Jack Effel got on the mic and kept his remarks mercifully short. He mentioned an MMA fight card being hosted tonight at the Rio and then got down to business.
"In the true fighting spirit that all of our remaining players share today, we'd like to invite an honored guest today to kick off the last day of the WSOP Main Event before November," said Effel. He then introduced MMA fighter Kevin "the Monster" Randleman, a former UFC heavyweight champion.
"You guys are all very talented," said Randleman. "I hope you guys have good luck along with that talent. Dealers, shuffle up and deal!"
With that, cards are in the air. 93 minutes remain in the level.
