Friendly River for Kalfon

Shamus • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Having finally gotten to his seat after the dinner break, James Mitchell continued to look for ways to improve his short stack by open-raising all in for 765,000 (a little over 12 big blinds). Franck Kalfon then called all in from the button for for 465,000, and the blinds let their hands go.

Mitchell had {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Kalfon {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and when the flop came {6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades} Mitchell had taken the lead, leaving Kalfon hoping for a saving seven or a nine for a straight. The turn brought the {3-Clubs}, and Kalfon was down to his last card.

Then came the river... the {7-Hearts}! A short burst of noise came from the Kalfon's supporters on the rail as the Frenchman doubled up to survive.

Homer • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante
Pascal Aznar - 13th place
Pascal Aznar - 13th place

Short-stacked Pascal Aznar made his stand when he moved in over the top of a Walid Bou Habib raise only to be snap-called.

Aznar: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Habib: {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

The flop came {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Hearts} "I had 6-3," quipped Jeffrey Hakim, before the {3-Diamonds} on the turn gave Habib a full house. Aznar couldn't hit either hole card on the {Q-Hearts} river and he departed leaving 12 players left.

Mitchell Finishes Dinner

Homer • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

"Somebody told me the dinner break was 75 minutes," claimed James Mitchell as he sat down at the feature table, promptly moving all in from the button in the first hand he could play.

Cymbaluk Shoves, Collects

Shamus • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

On the six-handed outer table, [Removed:4] picked up a couple of pots early after play resumed, then a hand arose in which Glen Cymbaluk opened for 125,000 from under the gun and got three callers in Cyril Andre (button), [Removed:4] (small blind), and Robert Romeo (big blind), creating a pot of 530,000.

The flop came {8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{A-Spades}, and when checked to Cymbaluk pushed all in with his stack of about 1.8 million, and his three opponents quickly stepped aside.

Missing Mitchell Provides Dynamic

Homer • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Well, the case of the missing Englishman has livened things up on the feature table as everyone has gotten more aggressive given the extra dead money.

Jeffrey Hakim opened to 120,000 but folded when Joseph El Khoury reraised behind him. Then in the very next hand, Noel Gaens opened to 120,000 and folded when Walid Bou Habib did exactly the same thing.

Out to Lunch

Homer • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

If you know James Mitchell, you probably want to mention to him the fact we've restarted since he's not here. He's already missed his big blind.
