Todd Dreyer made it 5,000,000 on the button, Robert Valden called from the small blind and Andrew Donadebian called from the big blind. The {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} saw two lightning-quick shoved from Valden — 15,000,000 --, and from Donabedian for 11,100,000.

Dreyer took minutes to assess the situation and held his hand on his hands. If he'd overcall all in, there was a chance he'd win the bracelet on the spot. Eventually, he opted to lay it down to leave it to the other two.

Andrew Donabedian: {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Robert Valden: {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Spades}

"You both had draws?! I had a higher flush draw," Dreyer said upon seeing both wraps. It became even worse for him as the board ran out {5-Hearts} {a-Clubs}, which would've given him the winner. Instead, it was Donabedian who tripled up with his flush and Valden was left short.
