Brandon Shack-Harris was first to act and opened the action with a raise to 800,000. Small blind Loren Klein folded instantly but big blind Rep Porter had bigger plans. He three-bet to 2.6 million and Shack-Harris, after giving it some thought, shoved for 3,880,000 total. Porter called.

Brandon Shack-Harris: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Rep Porter: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The rail asked for the {8-Clubs} in the window but instead got the {8-Hearts}, followed by the {7-Spades} and {2-Diamonds}.

Shack-Harris had paired up but needed more help. The {2-Hearts} on the turn was one of the worst cards in the deck for him. The rail asked for an "eight-ball" but didn't get it; {Q-Spades} on the river.

Shack-Harris eliminated in third place for $433,259. Loren Klein and Rep Porter are now guaranteed $629,378, playing for the first-place prize of $1,018,336.
