Level 12: 500/1,000 with a 100 ante
Players Remaining: 27 of 105

Bruce Kramer raised to 4,500 from under the gun and Nick Pupillo moved all in from middle position for 15,300. Derek Bowers was in the small blind and moved all in as well for about 100,000.

Kramer thought for a couple minutes and folded AxQx face-up, leaving Pupillo heads-up for his tournament life against Bowers.

Pupillo was racing with his 2s2h up against Bowers’ AdKh.

The board ran out 9s3s3c7cQc and Pupillo won the pot. He doubled up just before another player at a neighboring table was eliminated and the final 27 players redrew for seats at the final three tables.

With 14 players getting paid, they still need to lose just under half the field before they are in the money. They will play through level 16 before bagging and tagging chips for the night.

Nick Pupillo – 37,000
Derek Bowers – 85,000
