Tomasz Jaroslaw just played his last hand – re-jamming with pocket eights – only to run into pocket jacks and fail to find a third eight on the [As Ad Ts] [7d][3s] board. He looked a little sad but gathered his sparse belongings and disappeared to the rail. Just 240 players are left now – the end closes in and there’s some nervous looking short stacks biting their nails with the end tantalisingly in sight.
It’s hard to ascertain the chip leader but one of the players – Dawid Chmura – is certainly in the reckoning with 410,000 to his name. It will be interesting to see who ascends to the chip lead come the close of play.
