Bastian Fischer moved all in for 211,000 after Michael Marckx had opened the action with a raise to 25,000. Behind Fischer, Thomas Muehloecker (61,000) in the small blind as well as Kao Saechao (34,000, blind without seeing his cards) in the big blind called all in for less. Marckx folded and we had a three-way showdown.

Fischer: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Muehloecker: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Saechao: {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

"King please," requested Saechao and then changed his mind into diamonds after the {4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} flop fell. Neither the {2-Spades} turn nor the {4-Hearts} river changed the outcome of the hand and Fischer knocked out two opponents.

Ray Henson raised from early position and a betting war broke out against Seyed Fazeli in the small blind with the latter at risk for what looked like 300,000 chips. Henson looked him up and was way ahead.

Henson: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Fazeli: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}

The board ran out {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and Henson seems to be the clear chip leader after this big pot.

Matthew Frampton Eliminated in 25th Place ($11,544)

Justin Schwartz opened for 22,000 and Matthew Frampton moved all in for 81,000. Daniel Riley made the call and Schwartz said he was relieved not to have to make a decision and folded his hand.

Frampton had {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades} and was racing against the {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} of Riley.

The flop {9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} changed the fortunes of the hand but the turn {7-Spades} changed it back and the river {10-Hearts} sealed Frampton’s exit from the tournament.

Jack Ward moved all in and was called by Robert Merulla.

Ward had a decent {a-Hearts}{j-Spades} but had walked into the {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} of Merulla.

Ward was looking for an ace but the cards {10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} did not deliver and he was out.

Richard Milne opened the action with a raise from the button and Hans Christer Laudius moved all in from one seat over for 100,000. The player in the big blind folded and Milne called with {K-}{Q-}.

Laudius was ahead preflop with pocket eights but a king on the river sent him to the rail.

Brazil Rail Silenced

zedmaster84 • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Carlos Hey was all in for about 10 big blinds and got called by Daniel Riley on the button. The Brazil rail cheered heavily when the cards were turned over.

Riley: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Hey: {K-Hearts}{5-Spades}

You can imagine how the Brazilians exploded after the {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} flop as their countryman improved. It got louder after the {3-Hearts} turn but suddenly everyone fell silent once the {A-Hearts} river completed the board.

The tournament is now down to the last three tables and we will be back shortly with the redraw.

Hart Stopped

Yardley • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Shaun Hart had been crippled in a pot against Richard Milne not long before and he got the last of it in not long after with {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} against {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}.

It was a bad spot and it didn’t get any better as the board ran out {7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Clubs}.

Egan's Aces Hold Up

zedmaster84 • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Brian Altman raised from early position and Andrew Egan flat-called from the button, both players in the blinds folded. On the {6-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Spades} flop, Altman check-raised all in for 150,000 and Egan called to turn over {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}.

Altman was alive with {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} but could not improve anymore on the {3-Hearts} turn and {7-Clubs} river.
