On the last hand before dinner break, chip leader Maroun Akiki (Orlando) calls the 24k all in of Russell Waggoner (Nokomis, FL).

Waggoner is in position for a double-up with KQ vs K8, but a double-paired board with an Ace chops the pot.

Waggoner, who finished second ($2,591) in the NLH/PLO Mixed (Event 3) tournament, gets to stick around, while Akiki still has a commanding chip lead at 174k (87 bb).

Players are on dinner break and resume play with blinds going to 1k/2k/300 ante.
