Aristoteles Neto raised from middle position to 10,000, the player in the small blind moved all in for 80,000, and Neto called with AhQh.

The small blind turned over AcKd, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 10s7d2s8dQd, and Neto spiked a queen on the river to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Aristoteles Neto  –  190,000  (48 bb)

With about 320 players remaining from a field of 1,541, the average chip stack is around 241,000 (60 big blinds). The final 193 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $5,600 each.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after Level 16 (around 6:30-6:45 pm, depending on the Money Bubble), and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 11:30 pm.
