Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Last Break of the Night; Two Biggest Pots of the Tournament in Level 19

[user68268] • Nível 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Jason Mann now leading the way

Generally speaking, the level that follows the dinner break in most tournaments is rather subdued. While things may have started that way here on Day 4 of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event, fireworks shot into the air of the Amazon Room in the last quarter of the level.

The two biggest pot of the tournament were played towards the end of Level 19 with the blinds at 5,000/10,000/1,000. The first was won by Jason Mann and eliminated Dick van Luijk in stunning fashion. That pot propelled Mann to 2.35 million in chips, and he became the chip leader. The second massive pot went to Grayson Ramage. He took a banger from Nick Schwarmann right after the van Luijk hand that sent Ramage up to 2.09 million.

Other notable rises came from JC Tran, Brett Richey, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Marvin Rettenmaier, Annette Obrestad and Jackie Glazier — all of whom are proven faces in the game and will be very tough competition moving forward.

As per the standard of poker tournaments, bunches of players continued to hit the rail. We began to question whether or not the WSOP would cut the night short similar to what they did last year on Day 4, but it looks like we'll be sticking to plan and finishing out a full five levels. Those who won't be finishing include Jon Turner, Ludovic Lacay, Adam Kende, Daniel Hicks and Nick Guagenti.

Guagenti was eliminated in a three-way clash of big hands involving Martin Tonnesen and Jorn Walthaus. The money went in preflop to see Tonnesen's {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}, Walthaus' {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} and Guagenti's {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} do battle. When the dust had settled, Tonnesen's kings had held, giving him much more than a double, while sending Guagenti to the rail.

Vladimir Geshkenbein, Clement Tripodi, Max Steinberg, Andrea Dato and Jonathan Lane will all be continuing with large stacks, while the defending champion Greg Merson is still alive and well. Ronnie Bardah, the man who jointly tied Chris Bjorin's consecutive cash record of four with Christian Harder, is also still around.

With under 300 players remaining in the field, we'll see you back here in 20 minutes tim for the final level of the night.
