Blinds: 400,000/800,000

On the last hand before the break, David “The Dragon” Pham raised it up, and David Cabrera Polop rerasied to 6 million. It folded back to Pham, who moved all in, and Cabrera Polop quickly called.

Pham: [8c][8h] Cabrera Polop: [Kh][Kc]

If they didn’t get it in preflop, they certainly would have after the flop came [Kd][8d][3d], giving both players a set. Pham had just one out now, or he could chop if two more diamonds came, but neither of those occurred, sending the most experienced player at this final table to the rail in sixth.

Here is how the final five currently stack up, with the blinds about to go to 500,000/1,000,000

David Cabrera Polop – 66,000,000
Albyn Bello – 28,000,000
Lucian Silveira – 27,500,000
Tianyu Zheng – 22,500,000
Alan Myerson – 10,300,000
