James Halverson got it all in from the big blind for 150,000 with Ax8x, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the Js10s of Will Failla in the small blind.

The flop brought a king and a queen to give Failla an open-ended straight draw, and a nine on the river gave Failla the victory with a king-high straight. Halverson was eliminated in 27th place.

Will Failla  –  410,000  (27 bb)
James Halverson  –  Eliminated

With 26 players remaining from a field of 145, the average chip stack is about 560,000 (37 big blinds). Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of Level 15, around 12:30 am.
