James Peterson and Mirza Nagji recently got all of Peterson’s 1,250,000 chips in the middle preflop in what was the largest pot of the tournament thus far. Nagji — who owned about 1,550,000 chips — was poised to take a huge one. Unfortunately, the pair turned over the same pair — aces.

James Peterson (Seat 7) and Mirza Nagji (Seat 8) stand for the runout. Michael McCarthy (Seat 5) leaves in disgust.

A no-flush runout left for a friendly chop. On the sidelines disappointed, though, was Michael McCarthy. The preflop back and forth scared off his queens. You guessed it, a queen fell on the runout.

Mirza Nagji – 1,575,000
James Peterson – 1,295,000
