Level 19 (6000/12000/12000)
Total Entries: 386
Players Remaining: 16
Chip Average: 482,500

Luke Prestholt (pictured) raises to 45,000 and Mark Barrientos moves all-in from the blinds. Prestholt goes into the tank, but ultimately calls off his last 250,000 to call the bet.

Presholt - J♠J♣
Barrientos - A♦J♦

Prestholt is well ahead and holds through a flop of K♦4♠3♦, though Barrientos picks up a flush draw to go with his overcard. The turn flips the script when the A♠ hits the felt. Now it's Prestholt who is deep in a hole. He must catch the last jack in the deck to stay alive. The river brings the A♣ to improve Barrientos to trips, and Prestholt hits the rail.

Prestholt goes out in 17th place for a payday of $1,872.

Mark Barrientos - 930,000
Luke Prestholt - Eliminated
