After ten levels of play and nearly three and a half hours of heads-up poker between Brandon Hall and Salman Jaddi a winner has yet to be decided.
Jaddi had the lead for some time but the patient Hall chipped away at him and was never at risk of elimination despite some frustrating early hands.
Jaddi too has been resilient and focused and never looked as if the pressure of playing heads up for a WSOP bracelet was getting to him. Whoever goes on to win this it is sure to be a continuation of an epic struggle tomorrow with neither player willing to give an inch.
The players were offered the option of one more hours play tonight but decided they had had enough for today and would come back refreshed and ready to resume battle for the first prize of $614,248 at 1 p.m.
