What a way to go into dinner break!

Just before the scheduled hour-and-a-half break at the World Series ogf Poker main event, Richard Lee ended up all in against massive chip leader Jamie Gold with J-J, but found himself dominated when Gold turned over Q-Q. The crowd seemed to desperately want a jack to keep Lee, the quiet, humble player from San Antonio, in the contest, but it wouldn't happen.

It was by far the biggest display of emotion from the audience so far, but no matter how many people were pulling for Lee, he ended up in sixth place, which was good for $2,803,851.

In a post-match interview, Lee expressed his love for his home town, and said he wished he could've won it for San Antonio.

With the win, Gold increased his chip lead to more than $51 million. Paul Wasicka is the nearest competitor to him with $14.5 million, and Allen Cunningham, who can't seem to win any kind of race, is third with $13.6 million.

Players return from break at 10:30 p.m.
