Shortly before the money bubble, a short-stacked player moved all in from UTG+1 for 24,000. Andrew Pacifico called from the hijack, and chipleader Matvey Tevlin raised from the small blind to 74,000.

Pacifico moved all in over the top for about 350,000, and Tevlin quickly called.

These were their cards in descending order of chip counts:

Matvey Tevlin:  AhAd
Andrew Pacifico:  KsKd
UTG+1 Player:  QhJc

The board came 10h9d2s5h6h, and the short stack flopped an open-ended straight draw, but improved no further.

The aces held up for Tevlin to win the entire pot, knocking out both of his opponents and catapulting to a massive chip lead with 828,000.

Matvey Tevlin  –  828,000  (207 bb)
Andrew Pacifico  –  Eliminated

With about 80 players remaining from a flight of 606, the average chip stack is around 152,000 (38 big blinds). Action will continue until there are 76 players remaining, and everyone who bags up chips for Day 2 will finish in the money.
