Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

One More Break

LWS Breeze Zuckerman

The 242 players still kicking around the Rio are on their last break of the evening. They'll be back in 20 minutes to play one hour of Level 21, during which the action will probably continue to slow down as it did after dinner. Day 6 of the biggest tournament of the year is so close you can reach out and touch it.

Evan Lamprea came back from dinner ready for action. He jumped to the chip lead with 3.6 million. Matt Affleck chipped up to 3.4 million to keep himself on the leader board, followed by Theo Jorgensen. Bryn Kenney moved up to 2.5 million, and John Racener rocketed from 600,000 to over 2 million. Most of his chips came courtesy of Brent Hanks, whose five-bet shove with jacks ran smack into Racener's aces. Steve Billirakis, Brett Richey, Dash Dudley, Jason DeWitt, and Will "the Thrill" Failla also joined Hanks in the payout line.

Dorothy VonSachsen was dispatched to the rail, and her elimination meant that Breeze Zuckerman locked up the title of last woman standing. Zuckerman is just above average stack with 1.1 million.
