Kelly Alonso raised under the gun to 1,700,000, Vendel Johnson moved all in from the cutoff for 2,100,000, and Alonso called with AhQs.

But Johnson turned over AsKs, and he needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came KcQd2h8d6h — both players flopped a pair, but Johnson won the pot with his pair of kings to double up in chips.

Vendel Johnson  –  4,525,000  (36 bb)
Kelly Alonso  –  1,385,000  (11 bb)

With 10 players remaining, the average stack is around 2,195,000 (18 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $3,930 each.
