Level 18 (5,000/10,000/1,000)
Total Entrants: 392
Players Remaining: 21
Average Stack: 373,000
The remaining 21 players are on break in the RG Main Event. They return three eliminations away from hitting the final two tables. Wes Gauthier (pictured) could be on either side of the tournament fence but is alive with 160,000.
Gauthier lost a preflop all-in with aces against the kings of Brian Kelley when a king flopped to give Kelley the pot. He is playing 345,000.
Down to less than eight big blinds, Gauthier flopped trips with A♥3♠ against John Butler's A♠J♥ and is back in the thick of things. Butler is doing quite well with 775,000.
We'll see if Gauthier can chip back up. The final 21 will play down to a final table and then break for dinner.
