Jeffrey Kenny got it all in from the big blind for about 40,000 against chipleader Jay Kerbel.

Jay Kerbel:  AdAcKsJd
Jeffrey Kenny:  Js10h8s7h

The board came 10s7c5c5d2s, and Kenny flopped two pair with a gutshot straight draw, but his two pair got counterfeited on the turn. Kenny missed his outs on the river, and Kerbel won the pot with a higher two pair, aces and fives, to eliminate Kenny in ninth place. (Neither player had a qualifying low hand.)

Jay Kerbel  –  685,000  (21 bb)
Jeffrey Kenny  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($1,225)

With eight players remaining, the average chip stack is around 194,000 (6 Big Bets), and they are all guaranteed at least $1,385 each.
