We join the action on the flop of and three players in the pot (Shawn Buchanan SB, Alexander Salabaschew UTG+1 and Martin Czuczor HJ). Buchanan checked and Salabaschew bet 5,500 before Czuczor raised to 16,300. Buchanan went into deep thought mode before making the call as did Salabaschew. The turn was the and Buchanan checked to Salabaschew who now bet 50,000. Czuczor pulled a funny face before folding and Buchanan went deep into the tank. After a period of about five minutes Buchanan moved all-in for a little over 50,000 and Salabaschew called.
The river bricked off, Buchanan was eliminated and Salabaschew took the chip lead.
Also eliminated just prior to Buchanan were Todd Terry (33rd), Edmilson Oliveira (32nd), Michael Friedrich (31st), Laurent Sanchez (30th) and Sylvain Mazza (28th).
