MPC Red Dragon Day 1B live updates
3.40pm: Two more hands
Danny McDonagh has declared that we'll play two more hands until the end of the night. There's no way in the world anyone is catching Tomaz Yip in that time, which means he'll be your overnight leader. A full wrap is on its way.
3.30pm: No stopping Tomaz Yip
When you're hot, you're hot and at the moment Tomaz Yip is as hot as they get. He just took A♣K♦ up against Hossein Shabannezhad's pocket kings, all in pre-flop, and wouldn't you know what came on the board?
It ran A♦8♦2♣A♥3♥ and sent Shabannezhad back to his hotel room about five minutes earlier than everyone else. Yip moves beyond 200,000.
3.25am: Twenty minutes
We're going to play 20 minutes of this last level before bagging and tagging begins. Oh, and England have just gone 1-0 against Sweden in Kiev.
BLINDS UP. PLAYING 800-1,600 (200 ANTE) IN LEVEL 11
3.15am: Japanese chop
Nobuhiro Yabuuchi, of Japan, was in a great spot to double up his stack of 11,700. He open shoved from late position with A♠Q♥ and was insta-called by his countryman Takuo Serita, who was packing only A♦8♥.
But one by one, the cards conspired against Yabuuchi. They came 2♠4♣4♥5♣3♣ and that's a split pot.
