Giuseppe Calio min-raised from middle position to 50,000, and Luke Brereton moved all in from the cutoff for 245,000. Mike Vanier tanked for a while before he called from the big blind, and Calio folded.

Brereton turned over 9h9d, but he needed to improve to stay alive against Vanier’s KsKd.

The board came 9s8c6d3d4d, and Brereton flopped a set of nines to win the pot and double up in chips.

Luke Brereton  –  585,000  (23 bb)
Mike Vanier  –  480,000  (19 bb)

With eight players remaining from a field of 227, the average chip stack is around 570,000 (23 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $13,200 each.
