The average chipstack at the minute is 11,875,000, but our current chipleaders have that well covered:

Big Flip

That face you make when you hold with queens
That face you make when you hold with queens

Dillon Scanlan was busy scanning the room for shortstacks while perched on the edge of his chair as he was dealt into the next hand. He peeled his cards, centred himself, and announced "all-in" while pushing his stack over the line for the dealer to count. After revealing the amount to call was 8,800,000, Richard King called on the button and the blinds got out of the way.

King confidently showed {a-Spades}{k-Spades}, while Scanlan cautiously rolled over his {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}, clearly aware of how cursed pocket queens are in this building. The dealer put an {a-Clubs} in the window, followed by a {k-Clubs}, but hiding underneath at the end of the spread was the {q-Clubs}! What a flop! Then turn came a {7-Clubs} offering chop outs, but the river bricked the {8-Diamonds} and 19,000,000 chips was shipped Scanlan's way. That hasn't done much damage to King's massive stack, though, as he is still the chipleader with 19 players left.

Charlie Godwin eliminated in 23rd place (£4,500)

Charlie Godwin grinded for her tournament life on Day 3 of the Grand Prix UK Main Event, but it was not to be

Charlie Godwin has just been eliminated in 23rd place after a horrible run-out effectively ended her hopes.
The key blow to Godwin’s stack took place during a blind on blind confrontation with Ronan Sweeney when Godwin set her opponent all in, after the action folded to her in the small blind.

After some thought Sweeney called off his remaining 3.7m chips holding {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, but Godwin had him pipped by one with her {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

A flop of {J-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} didn’t change anything and a chop looked unlikely.

The {K-Hearts} turn didn’t bring any split pot opportunities but the {8-Hearts} river allowed Sweeney to scoop the pot.

Godwin would get her remaining three big blinds in with {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} but find herself in rough shape versus the {A-Spades}{J-Spades} held by Dillon Scanlan.

Despite turning a flush draw on the {5-Clubs}{7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} board the {3-Clubs} river brought no salvation for Godwin. Worse still was that just one more place up the ladder would have meant an extra £1,000, with everyone now guaranteed £5,500 instead of the £4,500 Godwin takes home.

Spiked Out on the River

Adam Hilton wakes up with aces

Dusk Till Dawn regular Adam Hilton opened this one from under the gun to 625,000, with action folding to David Cohen in the cutoff who shoved for his remaining 4,100,000. The blinds got out of the way, before Hilton immediately shovelled his stack of pink 500k-value chips over the line and tabled {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}. Cohen whinced and rolled over his {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}, his fate now in the hands of Max the dealer.

As the flop was turned over, the {7-Spades} showed up in the window, along with the {8-Diamonds} and {8-Clubs} to give Cohen the miracle he needed.

"Ace!" pleaded Hilton, as the {3-Clubs} rolled off on the turn. "ACE!" he repeated, this time with the {a-Spades} showing up on the river.

That was David Cohen's last hand, as he finished 24th for £4,500 and a £2,200 UKPC seat.

Parker Flipped Out

MrPaulSeaton • Level 33: 150,000-300,000, 30,000 ante

After Declan Connolly left us in 27th place, James Parker was quickly knocked out in 26th place.

After short stack James Parker open-shoved his remaining 1.4m he found himself flipping after Timothy Rowland made the call.

Parker, holding {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} needed to hold against the {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} of Rowland.

The {4-Spades}{10-Spades}{A-Diamonds} flop put Parker at risk of elimination, and he was unable to hit the two outer when the {10-Diamonds} turn and {2-Diamonds} river completed the board.

Dillon Holds On

Dillon Scanlan gets out of another scrape
Dillon Scanlan gets out of another scrape

With action folded all the way around to the button, Dillon Scanlan had an almost automatic all-in for his last 3,600,000. Antonis Poulengeris had an equally automatic call from the small blind, with Gavin Manley in the big blind quickly getting out of the way. It was a standard button verus blind match-up, with Scalan's {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} trailing to Poulengeris' {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}.

In true Scanlan fashion, the required {9-Clubs} appeared in the window, with the rest of the {4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop. Another {9-Hearts} on the turn meant Poulengeris was drawing dead, although the dealer still found an {a-Hearts} for good measure. Scanlan survives another all-in from behind, and drags in a decent pot.

Mahamed Muse Busted by Adam Maxwell

Adam Maxwell has sent Mahamed Muse to the rail in 28th place.

Action began with Muse opening in late position to 700,000. Next to act, Maxwell responded with a three-bet, moving 1.8m into the middle.

With the action back on Muse, he decided to move all-in for 6.5m, with Maxwell quickly calling.

With the hands on their backs, Muse would have to win a race to remain in but his {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} fell behind Maxwell’s {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} on the {Q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop and things stayed that way on the {9-Diamonds} turn and {2-Spades} river, sending Muse to the rail.
