“Two payouts on Table 10,” announced the dealer, and the chips were being pushed to Greg Koutelidakis.
He was in the small blind with pocket kings on a board of 9c 5c 3s Qs 7h. He eliminated the player in the big blind and another player in early position in that hand. Koutelidakis has grown his stack to 775,000, putting him second in chips behind Mike Puccio (840,000). Jake Hommen, who is seated at the same table as Koutelidakis, is third in chips with 680,000.
Halfway through Level 19, 57 players remain.
