Shaffer checked as well and the turn came down as {q-Hearts}. Sullivan slid out a bet of 175,000 and Shaffer spent a minute deciding to raise to 400,000. Sullivan made the call and we went to the river of {7-Diamonds}. Sullivan checked and Shaffer announced a bet of 800,000. Sullivan made the call. Shaffer showed {6-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for a straight and Sullivan mucked his hand.

Sullivan: {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Shaffer: {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Sullivan got it in with a bit of an advantage, but his lead melted on the flop of {5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. His rail started calling for a three, but he didn't find any help on the turn or river of {6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Shaffer won the hand with trip twos and Sullivan was eliminated from the tournament in second place. He will collect $258,695 for his runner-up finish.
