However, he rallied during his final hour of play, to end the day with his $300k profit. Cates also won the day's second biggest pot:

Playing heads-up against Gus Hansen in the morning games, jungleman12 hits a dream flop, making bottom set with the nut flush draw. He makes the flush on the turn and is able to extract maxium value as Hansen check calls bets on the turn and river - $197.8k pot

Starting at around 6am, Luneau suffered during the first few hours, at one point touching on -$150k. It was a two hour upswing between 9.30-11.30 which cemeted Luneau's final score for the day.

Gus Hansen couldn't continue his mini-upswing and ended as the day's biggest loser with a $226k loss. However, this wasn't a terrible result for Hansen, who, at one stage during the day was down over $550k. Hansen was helped in his mini-recovery by winning the biggest pot of the month:
