Jonathan Kranker started the hand in the big blind with 550,000, and after putting 400,000 in for the ante, he was forced all in for 150,000 in the big blind.

Raminder Singh moved all in over the top from middle position for 1,400,000, and Juan Endara moved all in over the top of that from the button for about 10 million. Everyone else folded.

Juan Endara:  AcKd
Raminder Singh:  AdQc
Jonathan Kranker:  Kc7c

Three-Way All-In Situation

The flop came 9c9h5h, and the turn card double-paired the board with the 5s. As long as the river card was anything but an ace or a king, Singh would survive.

The river card was — the As.

Endara won the entire pot with two pair, aces and nines with a king kicker, to eliminate Kranker in ninth place and Singh in eighth place.

Juan Endara  –  12,300,000  (31 bb)
Raminder Singh  –  Eliminated in 8th Place  ($42,525)
Jonathan Kranker  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($32,845)

With seven players remaining, the average chip stack is about 12,150,000 (30 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $53,405 each.
