With blinds and antes at 150,000/300,000/30,000, adamx moved all in from middle position for 3,468,912 with {k-Clubs}{q-Spades} and found action from Jonathan "TherookieQQ9" Plens, who held {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. The flop rolled out {7-Spades}{a-Hearts}{k-Spades}, keeping Plens in the lead after pairing his ace. The turn and river were blanks for adamx who finished ninth for $10,795.40. Next to go was ragsrellum at the 200,000/400,000/40,000 level after moving all in for 2,281,244 and finding a caller in the form of RunThisTable. It was {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts} for ragsrellum while RunThisTable showed {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}.

Soon after that, Jonathan "TherookieQQ9" Plens raised 1,000,500 under the gun and from the small blind Lamberjack12 moved all in for 3,332,296 with {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. Plens called with {4-Spades}{4-Hearts} and collected the chips when the board came {3-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Lamberjack12 earned $26,998.50 for seventh.

At the 250,000/500,000/50,000 level of play, a coin flip occurred between elemonator37, who held {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, and 1011001011, who held {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}. The board came {5-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{q-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, eliminating elemonator37 in sixth for $39,326.10. The next bust did not happen until the 400,000/800,000/80,000 level.

The board ran out {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{k-Clubs}, good enough to send 1011001011 home in fifth for $54,748.10. At 500,000/1,000,000/100,000, Mazelucky moved all in from the cutoff for 9,985,182 with {6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and was called by RunThisTable in the big blind with {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. No six would find the table and Mazelucky was out in fourth for $70,170.10. With three left, RunThisTable made it 2,225,625 to go from the button and rickyhatton shoved from the big blind for 19,705,664 with {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}. RunThisTable called with {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and won the race as the board delivered {2-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. Third place awarded rickyhatton $86,363.20.
