Ryan Hughes has been having one huge downswing of a level. After dinner break Hughes was in contention for the chip lead, but he's really fallen hard here towards the end of the night and now sits towards the middle of the pack.
In the most recent hand, Hughes opened to 9,000 from middle position. Action folded around to Nick Hicks who was on the button. He reraised to 24,000. Everyone folded back around to Hughes and he decided to four-bet to 59,000. Hicks thought about it for a couple of minutes before he announced that he was all in. Hughes snap called.
The flop came down offering no help to Hughes. The on the turn was also useless to him. The hit the river and that was a safe card for Hicks who was able to double up for a total of 155,000 while Hughes dropped down to just about 400,000 chips.
