John Miller limped under the gun for 80,000, Scott Woodring raised UTG+1 to 215,000, and Veljko Lakusic moved all in from the small blind for 1,620,000.

Miller folded, and Woodring thought for a while before he called with KcQh.

Lakusic turned over QdQc, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came Jc6c6s6dJh, and Lakusic’s queens held up to win the pot with a higher full house than the board, sixes full of queens, to double up in chips.

Veljko Lakusic  –  3,480,000  (44 bb)
Scott Woodring  –  4,300,000  (54 bb)

With 31 players remaining from a field of 4,535, the average chip stack is around 2,925,000 (37 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $6,985 each.
