After a flop of QcJd8d with more than 300K in the pot, Ryan Olisar checked under the gun, Zachary Mullennix bet 125,000 from the button, and Olisar check-raised all in for about 840,000.

Mullennix tanked for a while before he called all in for 710,000 with KdKc. Olisar turned over Ad9d for a diamond flush draw with an overcard, and Mullennix needed his kings to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the 2c, the river card was the 6h, and the pocket kings held up for Mullennix to win the pot and double up in chips, knocking Olisar down to just five big blinds.

Zachary Mullennix  –  1,750,000  (70 bb)
Ryan Olisar  –  130,000  (5 bb)

The next hand, after a flop of 7d5d2s, Olisar got it all in from the big blind with Qs3s for queen high, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the Ac9s of Brian Altman (UTG).

The turn card paired the board with the 7s, the river card double-paired the board with the 2d, and Altman won the pot with his ace to eliminate Olisar in sixth place.

Brian Altman  –  1,275,000  (51 bb)
Ryan Olisar  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($10,100)

With five players remaining, the average stack is about 875,000 (35 big blinds), and the next player to bust will earn $13,245.
