Brian Hastings opened from the small blind to 600,000 and Nick Schulman three-bet the pot to 1.8 million. Hastings shoved for 2.01 million and Schulman called.

Nick Schulman: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
Brian Hastings: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

Schulman appeared to be in a commanding position with a pair of kings and Hastings needing low outs. However, the board ran out {6-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{q-Spades}{2-Clubs}, giving Hastings queens up and Schulman an 8-7-6-2-A for the two to chop in an unusual fashion.

On the following hand, Schulman raised to 600,000 and Hastings three-bet to 1.8 million as a pot-sized raise. Schulman four-bet to put Hastings all in and Hastings called off his same 2.01 million

Nick Schulman: {a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Brian Hastings: {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}

The board came out {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{a-Spades}{7-Spades}, giving Hastings the lead on the flop with jacks up, followed by Schulman taking the lead with aces up after the turn, and finally seeing Hastings fill up on his flush draw to win the pot and double up.
