Event 30 - $2,500 No Limit Holdem 6 Handed

15-Minute Break

Players are now on a 15-minute break. There are currently 55 players remaining on 10 tables.

John Juanda Eliminated

Alan Sass bet 8,500 on a board showing {9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Juanda went into the tank for a very long time before announcing: "All in."

Sass called immediately and turned over {3-Clubs}{3-Spades} for bottom set. Juanda could only shake his head and smile as he revealed {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}.

The turn and river came {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Sass won the hand with a full boat. Always gracious in defeat, Juanda shook Sass' hand and wished everyone luck before exiting the tournament area.

Tehan Regains the Chip Lead

It was Tehan vs. Chan, II and this time, Joe Tehan came out on top. Joe hit a third queen on the flop to best Terrence Chan's pocket aces and hoist him back into the chip lead.

Tehan now has a commanding lead over the field with 215,000 chips, while Chan has dropped to 60,000.

Unfortunately, we won't have a Tehan vs. Chan III, unless the two are reunited later in the tournament; their table was broken shortly after this hand took place.
