Brooks Long

Brooks Long got it all in from the button for 525,000 with As8h, but he needed to improve to stay alive against the AcJd of Salvatore Sollecito in the big blind.

The board came Qc7d4dKd8d — Long pairs his eight on the river, but the same card gives Sollecito a diamond flush to win the pot and eliminate Long in eighth place.

Salvatore Sollecitom  –  5,600,000  (75 bb)

With seven players remaining, the average chip stack is about 2,675,000 (36 big blinds), and the next player to bust will receive $4,044.
