Wow. Wow. Wow.

When we came back from the dinner break, Eliyahu Levy held over a third of the chips in play with five left. Now, he is our fifth place finisher. Most of the damage was done by Tomas Junek. Action started with Peter Eastgate raising in the cutoff. He got three callers: Levy on the button, Junek in the small blind, and Donald Vogel in the big blind.

The flop came down {7-Clubs}{9-Spades}{10-Clubs}, and it checked around to Levy, who fired out 500,000. Junek thought for about 30 seconds before moving all in for just under three million. It got back around to Levy, and he thought for about five seconds before calling, making the biggest pot we've seen all tournament.

Levy: {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Junek: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

Junek was miles ahead with his set, and Levy would need runner runner to win the pot. That went out the window when the turn and river both came deuces, and Junek took the massive pot to double up to six million.

On the next hand, Levy shoved all in with {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, and Vogel called with {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}. This time, the best hand held, as the board ran out {q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. In a flash, Levy became our fifth place finisher, while Junek is now our overwhelming chip leader.
