Final table

The Colossus is finally at a final table. Ray Henson, who started the day as the chip leader, is now the short stack.

Razzament bubble

Right before they hit the dinner break, the razz event bubble burst. Eli Elezra and Max Pescatori are both in the top 10 as the evening hits. Updates here.

I bet pot

Eric Baldwin, who has won a bracelet already, is the biggest name near the chip lead in the pot-limit event. Tom Marchese, Jonathan Duhamel, Joe Cada and Hoyt Corkins are all still alive late in the day. Updates here.

Tuan Le wins

We’re impressed. Tuan Le won the $10K 2-7 triple draw for the second year in a row. That, quite simply, is nut considering the level of competition willing to shell out $10K to play a WSOP event. If there’s a better player in the world in this game than Tuan Le, please point them out to us, because we’re betting on him. Read about it here. He won $322K for the title, and his second bracelet. Phil Galfond was fourth.

It’s official

There was some doubt whether the Colossus would play down to a winner at one point. But now, they are on dinner break and will play down to just a final table before bagging up the chips.

Still Le

Tuan Le is closing in on having half the chips in play in the $10K event. He’s pretty good at 2-7 lowball draw, we guess.

HU time

The $10K heads-up championship is always a good one because of the matchups it produces. Early on, however, it’s a lot of byes. 113 of them to be exact. The best matchup in the first round was undoubtedly Doug Polk vs. Andrew Lichtenberger; read about it here.

That didn’t take long

The best known player left in the field, Mike Leah, ran his A-K into a pair of aces, and went out in 39th (well not according to the hand description, but according to the payouts). Read about it here.

Slow start today

Pretty much everything starts at 2 p.m. today, including the Colossus and the $10K draw event. This is the first time there will be six events going all at once in the Rio.

It’s quite a day. The Colussus, the biggest tournament ever staged live, could wrap up today (there has been some confusion over whether it would just play to a final table or to a winner today). Tuan Le and several other pros are at a final table. And the $10K heads-up event begins, which is sure to offer lots of intriguing matchups.

Good news, bad news
