With the final board showing Qs5c4c6d2s and more than 300K already in the pot, Peter Muehlbek checked from the hijack, Darin Utley moved all in from the cutoff for 170,000, and Muehlbek tanked for a while before he called with Qh8h for a pair of queens.

But Utley turned over 3s3d to win the pot with a six-high straight and double up in chips.

Darin Utley  –  710,000  (47 bb)
Peter Muehlbek  –  425,000  (28 bb)

With eight players remaining from a field of 159, the average chip stack is around 400,000 (27 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $1,625 each.
