There was a big four-way preflop all-in situation at Table 15, and these were their cards in descending order of chip counts:

Small Blind:  QsQd
Willy Stadele (cutoff):  AhAd
Michael Storms (UTG):  KhKd
Frank Jacoub (MP):  AsJh

The board came 8d6d5h6cJc, and the aces held up for Stadele to win the entire pot, doubling thru the small blind and eliminating the other two players with shorter stacks.

Willy Stadele  –  3,850,000  (96 bb)
Michael Storms  –  Eliminated in 89th Place  ($3,240)
Frank Jacoub  –  Eliminated in 90th Place  ($3,240)

With 88 players remaining from a field of 6,134, the average chip stack is about 1,390,000 (35 big blinds). The field is in the money, and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $3,240 each.
