PCA-2010-thumbnail.jpgWe're down to two tables and Dutchman Ruben 'rubentv' Visser has moved into the lead while overnight chip monster Faraz Jaka has slipped below the 2,010,000 average. We're back to eight-handed play across these last two tables. The pressure is ramping up yet again with half of the remaining players gaining a final table berth.

Even short stack Nikolaos Alafogiannis has 15 big blinds so there's no guarantees for any of these 16 remaining players. Six more bust-outs until we hit the six-figure payouts.
