Level 16:  4,000/8,000 with a 8,000 ante

Javier Zarco

After unknown action, Javier Zarco raised from middle position to 91,000, Brock Wilson reraised from the cutoff to 200,000, and Zarco moved all in.

Wilson thought for a while before he called all in for about 250,000 with AcKh, but he needed to improve to stay alive against Zarco’s JhJd.

The board came 9c3c3h5d5s, and the pocket jacks held up for Zarco to win the pot and eliminate Wilson in 254th place.

Javier Zarco  –  965,000  (121 bb)

With 253 players remaining from a field of 2,010, the average chip stack is about 397,000 (50 big blinds). The final 252 players will finish in the money, earning at least $5,650 each.

The 30-second Action Clock by Protection Poker is in use, and players have 30 seconds to make each decision. Each player has been given a limited number of non-transferable Time Chips that can be used to extend a decision by 30 seconds.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 12:30 am (depending on how long the Money Bubble lasts).
