A middle position player opened for 1,125, and Elio Fox called from the cutoff seat. The action on Jake Balsiger on the button, last year's Main Event third-place finisher paused about 15 seconds, then reraised to 3,000.
It folded back to the original raiser who responded by making it 4,825 to go, chasing Fox. Balsiger sat motionless for a full minute this time, then looking down at the 16,000 or so he had behind announced he was all in and his opponent immediately tossed away his hand.
Balsiger had slipped down to about half the stack with which he'd started the day, but as the end of Level 6 nears he's climbed back up to about 24,000.
