The final three players return from break to begin Level 22, with increased blinds of 10,000-20,000 with a 20,000 ante. Here are their official chip counts from the break:

Seat 1.  Bruce Gans  –  575,000  (29 bb)

Seat 3.  Phil Rigby  –  555,000  (28 bb)

About halfway thru the level, Phil Rigby had taken the lead with more than a million in chips, and he raised from the button to 20,000. Yvonne McQuillan moved all in from the big blind for 195,000, and Rigby thought for a while before he called with 3h3c.

McQuillan turned over Ks10h, and she needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came 10s8d5h7d4d, and McQuillan paired her ten on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Yvonne McQuillan  –  420,000  (21 bb)
Phil Rigby  –  830,000  (42 bb)

2.  Bruce Gans  –  575,000  (23 bb)
3.  Yvonne McQuillan  –  440,000  (18 bb)
