Level 16 at the World Poker Tour Alpha8 $100,000 super high roller event at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open saw a pair of Steve Silverman double ups bookend the action.

His first brush with elimination saw Silverman all in with A-3 and he was ahead of the J-9 of Matt Glantz. The board ran out 10-6-3-8-A and Silverman survived. The next time he moved all in near the end of the level Silverman held A-K to dominate the A-9 of Isaac Haxton. The board fell Q-7-4-6-3 and Silverman doubled once again.

The chip stacks really evened out during the last level, with JC Tran holding the slight advantage with 530,000.
