Satish Surapaneni raised UTG+1 to 45,000, the player in the hijack called all in for 30,000, and Skyler White reraised from the button to 300,000.

Surapaneni moved all in for about 900,000, and White tanked for a while before he called all in for 660,000.

These were their cards in descending order of chip counts:

Satish Surapaneni:  KhKd
Skyler White:  9h9d
Hijack:  Ac4s

White started chanting, “Come on, nine. Come on, nine. Come on nine.”

The flop came 10c8d7s, giving White an open-ended straight draw.

White switched to a new chant. “Come on, jack. Come on, jack.”

The turn card was the 5h, the river card was the 4d, and the pocket kings held up for Surapaneni to win the entire pot, eliminating both of the other players from the tournament.

Satish Surapaneni  –  1,650,000  (83 bb)
Skyler White  –  Eliminated in 142nd Place  ($1,985)

With 141 players remaining from a field of 4,535, the average chip stack is around 645,000 (32 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $1,985 each.
