Level 15: 3,000/6,000 with a 6,000 ante
Flight B Players Remaining: 10 of 87
With 13 players remaining and only 11 moving on, action ground to a halt, and it looked like they were in for a grind to make the money.
Then things went wonky.
On Table 21, Jason Klapman found himself in huge pot with pocket kings against ace-king and ace-queen. The kings held, the chips were counted down, and Klapman sent both opponents out to put the field in the money officially.
But there was still a hand on Table 22. Over there, Brian Arbaugh had a player at risk, but it was looking like a double up for the shorter stack. Arbaugh was behind with pocket queens against pocket kings but jumped into the lead when a queen hit the flop.
Since you need to bag to advance to the money stage, his opponent was eliminated, and Flight B had only ten players move to Day 2 in the money.
Brett Apter bagged the lead, Frank Weigel is trying for his second big final table of the series, and the full chip count list will be posted shortly.
