Level 16:  3,000/5,000 with a 5,000 ante
Flight B Players Remaining:  52 of 514

A player in middle position raised all in for 33,000, George Hortelano called from the button, and Manny Tarich called from the big blind.

The flop came down KhQh9h, Tarich shoved for 134,000, and Hortelano thought for about 40 seconds before open folding KdQd for top two pair.

Tarich showed Jd10c for a king-high straight, leading his opponent’s Ad8h, needing a heart to survive.

The 4c turn and 3s river completed the board, safe for Tarich to score the elimination and send the remaining 52 players into the money through to Day 2.

Manny Tarich  –  241,000  (48 bb)
George Hortelano  –  150,000  (30 bb)
