Daniel Bland has been hovering near the chip average for most of the final table but is now the first player to hit 4,000,000 with Kristy Arnett taking the hit.
Picking up the action on a board of 8♥6♥2♣9♣, Bland bet 220,000 and Arnett called. The river was the A♦ and Bland bet 580,000. Arnett cut out the chips from her stack and then called. Bland showed A♥8♠ for rivered two pair and Arnett mucked. Bland is playing 4,100,000, good for nearly one-third of the chips in play.
Right before the end of Level 30, Karo Galstyan doubled with A♦K♥ against the J♣10♦ of Vlad Tkachuk in a blind-versus-blind shove, to leave Tkachuk short-stacked.
