Wilfried Harig moved all in from middle position for 2.915 million and was called by Greg Merson in the big blind.
Harig was in bad shape with his under pair, and the flop didn't provide much help. The turn did give Harig some extra outs to a straight, meaning he would need either an eight or six on the river to keep his Main Event hopes alive. Wouldn't you know it, the slammed down on the river.
The crowd around the ESPN Main Stage gasped, while Harig allowed a smile to creep across his face as he chipped up to over six million.
