Victor Ramdin has spent much of the early part of the day as the shortest stack at the table and as such it is not surprising that he was the first player to find himself all in. The hand in question started when Ramdin opened up the pot with a raise preflop. Chris Vtich three-bet from the cutoff and only Ramdin would rumble.
The flop would see Ramdin check-call a bet from Vitch and the would hit the river. Ramdin only had a few big bets at this point and would check-raise on the turn. Vitch then made it a third bet and Ramdin flicked in the last of his chips.
Vitch needed a ten to split the pot, but the on the river was good enough to send Ramdin the double-up and leave Vitch as the short stack.

The first hand back from the break went like this. Christopher Vitch opened up the hand and Ian Johns quickly three-bet. Matthew Schreiber then made it four bets to go and Vitch got out of the way. A call from Johns and three cards would be dealt on the felt.
On the flop, Johns would check-call a bet from Schreiber and a would hit the turn. John again check-called and he and Schreiber watched a complete the board on the river. This time both players checked and turned their hands over.
Queens were good for Schreiber and raked in the pot.
The players are back from their break and ready for more limit hold'em action. At this point it is Victor Ramdin and Christopher Vitch who have considerably less than they started the day with.

Not a very eventful level, the ten players who started the day will head on their first 20-minute break of the day.
Darin Thomas opened it up with a raise and got two callers in Sean Rice and Ian Johns. The flop would see Thomas lead and Rice raise it up. Johns got out of the way and Thomas called as a was dealt on the turn. This time Thomas would check-call a bet from Rice and a would be the last card dealt on the felt.
When both players checked the river, Thomas tabled his , enough to rake in the pot late in this second level.
Christopher Vitch opened up the action by flicking out a raise. Preston Derden was the only player who wanted to rumble, throwing in a call from the big blind.
The flop would see Derden check-call a bet from Vitch as a turn card was flipped onto the felt. Both players checked here and then did the same when a hit the river.
When Derden tabled his , the ace high was enough to see Vitch's cards into the muck and a pot sent the way of Derden.
Victor Ramdin opened with a raise and was called by Sean Rice and Ian Johns from the big blind.
The flop fell and it checked to Rice who bet out. Johns threw out a check-raise and Ramdin got out of the way. Rice called and the turn brought the . Johns bet fourth street and Rice called once again. The river was the and Johns fired one more bet. Rice called and showed for nines and fives, which was ahead of Johns' for queen-ten high.
The play has been quite slow during this second level, but Ian Johns has still been getting quite active. Johns recently took part in two hands back-to-back and they went a little something like this:
