Scott Ball

Fabian Brandes opened to 500,000 in the cutoff, Scott Ball three-bet to 1,800,000 on the button, and Brandes called.

The dealer spread the {q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop, Brandes potted, and Ball's remaining 1,750,000 went into the middle.

Scott Ball: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Fabian Brandes: {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

The {4-Spades} turn kept Ball in front, but the {9-Hearts} river gave Brandes tens and nines to eliminate Ball in fifth place for $342,590.
