Carlos Chadha Villamarin moved all in from the small blind, and Michael Graffeo tanked for a while before he called all in from the big blind for 835,000 with Kd9d.

Villamarin turned over Ac7d, and Graffeo needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came KcQc10c3s10d, and Graffeo won the pot with a flopped pair of kings, fading multiple draws from Villamarin to win the pot and double up in chips.

Michael Graffeo  –  1,730,000  (29 bb)
Carlos Chadha Villamarin  –  3,560,000  (59 bb)

With three players remaining from a field of 345, the average chip stack is around 2,300,000 (38 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $31,400 each.
