With the board showing Jc7h4s7d on the turn and more than 1.5 million already in the pot, Matthew Wantman checked from the cutoff, Daniel Clifford bet 675,000 from the button, and Wantman thought for a while before he check-raised all in.

Clifford snap-called all in for 2,250,000 with 7s7c for quad sevens. Wantman turned over QdQc, and he was drawing dead.

The meaningless river card was the 4d, and Clifford won the pot with his quad sevens to double up in chips.

Daniel Clifford  –  6,200,000  (62 bb)
Matthew Wantman  –  550,000  (6 bb)

With 22 players remaining from a field of 1,692, the average chip stack is around 3,845,000 (38 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $29,480 each.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight for as long as it takes to get down to the final two tables (16 players).
