Three players saw a flop of Qc10s7s, and Jim Collopy checked the small blind. Raul Hernandez bet 250,000 from the big blind, Mike Liang called under the gun, and Collopy folded.

The turn card was the 5h, Hernandez bet 500,000, and Liang thought for a while before he called.

The river card was the Qs, Hernandez moved all in for 1,475,000, and Liang asked for a count and thought for a bit before he called with Ks6s for a king-high spade flush.

But Hernandez turned over Qd5s to win the pot with a full house, queens full of fives, and double up in chips.

Raul Hernandez  –  5,200,000  (52 bb)
Mike Liang  –  2,725,000  (27 bb)

With 11 players remaining from a field of 1,110, the average chip stack is around 4,025,000 (40 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $69,900 each.
