MPC Red Dragon Day 1C live updates
9.40pm: Clock paused
The clock is paused for the end of the day. We'll play a couple more hands then bagging will commence. It's a close one tonight, with no clear leader. You'll need to wait for the wrap, which will follow shortly, to know who is ahead.
9.25pm: Benton bludgeoned by Liu's boat
Aaron Benton has just lost a huge chunk of his stack, doubling up Yi Liu in a cooler at any time of the day, let alone with 15 minutes left on the clock. Benton was in the big blind, which explains how he got to see a flop with 5♣2♥. And he must have liked the 5♥[10h]5♠A♦Q♦ board.
However Liu had A♠5♦ for the boat and managed to get paid off. Benton has about 16,000 left, which is pretty much what he started with.
