Dinner Break

• Level 6: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

The remaining four players are now on a 60-minute dinner break.

Rail Removal

• Level 6: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

Security guards have officially entered the ESPN Main Stage and are making their way through the British rail. The rowdiest of the rail birds are now being removed from the stands. Amid numerous objections from the several Brits in attendance, the security officers are being firm in their stance that they must go.

The shouts, chants, and cheers from the British rail are not limited to simply the final table, but can be heard throughout the entire Amazon room. Recently we found a tweet about this from Justin Bonomo who is playing on the other side of the Amazon room.

As the Brits were escorted out of the stage, all that remained in their wake is spilled beer and empty cups and bottles strewn about the stands.

Shoe Bomb!

• Level 6: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

Join the WSOP livestream and watch the British rail do a shoe bomb in about 5 minutes.

It's a Show in Here

• Level 6: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

The British rail is firing on all cylinders and they are loud. They are singing, chanting, stomping and drinking heavily.

Limped Pot Sees Big Payoff

Antonio Esfandiari limped on the button, Jeremiah Fitzpatrick limped from the small blind and Jonathan Lane tapped the table.

The flop came {3-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {J-Spades}, Fitzpatrick checked, Lane bet 60,000, Esfandiari called and Fitzpatrick folded. The turn came {4-Diamonds}, Lane checked and Esfandiari bet 135,000. Lane called and the river came {10-Diamonds}.

Lane checked and Esfandiari bet 300,000. Lane took several moments before deciding to call. Esfandiari tabled {4-Clubs} {4-Spades} for a turned set and Lane mucked.

Alessandro Longobardi Eliminated in 6th Place ($63,988)

Alessandro Longobardi - 6th Place

Antonio Esfandiari opened to 65,000 from under the gun and Alessandro Longobardi replied by moving all in from the button. Jonathan Lane looked down at his cards from the small blind and re-shipped all in over the top.

Craig McCorkell stared at his cards in the big blind and tanked for over a minute before mucking. Esfandiari quickly got out of the way and the hands were shown:

Longobardi: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Lane: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

The board came {5-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{7-Spades} and Lonobardi was not able to find his ever elusive pair of jacks. He will collect $63,988 for his efforts.
