Dominik Nitsche raised to 500,000 on the button and Justin Bonomo just called from the small blind. Matthew Siegal three-bet to 2,500,000 in the big blind and Nitsche quickly folded while Bonomo called.

The flop fell {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Bonomo checked to Siegal who instantly shoved all in for 4,820,000. Bonomo asked for a count and then needed some time to make a decision. Bonomo made the call and the cards were tabled.

Justin Bonomo: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Matthew Siegal: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Both players had a straight draw but Siegal currently held the best hand. The turn brought the {a-Clubs} giving Bonomo the straight and the {6-Diamonds} on the river secured him the win. Siegal was eliminated and Bonomo raced to the chip lead.
