• Level 34: 250,000-500,000, 0 ante
Connor Drinan

Board: {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}

Travis Pearson: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Connor Drinan: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts}

After a four-bet pot preflop in which Drinan was the aggressor, the two headed to the flop.

Drinan bet out the flop, Pearson raised, and Drinan called.

Drinan bet on the turn and the river, too. Pearson called both, but Drinan tabled the winning hand when he filled up fours full of aces on the river to take a two-to-one chip advantage in heads-up play.
