Action folded to Brandon Shack-Harris on the button and he raised to 350,000. Jerry Wong three-bet the pot from the small blind, Shack-Harris announced a pot-sized four-bet, and Wong called to put himself at risk for a total of 1,845,000.

Brandon Shack-Harris: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Jerry Wong: {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Shack-Harris had the best of it with his aces and Wong needed help from the deck to survive. Although Shack-Harris extended his lead when he made trips on the {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop, the {K-Diamonds} turn gave Wong a flush draw. Even though it didn't come in, the final card was the {K-Spades} to give Wong trip kings for the double-up.

"I need a shower," said Wong as the dealer verified the stacks before pushing the pot Wong's way.
