Dan Lowery and Dennis Thurman are far from done in their heads up battle. The two traded all-in wins and are near even. 

Thurman raised to 375,000 and Lowery called to the 6♣5♣2 flop. Lowery checked and Thurman bet 500,000 which Lowery called. The 9♠ turn was checked by Lowery and Thurman moved all-in for 4,100,000. Lowery debated and called with 63, needing to hit against Thurman's 55. The river missed Lowery and Thurman doubled.

Lowery raised the button and Thurman called to the Q♠106♠ flop. Thurman led for 500,000 and Lowery moved all-in for 1,695,000. Thurman called with 10♠2 for top pair and Lowery's J♠8♠ draw had plenty of outs. The 3♠ turn locked him up the pot and the double.

Lowery took the lead soon after with another all-in. Thurman raised the button to 400,000 and Lowery called to the 643♠ flop. Lowery checked, Thurman bet 500,000 and Lowery jammed for 3,500,000 total. Thurman called with A♣4♣ and led the 53 of Lowery. The 3♠ turn gave Lowery trips and he doubled up.

Lowery had a chance to close out the match but Thurman's luck wasn't done yet. Thurman moved all-in for 2,245,000 with 55♠ and Lowery called with 77. The A♠Q♠5 flop struck gold for Thurman and his set won the pot by the river.

Dan Lowery - 5,250,000
