Last break of the night

The 65 remaining players are on their last break of the night.  The tournament staff are coloring up and racing off the 100 chips during this break.  When the players return, they will play one more level before bagging up their chips for the night.  Day 2 will resume at 12pm and will play down until an eventual winner.

James Woods has been eliminated

At 800/1,600 blinds, James Woods moved all in from middle position for his last 11,700.  The button reraised to 25,000 and the blinds got out of the way.  James was behind with king ten against the button's ace jack.  The [2h][6d][7s][5d][Qh] board was no help to James, and he will be eliminated.

James Woods knocks one out

A player was all in and at risk holding [As][Kd] against James Woods's [9s][9c].  Before the flop came out, a cocktail waitress asked James if he wanted a drink, to which he replied, "I may, hold on."  The [4h][4c][Qc] flop was good for James, as was the [8s] turn.  When the [3h] hit the river, James told his opponent good game and promptly ordered a beverage.  James now sits on approximately 34,000.

Cards back in the air
