Hand #204: Aldemir made it 4,600,000 to go and Holmes filled up to the {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop, on which Holmes opted to check. Aldemir continued for 2,700,000 and Holmes sent the cards into the muck.

Hand #205: Holmes raised it up to 4,000,000 and Aldemir defended the big blind. On a flop of {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, Aldemir's check triggered a bet worth 5,800,000 by Holmes and a call by Aldemir. The {a-Hearts} turn was checked around and the {5-Diamonds} river completed the board. Aldemir checked once more and Holmes made it 25,000 to go, which won the pot without showdown.

Hand #206: Aldemir limped in and Holmes checked to the {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop, on which the latter checked. The check back by Aldemir led them to the {j-Hearts} turn and both checked it down once more. On the {k-Hearts} river, Holmes eventually bet 4,000,000 and Aldemir folded.

Yesterday, he gave the traditional "shuffle up and deal" announcement at the final table of the WSOP Main Event, and on Wednesday he returned for several other promotional endeavors. Once finished, he took the opportunity to enter his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet tournament, Event #79: $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty where every Poker Hall of Famer had a bounty on their head.

While not a member of the PHoF, Vaughn, too, had a target on his back as Jack Effel revealed the WSOP was putting a $10,000 bounty on the actor, much to the delight of players sat with him at Table 2 in the Brasilia Room.
