Gordon Gets Credit

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

There are two short stacks remaining in Jesus Gracia and Christopher Gordon, though the Spaniard has the unlucky constellation to sit next to chip leader Laurence Essa. Gordon opened to 100,000 from under the gun and was called by Essa on the button as well as Darren Mapley in the big blind.

On a flop of {7-Spades} {3-Diamonds} {6-Spades} the action was checked to Gordon and his continuation bet of 180,000 got through. Since the blinds get eaten every orbit though, it is still a fight for survival to the extreme.

Petrit Papushi Eliminated in 6th Place (£4,490)

Petrit Papushi - 6th place
Petrit Papushi - 6th place

Laurence Essa has been terrorizing the table and just four-bet shoved into the three-bet of short stack Jesus Gracia. The Spaniard had invested 350,000 and folded pocket fours.

Shortly after, Essa raised to 125,000 again and Petrit Papushi three-bet small to 250,000. Again Essa moved all in and Papushi tanked for more than one minute before making the call and turning over {K-Hearts} {K-Spades}. Essa was very surprised about that long consideration and flipped over {A-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}.

The board ran out {A-Spades} {J-Spades} {A-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} {10-Spades}, giving Essa a full house and yet another boost to his already massive stack. Papushi is heading to the payout desk to collect £4,490.

Lucio Pacifico - 7th place

The action folded around to Lucio Pacifico and he moved all in for 605,000 from the cutoff. Chip leader Laurence Essa asked for a count and then made the call whereas everyone else got out of the way.

Pacifico: {10-Hearts} {9-Spades}
Essa: {6-Spades} {6-Clubs}

The {10-Diamonds} {4-Clubs} {8-Clubs} flop would improve the hand of the Italian, but Essa made a runner runner flush thanks to the {Q-Clubs} turn and the {2-Clubs} river. Pacifico headed to the payout desk to collect £3,740 for his seventh place finish.

Essa Takes from Mapley

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Laurence Essa was the preflop aggressor and got called by Darren Mapley on the button as well as Petrit Papushi in the small blind. Papushi check-folded the {3-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {A-Diamonds} flop but Mapley stuck around and called the continuation bet of his opponent for 150,000. On the {Q-Hearts} turn, Essa fired 450,000 and was called before making it another 700,000 to go after the {3-Diamonds} river.

This time it proved to be too much for Mapley and he mucked his cards. It was the first bigger pot that the two chip leaders had played against each other on the final table.

Battle of the Short Stacks

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Lucio Pacifico defended his big blind against a raise of Jesus Gracia and then quickly folded to a continuation bet on a flop of {K-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {K-Spades}. Both players are now just over 11 big blinds and in the danger zone.

Gracia in Danger

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Jesus Gracia raised to 100,000 from the button and was called by Petrit Papushi in the big blind. On a flop of {5-Hearts} {A-Clubs} {9-Clubs} neither opponent made any move and the same story repeated with the {10-Hearts} turn. Papushi then bet 125,000 after the {5-Clubs} river and that got Gracia to muck his cards.

One hand later, Darren Mapley raised to 125,000 from the button and folded to the 750,000-shove of Christopher Gordon out of the big blind.

Two Shoves; No Call

zedmaster84 • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Christopher Gordon was all in and Kenny King just did so as well after some aggression ahead. None of the times triggered a call though and we continue with seven players.
