Iakov Onuchin Eliminated in 10th Place ($41,788)

Iakov Onuchin - 10th place
Iakov Onuchin - 10th place

Randolph Lanosga opened for 90,000 from under-the-gun and action folded around to Iakov Onuchin in the cutoff seat, who pushed all in for about 550,000. It was folded back to Lanosga, who thought it over and announced, "Call," to put Lanosga at risk.

Lanosga: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Iakov: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}

Iakov was in excellent shape to double going to the flop, which came {5-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{3-Hearts}. Lanosga picked up outs with a pair of queens, but was still well behind. The {6-Diamonds} turn changed nothing, however, a {J-Spades} fell on the river - giving Lanosga two-pair and sending an unlucky Onuchin to the rail.

Joshua Prager Eliminated in 11th Place ($41,788)

Shamus

The table folded around to Joshua Prager in the small blind who looked down at his stack of almost 400,000, checked his cards, and declared he was all in. Jonathan Hilton called instantly.

Prager turned over {K-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, and gave a little half-smile as he saw what Hilton had woken up with — {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}. The {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop only worsened the situation for Prager, and the {J-Spades} turn made the {5-Clubs} river no matter.

"Well played, sir," cracked Daniel Eichhorn afterwards. "That's exactly how I would've played it."

The remaining 10 players are now redrawing for seats around a single table.

Hieu Nguyen Eliminated in 12th Place ($41,788)

Hieu Nguyen - 12th place
Hieu Nguyen - 12th place

It folded around to Hieu Nguyen in the small blind who completed, then Dominik Nitsche put in a raise from the big blind which Nguyen called.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}, and Nguyen only paused a beat before declaring he was pushing his short stack all in. Nitsche took even less time to call, tabling {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} for top set. Nguyen flipped over {J-Spades}{10-Hearts} for an open-ended straight draw. The turn was the {6-Hearts} and river the {K-Diamonds}, and Nguyen is out.

"How could you call that?" joked Daniel Eichhorn afterwards to Nitsche. "All you have is a set and he has a straight draw… you're at risk!"

Nitsche chuckled in response. He has reason to smile, as that hand pushes him up over the 3 million-chip mark, enabling him to increase his lead with 11 left.

Prager Folds To Comel's Pressure

OHairDJ

Sebastien Comel opened to 60,000 from under-the-gun and action folded around to Joshua Prager - who three-bet to 205,000. Undeterred, Comel slid his entire stack into the middle for an all-in bet for over a million and Prager quickly mucked.

Comel is sitting on 1.6 million at the moment, while Prager has slipped to 620,000.

Yoav Tenenbaum Eliminated in 14th Place ($32,682)

Yoav Tenenbaum

Yoav Tanenbaum opened for 80,000 from early position and he found one caller in Dominik Nitsche in the cutoff seat.

The flop came {7-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Tanenbaum c-bet for 100,000. Nitsche made the call.

The {Q-Diamonds} fell on the turn and, undeterred, Tenenbaum fired again - this time for 250,000. Nitsche again called.

When the {5-Diamonds} landed on the river, Tenenbaum slowed down and checked - prompting an all-in bet from Nitsche for just over one million. Tenenbaum quickly called off his remaining 850,000 and Nitsche tabled {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a set of sevens. Tenenbaum turned over {A-}{K-} for an inferior top pair, which caused Nitsche to shout, "Yes!" in celebration as he knew he had eliminated Tanenbaum.

Nitsche is up to 1.9 million after that one.

Onuchin: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}

For the Nguyen

Shamus

It's been a tough level for Hieu Nguyen, although he finally had something go his way just as the hour is coming to an end.

After pushing his short stack all in from middle position with {A-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, Nguyen got called by James Taylor in the big blind with {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. The board ran out {A-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, giving Nguyen a double and knocking Taylor down to short-stacked status.
