Action folded over to Max Steinberg on the button and he raised it up to 50,000. Next to act was Ryan Laplante who took a few seconds measuring out his stack before moving all in for around 450,000. Dylan Hortin in the big blind was up next and he moved all in. Steinberg folded, and cards were tabled.
The board came and Laplante was eliminated after he failed to grab hold of anything. Hortin now sits with around 2,850,000 and holds a strong chip lead on the rest of the table.
Dylan Hortin opened to 48,000 under the gun and Samuel Gerber three-bet to what looked to be about 120,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Hortin who four-bet to 325,000. A call from Gerber landed a flop.
Hortin fired 415,000, enough to get Gerber to lay it down.

The players are currently in the midst of a 20-minute break.
Samuel Gerber raised from under the gun and made it 52,000 and action folded around to Vitaly Mescheriakov in the big blind who three-bet to 125,000. After a few moments Gerber moved all in and was snap called.
The board came and the heart on the river gave Gerber a winning flush. Despite hitting his pair of aces on the river Meshcheriakov came up second best and was sent packing.
Dylan Hortin opened this recent hand and made it 45,000. David Nicholson made the call, and Samuel Gerber three-bet to 120,000 from the button. Hortin got out of the way, and Nicholson four-bet to 260,000. Gerber took his time before announcing all in. Action was back to Nicholson who seemed to have got his hand stuck in the cookie jar. Nicholson eventually did make the fold and Gerber took down the pot.
Dylan Hortin raised it up from from the cut-off making it 45,000. Christopher Shaw in the small blind then three-bet to 105,000. Hortin took his time pondering his best option before announcing all in and getting snap called by Shaw.
The board came and Shaw was sent packing when his pair of jacks couldn't compete with his opponent's flopped pair of aces.
The final table is underway and mostly every hand has consisted of a player raising and stealing the blinds and antes.
