Event 18: Break Time

$1850 + $150 No Limit Hold'em    

Edward Pham moved in for 55,500 and got called down by Alex Santiago, who held AK.  Edward's AJ was dominated, but the board came J 3 3 Q 2 and Edward took the pot with Jacks-up.  After doubling up Edward, Alex was left short. 

Alex got his last chips in a few hands later against Justin Gardenhire.  Alex held K8 off and had run into a dominating AK.  The board came A 8 4 6 4 and Justin took the pot.  Alex hit the rail.

Alon Shahar and Paul Richardson have also departed.

30 players remain.  They're on break now as the staff colors up the black 100 chips.

Stanislav 'Steve' Barshak is the chip leader and the only player over 400k.
