Three spots from the money, there was some heavy stalling throughout Level 16, so as Level 17 begins, they will be playing hand-for-hand until the Money Bubble bursts.

You know what else speeds up play? Cooler situations.

In Hand #1, Nick Schulman got it all in from UTG+1 for roughly 600,000 with QdQc, but he needed to improve to stay alive against the AdAc of Jerry Wong in the hijack.

The board came 6h5s4h8c5c, and the aces held up for Wong to win the pot and eliminate Schulman in 22nd place.

Jerry Wong  –  1,550,000  (62 bb)
Nick Schulman  –  Eliminated

With 21 players remaining from a field of 132, the average chip stack is around 600,000 (24 big blinds). The final 19 players will finish in the money, earning at least $57,055.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until there are 16 players remaining, and the survivors will return tomorrow at 2:00 pm EDT to play down to a winner.
