In the last hand before the break, Koray Aldemir raised under the gun to 200,000, Ryan Riess moved all in from the button for 950,000, and Philipe Pizzari Pinto moved all in over the top from the big blind for 1,250,000. Aldemir quickly folded.

Riess turned over AhQs, and needed to improve to stay alive against Pinto’s KdKc.

The board came Kh7d6c5c6h, and Pinto flopped a set of kings and rivered a full house to win the pot and eliminate Riess in 10th place.

Philipe Pizzari Pinto  –  2,550,000  (26 bb)
Ryan Riess  –  Eliminated in 10th Place  ($87,960)
