Kyle Merron was on the button and raised to 2M (2.475M behind). Greg Nerenberg looked at his cards in the big blind and quickly announced all-in. Merron called immediately and would be at risk.

Merron A♥Q♦ vs Nerenberg A♦J♦ Pot: 9.175M

Board: 3♥6♦5♦8♥10♥

The flop gave Nerenberg a flush draw to drastically improve his previously dominated holding. Merron faded all of those outs and gets a crucial double up through the chip-leader. Shankar Pillai is now the shortest stack at the table with ~8M.
