Eric Lea got it all in from the big blind for about 350,000 with Ad3c, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the Kd4d of Jordan Sparagana on the button.

The board came Qs9c4c10c4s, and Sparagana paired his four on the flop, turned a gutshot straight draw, and rivered trips to win the pot and eliminate Lea in 55th place.

Jordan Sparagana  –  1,550,000  (31 bb)

There will be a one-hour dinner break around 6:00 pm, and the field is scheduled to play as long as it takes to get down to the final two tables tonight (16 players).
