After a flop of 10s6s5c, the big blind checked, Nadya Magnus bet 30,000 from middle position, and the big blind tanked for a while before moving all in.

Magnus snap-called all in for 137,000 with QsQc, and her opponent turned over 10h3h for a pair of tens. Magnus needed her pair to hold to stay alive.

The turn card was the Ks, the river card was the 7h, and the pocket queens held up for Magnus to win the pot and double up in chips.

Nadya Magnus  –  330,000  (41 bb)

With about 300 players remaining from a field of 2,482, the average chip stack is about 331,000 (41 bb). The field is in the money, with the remaining players guaranteed at least $6,195 each.

There will be a 90-minute dinner break after this level (around 6:55 pm), and action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 20, around 12:30 am.
