David Frenkel

After a flop of Qc9d3c, both blinds check, and David Frenkel bets 2,000,000 from the hijack. Raffaello Locatelli calls from the cutoff, Corel Theuma calls from the small blind, and Colby Covington folds the big blind.

The turn card was the 4d, Theuma checks, and Frenkel moves all in for 6,175,000. Locatelli folds, and Theuma tanks for a while before he calls with QdJh for a pair of queens.

But Frenkel turns over 9s9c for a set of nines, and Theuma is drawing dead.

The meaningless river card is the 10s, and Frenkel wins the pot to double up in chips.

David Frenkel  –  19,850,000  (66 bb)
Corel Theuma  –  6,400,000  (21 bb)

With 17 players remaining from a field of 7,703, the average chip stack is about 9,050,000 (30 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $10,931 each.
