The next open raise to 125,000 by Brian Delaney in the cutoff then saw Arthur Conan shove for 350,000 on the button. Mathieu Di Meglio in the big blind moved all-in over the top and Delaney folded.
Mathieu Di Meglio:
Conan had the best of it going into the showdown but Di Meglio flopped the nut flush draw on . Nothing changed with the turn and it was then the on the river that sealed Conan's fate in 14th place for €59,300.
Brian Delaney raised to 125,000 on the button and was called by Johan Schultz-Pedersen in the big blind. The Dane opted to check-call the flop for 100,000 and the turn for 285,000. Both checked the on the river for Schultz-Pedersen to show the for a flopped pair of tens.
Razvan Belea eyeballed the stack of Konstantin Held when it had folded to him in the big blind and then pushed all-in when the German revealed he held ten big blinds behind.
Held grasped his time banks and started using them with ten in total at his disposal on a pay jump. As he glanced over to the live-streamed feature table, he started some banter.
"I want to use this time to give you an important message," he commenced before cracking a smile. Among other persons, he thanked his seventh grade biology teacher and then looked over at the feature table again when the sixth time bank was used.
"What is going on there?" he asked and Mehdi Chaoui replied back "just call it off man" to which Held added "I will, in twenty seconds" which he then indeed did.
The board ran out and Held doubled for 645,000. "Sorry for all the drama," he apologised in table chat.
One hand later, Mathieu Di Meglio raised to 130,000 in the cutoff and Belea called on the button. Held three-bet to 1,325,000 with one T-25,000 chip behind and Di Meglio asked for an exact amount on the raise before letting go, Belea also quickly folded as well.
Fabrice Bigot raised to 120,000 with in late position before Denzel Spekman three-bet to 300,000 with on the button. Saar Wilf used a time bank with in the small blind and then he shoved for 1,325,000. That was too much for Bigot and Spekman so they folded and gave Wilf the pot.
Niklas Astedt raised to 125,000 with from the cutoff and Fabrice Bigot three-bet to 325,000 from the button with . The blinds got out of the way and Astedt gave it a moment of thought before he shoved for over 1,800,000. Bigot quickly tossed his hand in the muck to give up the pot.
Razvan Belea increased his stack with a flop bet win against Henri Kasper and so did Johan Schultz-Pedersen. Fast forward one further hand, table short stack Konstantin Held raised to 190,000 in the cutoff with 5,000 behind.
Kasper three-bet to 350,000 on the button and Brian Delaney then four-bet to 900,000 in the small blind. It folded back to Held, who inquired with the floor about using time bank extensions before he tossed in the last chip. Kasper shrugged and sent his cards into the muck.
The isolation of Delaney saved Held as the board missed both players. "Would you have won?" Kasper was asked and he nodded.
Following the elimination of Sven Stok, Brian Delaney was moved to the outer table and got immediately involved in a huge hand that's seen him double up, leaving Day 3 chip leader Konstantin Held on fumes.
Delaney raised to 125,000 from early position and was called by Held in the big blind.
On the flop, Held checked to Delaney who bet 110,000. Held called to see the fall on the flop.
The German now led out for 180,000 but got raised to 540,000 by his American counterpart. Held called with a final card to come in the already huge pot.
That final card was the on the river and Held checked. Delaney moved all in for 1,580,000, which was slightly less than what was in Held's stack.
Held called and the second massive cooler of the day at the outer table was revealed.
Held showed for trip deuces, but Delaney turned over for a full house of tens full of deuces, leaving Held with just over two big blinds.
