Brandon Aaron Kitchen opened to 1,300,000 from late position and Matthew Wilkins moved all-in for 8,650,000 from the cutoff. Kitchen called

Wilkins was the player at risk with {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, up against Kitchen's {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}.

"Queens against tens!" exclaimed kitchen to his rail. He was on his feet as the flop came {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts}, and Wilkins took the lead with a set of tens. He shook his head in disappointment but then turn was the {q-Hearts} to give the lead back to Kitchen with a bigger set. The river was the {3-Clubs} and Wilkins was eliminated, taking home $8,500 for his run in 15th place.

Play resumes in about 15 minutes.

[user270022] • Level 31: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

The online qualifier who was not able to make it to play the live Day 3 has just finally blinded out. With the remainder of his stack all-in paying the small blind, Riseley's cards were mucked and Raphael Duval picked up another pot after opening preflop and getting the player in the big blind to fold with a bet on the river

With the recent elimination of Romio Mikhael in 17th place ($7,000), the final two tables have come together

The start-of-day chip leader Raphael Duval has almost doubled the stack he began the day with, and sits on 42,800,000 chips, more than double the next-biggest stack. That stack belongs to online qualifier Jeff Cuccurullo with 21,000. Debra Ann Holman sits in third place for now, with the only other online qualifier Nicholas Riseley blinding out and sitting in last place with 440,000. Riseley was unable to make it to the event and has laddered up significantly after starting the day with just over 5 million in chips.

Kitchen Cooks Up a Double

[user323482] • Level 31: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

Brandon Aaron Kitchen moved all-in from the cutoff for his last 4,110,000 and was called by Helen Marie Dufour in the small blind.

Kitchen was at risk with {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}, flipping against Dufour's {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}.

The flop came {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Dufour paired her king but Kitchen improved to a set. The turn was the {10-Clubs} and Dufour was drawing dead to the {k-Diamonds} on the river. Kitchen locked up the double and Dufour was left with just over 10 big blinds.

Sean Burstein raised to 1,000,000 from the hijack and Mark Young called for his last 900,000 from the small blind. He just lost a big hand to Burstein the hand before and they decided to tangle again.

The flop came {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Burstein extended his lead to a set, but Young still had outs with a straight draw. The turn was the {8-Clubs} and the river was the {6-Hearts}, sending Young to the rail.
