With the board showing Ks9c2cJh on the turn, Roberto Alberro checked the big blind, Ignacio Moron bet 35,000 from UTG+1, and Alberro check-raised to 100,000. Moron thought for a while before he called.

The river card was the 6h, and Alberro moved all in for 390,000. Moron went into the tank for a long time, closely studying Alberro.

Eventually, somebody called for a clock, and shortly after that, Moron called.

Alberro turned over 2s2h for a set of deuces, and Moron mucked. Alberro won the pot to double up in chips.

Roberto Alberro  –  1,020,000  (170 bb)
Ignacio Moron  –  335,000  (56 bb)

The tournament clock shows 145 players remaining from a field of 1,110, with an average chip stack around 306,000 (51 big blinds). The final 139 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $8,115 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).
