Vladyslav Shovkovyi raised from the cutoff to 900,000, Ari Engel reraised from the button to 3,600,000, and Shovkovyi moved all in.

Engel called all in for roughly 5.5 million with AdJd, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Shovkovyi’s 10s10d.

The board came QsQc4d6s4h, and the pocket tens held up for Shovkovyi to win the pot and eliminate Engel in fifth place.

Vladyslav Shovkovyi  –  52,700,000  (132 bb)
Ari Engel  –  Eliminated in 5th Place  ($94,300)

As Engel was leaving the table, Darryll Fish told him what he had in their big hand before the break.

“I had the nut flush,” said Fish.

With four players remaining from a field of 3,989, the average chip stack is around 19,900,000 (50 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $124,600 each.
