WSOP ME 2010 Dinner Break Chip Count

Even poker-playing millionaires have to eat sometime.The seven remaining players still alive in their quest for the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event Championship went on a 90-minute dinner break.  Play is scheduled to resume at 8:15 pm on Saturday night.

All remaining players are guaranteed to receive at least $1,356,720 in prize money.  So far, only two players have been eliminated after six hours of play.  Soi Nguyen was the first player to exit in ninth place.  Matthew Jarvis was the eighth-place finisher.  Based on what’s taken place so far, including a few astounding hands, the final stages of the world championship should be both thrilling and unpredictable.
Incredibly, the top two chip leaders are separated by a single chip.  Micheal “the Grinder” Mizrachi leads by the slimmest of margins — 50,525,000 to Johnathan Duhamel’s 50,500,000.  When players took their dinner break, the chip counts were as follows:
SEAT 1:  Jason Senti — 22,775,000
SEAT 2:  Joseph Cheong — 30,350,000
SEAT 3:  John Dolan — 19,250,000
SEAT 4:  Jonathan Duhamel — 50,500,000
SEAT 5:  Michael Mizrachi — 50,575,000
SEAT 6:  John Racener — 25,675,000
SEAT 7:  Filippo Candio — 23,525,000
Play will continue all night until only two players remain.

Heads-up play will resume on Monday, November 8th at 8 pm PST when the final two will play down to a winner.  Coverage of the final table will air in a two-hour telecast on Tuesday at 10 pm ET on ESPN.
