They are down to 27, so there will be a short delay while the final three tables are redrawn.

And then there were 26. Jeff Bryan limped in the cutoff and Philip Hilm, who has been active (and, at times, a little fishy) rasied to 320k on the button. The blinds got out of the way and Jeff, after much thought, pushed all-in. Philp insta-called and flipped over ace-king suited. Jeff was delighted to see this as it meant his jack-ten off was live. A flop of Q77 promised much for Philip but a ten on the turn put Jeff in front. He would need to dodge only nice cards (ace, king or jack) to stay alive. The river, however, was the jack and Philip took down the pot with Broadway.

Sorry about the long delay. The fire alarm went off in the media centre so we nipped over to the casino to play dice while they sorted things out. We didn't win - it was a real crapshoot.

We're back now, and so are the players. They've just started a new level of 50k/100k with 10k running. Jon Kalmar is back in the hunt on 6 million. They are already down to 19, so it could be an early bath.

In the vast Amazon Room, formerly not big enough even to accommodate all players from just one of the four starting days, play has been condensed to one small corner of the room. 19 players remain including

- Englishman Jon Kalmar
- former world champion Scotty Nguyen
- 5th place finisher in the $50,000 HORSE event Kenny Tran
- last year's $10,000 PLO winner Lee Watkinson
- 2001 bracelet winner Bob Slezak
- Alex Kravchenko who has already cashed 5 times at this series including a win in the $1,500 Omaha hi/lo

I could smell the bluff back in the cheap seats, but could Kenny?

After a short ponder he made the call with Jh Th, which bested Tuan's busted straight and flush draw: Qc Tc. Perhaps Tuan should have bet the flop and/or raised the turn? We shall never know.

I read only yesterday on 2+2 how Kenny Tran is famous for his sick reads. I immediately failed to put any money on him, or even tell anyone.

Lee Watkinson just doubled through Bill Spadea. Classic race: pocket sevens for Skalie and ace-king for Bill. Lee spiked a king on the river to survive. Some bizarre noises came from the balcony when it hit - I thought someone had been impaled by the ESPN boom.

Forgot to mention: they are down to two tables. Scott Freeman, whom Adam spent most of Day 3 sitting next to, was the two-table bubble boy. He got $333k for his troubles. Next one out gets $381k.

Now that they're down to two tables, it really is impossible to get anywhere near the action, so we're going to call it a night as we can get any good photos and/or coverage for you. Tomorrow is a rest day. We'll see you at the final table on Tuesday!
