During Level 15, Paraskevas Patsatsis flopped a Royal Flush in spades against chipleader Imaru Wiggan. Patsatsis obviously won the pot, but Wiggan still has more chips than he had at the break and still appears to be the chipleader.

Paraskevas Patsatsis  –  200,000  (40 bb)
Imaru Wiggan  –  585,000  (117 bb)

As for the rest of the field, they have just reached 84 players, which means it’s time for hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble. Everyone who bags chips for Day 2 will finish in the money.

With 84 players remaining from a flight of 658, the average chip stack is around 157,000 (31 big blinds).
