A player min-raised UTG+1 to 3,000, the player in the hijack called, and Rainer Kempe moved all in from the button for 11,500.

The UTG+1 player moved all in over the top for about 60,000, and the hijack folded.

Kempe turned over 8s8d, and needed it to hold to stay alive against his opponent’s 6d6c.

The board came QsQh7c5d3d, and the pocket eights held up for Kempe to win the pot and double up in chips.

Rainer Kempe  –  30,000  (20 bb)

With approximately 160 players remaining from an unofficial field of 413 entries, the average chip stack is about 51,500 (34 big blinds). The official prizepool should be released soon, and we expect it to be worth more than $800,000.
