Jason Lipiner

Craig Varnell raised to 300,000 from middle position, Jason Lipiner three-bet shoved from the big blind for 640,000, and Varnell called to put him at risk.

Craig Varnell: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Jason Lipiner: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

The two players had nearly identical hands but Varnell had a slight preflop advantage. The board ran out {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{J-Spades} and Varnell took the pot with a pair of eights to end Lipiner's deep run in this event.
