Brian Scott raised UTG+1 to 600,000, Peter Mugar moved all in from the hijack for about 8,700,000, and Daniel Clifford went into the tank for a while in the small blind before he called all in for about 7,800,000. Scott quickly folded.

Clifford turned over QsQc, but he was dominated by Mugar’s KhKc. Clifford needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 5s4c2s6d3s, and the board brought a six-high straight to save Clifford’s tournament life with a chopped pot.

Peter Mugar  –  9,300,000  (31 bb)
Daniel Clifford  –  8,400,000  (28 bb)
