$25k High Roller Update

As the Main Event is on dinner break, we checked in with the $25k High Roller. As we walked up to count chips, Dan Smith and Jonathan Jaffe were all in on a [8d][3s][5d][6hy board. Dan held [Td][Tc] against Jonathan's [As][7h]. The river fell [4h] to complete Jonathan's straight draw, and he will double up to take the chip lead, while simultaneously crippling Dan Smith. He was eliminated a few hands later.

Here are the chip counts for the remaining four players:

Jonathan Jaffe - 300,000
Paul Volpe - 275,000
Anthony Zinno - 233,000
Pratyush Buddiga - 175,000
