After Ariel Williams knocked out a player to get the field down to 61, all of the other tables had to finish their hands in progress before hand-for-hand play could begin.

In one of those hands, a player moved all in from the cutoff for 27,000, and Anibal Pabon called from the small blind with AcKs.

The cutoff turned over Qs9d, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AhAd10cJh10h, and the cutoff turned an open-ended straight draw, but Pabon rivered a full house, aces full of tens, to win the pot and eliminate his opponent on the Money Bubble.

Anibal Pabon  –  361,000  (45 bb)

With this elimination, the field is in the money without the need for hand-for-hand play. The final 60 players are now bagging up their chips for Day 2, which begins Sunday at 1:00 pm. Everyone who makes Day 2 will be in the money.
