Alessio Isaia: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}
Recep Ademir: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

Aydemir was in trouble but found the miracle chop pot thanks to the {8-Diamonds} turn and {j-Hearts} river.

Pamukcu Eliminated by Kinzhalov

zedmaster84 • Level 7: 900-1,800, 1,800 ante

Several players were eliminated and among them was also Hakan Pamukcu. The latter jammed for the second time and then got it in for what appeared to be 43,000. Aleksandr Kinzhalov called in the big blind and the table was somewhat stunned when the cards were revealed.

Hakan Pamukcu: {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Aleksandr Kinzhalov: {q-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

The board ran out {10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{j-Clubs} and Pamukcu was eliminated. Kinzhalov tried to explain that he didn't see the yellow T-25,000 chip and thus had called.

A classic flip unfolded between a short-stacked Marat Shafigullin and David Boyaciyan with the former at risk.

Marat Shafigullin: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
David Boyaciyan: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The {q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{4-Spades} runout improved Boyaciyan to a pair of kings and he claimed the chips of his table neighbor.

Labaky Eliminated by Ozdilaver

zedmaster84 • Level 7: 900-1,800, 1,800 ante

Antoine Labaky got his stack of around 47,000 in before the flop and was in prime shape for a double up when facing John Ozdilaver.

Antoine Labaky: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
John Ozdilaver: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

The {j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} runout provided an unlikely straight and Labaky was eliminated.

Niko Koop

Picking up the action on the {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop, Recep Aydemir bet 5,000 on the button and Musa Barindik called in the big blind. Niko Koop then raised to 22,000 and Aydemir eventually folded. Barindik moved all-in and Koop called all-in for 80,400.

Aydemir asked for a count on Barindik's stack, which was 131,600 total, and opted to fold.

Niko Koop: {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Musa Barindik: {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

"I thought you had eight nine of diamonds," Koop said and Barindik predicted the eight of diamonds to appear. That was not the case on the {k-Hearts} turn and {a-Diamonds} river but he got there regardless with the flush.

Michalak Among the Big Stacks

zedmaster84 • Level 6: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

A reraise to 11,000 was in front of Alessio Isaia in an early position and Jakub Michalak then four-bet to 30,000 out of the big blind. Isaia carefully counted his stack and then opted to fold.

One hand later, Mantas Nanartavicius raised to 3,500 and earned three callers including Roland Rokita, Michalak and the big blind. They headed to the {k-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop and Nanartavicius bet 12,000 to claim the pot without resostance.

Michalak appears to be among the biggest stacks, only Piotr Sowinski to his right has even more chips at his disposal.
