With plenty of action right on break time, PokerStars qualifier Jai Kemp doubled through Gary Diamond with pocket jacks against pocket 8’s on a 9-high board and now has over 600k in chips.
Conversely Team PokerStars Pro Lee Nelson lost a huge pot on a horrible beat after the break had officially commenced.

On a board of: Q 8 2, the action was hot after the flop with Mark Ericksen putting Nelson to the tank with an all-in raise.
Nelson went into the tank and had a chat with his opponent before calling for a large part of his stack and was very relieved as the players showed Ace-Queen (Nelson) and Ace-8 (Ericksen).
Relief turned to horror as an 8 peeled off on the river and Nelson plummeted to just 110k in chips and Nelson looks sick.
