ANZPT Darwin Day 2: Level 10 (blinds 600-1200, ante 100)

5:40pm: An early minute

With ten minutes remaining on the clock, tournament staff have wisely called a halt to proceedings rather than worry about redrawing for the final two tables. So that's it, we're done for today!

It appears that Jack Drake will be our chip leader with around 120,000 while ANZ Player of the Year contenders in Leo Boxell and Danny Chevalier are both safely through the day which should provide some interesting moments tomorrow.

We'll be back with complete counts, seating draw and a wrap of the day's action for you shortly.

5:40pm: Calder falls

Jeremy Calder made his final stand, pushing his last 13,500 from the cutoff with K♥9♦ with Michael Guzzardi making the call holding A♥2♠.

The board ran out J♦Q♠4♥J♣7♠ to leave Guzzardi's ace-high in front and eliminate Calder in 19th place.

5:35pm: Taylor cracks Chevalier's kings

It's been slow going this level as the 19 remaining players now appear content to shut up shop to try and reach day 3 tomorrow.

One player who moved some chips was Mark Taylor and he was rewarded with a big double up through Danny Chevalier.

Chevalier opened to 2,800 from under the gun with K♠K♣ before Taylor moved all in next to speak for 24,100 with A♥Q♠. Chevalier made the call and the cards were on their backs. Taylor would need help to stay alive and he got it when the board appeared 8♠A♠J♥Q♣6♣. Taylor doubles to 50,000 with Chevalier down to 65,000.

5:10pm: Boxell hangs on

Leo Boxell is using all of his nine lives today as he's survived another all-in clash to double up. Boxell got his chips in good with A♦8♠ on a 8♥9♦A♥K♦ board as Michael Guzzardi made the call with A♣T♣.

Guzzardi would need to spike another river, but it wasn't to be, as the 8♦ improved Boxell to a full house for the double up. Boxell is up to 25,000.

4:55pm: Brown out

Adam Brown is the latest to be eliminated from the ANZPT Darwin Main Event at the hands of Tim Wade-McDonald.

Brown moved his last 15,000 or so chips in preflop from the small blind with K♦3♠ with Wade-McDonald making the call in the big blind with a dominant K♥Q♣.

The board ran out 5♥A♦7♠J♠9♣ to jump Wade-McDonald to 90,000 in chips. After winning his way into this event through an online league on PokerStars, Brown departs just short of the cash.


Tim Wade-McDonald is motoring along nicely here in Darwin

4:50pm: Play resumes

There are just 20 players remaining as we're steamrolling our way through today. They're back in their seats and ready to play one more level until we wrap things up for the day.
