A weekend of fast-paced action has seen the gargantuan field for the WSOP main event cut to just 27 runners with Anton Morgenstern now leading the chip count.
The first milestone occurred on Saturday as Farzad Bonyadi became the bubble boy after his As Jc ran into the Ac Qh of Nick Schwarmann. After slow playing his top pair on a Jd 5s 3s flop, Bonyadi was left regretting that decision after the Ts and Kh on the turn and river handed the advantage to Schwarmann. Having committed his stack on the river, Bonyadi had to wait for almost five minutes while the rest of the tables in play completed their hands before his fate was sealed.As the cards were revealed he was confirmed as this year’s bubble boy but that didn’t mean he went home empty-handed. Thanks to the generosity of the WSOP, he will be able to try his luck again next year courtesy of a free main event seat.The post-bubble carnage ensured a rapid decline in the field and by the time today’s session came to a close it was Morgenstern leading the final few. Having scooped 21,955,000 chips, the German grinder managed to finish ahead of Sylvain Loosli on 14,125,000 and Chris Lindh holding 12,030,000.While Morgenstern’s chip lead will give him some breathing space going into the penultimate session, he’ll not have it all his own way when the action resumes. Joining the returning pack will be a number of recognisable faces including JC Tran with 11,970,000 chips, Carlos Mortensen holding 10,810,000 and Yevgeniy Timoshenko on 5,310,000.
