Hand #80: Will Givens raised to 2,500,000 in the small blind and Jeff Hakim gave it some consideration before moving all in for just over 17,000,000, Givens almost beat him into the pot.

Jeff Hakim: {a-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Will Givens: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

"I need an ace," Hakim said to his rail. A five would have also done the job after the {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop, but the {j-Spades} turn and {q-Spades} river ended Hakim's run in 4th place for $135,783.

Hand #61: Gleb Kovtunov moved all in for 7,500,000 from the cutoff and Jeff Hakim re-shoved all in over top from the small blind.

Gleb Kovtunov: {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} to keep Hakim in the lead. The turn was the {9-Spades} to give Kovtunov a gut-shot straight draw but the river was the {7-Spades} and he was sent to the rail in 5th place.

All remaining players are guaranteed a payout of $135,783.
