Demirdjian Tops It All

zedmaster84 • Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

It remains unclear just how good Mark Demirdjian has run as of lately, as the Canadian is the run-away chip leader in the final level of the night. A few other big stacks have emerged that may take a shot at the overnight spotlight including Dan Abouaf, but Demirdjian remains at the top for now with a black "tight is right" shirt.

Abouaf had been responsible for the elimination of Jean-Noel Thorel when calling down the three barrels of his fellow countryman with {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for flopped top pair. Thorel only had {A-}{5-} for bottom pair and headed straight to the registration desk in order to re-enter.
