Two players got it all in for about 83,000 each, with John Palmer in middle position with JdJc, and his opponent in the cutoff with AxKx.

The board came QhJs9d8d4h — the cutoff flopped a gutshot straight draw, but never caught up to Palmer’s flopped set of jacks. Palmer won the pot, and their chip stacks were counted down.

Palmer had 83,500, and his opponent had 82,500. Coming up short, the other player was eliminated from Flight C as Palmer effectively doubled up.

With about 125 players remaining from a Flight C field of 628, the average chip stack is about 100,500 (40 big blinds). Action will continue today until there are 79 players remaining, and the survivors will finish in the money and advance to Day 2, which begins Sunday at 1:00 pm.

Note:  Players must bag chips at the end of their starting flight to finish in the money.
