Jerry Wong

Wasim Assaf raised from middle position to 300,000, Scott Margereson called from the button, and Jerry Wong moved all in from the small blind for 3,275,000.

Assaf folded, and Margereson called with 10s10h. Wong turned over AhAd, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9d7h5s2s2d, and the aces held up for Wong to win the pot and double up in chips.

Jerry Wong  –  7,150,000  (48 bb)
Scott Margereson  –  3,125,000  (21 bb)

With 15 players remaining from a field of 1,692, the average chip stack is around 5,650,000 (38 big blinds), and they are guaranteed at least $43,780 each.
