Ross Eliminated

Niveau 19 : 5,000/10,000, 10,000 ante

Daniel Ross pushed in 150,000, leaving 5,000 back, from middle position. Ali Ghezelbash called in the big blind then stuck the rest in on the {k-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Spades} flop. Ross tossed in his chips and turned over {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. He needed lots of help against {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}. The {j-Clubs} turn and {7-Spades} river didn't do it.

Aido Eliminated by Bansal

Niveau 19 : 5,000/10,000, 10,000 ante

Mike Del Vecchio had won a massive pot towards the end of the previous level and the prospect of a third final table in a row is looming as he moved to more than 1.1 million. Del Vecchio now opened to 20,000 and Sergio Aido jammed the button for 132,000.

After giving it some thought in the big blind, Paawan Bansal inquired "how much is it exactly" before moving all-in over the top for around 150,000. Del Vecchio double-checked his cards and opted to fold.

Sergio Aido: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
Paawan Bansal: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

On a board of {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades}{10-Spades}, Aido failed to hit a two-outer and had to settle for 48th place.

Simen Gulbrandsen
Simen Gulbrandsen

As hot as the run of Simen Gulbrandsen was at the start of the level, as cold it has been at the very end. Soon after he had clashed with Matthew Wantman, the Norwegian was at risk for 84,000 out of the small blind and Wantman looked him up from the big blind.

Simen Gulbrandsen: {k-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Matthew Wantman: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

There was no miracle escape on a board of {q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and Gulbrandsen had to settle for 50th place.

On the heads-up turn of {k-Spades}{j-Spades}{2-Clubs}{a-Hearts}, Jeremy Pekarek was all-in for 235,000 and Bryce Yockey looked him up.

"Just put a king out there, I don't care," Pekarek said as he was ahead with {2-Spades}{2-Hearts} for bottoms set while Yockey had {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for two pair. The {q-Diamonds} on the river was a blank and Pekarek doubled.

"Deep waters. Wow, what a day," Pekarek added before he was stacking up the chips.
