Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Lamb Chops And Ketchup For Dinner

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
No lamb for Negreanu who's no more.

The 175 players or so left are now on an hour and 50 minute dinner break. Ben Lamb took the chip lead for a bit that he's had at numerous points throughout the Main Event. But if you'd like some ketchup with your lamb, it's Pius Heinz who has been near the top of the leaderboard all day as the only man currently above the four million chip point.

Among the 40 players or so to have hit the rail since last break was most notably Daniel Negreanu who was at the feature table all day up until his bustout. Negreanu was down to his last 95,000 and got it in good preflop with {10-}{10-} against Rupert Elder’s {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. The {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop was clean but the turn was a fateful {A-Spades} and the {4-Clubs} on the river was of no help to Negreanu who was eliminated.

Besides Negreanu, Richard Lyndaker, Kevin Saul, Paul Volpe, Joe Tehan and Matt Stout all hit the rail too since the last break.

We will have chip counts of hopefully all of the players coming to you shortly so stay tuned for that while you enjoy the dinner break. Play will resume at 8:15 p.m. PST so be sure to join us back then too.
