The final day of Event #12: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'Em is about to get started at 12:00 p.m. local time. The action will be taking place inside the Brasilia Room of the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

When play resumes, Melissa Gillett will be leading the remaining 23 players with 3,443,000 chips. Her next closest opponent is Aditya Agarwal with 1,286,000 chips, and Billy Rodgers rounds out the top three with 1,277,000 chips.

The blinds will continue at 6,000/12,000 with a 2,000 ante for another 30 minutes, and will then be increasing every hour. There will be a 20-minute break after every two levels and a dinner break after the sixth level around 7:00 p.m. The action will conclude once a winner is crowned, so the players should prepare for a long, grueling day.

Cards in the Air

Action folded around to Robert Lisser in the small blind, and he decided to move all in for his last 117,000 chips.

Australia's Melissa Gillett was in the big blind and had a mountain of chips in front of her, as she came in to the day as the overwhelming chip leader. After a few moments, Gillett called.

Lisser tabled {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Gillett showed {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Gillett picked up a pair of fives, putting Lisser in even more danger holding two under cards.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and Lisser picked up some outs to make a flush or a straight. But the river was the {6-Clubs} and Lisser was unable to improve, sending him to the rail in 23rd place.

Gillett Busts Another One

Niveau 21 : 6,000/12,000, 2,000 ante

With over 200,000 in the pot and the board reading {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{8-Clubs}, Yu Li moved all in and put his opponent, Melissa Gillett, to the test. Gillett sat and pondered what do for several minutes and finally came to the conclusion of calling. Li said "nice call" before even seeing his opponent's hand as he rolled over {A-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. Gillett tabled {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and when the {5-Hearts} came on the river she improved to a full house eliminating Li from the tournament.

After the hand, Phil Collins stated from across the table, "All these young kids want to misbehave. But you're a principal, this is what you deal with for a living."

Caleb Patrick limped in from early position, and David Shober immediately moved all in for about 165,000 from middle position. Action folded back around to Patrick and he snap-called.

Shober tabled {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Patrick revealed {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}.

The flop came {a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Shober was up and out of his seat when he saw that Patrick flopped top set. The turn was the {8-Hearts} and Shober was drawing dead to the {7-Diamonds} on the river to finish in 18th.
