Wheeler, Kabrhel Out

mnuwwarah • Level 8: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

The pot after Jason Wheeler busted to Sergio Aido saw Jean-Norel Thorel call the shove of Martin Kabrhel for just 39,500. Kabrhel had sixes and Thorel {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and the race went to Thorel as three hearts hit the flop and another arrived on the turn.

Petrangelo Busts a Second Time; Ruzicka Takes from Leonard

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Nick Petrangelo ran out of chips for the second time after buying back in and getting the exact same seat. His second stack vanished with pocket eights against the pocket queens of Patrick Leonard.

Leonard then took on Vojtech Ruzicka when the latter opened to 12,000 and picked up a call by Leonard from one seat over. Juha Helppi also called in the big blind and the trio saw a flop of {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Action checked to Ruzicka, who bet 25,000. Only Leonard called and the {6-Clubs} then appeared on the turn.

Ruzicka fired 40,500 and Leonard folded.

Tsoukernik Can't Beat Carrel

mnuwwarah • Level 8: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Charlie Carrel bet 36,000 in position against Leon Tsoukernik on a completed board of {6-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. Tsoukernik fired in a check-raise to 117,000 and Carrel was left a bit dismayed.

"I rivered something," he said with a sigh, stretching his arms. "I'm not that confident, though."

After another minute or so, Carrel did drop in a call, and his {a-}{j-} was good.

Nariman Yaghmai Eliminated

Webjoker • Level 8: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Down to his last 8,000, Nariman Yaghmai pushed all in from the cutoff. One seat over sat Mikita Badziakouski and he raised to 13,000 from the button. Sam Greenwood thought about it for a bit from the big blind but eventually folded.

Mikita Badziakouski: {A-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Nariman Yaghmai: {Q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

The board ran out {2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} and Yaghmai made his exit.

Haxton Finds Kings to Double

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 10,000 and Isaac Haxton three-bet to 37,000 out of the small blind. Thorel moved all in and Haxton called. Both players turned over pocket pairs and Thorel immediately sighed, as he had the worse hand in showdown.

Isaac Haxton: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Jean-Noel Thorel: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

The board came {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Haxton doubled up with a flush for 225,000 to take a decent chunk of Thorel's stack.

The €600 Bottle of Whisky

Webjoker • Level 7: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

We missed it, but Charlie Carrel busted Leon Tsoukernik not too long ago and promised to buy him a drink to make up for it. Wouldn't you know it, Leon Tsoukernik bought back into the tournament, drew the exact same seat again right next to Carrel, and took his British neighbor up on his offer of a free drink.

But Tsoukernik didn't just buy a regular soft drink from the bar menu, he ordered a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

While he was in a hand (he would turn a set of eights and win a decent pot of Anthony Zinno), the bottle was brought to the table by the staff. While they unboxed the bottle and prepared two glasses, they slid the bill to Tsoukernik.

The King's Casino Rozvadov owner, still busy winning Zinno's chips, glanced at the bill and told Carrel it was €600. Carrel's jaw dropped a little, but, as a man of his word, reached for his wallet and started pulling out wads of cash. Tsoukernik, now betting 40,000 against Zinno, told Carrel to put back his money and eventually paid for the bottle himself. Not before he made Carrel promise they would go party one night, though, and the latter would presumably have to take care of that bill.

Kabrhel and Wheeler Nursing Short Stacks

zedmaster84 • Level 7: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

On the button, Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 9,000 and Martin Kabrhel called in the small blind. On the {A-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop, both players checked. Kabrhel bet 10,500 on the {10-Clubs} turn and Thorel called before the {3-Diamonds} on the river triggered a bet of 16,000 by Kabrhel and a fold by Thorel.

One hand later, Jason Wheeler raised to 9,000 and Thorel called on the cutoff. On the {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop, Wheeler bet 14,000 and Thorel called before the American then checked the {8-Spades} turn. Thorel bet 35,000 and that won the pot without showdown.

Yan Calls it Off to Double

mnuwwarah • Level 7: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

We found [Removed:17] facing an all-in shove from small blind Mikita Badziakouski on a board of {5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Badziakouski had put Yan to the test for his remaining 146,500 with the pot already containing about 100,000. After forcefully shuffling chips for a moment, Yan called.

Yan: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Badziakouski: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Yan was in a great spot and held through the {8-Clubs} turn and {a-Spades} river.

Meanwhile, Steffen Sontheimer reentered and Dario Sammartino lost his remaining chips.
