Tamon Nakamura

Roman Hrabec bet the pot in early position and Tamon Nakamura in middle position re-potted 960,000. Hrabec thought over the situation before calling with 895,000.

Roman Hrabec: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Tamon Nakamura: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} to save Hrabec from elimination after making two pair and leaving Nakamura with just 65,000.

Nakamura got the last of his chips in shortly after in a blind-versus-blind hand where Nakamura had {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} against the {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{9-Spades} of Sterling Lopez. The board ran out {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} to give Lopez a straight and send Nakamura to the payout desk.
