Level 30 Sees Bust Out Bonaza
Just after "ferrostyle" busted in 23nd place, there were five quick fire eliminations which brought Day 2 to a close. Even though the tournament was due to play down to the final 18 players just 17 players remain as "fNx_R" felted "krendipoint" in 18th as they were still in a hand when Joao "Naza114" Vieira exited in 19th place.
After the exit of "ferrostyle", "huevo2000" was the next player to go and then Bjorn "bokkie87" Verbakel finished in 21st place after running their kings into the aces of "wnbgambler". Wigg then ousted "vic_xcite" next with his turned straight thwarting the Swedish player's over pair.

Aku "Aku1206" Joentausta three-bet in the big blind after "KisuKe_7" raised preflop and had a caller in "ferrostyle" in the small blind. "KisuKe_7" folded but the small blind called. The biggest pot of the tournament took place on the flop where there was a bet from Joentausta and then an all-in from "ferrostyle"
Aku "Aku1206" Joentausta:
Both players flopped a set, but not all hope was lost for "ferrostyle" who had a flush draw as well as one out to make quads. The turn reduced his chances of survival and the final nail in the coffin was the river.
Just 23 players remain and the bust outs have come quick and fast in Level 30 with 4 players eliminated in the first few minutes.
"plspaythxbye" tournament ended after going heads up to a flop of where he committed the last of his chips and was called by "ferrostyle".
The at risk player flopped top pair and a gut shot straight draw whilst "ferrostyle" flopped a set of threes. The turn gave some more outs to "plspaythxbye" but the river was not one of them.
Max "goodeh99" Silver three-bet preflop which was called by short stack "ken-PoLi" who raised first. Silver put his opponent all-in on the flop, "ken-PoLi" called and was ahead but was immediately drawing dead after Silver turned a wheel with the turn. The river was inconsequential and puts Silver in a healthy position.
"#Naktro91" picked up a few small pots following his recent big loss, then found a double through Andrey "Kroko-dill" Zaichenko.
"#Naktro91" jammed on flop after his opponent limp-called his raise preflop. Zaichenko called the all-in with bottom pair and an open-ended straight draw. "#Naktro91" survived as had two queens in his hand and the board ran out with the on the turn and on the river
