Antonio Esfandiari (with about 170,000) and Jonathan Little (with about 400,000) are both all in preflop against Michael Mizrachi. Here are their hands:
Michael Mizrachi: Q-J
Jonathan Little: A-K
Antonio Esfandiari: K-J
Mizrachi started with the worst hand, but caught a queen on the turn to win the entire pot and eliminate both players on the verge of the money bubble.
Michael Mizrachi - 1,180,000
Jonathan Little - Out in 20th Place
Antonio Esfandiari - Out in 21st Place
With 19 players remaining, the field begins hand-for-hand play on the money bubble. The top 18 players are guaranteed at least $40,266.
There are 20 minutes left in the last level of the day, and the tournament staff says that will be the end of the night, even if the field is still on the money bubble.
