After a flop of 7d5d3c, the player in the small blind bet 15,000, Jake Ferro called from the big blind, and Christopher Frank raised UTG+1 to 100,000.

The player in the small blind went into the tank for a very long time, until eventually another player called for a clock. A floorperson arrived, and the countdown went all the way to zero, and the small blind’s hand was killed.

Ferro thought for a moment or two before he called Frank’s raise.

The turn card paired the board with the 5h, and both players checked.

The river card was the 6c, Ferro bet 100,000, and Frank snap-called. Ferro showed Ad4h for a seven-high straight, and Frank mucked his cards. Ferro won the pot.

Jake Ferro  –  1,055,000  (88 bb)
Christopher Frank  –  1,000,000  (83 bb)

With about 171 players remaining from a field of 1,692, the average chip stack is around 495,000 (41 big blinds). The field is in the money, with the remaining players guaranteed at least $6,400 each.
