There are 11 players left in Event #11 $365 NLH and they have just returned from break. The field is now playing 3,000/6,000 blinds with a 1,000 ante.
Randal Sklar is alive and fighting with a short stack. He currently sits on 28,000. If Randal makes the final table he will take the lead in the WSOPC Casino Champion points race.
A floor had to be called to the feature table for a slight controversy... here's what happened: It was Lucas Picking's action, and the next player to act didn't realize and attempted to raise. Lucas moved all in, and the ruling was made that the raise could be pulled back. That player was confused as to what his options are, and it was reaffirmed that he could indeed pull back his chips. He elected to do so and fold his hand, and the rest of the table folded around. Lucas survived this hand, but was eliminated a few hands after the redraw.
After a raise and a three bet by Mike Quibble, Theodore Driscoll made the call as well as the original raiser. The three saw a [Kd][Ts][Jc] flop, and Mike Quibble made a bet before Theodore moved all in. The third opponent folded and Mike said he could not get away from his hand, and called, tabling [Ad][Ac]. Driscoll was behind, but had a fair number of outs, with his [Ks][Qs]. Theodore picked up even more outs on the [2s] turn, but missed his draw when the [4c] hit the river. Theodore will exit the WSOP Circuit Main Event in 31st place, good for $4,112.
We had a huge clash at the feature table when one player's [Qd][Qc] ran into another Greg White's [Ks][Kh]. Greg was all in preflop for 317,000, and he had a sweat with a lot of paint on the [2h][Jh][Ac][As][Jc] board. Greg will double up and now sits on almost 70 big blinds with 36 players remaining.
A player in the hijack position moved all in and Georgette K moved all in for a similar stack in the small blind. The player in the big blind made the call, having both players covered, and the three revealed their hands:
Big Blind [Qs][Qd]
The pocket queens would hold through a [8h][9s][5d][5s][Ts] runout, and the field is now two players lighter.

The button raised to 13,000 at 3,000/6,000 blinds with a 1,000 ante, and the player in the big blind moved all in for 17,000. The button called, and the hands were exposed:
Big Blind [Qh][9h]
The action was halted as there was an all in and a call on another table. Eventually, the flop was dealt, and it was [9c][2c][5h]. The big blind was a 79% favorite to survive the all in, but that all changed when the [5d] hit the turn. Now the big blind would need one of the two remaining nines in the deck to survive. It was not to be as the [Ad] hit the river, eliminating the big blind on the bubble.
At the other table, the all in player had [3h][3c] against [Jd][7d] and fell behind on the [4h][Qs][Jh] flop. The [5s] turn was no help but the magical [3s] river saved earned him half of a mincash.

Only a few players in the room have over 100,000 so far, and Georgette K has just joined that group. She was all in on a [3d][2c][4h] flop holding the nuts with [6c][5c] against another player's [As][Ad] and another player's [Ac][3h]. She was almost a lock to win the hand until the [4d] turn opened up five outs against her. The river was the [Ts], and Georgette was pushed a monster pot. After stacking her chips for the next three hands, it was determined that Georgette won approximately 105,000 in that pot.
