Matt Perin opened the action with a shove from early position, and Steve Mager reshoved over top from the hijack. Not wanting to miss the party, Gabriel Novelli also shoved from the cutoff.

Mager had the biggest stack going into the hand, but Novelli had the best hand preflop with {K-Clubs}{k-}. Mager showed {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades} while Perin was holding the worst of it with {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}.

The flop of {6-Clubs}{A-Spades}{2-Clubs} put Mager ahead, but the {J-Clubs} on the turn gave Perin two pair. Mager had the redraw to clubs though, as did Novelli to the smaller clubs. The {3-Hearts} river bricked out for everyone, however, and that left Perin holding the best hand.

After Mager and Novelli paid off Perin's 115,000 for the main pot, Novelli sent the rest of his stack to Mager for the side pot. Novelli collected $2,454 for 10th place.
