Show One, Show All Sergio

Nivel 8 : 300-600, 75 ante

Ihar Soika was facing a 10,300 bet from rising Spanish star Sergio Aido on a board of {10-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{7-Hearts}. It had been checked on the flop and Soika was deep in the tank. Too deep for some players it seemed as time was called and the floor gave him the full countdown. Well, almost full as he folded with one second to spare. Aido flashed him his cards and after some protest had to show the table his {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}.

Three Barrels Does the Job

Nivel 8 : 300-600, 75 ante

Olof Haglund opened the hijack to 1,400 and just Yoni Journo in the big blind made the call.

Haglund fired three bullets at his French opponent. 1,900 on the {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop, 4,500 on the {9-Hearts} turn and 9,000 on the {5-Clubs} river. Journo check called the flop and turn but eventually folded the river after some heavy thinking.

Haglund is now nearing the 100,000 mark with little less than an hour of play left for the day.

Hoefer at the Double

Nivel 8 : 300-600, 75 ante

Paul Hoefer has got his head above water after doubling up with pocket aces. He was all-in pre-flop for 22,000 with {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} and looking to hold against Omar Idder's {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}. The {7-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{K-Clubs} board ensured he did just that. So he's up to roughly 47,000 whilst Idder slips to 4,000.

From under-the-gun Alex Goulder made it 1,200 to play, it folded to Christopher Frank on the button and the German raised to 3,600. Back on Goulder he smooth called and the flop came {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}, Goulder checked, Frank bet 4,000 and Goulder called his bet.

The {2-Clubs} fell on the turn and the pattern repeated itself, this time Goulder check-called a bet of 7,900. The {4-Clubs} completed a backdoor flush draw and both players were happy to check it down, Goulder showed {A-Spades}{K-Spades} to claim the pot. He climbs to roughly 70,000.

We're now into the last level of the day and Chris Day is the current chip leader. The Brit has 195,000 after winning a 100k pot against an unknown opponent. "There was an open to 1,000, I made it 2,600 to go with queens, the guy to my left (points to empty seat) made it 7,100, I raised to 17,700 and he moved in for 48,000 with ace-king, I called and queens held," he told PokerNews.
