Edwards Muñiz raised from the hijack to 7,000, chipleader Qasem Jamhour reraised from the cutoff to 18,000, and Muñiz moved all in for 108,000.

Jamhour called with 10s10h, and Muñiz turned over AdKd. Muñiz needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Js8d5d6dJd, and Muñiz turned an ace-high flush to win the pot and double up in chips.

Even though Jamhour lost this pot, he still has a solid chip lead over the rest of today’s field.

Edwards Muñiz  –  223,500  (75 bb)
Qasem Jamhour  –  415,000  (138 bb)

With about 90 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 139,000 (46 big blinds), and this is the final level of the night.
