On a flop of {k-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{q-Spades}, Ricardo Caridade checked in the big blind to Andriy Lyubovetskiy on the button. Lyubovetskiy bet 50,000 and Caridade called.

The turn came with the {9-Hearts} and after Caridade checked again, Lyubovetskiy fired 235,000. Once more, Caridade called.

On the {4-Diamonds} river, Caridade checked a final time, and Lyubovetskiy bet 650,000, leaving himself less than 500,000 behind.

Caridade then check-raised Lyubovetskiy all-in, and the Day 2 chip leader frustratedly folded.

With the win, Caridade has passed Mike Watson for the chip lead.

Action was picked up with the board completed to read {4-Hearts}{5-Spades}{7-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}. From the big blind, Conor Beresford bet 120,000.

Niall Farrell took a time extension before raising to about 485,000 which was for everything he had except one 5,000 chip behind.

"I want to cry right now" said Beresford while tanking and using up two time bank cards. Eventually, he folded to send Farrell above one million in chips.

After dropping some chips doubling up Laurynas Levinskas, Ricardo Caridade just got a bunch back in a hand with Simon Lofberg.

Picking action up on a super coordinated turn-board of {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{10-Spades}, Lofberg led for 45,000 from the big blind and was called by Caridade in the cutoff.

The river brought the {2-Clubs}, and Lofberg sized up to 275,000. Caridade called and showed {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for a jack-igh straight.

Lofberg showed {3-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for a failed bluff attempt, which shipped a sizable portion of his stack across the table to Caridade.

Laurynas Levinskas moved all in from the button and found a customer in Ricardo Caridade in the small blind, who initially had him crushed.

Laurynas Levinskas: {9-Spades}{7-Spades}
Ricardo Caridade: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

But Levinskas then drilled every possible card in the deck to help him, first flopping a straight as the dealer spread {8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Then for good measure, he picked up the {a-Spades} and {4-Spades} to finish with a flush to double through Caridade.

Andrea Ricci:{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
