Two spots away from the money, the player in the big blind got it all in for 71,000 with KsKc, and needed it to hold to stay alive against the AhKh of Ari Oxman in the hijack.

The board came Qs6h2sQhAd — Oxman turned a heart flush draw and paired his ace on the river to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

We are now waiting for action to finish at all the other tables so hand-for-hand play can begin on the Money Bubble.

With 96 players remaining from a flight of 942 entries, the average chip stack is about 196,000 (33 big blinds).

Action will continue tonight until there are 95 players left, and everyone who bags chips will be in the money and advance to Day 2, which begins tomorrow (Sunday) at 1:00 pm.
