Mahliyo Cagatay raised UTG+1 to 900,000, Steve Miller reraised from the hijack to 2,400,000, and Victor Carrera called from the big blind. Cagatay tanked for a while before she called.

The flop came Ah7h5c, Carrera checked, and Cagatay moved all in for about 3.5 million. Miller folded (later saying he had pocket queens), and Carrera folded KsKd face up.

Cagatay showed one card — the As — as she took the pot.

Mahliyo Cagatay  –  11,150,000  (37 bb)
Victor Carrera  –  8,500,000  (28 bb)
Steve Miller  –  5,400,000  (18 bb)

With 15 players remaining from a field of 6,196, the average chip stack is worth about 8,250,000 (28 big blinds). The remaining players are all guaranteed at least $11,245 each, and the next pay jump will be $15,335 for 12th place.
