Dana Caruso

Taylor Wilson raised under the gun to 100,000, Dana Caruso called from the hijack, and Anthony Dalpra moved all in from the button for 1,180,000.

Wilson thought for a while before he folded (later claiming he had pocket tens), and Caruso thought for a bit before he called all in for 760,000 with KhJh.

Dalpra turned over JsJd, and Caruso needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 4h2s2d8hKc, and Caruso spiked a king on the river to win the pot and double up in chips.

Dana Caruso  –  1,745,000  (35 bb)
Anthony Dalpra  –  420,000  (8 bb)

With 48 players remaining from a field of 1,692, the average chip stack is around 1,765,000 (35 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $17,605 each.

There will be a one-hour dinner break around 6:00 pm, and the field is scheduled to play as long as it takes to get down to the final two tables tonight (16 players).
