Players are on their first 10-minute break of the day to color up the T500 chips.
Just before break, Rich Alsup was on the button and raised to 10,500 after action was folded to him. Jason Sell three-bet all in from the big blind for 54,000. Alsup thought for a while and then called.
Alsup was all over the flop , but the turn put Sell back in front and in position to double. The river turned the tides once more, however, and Sell found himself with the second-best hand and no more chips, resulting in his elimination from the tournament.
Brad Berman was also eliminated right before break, ending his campaign at a third Main Event title and missing an opportunity at eclipsing $1,000,000 in lifetime earnings.
Aside from that, play has been trending towards a slower pace as the tournament is just four eliminations away from the money. Here are a few short stacks with the bubble approaching.
