Steve Wilkie was all in under the gun for 54,000 with KsKc, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against his opponent’s AhKd in middle position.

The board came Qc5c4d10s4s — his opponent turned a gutshot straight draw, but the river card was a blank. Wilkie won the pot with his pocket kings to double up in chips.

Steve Wilkie  –  125,000  (83 bb)

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 10, around 11:20 pm.
