James Chen raised to 225,000 first to act and was called by Ryan Tosoc on the button and Erik Seidel in the big blind. On the {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop, Seidel checked and Chen's bet of 400,000 won the pot right there.

In the last hand before dinner, Tosoc raised the cutoff to 350,000 and Chen came along from the big blind. They checked down the board {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and Chen announced queens.

"Can I see your hand please?" Tosoc asked and added "I have aces," before Chen turned over {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}. Tosoc not only had aces but rivered a straight with {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

"I don't want to be a dick, it is just a crucial part of the tournament" Tosoc apologized and Chen instantly came back with a "then I will do this to everyone, just so you know."

The remaining nine players are now on a 60-minute dinner break and the action resumes at 9.53 p.m. local time with the following stack sizes and big blinds for the next level.
