Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Candio Doesn't Lovett At All

• Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante
Filippo Candio on Day 1

Apparently we missed a bit of a monster pot just before the break.

Filippo Candio had about 120,000 chips one hand before the recess, and now one hand after, he has just 900 left. We got the details from Chris Lovett, the man who ended up dragging the big pot. Candio was the first raiser, and Lovett was the one doing the shoving with pocket jacks. Candio called off all but his last 900 with {A-} {K-}, and he'd never catch up. The board ran {Q-} {10-} {6-} {Q-} {9-}, and Lovett had the pot locked up one card early.

Filippo Candio has now drawn the television cameras to his table as he is officially on elimination watch. Lovett has about 240,000 after binking that big double.
