It got folded around to "katito87" on the button who chucked it in for 5,971,672 — close to 15 big blinds in the new level. "Killer_ooooo" called him off in the big blind.

"katito87": {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
"Killer_ooooo": {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

The {4-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop all but decided it, leaving "katito87" to draw to a miracle runner-runner to survive. The {10-Spades} on the turn sealed it, making the {a-Spades} river a mere formality.
