John Gorsuch

The player in the cutoff raised to 8,000, John Gorsuch moved all in from the big blind for 33,000, and his opponent called with AcJs.

Gorsuch turned over 6d6c, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 7s6h2c9sQh, and Gorsuch flopped a set of sixes to win the pot and double up in chips.

With about 295 players remaining from a field of 1,541, the average chip stack is around 261,000 (52 big blinds). The final 193 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $5,600 each.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after Level 16 (around 6:30-6:45 pm, depending on the Money Bubble), and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 11:30 pm.
