The remaining players are on a one-hour dinner break.

Bright and McCrink Sent on an Permanent Dinner Break

Josh_Cahlik • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

We saw a huge hand at table #282 right before the dinner break that resulted in Robert Bright and Jim McCrink hitting the rail.

We caught up with the action when Jim McCrink moved his entire stack all in. Back on the button, Greg Raymer made the call only to find Alessio Isaia move his whole stack in from the small blind. Robert Bright had least amount of chips of the players in the hand but also shoved his entire stack in.

"I'll fold my marginal hand" Raymer said, tossing his hand into the muck.

Each player drew one and Isaia tabled his {8-}{4-}{3-}{2-} and then flipped up a {9-} for a nine-eight low. Bright flipped up {4-}{4-}{7-}{6-}{2-}, making a pair of fours on the draw, and McCrink tabled {2-}{3-}{4-}{5-}{6-}, making a straight on the draw.

Isaia sent both players home and has now climbed up to around 95,000 in chips.

Schulman Times Two

[user66118] • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

Nick Schulman has just doubled through Chino Rheem in a big pot. We missed the early action, walking up only as Schulman was all in for 45,800. Rheem spent a few minutes considering, but he eventually plunked the calling stack into the pot.

Schulman showed up {8-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, and his eighty-six doubles him up to about 150,000. Rheem was gunning for the chip lead, but that loss knocks him back to about 125,000.

Wattel is a Winner

Josh_Cahlik • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

Michael Wattel moved all in for 27,200 from the button and was called by Calvin Anderson from the big blind. Anderson stood pat while Wattel picked up one.

Anderson tabled {J-}{9-}{7-}{6-}{3-} for jack-nine low against Wattel's {8-}{7-}{5-}{2-}. Wattel squeezed out a {J-} and his jack-eight low scooped the pot.

Wattel is currently sitting around 59,000 while Anderson's been knocked down to about 60,000

Bright Gets Light

[user66118] • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

We just watched Brandon Cantu get some value after the draw. Robert Bright checked to him, and Cantu put out a bet of 15,100. Bright spent a good while considering before resigning himself to the call.

"Nine," Cantu announced, and it was good. He turned up {9-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}, and the pot moves him up among the chip leaders with about 190,000 now. Bright is now getting short with about a starting stack left.

Hellmuth Moving Up

[user66118] • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

Under the gun, David Williams opened to 5,000, and Jon Turner (hijack), Phil Hellmuth (button), and John Monnette all called to go four ways to the draw.

Everyone drew one card, and action checked to Jon Turner. He made a bet of 16,000, and Hellmuth made the call as the other two players ducked out.

Hellmuth turned over {8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}, and his eighty-seven was the best hand. He drags the pot, moving up to 145,000 and knocking Turner down to about 52,000.

Ulliott Takes a Hit

Josh_Cahlik • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

David "Devilfish" Ulliott opened the betting by making it 4,500 to go and was called by Parris Holmes. Both drew one card and Devilfish checked to Holmes who bet 8,000. Devilfish made the call but mucked after Holmes flipped up {9-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}.

This hand boosts Holmes' stack up to 132,000 while dropping Devilfish to 12,400.

Seiver Doesn't Give a S***

[user66118] • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

"I'm gonna go ahead and go all in," Scott Seiver said. He was under the gun, and he slid his last 36,600 chips into the middle. "Not partially," he added. "All the way in. Completely in. Not partially."

Seiver is having a good time over there at the table that includes Josh Brikis, George Lind, and Chau Giang. Action folded around to Peter Gould on the button, and he took a long, hard look across the felt. He was considering, and Seiver was still chatting.

"These tournaments are super fun when you're short-stacked," he said. "Normally, I would be sweating this so hard. But I don't even give a shit."

There was plenty more words and laughter passed around between him, Brikis, and Lind, and Gould and the blinds eventually folded to let Seiver off the hook.

Mercier Takes Some Off Hellmuth

Josh_Cahlik • Ниво 11: 800-1,600, 400 ante

Jason Mercier made it 4,000 to go from the cutoff and Phil Hellmuth made the call from the big blind. Hellmuth stood pat while Mercier took one. When Hellmuth checked, Mercier bet 11,300.

"This feels like a bluff" exclaimed Hellmuth before finally making the call. Much to Hellmuth's chagrin, Mercier tabled {9-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-}, causing Hellmuth's cards to get cast into the muck.

This brings Mercier up to 97,000 while Hellmuth drops to about 100,000.
