Randy Pfeifer
Chipleader Randy Pfeifer

Dan Colman raised under the gun to 90,000, Marc Macdonnell called from the cutoff, and Randy Pfeifer called from the big blind.

All three players checked to the turn on a board of As6h4h5s, and it checked to Macdonnell, who bet 220,000. Pfeifer and Colman both called.

The river card was the Js, and Pfeifer bet 325,000. Colman tanked for a while before he folded, and Macdonnell called with 8c7c for an eight-high straight on the turn. But Pfeifer turned over KsQs to win the pot with a spade flush on the river.

Randy Pfeifer  –  5,250,000  (131 bb)
Dan Colman  –  2,700,000  (68 bb)
Marc Macdonnell  –  2,825,000  (71 bb)

With more than 5 million in chips, Pfeifer is the chipleader. With 16 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 1.7 million (43 big blinds).
