Nigel Murray raised from the cutoff to 400,000, Alejandro Gonzalez Olaechea moved all in from the button for 1,975,000, and Murray tanked for a while before he called with QhJh.

Olaechea turned over Ad4d, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8s5s2h6hAh, and Olaechea paired his ace on the river, but the same card gave Murray a heart flush. Murray won the pot to eliminate Olaechea in 22nd place.

Nigel Murray  –  5,900,000  (39 bb)
