After a flop of 10h9c5h with about 5.6 million already in the pot, Steven Miller bet 2,000,000 from the small blind. Aleks Petrovic moved all in from the big blind for about 10,700,000, and Mustafa Salim called all in from under the gun for 8,750,000.

Miller thought for a while before he folded.

Salim turned over QdJh for an open-ended straight draw, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Petrovic’s 10d10c (set of tens).

The turn card was the Qc, the river card was the 9s, and Petrovic won the pot with a full house, tens full of nines, to eliminate Salim in 10th place.

Aleks Petrovic  –  27,050,000  (54 bb)
Steven Miller  –  11,700,000  (23 bb)
Mustafa Salim  –  Eliminated in 10th Place  ($22,491)

With nine players remaining from a field of 6,196, the average chip stack is worth about 13,775,000 (28 big blinds). The remaining players are all guaranteed at least $22,491 each, and the next pay jump will be $33,737 for 8th place.
