Brian Scott

Daniel Clifford raised from the cutoff to 250,000, Wasim Assaf called from the button, and Brian Scott called from the big blind.

The flop came Qd9s5s, and it checked to Assaf, who bet 425,000. Scott and Clifford both called.

The turn card paired the board with the 5c, and all three players checked.

The river card was the 10c, and it checked to Assaf, who bet 550,000. Scott called, and Clifford folded. Assaf showed As8s for ace high (he missed his flush draw), and Scott turned over Qs7d to win the pot with two pair, queens and fives.

Brian Scott  –  9,800,000  (78 bb)
Daniel Clifford  –  3,000,000  (24 bb)
Wasim Assaf  –  4,125,000  (33 bb)

With 16 players remaining from a field of 1,692, the average chip stack is around 5,300,000 (42 big blinds), and they are guaranteed at least $43,780 each.
