Aaron Shepard has chipped up to 300K, and appears to still be the chipleader as Level 11 begins.

Aaron Shepard  –  300,000  (250 bb)

At Table 26, the player on the button was all in for about 40,000 with QsQh, but he needed to improve to stay alive against the AdAc of Chris Dasilva in the cutoff.

The board came 8h7s5dKh6h, and the pocket aces hold up for Dasilva to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Chris Dasilva  –  137,000  (114 bb)

With about 324 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 64,000 (53 big blinds).
