In one of the final hands of the night, Jake Daniels got it all in from the button for 85,500 with Qh9c, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the AcJc of Patrick White in the small blind.

The board came Qc7h6c10s3s, and Daniels paired his queen on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Jake Daniels  –  175,000  (88 bb)
Patrick White  –  445,000  (223 bb)

With about 260 players remaining from an unofficial Day 1A field of 893, the average chip stack is about 137,000 (69 big blinds). The total prizepool is already worth more than $2.85 million (smashing the $2 million guarantee), plus whatever tomorrow’s field brings on Day 1B.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of this level, around 11:15 pm.
