MartianNews • Level 24: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante

The day has come to an end in the partypoker MILLIONS North America $1,100 Open. The tournament is now down to 68 runners and will be playing until there is one person holding the title. The chip leader going into the final day of the tournament is Anthony Ruberto (40,175,000) and he will be looking to add to the already healthy stack in front of him.

Ruberto will be going into tomorrow with the hopes of winning the title and adding another respectable cash to his already impressive resume.The Miami, Florida native has amassed a total of $2.2 million live tournament earnings and has a long history of cashes that show this is not a fluke, with his biggest cash coming in the WPT Jacksonville $3,500 No Limit Hold'em - Main Event.

Steven Tripp (38,900,000), Jean-Francois M (37,425,000), and Andres Ojeda (37,400,000) are not far behind the chip leader and will be looking to move up the ranks. There are some well-known pros still on the leaderboard looking to take down this event and the star-studded list includes 2014 WSOP Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson (36,475,000), and WSOP bracelet winners Chris Moorman (36,000,000) and Mohsin Charania (26,400,000).

The remaining 68 players will resume play Tuesday at 12:00 PM EST for the final day of the tournament. The action will start on level 25 with the blinds at 300,000/600,000 and a button ante of 600,000. The blinds will stay at 40-minute levels until we have a winner's photo.

There is still plenty of money up for grabs tomorrow with everyone guaranteed at least $4,000. The serious pay jumps start to take place on the final table with the winner pocketing $210,000 and the title.

Shonk Sends an Opponent to the Rail

MartianNews • Level 24: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante

The board showed {8-Spades}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades} when the big blind went all-in for 3,250,000 and Peter Shonk called. The players flipped their cards and the big blind tabled {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades} which was behind Shonk's {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}.

The {10-Diamonds} on the turn and the {5-Diamonds} on the river were of no help to the big blind. Shonk's pair of sevens took down the pot and eliminated his opponent.
