Rick Alvarado

Down to his last 900,000, Rick Alvarado moved all-in from the button. Clayton Jiang folded his small blind and Brian Altman called from the big blind.

Alvarado tabled Q♠10♦ and Altman showed A♣7♠. Alvarado faced elimination after a flop of K♦7♦3♠ and needed help when the 3♦ fell on the turn. But the 10♣ on the river secured a double-up instead of an exit.

Brian Altman – 5,560,000
Rick Alvarado – 1,820,000
