Vanessa Kade moved all in from the button for 17,500, and the player in the small blind called all in for about 15,000 with KcQh.

Kade turned over AhKh, and the small blind needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 10s5d4d9s6c, and Kade won the pot with her ace to eliminate the small blind from Day 1A.

Vanessa Kade  –  36,000  (24 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.
