Padraig Burns moved all in from the cutoff for 185,000, and Mark McGarity moved all in over the top from the small blind for about 750,000 with KsKc.

Burns turned over As9h, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The flop came 9s9c4c, and Burns flopped trip nines to take a huge lead.

But the turn card was — the Kh!

McGarity turned a full house, kings full of nines, and Burns needed the fourth nine on the river to stay alive.

The river card was the 2h, and McGarity won the pot with his full house to eliminate Burns in fifth place.

Mark McGarity  –  990,000  (33 bb)
