The remaining 35 players bagged and tagged their chips and will return on Tuesday at 2 p.m. local time. All chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.
On the second to last hand of the night, Chris Brewer and Bryce Yockey had built a sizeable pot on a board showing .
Brewer bet 140,000 on the river, and Yockey did not take long before announcing a raise to put Brewer all-in. Brewer called immediately and turned over for the nut straight. Yockey showed for a smaller straight and slid the chips over to Brewer.
Three ways to the turn, Eli Elezra checked out of the big blind and the same applied for Robert Campbell from under the gun. Chad Campbell then bet 100,000 on the button, which Elezra reluctantly called and another call behind followed.
Elezra jammed the river and his two opponents folded. "I wish I had what I was repping," Chad Campbell said in table chat.
The tournament director has just announced that each table will be dealt three more hands until bagging and tagging for the night.
Ben Lamb and Felipe Ramos were heads up to fourth street, when Ramos bet and Lamb called.

Felipe Ramos: /
Ramos continued betting on fifth and sixth streets, and Lamb continued calling. On seventh street, Ramos checked and Lamb fired a bet. Ramos called and Lamb turned over for 8-7-5-3-2 and Ramos slid his cards into the muck.

Both players drew one again on the final draw and then checked down.
Elezra showed an ace and Campbell motioned that it was good. Elezra then revealed his entire holding of and Campbell mucked — conceding the pot to Elezra.
