Players are now on their last 20-minute break of the night; play will resume on Level 17 and play through to Level 20 to finish up Day 1.
The tournament is now contained in the Brasilia Room and part of the Pavilion Room, with roughly 132 total tables left in play.
There's been no official word on total entrants for the day, but as of right now it looks like the event is down to about 1,200 players.
Tony Parille called an all-in from the button, sitting on the small blind with the flop showing. The at-risk player went all-in with his last 33,000, and it looked like Parille's was in bad shape against the opponent's .
The came on the turn, however, and Parille couldn't hold back his excitement when the straight came in. The hand put Parille up to 235,000.
One of the biggest stacks in the room, David Elet, is seated three seats over to Parille's left, and Elet is sitting on 579,500 in chips.
Phil Hellmuth has re-entered the tournament, and he's up to 133,000 chips.
In early position, Hellmuth and an opponent on the big blind arrived at the river on a very dynamic board. The big blind led out for 10,000 and Hellmuth raised to 37,000 and got the call.
"Straight flush," said Hellmuth as he tabled the and scooped the pot.
Players at Pavilion White #132 keep trying to bluff John Templeton, and Templeton keeps making the right calls.
In middle position, Templeton checked to an opponent on the button, with the board showing and significant chips already in the pot. The button shoved for 49,000, and Templeton went into the tank once again.
Once again, Templeton made the right call after thinking it over for a couple of minutes, showing to beat his opponent's missed flush draw.
