Ricardo Quintero raised to 32,000 from under the gun, Marc Saia called in the small blind, and Paul Willenbring called in the big blind.

The flop was Kh5s2c, Saia led for 16,000, Willenbring called, and Quintero called all in for 4,000.

The turn was the Qs, Saia bet his remaining 9,000, and Willenbring called.

Here were their hands in descending order of chip counts:

Willenbring:  AcQc8c7h  (pair of queens, seven-five low draw)
Saia:  As8h4s4h  (nut flush draw, five-four low draw)
Quintero:  Ah10s6s2d  (broadway draw, inferior flush draw, six-five low draw)

The river was the 7s, giving Saia the nut flush along with a seven-five low to scoop the pot and eliminate Quintero in seventh place.

Mara Saia  –  170,000  (5 BB)
Paul Willenbring  –  200,000  (6 BB)
Ricardo Quintero  –  Eliminated in 7th Place  ($1,575)

With six players remaining, the average chip stack is around 258,000 (8 Big Bets), and they are all guaranteed at least $1,815 each.
