Over on one of the outer tables there was a mystery involving a 25,000-chip which remained unsolved.
Play in the tournament was halted for five minutes and the clock was paused while the tournament director looked into this situation. The TV crew had been filming the previous hand and the footage was played back. There was no clear shot of the well and the tournament director ruled that this chip would be taking out of play because it could not be determined who it belonged to.
Play continues with 25,000 chips less in the tournament.
