Joseph Lyles open-shoved from the button and Austin Jeffords called in the big blind at risk for 535,000.
Jeffords was ahead for the double and caught two pair on the flop. The turn and river sent him the pot and knocked Lyles low.
A few hands later, Romel Huelga limped from early position and Lyles moved all in for 105,000. Jeffords raised to 400,000 from the cutoff and Huelga folded.
Lyles was ahead for his small double but Jeffords moved ahead on the flop. He made trip aces on the turn and Lyles was eliminated after the river.
That was the last hand of the level and the nine remaining players are taking a 40-minute dinner break.
Austin Jeffords – 1,700,000 (21 bb)
Joseph Lyles – Eliminated in 10th Place ($4,420)
