Hand #44: John Hesp raised it up to 3 million from middle position, and Benjamin Pollak called on the button. Both the blinds folded, and Hesp and Pollak saw a flop of {10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Hesp bet 3 million, and Pollak quickly called. The {4-Spades} hit the turn, and Hesp bet 3 million again. Pollak again called, and the {7-Spades} hit the river. Hesp checked this time, and Pollak didn't take long to bet 10 million. Hesp thought about it for nearly three minutes before calling, and Pollak showed {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for a rivered straight. Jack Effel announced that Hesp showed ace-ten, and Pollak scooped a big pot.

Hand #45: Hesp raised it up to 2.5 million, and Scott Blumstein called next to act. It folded to Jack Sinclair on the button and he shoved for his final 12,350,000, and it folded back to Hesp, who laid it down. Blumstein was next, and he thought for about a minute before releasing his hand, giving Sinclair the pot.

Hand #46: Action folded around to Bryan Piccioli in the small blind, and he limped in after eyeballing Dan Ott's stack. Ott then raised it up to 2.8 million, and Piccioli released his hand, giving Ott the pot.

Hand #47: Blumstein raised it up to 2.2 million from under the gun, and it folded around to Hesp in the big blind. He called, and they went heads up to a flop of {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}. Both players checked, and the {10-Spades} hit the turn. Hesp tapped the felt again, and Blumstein fired 3 million. Hesp check-raised to 7 million, and Blumstein didn't take long to reraise to 17 million. Hesp shot up out of his chair, then moved all in. Blumstein snap called, making it the biggest pot of the tournament.

Blumstein: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}
Hesp: {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Blumstein and his rail went crazy when the cards were flipped, as Hesp was drawing dead with his two pair to the top set of Blumstein. The meaningless river was the {3-Clubs}, and Blumstein scored a massive double up to 156,050,000, while Hesp tumbled down to 24,225,000.
