There was a rain delay at the World Series of Poker.
The World Series of Poker’s Main Event — No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em — is currently taking place at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, and heavy rain in the area has caused a leak in the corner of one room being used for the event, pausing play briefly on Monday night.
The event takes place indoors.
In an announcement on Monday night, the World Series of Poker said:
With the heavy storm outside, water has leaked into a corner of the Brasilia Ballroom where playing tables were located. As a result, 23 tables are being relocated after dinner to the Amazon Room.
If you’re seated in Brasilia at tables 1-19, 24, 31, 38, or 39, your table will be in Amazon after dinner. These rerouted tables are located near the center of the room where the orange and purple sections meet on the left hand side of room once you enter.
All other tables are unaffected and players should return to the seat they were in immediately preceding the dinner break.
Play will resume at the end of the dinner break as scheduled (approximately 8:18 p.m.).
And so as of the writing of this post, things were just about getting back underway.
As of 11:15 pm ET, Adil Kahn is currently the chip leader.
