The dinner break is approaching, as just 10 minutes remain in Level 14. Over at Shaun Deeb's table, conversation during the lull between hands turned to discussing whether or not play will continue if the bubble hasn't burst and the break arrives.
"A lot of people are hungry," chimed Dan Smith.
Deeb explained that it is up to the tournament director, but they'll likely go eat as many players will have made plans to dine at a specific time.
"The person who bubbles, he will have a good meal, then," said Freddy Deeb. "Right," said Shaun. "At least he'll get to eat still having hope."
