Chip leader Sotirios Koutoupas opened under the gun plus one to 80,000 a min raise. Koutoupas had been involved in several pots since the start of the 9 handed situation and he got a call from another active player; Harry Law.
Law, seated under the gun plus two, wasn't the one ending up being the most involved though. After Law called it was Florian Ribouchon shoving all in from the cutoff for 620,000 (almost 16 big blinds). Koutoupas made the call and after Law folded we had what could be the last showdown of the day.
Ribouchon had in front of him and needed to look for improvement as Koutoupas tabled .
No help for the Frenchman on a board and he exited in 9th place. He takes home €50,530. With that the final eight players are done for the day, they will return tomorrow to play the final table.
We'll be back shortly with an end of day recap and the official chip counts.
