Thomas Yang raised from middle position to 90,000, Ari Engel called from the cutoff, and Doug Marro called from the big blind.

The flop came 6d4s2s, Marro moved all in for 185,000, Yang called all in for 75,000, and Engel called, covering both players.

Engel:  AhQs10s6h  (pair of sixes, spade flush draw)
Marro:  Jc9d6c4d  (two pair, sixes and fours)
Yang:  Kc8d7d7c  (pair of sevens, gutshot straight draw)

The turn card was the 8h, the river card was the Qc, and Engel won the entire pot with the highest two pair, queens and sixes, to eliminate both of his opponents from the tournament.

Ari Engel  –  1,280,000  (51 bb)
Doug Marro  –  Eliminated in 8th Place  ($5,900)
Thomas Yang  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($4,485)

With seven players remaining from a field of 429 entries, the average chip stack is around 1,225,000 (49 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $7,320 each.
