A player raised under the gun to 3,800, Joshua Poe reraised from middle position to 12,000, and Steve Karp cold four-bet from the cutoff to about 25,000.

The original raiser folded, and Poe five-bet all in for about 48,000.

Karp snap-called with AsAc, and Poe was visibly tilted as he turned over KhKc. Poe needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qh3c2d10d2h, and the pocket aces held up for Karp to win the pot and eliminate Poe from the tournament.

Steve Karp  –  120,000  (75 bb)
Joshua Poe  –  Eliminated

With about 195 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 95,400 (60 big blinds), and action will continue tonight until the end of Level 15, around 10:45 pm.
