Michal Mrakes doubled Tarek Sleiman when his flopped two pair with {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} could not hold up against the {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs} of Sleiman. They got it in after the {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop, the {A-Spades} turn and {Q-Hearts} river improved Sleiman to the nut straight.

Guillaume Diaz then doubled Hael Al Labani and Norbert Burkhard in quick succession to drop some of his early profit.

Burkhard ended up all in and at risk on the {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop and tabled the {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts} for a wrap and flush draw. Diaz had the {K-Spades}{X-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and the {9-Spades} turn and {7-Spades} river gave Burkhard a straight.

Shortly after, Roland Israelashvili was eliminated on a different table to reduce the field to the last 39 hopefuls.
