Event #57 Main Event Day 7

12:04 PM
Day 7 has the goal of reaching the magic number of 27 which will fill 3 tables in the Amazon room. The field has 78 players still, and 8 of them are under 1 million in chips. They will feel almost immediate pressure from everyone else, especially the top 14 players with over 5 million chips each. Stay with us as we see who makes it in another round of eliminations.

12:49 PM
Jean-Robert Bellande moved in for his last 815,000 and was called by Jeff Banghart. After a raise from Duy Le, Banghart folded pocket J's leaving the race between Bellande and Le. Bellande had Q 10 and Le had A Q. With none of the cards dealt helping either player, Bellande busts out of the Main Event with a round of applause from the railbirds. Shortly after Jeff Banghart moved in with his last 880,000 and was called by Matt Harris. Harris had pocket K's and Banghart had pocket Q's. Another King on the flop directed Banghart to the cashier's cage for a payout.

Hasan Habib, Denis Pisarev and Jim McCrink have just been moved to the ESPN feature table. Habib has 1,750,000 chips, Pisarev 1,650,000 and McCrink 1,660,000. Player count is at 72.

3:28 PM
Player Marcel Cole took his entire stack of 903,000 to the middle with pocket 8's and was called by Nicolas Babel wtih A K. On the flop came another Ace which sent the message to Cole that he would have to come back next year for a shot at the Main Event bracelet. John Armbrust made his all-in move with A K and was called by Redmond Lee with pocket J's. Things looked good for Armbrust as another Ace came on the flop. But luck turned on him as another Jack came on the turn, giving Lee a set and Armbrust $114,205 for his efforts.

4:10 PM
Jim McCrink and William Thorson went toe to toe with McCrink having pocket 9's plus 1,820,000 in the middle and Thorson with K Q suited. McCrink was good until the Queen card came on the turn. Thorson ended up with 7,300,000 chips in front of him and McCrink had to settle for a six figure payout. Pro player Scott Clements also gained more chips as he busted the pocket K's of Bill Melvin with paired Aces that he made on the river. This helped to push Clements to the 3,600,000 chip mark.

4:49 PM
John Racener is now over the 10 million chip mark and the current chip leader after taking out Matt Harris when he paired his Ace card on the river. There are now just 53 players at the tables.

5:10 PM
David Benyamine lost the last of his chips and is out of the Main Event. Benyamine was ahead until Pascal LeFrancois paired his Ace card, ending a terrific run for Benyamine.

Dinner break for the next 90 minutes.

9:02 PM
Play will soon move to level 29 wtih blinds at 50,000/100,000 and ante of 10,000. The biggest pot of the Main Event just took place with Theo Jorgensen, Cuong Nguyen and Brandon Steven. After a flop of K 5 9, all three began to raise and re-raise until the size of the pot reached 19.52 million! When the action got too heavy, Steven folded. Jorgensen had A 3 of clubs which gave him a flush draw and Cuong showed K J for top pair with Kings. By the river card, Cuong came out on top and became the mighty chip leader with over 19 million in chips.

Jorgensen fell to 2.3 million. But that has not stopped him. Player Jerry Payne went all-in with just over 1 million chips and Jorgensen called him. Jorgensen ended up with a set of 5's that won the hand and pushed him back over 4 million in his stack, while Payne went to pick up $206,395 from the cashier's cage.

11:28 PM
Play is taking place at level 30 having blinds of 60,000/120,000 and ante of 15,000. Fortune departed from Theo Jorgensen as he went from chip leader to railbird. In a all-in combat situation between him and John Racener, Racener had two pair (Q's and A's) by the river for the win.
