Sean Perry moved all in from the hijack for 2,125,000, and Chris Brewer stopped to think for a while, saying, “I really hope you don’t have eights.”

Brewer eventually called all in from the big blind for about 1.85 million with 7h7d, and Perry turned over 10s10h.

“I didn’t think you’d shove tens,” said Brewer, who needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jh10c3s6sQs, and Perry flopped a set of tens to win the pot and double up in chips.

Sean Perry  –  4,150,000  (42 bb)
Chris Brewer  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($128,935)

With five players remaining from a field of 145, the average chip stack is about 2.9 million (29 big blinds). The next player to bust will earn $179,075.
