Level 22:  10,000/20,000 with a 20,000 ante
Players Remaining: 6 of 159

Darin Utley raised from the cutoff to 40,000, Charlie Wells moved all in from the small blind for 165,000, and Utley thought for a while before he called with Js9d.

Wells turned over 9s9c, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came 8s4s4h6d4c, and the pocket nines held up for Wells to win the pot with a full house, fours full of nines, to double up in chips.

Charlie Wells  –  370,000  (19 bb)
Darin Utley  –  605,000  (30 bb)

With six players remaining from a field of 159, the average chip stack is around 530,000 (27 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $2,130 each.
