With the board showing J1079 on the turn, two of the big stacks get it all in -- Moon Kim and Hafiz Khan. Kim has 83 for a jack-high straight with a flush draw, but Khan turns over KQ for the king-high straight.
Kim needs a club on the river to eliminate Khan, but the last card is the A, and Khan wins the pot with an ace-high straight to double up in chips.
Hafiz Khan - ~3.2 million (133 BBs)
Moon Kim - 395,000 (16 BBs)
