It didn’t take long for play to stop for the day after the dinner break. Michael Stembera came back looking to double his short stack

He shoved with his first hand after the break with no callers then tried it again on his second. This time he was looked up by Martin Hanowski with AhTh to dominate Stembera’s As3s.

Stembra hit the Kd5c3h for a chance to stay alive and was one card from a double after the Kh turn. That chance ended with the Tc river to eliminate Stembra in 19th place for $49,888.

The tournament clock was paused with 1:26 left in the 90-minute level. The last two tables will return tomorrow at noon to play down to the final table.
