Nick Schulman

Brian Hastings raised to 250,000 from the button, and Nick Schulman three-bet to 750,000 in the big blind. Hastings called.

Schulman bet 1.5 million on the {7-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop, then called when Hastings jammed for 2.45 million.

Brian Hastings: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Nick Schulman: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

Hastings had the lead for high with his pair of queens and nut flush draw, while Schulman had the nut low draw and could hit an ace or king to take the lead for high. The {3-Spades} turn improved Schulman to the nut low, and gave him an additional out to scoop the pot and win the tournament outright with the {3-Diamonds}. The {5-Diamonds} river bricked off, and the duo chopped the pot.
