Niall Farrell and Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst are sitting across from each other at a table on the far side of the room. Selbst's stack is a little lower than earlier at around 37,000 after she was initially off to a fast start. Meanwhile, Farrell is also having trouble getting anything going in the first half of the day.
In a hand just before the break, Farrell was facing a bet from his opponent for 5,000 with the pot at around 10,000 board showing . He tanked for a few minutes before calling. His opponent turned over , while Farrell tossed his hand into the muck. While he didn't expose his hand, he did share with the table that he had pocket tens. After the hand, Farrell's stack was less than half the opening stack with 13,500 left for him to try to run it up with.
