Brett Apter

Brett Apter was able to more than triple his last 55,000 in chips up one hand after the monster hand with Laura Hoppe, then got his new 265,000 chip stack in preflop the very next hand against Brent Cunningham.

Brett Apter: {10-Spades}{3-Spades}
Brent Cunningham: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Apter pulled ahead on the {8-Spades}{9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} flop, and held on the {6-Spades} turn and {2-Clubs} river to double back to 680,000.

After folding his big blind, Apter three-bet shoved for 480,000 from the small blind over a raise from Kevin Garosshen on the button. Garosshen called.

Brett Apter: {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Kevin Garosshen: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Apter's attempt to spin up the crumbs came to an end when the {3-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} board gave Garosshen a full house and left the WSOP Bracelet winner Apter out in fourth.
