Color-up breaks are much longer this year at the Series, as floor staff are being extra cautious with correct procedures for color-ups.
Something apparently happened at last year's Series???
25K chips have been introduced; about 80% of the 1K chips have been taken off the table.
The call has gone out for the players to return.
Another chopped pot and Chris, who was all-in, survives.
There were some final-table access issues around the cameras, etc., but we seem to have that all worked out. We have moved to another Stud 8 round. Tom Schneider continues to build his chip lead. Chris Bell is still on the short stack.
Short Stackitis got to David and his final push ran into a set of Aces from Tom Schneider.
David finishes 6th.
Tom Schneider has been having his way at this final table. Annie Duke and Chris Ferguson have maintained solid second-place stacks and now Ed Tonnellier has moved up to a safe middle stack.
David Benyamine and Chris Bell are hoping each hand they enter goes their way or they will be done.
Chris got it all-but-in on the end (he had 2 chips left) but Tom Schneider did not make the end call and Chirs has 135K.
Some paperwork delayed the start of this round
