Level 28 of the PokerStars Festival Main Event very nearly set a record. Very nearly. The clock had only about five minutes on it and not a single player had been eliminated, making it the first level of the entire tournament to suffer a knockout drought.

But then Guillem Cusco Bach, who was among the short-stacks, found J♦J♥ and Rehman Kassam, who was nearer the other end of the leader board, picked up A♠A♥. It all went in. A dry board later and Bach was out.

So it was that the tournament hit its official final table and the last eight went on a 75-minute dinner break. When they return, they'll have the following stacks.
