No flops on any of the three tables here in the early going, with all hands ending preflop with raises and/or reraises.
Eugene Katchalov just open-pushed all in from the small blind, and James St. Hilaire thought about it for a minute before letting it go. Katchalov has 375,000, and St. Hilaire 840,000.
All sixteen players are in their seats and cards are in the air.
Since the Main Event will not be decided until November, today's finale of Event No. 56, the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event, will determine who gets the last coveted WSOP gold bracelet of the summer.
We're about ten minutes away from the restart. Sixteen players return to battle for the $1 million-plus first prize. Back in a few.
The action continues at 1:00pm.
