The clock has been paused with 15 minutes left in the level, and each table is going to play four hands before bagging and tagging the survivors' chips.
Marvin Rettenmaier was down to 55,000 chips after a cooler saw his match-up with Dmitrij Fadeev's .
The board ran out to help him make a flush to move up to 356,000 chips.
The German was eliminated soon after.
From under the gun, Dmitry Gromov raised to 7,200. In middle position, Toni Torsten Pettersson three-bet to 15,500 and then Ali Amelipour called from the cutoff seat. Action folded back to Gromov and he also called to bring the players to the flop. Gromov was first and checked. Pettersson fired 18,600 and Amelipour called. Gromov folded.
The turn was the to pair the board. Pettersson stayed aggressive and bet 28,500. Amelipour called and then the river completed the board with the . Pettersson didn't slow down there. He bet a tiny bit more than he did on the last street with a wager of 28,600. Amelipour called, but didn't look too happy in doing so.
Pettersson tabled the for a rivered two pair and Amelipour's face had disgust written all over it. He mucked his hand and dropped back to 110,000 in chips. Pettersson climbed to 535,000.
Sam El Sayed was the butt of Sam Razavi and Victor Ramdin's jibes earlier when they were offering him odds on a last longer bet with Ramdin. It was a good job , for El Sayed, that a price wasn't agreed as he's just fallen to the Team PokerStars Pro.
El Sayed raised to 7,100 from the button and called when Ramdin three-bet to 21,500 from the big blind. Ramdin continued for 20,000 on the flop and snap called when El Sayed moved all-in for about 60,000.
There was a delay in the dealing of the turn and river cards as the cameras were beckoned and this frustrated the Swiss as it was drawing more attention to his dire situation. They came and filmed the board running out . Ramdin is up to 240,000 chips now.
From middle position, Team PokerStars Pro Victor Ramdin raised to 6,700. Action folded to Sam Razavi in the big blind and he moved all in for 62,800. After a bit of a tank, Ramdin folded and dropped back to about 139,000 in chips.
We joined a three-way pot just as a flop was coming out on board. From the small blind, Tobias Reinkemeier led out with a bet of 11,500, and Dobromir Nikov made the call next door. David Sonelin was the one in position, and he stuck in a raise to 39,000 straight, drawing a quick fold from Reinkemeier. Nikov, though, was undeterred. He announced a reraise all in, committing his last 177,500 to the pot. After just a short pause, Sonelin made the call, and there was another big pot up for grabs.
Not exactly the battle of premium hands, but Sonelin had made quite a call with bottom pair. Nikov was drawing, essentially flipping for it all with two overs and the flush draw. Sonelin's massive call would go unrewarded, though, as the appeared right on the turn. Now it was he who was drawing from behind, and the river was no help.
After that big exchange, Sonelin has been reduced to about 315,000, while the double pulls Nikov up close to 400,000.
There were rumours afloat in the break about Chris Moorman cracking and eliminating a player holding pocket aces. We investigated further and found the rumours to be true. A chuckling Moorman and Simon Charette retold the story.
Charette opened UTG with pocket tens before Moorman three-bet with six-deuce from two seats along. A third player then moved all-in behind for 14 big blinds. The sandwiched Charette folded to leave Moorman to take care of business. He was priced in and called.
The board ran out to put Moorman up to 290,000.
