And We're Done

That's it, we're in the money. The table in question was buried in the middle of the room where bloggers fear to tread during hand for hand, and the poor unfortunate declined to give his name, much though he was begged by your keen Pokernews team, so I'm afraid that's your lot for the night.

It's been a super-fast day -- nobody here realistically expected to get into the money today, but roughly 90% of the field later and that's exactly what's happened. Full chip counts of everyone who survived into the money will appear as if by magic during the night, and we'll be back tomorrow at 2pm to play right down to a final table. Until then, we reckon it's time for everyone to get some well-earned rest...

Not Quite

Some shouting over on table 10 -- but Steve Frezer announces, "Nah, he survives, guys -- deal another hand." A chorus of booing echoes around the Amazon Room.

O'Leary So Near-y

One of the unfortunates who will not be making the money is pink-haired Brit Kevin O'Leary. He raised all in for a mere 500 over the existing bet on a {7-Spades} {10-Hearts} {9-Hearts} flop and got two callers; he was already putting his coat on.

Both players checked the {A-Clubs} turn and come the {9-Clubs} river Stuart Marshak bet out 10,400. His opponent called, but mucked when Marshak turned over {6-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} for the flopped straight. O'Leary mucked too and headed for the door, leaving behind his giraffe shaped cocktail-stirrer-cum-card-protector. Marshak is up to a shade over 100,000.

Here We Go...

277 players remain. Seven of them will be going home tonight with nothing.

10 Minute Break

We'll be back for an unscheduled level 11, and will be playing until the bubble bursts.

Yeh's Still Got It

Yeh baby, show me the money
Yeh baby, show me the money
Anthony Yeh had dropped a little, but he's back up to 81,000 now after raising his button to 3,200 and getting a call from the big blind.

Yeh lead out on the {K-Hearts}{8-Spades}{Q-Hearts} flop for 4,400, only to have the big blind check-raise all in. Yeh pondered a little before making the call to see the two hands tabled.

Yeh: {Q-Spades} {8-Diamonds}
Big blind: {K-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}

When the turn and river fell the {9-Diamonds} and {A-Clubs} Yeh sent his opponent to the rail while continuing to accumulate chips.
