The excitement is at fever pitch here in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, with the viewers at home being given plenty to whet their appetite in this last hour of play.
Max Heinzelmann, who only turned 21 more than one week ago, is already making his presence felt at the ESPN feature table, all but stacking Shaun Deeb just before the previous break to move up to more than 500,000 in chips. He’ll still have a long way to go if he’s going to catch Guillaume Darcourt (948,400) followed by Daryl Jace (927,000), Chris Bonita (887,100), and Patrick Poirier (824,000)
Phil Hellmuth’s still fighting on, but unfortunately Mike Caro, Noah Boeken and Jason Alexander have all been amongst the pre-dinner break casualties.
Speaking of dinner, it’s time for all of us to get out of here and rustle up some grub! Play will resume at 7.25pm PST (GMT -7). See you in two hours!
