Mark Radoja's run has come to an end. The last bracelet winner from this summer just lost his remaining chips and was far from happy about it. Radoja raised to 10,500 and Anton Wigg and Adrien Allain both called.
The flop brought out and Allain checked from the big blind. Radoja bet 10,500, Wigg called and Allain thought about it for a while before shoving all-in for 94,500. Radoja pondered for a good minute before he announced call. Wigg shook his head and folded claiming he had .
The turn was the and the river the missing Radoja leaving him with only 11,000 chips. The very next hand he shoved pre flop and Allain decided to call from the small blind.
The board ran out giving Allain two pair and the pot. Radoja looked very disappointed and left the room, we're down to 15!
Freddy Deeb has been steadily grinding away but his stack just got dented pretty badly. After a pre flop raising war Deeb got Krakow's 104,000 chips in the middle which left him with only 85,000 chips. This was the showdown that followed.
The board ran out and that gave Krakow a big double up to 210,000 chips. Deeb is among the shorter stack and will be looking for a double up in the next level.
Robert Finlay just clashed with Phil Hellmuth and after the hand was over, Finlay looked at me and said, "write about me outplaying the man." So here you are Mr Finlay - your five-minutes of fame!
Finlay made up the small change from the small blind and Hellmuth added 6,000 more to the pot and Finlay snap-called. The flop was and both players quickly checked. The turn was the and Finlay came out betting for 10,000 and Hellmuth nearly bit his hand off. The final card was the and no sooner had it landed on the table, Finlay had moved all-in. Hellmuth leapt to his feet.
"Come on! Come on!" He said before composing himself. "It's not hard to trap an English guy who plays nine-three off-suit," Said Hellmuth referring to an earlier hand between the pair.
Hellmuth folded his hand and Finlay flashed for the bluff.
Marvin Rettenmaier has just been eliminated against Bruno Benveniste and maybe a hand, a few orbits earlier, may have sown the seed for the Germans demise?
In the earlier hand Benveniste raised to 5,000 from the button and Rettenmaier three-bet to 15,000 in the big blind. Benveniste made his decision simple by moving all-in and Rettenmaier mucked his hand.
In the elimination hand, a few orbits later, Benveniste raised on the button again but this time Rettenmaier moved all-in and Benveniste called.
Rettenmaier received no help from the poker Gods and he was eliminated in 17th place for €9,936
