Following the elimination of William Rector, most pots have played out small and been chopped up. Players are currently on a short break but in the last hand before the recess, Joseph Stiers hit 1,000,000 chips after a scoop versus Chris Welch.
Stiers opened to 50,000 in early position and Welch called in the hijack. Stiers bet 130,000 on the J♥7♥3♦ flop and Welch took a moment before calling. Both players were deliberate with their decisions to check on the J♦ turn and K♦ river and went to showdown.
Stiers fanned A♥A♣J♠7♠2♦ for a full house and Welch showed A♦7♣6♦6♣2♠ for the nut flush. Stiers raked in the pot and is now playing 1,125,000 with Welch not far behind with 950,000.
