After a flop of AcQh9s, David MacDonald got his short stack all in under the gun with Kh10h (king high with a gutshot straight draw), and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the 8d5s (eight high) of Amin Akhlaghi in the big blind.

The turn card was the 10s, the river card was the 5c, and MacDonald paired his ten on the turn to clinch the pot and double up in chips.

David MacDonald  –  2,400,000  (12 bb)
Amin Akhlaghi  –  12,450,000  (62 bb)

With seven players remaining from a field of 4,184, the average chip stack is about 11,950,000 (60 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $35,300 each.
