Aaron Flores min-raised from UTG/cutoff to 80,000, chipleader Brandon Hamlet moved all in from the small blind, and Flores snap-called all in for 890,000 with KsKd.

Hamlet turned over 6s6c, and Flores needed his kings to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8h4s2s3cAh, and Hamlet turned a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Flores won the pot with his pocket kings to double into the chip lead.

Aaron Flores  –  1,860,000  (47 bb)
Brandon Hamlet  –  1,200,000  (30 bb)

With four players remaining from a field of 257, the average chip stack is around 1,285,000 (32 big blinds), and they are guaranteed at least $34,050 each.
