The increased blinds have put additional pressure on the short stacks at the Event 73 final table but so far this level, they have all found a way to survive their all-ins.

Steve Nooralian was the first to get some back when he doubled up to 1,275,000 when his A♣Q held against the A♠J♠ of Sergei Nikiforov.

David Welch then won a flip for his last 805,000 when he turned a set with 6♣6 against the AK of Jeffrey Schwartz.

Finally, Mohamed Mamouni doubled up once again when his 77♠ beat the 55 of Ara Abkarian, leaving Abkarian with less than six big blinds. Mamouni is back to 1,100,000 and the all-ins are sure to continue with the average stack at 25 big blinds.
