With the board showing 7s4s2dJh on the turn, the UTG+1 player got it all in with KdKc, but he needed to catch a king on the river to stay alive against the 2s2h (set of deuces) of Barbaro Diaz in the cutoff.

The river card paired the board with the 4c, and Diaz won the pot with a full house, deuces full of fours, to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

The tournament clock shows about 243 players remaining from an unofficial Flight 1B field of 602 entries, with an average chip stack around 99,000 (66 big blinds). The payouts will be posted later tonight, but the total prizepool should be worth more than $5.3 million.

Action will continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:15 pm.
