Daniel Clifford min-raised from the hijack to 800,000, Taylor Wilson called from the small blind, and Marius Gierse thought for a while before he moved all in from the big blind for about 12,500,000.

Clifford called all in for about 9,900,000, and Wilson folded.

Clifford turned over QsQh, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Gierse’s AsKs.

The board came 8d6s2s6c8s, and Gierse rivered a spade flush to win the pot and eliminate Clifford in seventh place.
