[Removed:35] Eliminated in 10th Place (€18,324)

ajlamers • Level 34: 120,000-240,000, 40,000 ante

Matous Skorepa opened to 500,000 from early position and [Removed:35] moved all in for 1,405,000 from the cutoff. Skorepa called and tabled {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} while Lucina showed {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}.

The flop came {q-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} with the queen right in the window. The {9-Hearts} landed on the turn giving Lucina a flush draw to go with his two overcards but the {8-Clubs} on the river sealed his fate. Lucina bubbled the official final table, being eliminated in 10th place.

The final nine players are now making their way to the feature table. PokerNews coverage will resume on a 30-minute delay in accordance with the live stream.

Ankucic in the Red Zone

zedmaster84 • Level 34: 120,000-240,000, 40,000 ante

Nebojsa Ankucic raised to 500,000 from under the gun and Florian Fuchs moved all in from two seats over. A pained Ankucic folded and dropped to around 1.3 million.

The next hand, Roman Motovsky raised to 500,000 and Pascal Pflock shoved from the small blind. Motovsky asked for a count and folded when Pflock's jam was deemed to be for 2,435,000.

Fuchs Rides the Waves to Double Up

ajlamers • Level 34: 120,000-240,000, 40,000 ante

Florian Fuchs shipped all in for 2,015,000 from middle position and Ivaylo Sivinov called from the big blind. Fuchs was out front with {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} and Sivinov held one overcard with {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

The flop came {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Sinvinov hit his one overcard to take the lead. Fuchs looked demoralized after falling behind but the {j-Diamonds} on the turn gave Fuchs a straight. The {6-Spades} completed the board and Fuchs scored a double up at the hand of Sivinov.

Ruben Garcia Blancas

Ivaylo Sivinov raised to 400,000 from under the gun and Ruben Garcia Blancas checked his stack in the big blind before calling with 1.9 million behind. The flop fell {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Garcia Blancas checked, Sivinov bet 550,000 and the Spaniard moved all in to pick up a quick call.

"Do you have a jack?" Garcia Blancas asked, but Sivinov shook his head before the cards were turned over.

Ruben Garcia Blancas: {K-Spades}{10-Spades}
Ivaylo Sivinov: {Q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

The {8-Spades} on the turn gave Sivinov an additional gutshot, and the {A-Diamonds} on the river improved him to a flush, eliminating Garcia Blancas in 11th place for €18,324.

All remaining ten hopefuls will now combine to the unofficial ten-handed final table and move to the feature table after losing one more player.

Cauchy Doubles Through Lucina

ajlamers • Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

The action was folded around to Gaetan Cauchy in the small blind who indeed found a spot to get the last of his 720,000 chips in the middle. [Removed:35] was in the big blind and made the call.

Cauchy was ahead with {k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} but Lucina had two live cards with {j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. The board ran out {7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Cauchy made two pair to double through Lucina.

Khalifa Flushes Sivinov

zedmaster84 • Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

While Matous Skorepa built his stack on the one table, Jonathan Khalifa just did so on the other to take a big lead over the rest of the field.

On the button, Khalifa raised to 450,000 and Ivaylo Sivinov called in the big blind. Both players checked the {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop and Sivinov bet the {K-Clubs} turn for 450,000, Khalifa called. After the {9-Diamonds} river, Sivinov checked and Khalifa bet one million.

After spending more than two minutes in the think tank, the clock was called on Sivinov and he called with a few seconds left. Khalifa turned over {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a flush and scooped a big pot.

Motovsky Leaves Cauchy on the Brink

ajlamers • Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Gaetan Cauchy opened to 450,000 from the cutoff and Roman Motovsky called from the big blind. The flop fell {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Motovsky check-called a bet of 325,000 from Cauchy.

The turn brought the {4-Clubs} and Motvsky checked again. Cauchy fired another 350,000 and Motovsky quickly called. The {9-Spades} hit the river and both players checked. Motovsky tabled {a-Clubs}{5-Spades} for two pair while Cauchy showed {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a smaller two pair.

Cauchy was left with around five big blinds and will be forced to get his chips in the middle shortly.
