Total Entrants: 319

Average Stack: 1,065,000

Kelly Van De Mheen started the final table as chip leader and after losing it for a short while to Matt Morfitt is back in front thanks to two eliminations. 

Van De Mheen opened to 80,000 and Scott Veitzer (pictured above) shoved for 450,000 out of the small blind. Van De Mheen called with AK♠ and was racing against the 10♣10♠ of Veitzer. The AJ♠3 flop put Van De Mheen far out in front and Veitzer never caught up.

Two hands later, Van De Mheen opened to 80,000 and Jim Devaney (pictured below) pushed for 465,000. Van De Mheen called with A♣A and Devaney's 88 was in dire straits.

Van De Mheen flopped a set and Devaney was dead on the turn. "Batman" takes home $4,884 and Van De Mheen is playing 40 percent of the chips in play with 2,465,000.
