Dirk Van Luijk

We've reached the dinner break of Day 3, and Dick van Luijk is the new leader after amassing a gigantic stack in Level 13. The Belgian player has been among the leaders since early in the tournament, but he made his presence known in Level 13 by stacking a mountain of chips worth 1.1 million.

Van Luijk took the chip lead when he won a massive pot with a flush, and he added more near the end of the level to give him a sizable lead going to dinner.

The big story of Level 13 was the stacked table at the ESPN stage in the Amazon Room. Phil Ivey began the day there, and he was joined by bracelet winners Michael Mizrachi, Max Steinberg and Tony Gregg. Mizrachi and Ivey went to battle right away, and "The Grinder" then lost a big portion of his stack to Steinberg, who turned a club flush.

Among the notables who exited during the past level were Phil Hellmuth, Liv Boeree, Jason DeWitt , and Freddy Deeb.

The dinner break is 90 minutes long, so we'll see you back here at 8:25 p.m. local time.
