On the very next hand after the elimination of Rich Milo, two more players found the rail.

Wayne Rooney opened shoved from under the gun for 2.165M. Raoul Cheong called from his immediate left. Next to act was Ruslan Arstanaliyev who moved all-in for 6.5M total. The other four players relinquished their cards and the decision would be to Cheong for 4.405M more. Cheong made the call leaving himself ~3.5M behind should he lose the hand.
