Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Level 25 Expires: The Last Woman Standing Falls, Accidental Exposure & More

• Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Maria Ho

The returning 79 players began Day 6 with one hour remaining in Level 25, and now that those 60 minutes have passed, it's time for the first 20-minute break of the day. It may have only been an hour, but there was plenty of action in that time.

Straight out of the gate Jason Leifer was ousted in 79th place after being on the wrong end of a set-over-set situation, and then Zachary Walker followed him out the door in 78th after failing to win a race with pocket sevens.

Maria Ho, the last woman standing in the field, was the next to go after she got her short stack all in preflop holding the {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} only to run into the {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} of Zachary Hirst. Ho, who was also the last woman standing in the 2007 WSOP Main Event, took home $85,812 for her 77th-place finish.

Not long after, a hand took place between Daniel Wilson and William Cole that saw the former win and show one card. Then, the other card was accidentally exposed to Cole by the dealer.

Toss in the eliminations of Vadzim Markushevski and Henrik Hecklen in 76th and 75th place respectively, and that means five players fell in the first hour of play. Action will resume shortly, but while you wait, check out this interview with online poker legend Scott Palmer, who is making a deep run in the Main Event:
