Loni Hui
Loni Hui won Event 10 a few days ago to earn $85,355.

Loni Hui was all in from the big blind for 154,000 with AcKh, and she needed her hand to hold to stay alive against the UTG player’s AdQs.

The board came Ks4h3h2cJd — both players turned an identical gutshot straight draw, but the river card was a blank. Hui won the pot with a pair of kings to double up in chips.

Loni Hui  –  316,000  (63 bb)

With 234 players remaining from a field of 1,566, the average chip stack is about 268,000 (54 big blinds). The final 196 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $5,265 each.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after Level 16 (around 6:30 pm), and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 20 (around 12:15 am).
