Thomas Tackett (pictured) was on edge but doubled out of trouble through Jamie Kerstetter.
Tackett moved all-in for 106,000 in early position with A♥K♥ and Kerstetter called out of the big blind with A♣Q♣. The A♦K♣7♣ flop put the ultimate sweat in play with Kerstetter live to hit clubs. She improved her outs on the 10♥ turn but missed everything on the 5♦ river.
Kerstetter joins Tackett and Mickey Stuefen as the players below 300,000 midway through Level 20. Stuefen is the shortest of the group with 190,000. Kerstetter has 265,000.
