Koray Aldemir raised from middle position to 12,000, Josh Reichard reraised from the hijack to 36,000, and Daniel Clifford moved all in from the button for 88,000.

Aldemir folded, and Reichard asked for an exact count and thought for a bit before he called with 7h5h. Clifford turned over AhQc, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came KcJh6s2hJs, and Reichard turned a heart flush draw, but improved no further. Clifford won the pot with his ace to double up in chips.

Daniel Clifford  –  203,000  (34 bb)
Josh Reichard  –  600,000  (100 bb)

With 141 players remaining from a field of 1,070, the average chip stack is around 304,000 (51 big blinds). The final 134 players will finish in the money, with a min-cash worth $7,530.
