Gary Albertson opened to 85,000 in early position and Maria McAlpin moved all in for 1,310,000 in the hijack. Frederico Bastos thought for a while and called in the big blind. Albertson rejammed for 2,460,000 and Bastos called.

McAlpin: JJ
Albertson: KK

The A94 flop vaulted Bastos in front and made a double knockout likely, but the K hit the turn to put Albertson back ahead.

The Q river confirmed the result and Albertson claimed the huge pot while McAlpin was eliminated in ninth place for $4,448 + $50,000 in bounties after she pulled the top bounty earlier in the day.

Gary Albertson – 6,290,000
Frederico Bastos – 1,250,000
Maria McAlpin – 0
