The bracelet has arrived. Shuffle up and deal! Reminder: In heads-up play, the button has the small blind and acts first before the flop.

The players are ready to go, but everyone is waiting for the bracelet to arrive. Robert Mizrachi has a 2.74-to-1 chip lead over Rene Mouritsen, but that's a smaller lead than it sounds like, as anything can happen in pot-limit Omaha. There are 55 minutes and 37 seconds left in Level 23, with blinds at 80,000-160,000. If the players can somehow survive that long, the blinds would then increase to 100,000-200,000. It's hard to imagine it lasting very long at those blinds.
