Michael Marder

Tam Nguyen opened for 500,000 and Michael Marder three-bet to 2,000,000 from the small blind. Action was on Jeffrey Gross who four-bet all in from the big blind and was called by both opponents.

Tam Nguyen: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}
Jeffrey Gross: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Michael Marder: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

In a three-way battle, each player woke up with premium hands with Nguyen holding the best with pocket aces.

The flop fell {3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{5-Clubs} and Nguyen got a nice sweat with the {4-Hearts} turn giving Marder the nut-flush draw.

Unfortunately for Marder, the river fell a brick with the {j-Spades} and he was eliminated in 3rd place while Nguyen took down the monster pot getting a 10,850,000 double up from Gross.
