Players are on a 10 minute break and this is clearly Jesse Yaginuma's tournament to lose as he has more than half the chips in play. Since the final table began Yaginuma has been picking his spots to raise and has been taking down small pots. He's also not afraid to let hands go when players play back at him.
Here are the latest chip counts:
Jesse Yaginuma (Silver Spring, MD) 1.6 million
Steve Russell (Coolville, OH) 366k
Mike Tauman (Metuchen, NJ) 355k
When play resumes blinds are 6k/12k/2k ante.
