Phil Galfond opened to 1,200 and Jeff Madsen three-bet the small blind to 3,250. The big blind cold-called and Galfond called also.

The flop fell {8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Madsen continued for 4,175 with the big blind folding.

Galfond went into the tank for several minutes before eventually moving all in for roughly 16,400 as Madsen quickly called for his 19,475 chip stack.

Galfond: {Q-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Madsen: {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}

The turn and river landed the {2-Hearts} and {10-Clubs} and Galfond was eliminated as Madsen climbed to over 45,000 in chips.
