Stuart McNally has just took the biggest pot of the tournament so far. A pot worth around 200,000 and makes him the chip leader with around 250,000!!
On an Ace high board with a Jack on, Bernard Litman gets it all in and is called by McNally who holds a set of Jacks. Bernard tables Ace-King which is no good as he heads out of the tournament.
With 75 minutes left to play today Stuart McNally holds a strong chip lead.
