Players are now in the money

With 46 players left in the tournament, play had gone hand for hand.  There had been a few allins, but no eliminations yet.  On table 23, a player had raised and Matt Berkey had called before Layne Flack moved all in.  The original raiser folded, and Matt called, tabling AK.  It was a race as Layne had pocket jacks.  The board ran out clean until a king hit the river, making Layne Flack the official bubble boy.  The day wasn't all bad for Layne, however, as he banked $15,000 for eliminating three bounties.  All remaining players are now guaranteed $15,000, with 1st place paying $1,013,500 + $25,500 WPT seat.
