Chipleader Bin Weng

With the final board showing Kc9h5c10s7d and about 56,000 already in the pot, Bin Weng checked the big blind, the UTG+1 player bet 50,000, and Weng check-raised all in for about 375,000.

The UTG+1 player tanked for a while with about 155,000 remaining in his stack before he eventually folded.

Weng asked if he had a pair, and his opponent said, “I hit the river.”

Weng showed one card — the 3s — as he took the pot. Weng appears to have the chip lead as the field gets closer to the Money Bubble

Bin Weng  –  490,000  (163 bb)

With 40 players remaining, the average chip stack is around 125,500 (42 big blinds). The final 32 players will finish in the money, with a min-cash worth $1,675.
