Orlando Maldonado raised under the gun to about 200,000, Loni Hui moved all in from the small blind for 1,270,000, and Maldonado called with 6d6c.

Hui turned over 10s10d, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9h9d7d8cQh — both players turned open-ended straight draws on opposite ends of the board, but the river card was a blank. Hui won the pot with her pocket tens to double up in chips.

Loni Hui  –  2,700,000  (34 bb)
Orlando Maldonado  –  1,020,000  (13 bb)

With six players remaining, the average chip stack is about 3,240,000 (41 big blinds), and they are all guaranteed at least $17,595 each.
