in the big blind, checked.

On a flop of {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, Apter fired 200,000 and Zyrin raised to 475,000. Apter responded by three-betting to 1,000,000. Zyrin added the remainder to call.

The turn came the {4-Hearts}, and Apter threw in another bet of 1,000,000. Zyrin let it go.

Adrian Scarpa Eliminated in 4th Place ($77,591)

On the button, Adrian Scarpa moved all in for 2,850,000. Tommy Nguyen took his time in the small blind before reshoving all in and Brett Apter folded the big blind.

Adrian Scarpa: {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Tommy Nguyen: {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

"Ace-eight versus ace-five!" Scarpa yelled to his rail in the Thunderdome, who anxiously jumped on their feet to watch the action unfold. The {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop paired up Nguyen's inferior kicked, and the rail let an "Oh God!" escape in anguish.

"Seven baby!" they quickly rooted, but neither the {k-Spades} turn nor {a-Diamonds} river would turn it around for their champion. The Foxwoods regular saw a fantastic run come to an end in fourth place, worth a payday of $77,591.

Another One for Nguyen

Tommy Nguyen has been trending nothing but up after the dinner break and just dragged another sizable pot to move himself up over the 5M mark. After raising on the button and Anatolii Zyrin defending his big blind, Nguyen saw a {k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop appear and checked behind.

Zyrin bet 250,000 on the {7-Spades} turn and Nguyen swiftly called. On the {7-Clubs} river, Zyrin casually splashed in 650,000 and Nguyen called after thirty seconds. Zyrin held nothing more than {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and Nguyen took it down with {10-Spades}{9-Hearts}

In a blind-on-blind confrontation, Tommy Nguyen bet 175,000 on a {6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop and Brett Apter called. On the {10-Spades} turn, Nguyen checked, Apter bet 420,000, and Nguyen called.

The river was the {8-Spades} and Nguyen checked. Apter took his time, rhythmically shuffling his chips, before settling on a bet of 900,000. Nguyen took around five seconds to flick in a calling ship, but Apter showed him the winner with {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for a flopped two pair.
