The UTG+1 player got it all in preflop with 10h10d, but he needed to improve to stay alive against the QsQd of Shahin Edalatdju in the big blind.

The board came Jh9s9cKs2d, and Edalatdju won the pot with his pocket queens to eliminate his opponent from Day 1A.

Shahin Edalatdju  –  125,000  (83 bb)

With about 441 players remaining from an unofficial Day 1A field of 893, the average chip stack is about 81,000 (54 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 Level 10, around 11:15 pm.
