Level 16:  4,000/8,000 with a 8,000 ante
Players Remaining:  197 of 1,566

In Hand #1 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble (two spots from the money), Chad Eveslage got it all in preflop with JhJd, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive against his opponent’s 10h8h.

The board came Kc3s2d3d10s, and the pocket jacks held up for Eveslage to win the pot and double up in chips.

Meanwhile, there was another all-in situation at a different table, and that one resulted in an elimination. That leaves 197 players in the field, one spot away from the money. Hand-for-hand play continues.

With 197 players remaining from a field of 1,566, the average chip stack is about 318,000 (40 big blinds). The final 196 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $5,265 each.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break at the end of this level (around 6:55 pm), and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 20 (around 12:40 am).
