Linjun Zhao Leading with 16 Left

We just lost Haji Jalalov in 18th place, and Brent Hart in 17th place, leaving us with just 16 players now. Linjun Zhao, who started the day as one of the big stacks, appears to be in the chip lead right now with over three million in chips. He has a few players closed to him, as well as notables Darren Healy and Stanley Buffett still in the hunt as well.

When we bag up tonight, we will grab the names and chip counts of every player still remaining, and post them here, so don't go anywhere!

Runner Runner Sends Us Into the Money

After two short stack double ups, it looked like we would have a third, as there was an all in between two players after a flop of [Qs][Jh][5h]. The short stack was in great shape, holding pocket queens for top set to the pocket kings of his opponent.

A ten on the turn opened up some new outs for the big stack, and a nine on the river completed the runner runner straight. Much of the table let out a big groan at the bad beat, but they were also all relieved, as it locked up a payday for the 39 remaining players.


We Are on the Money Bubble

The clock says 40 players, which means we are on the direct money bubble now, and have started hand-for-hand play. One of the players still alive will walk home empty handed, while the 39 remaining will all earn $575 at least.
