Four players are out since the start of three table play. The field is almost down to two tables and Jacob Seale (pictured) played a role in making that happen.
Francisco Vasquez shoved for 77,000 in early position with 10♣10♠ and Seale called on his direct left with A♣K♦. An ace flopped and a king turned to give Seale the pot. He chips up to 410,000.
Richard Ross was felted on another table in a process that started with him doubling up Chris Authement. Ross had Authement at risk with J♥J♠ for 240,000 but was in hell against Authement's A♦A♥.
No help came and Ross departed two hands later for his last 50,000. Brian Maxwell finished him off and is playing 260,000 as a result.
For the time being, Authement is up to 500,000 as he continues his swingy day.
