Players: 15/384
Blinds: 10,000/20,000 ante 3,000

A big pot was brewing over at Joe Wegner's table and Steve Nevius was standing up with a look of frustration on his face.

The board read [ad6s2ctd] with about 220,000 in the pot already. Nevius was all in for 237,000 from the small blind holding [th2s] and Wegner called from under the gun with [6c6d]. Nevius had two pair tens and deuces while Wegner had a set of sixes. 

The river was the [ts] and the entire table erupted as Nevius made a bigger full house on the river to save his tournament life. The Thursday Thrilla champ is still alive and well in this tournament, looking to make another big final table. 

Steve Nevius - 670,000
Joe Wegner - 570,000
