Korotkikh Triples

Niveau 12 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

For those that haven't seen Mikhail Korotkikh in action yet, he does like to celebrate double ups quite loudly for the entire tournament room to hear. This just happened again, though this time it was even a triple up. Arriving on the {J-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} turn, Dong Zhao and Alexander Uskov checked and floor staff confirmed that Korotkikh had been all in before the flop for 69,800 with both opponents calling.

They also checked the {5-Hearts} river five minutes into the break and Zhao flashed {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}, Uskov the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. What followed was the loud scream by Korotkikh, who tabled {A-Hearts}{J-Spades} for the win!

Badziakouski Thriving

Niveau 12 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

A few minutes ago, Mikita Badziakouski and Stephen Chidwick checked down the river of a board {Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{6-Spades}{7-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and Chidwick showed jack-high, Badziakouski took the pot with his {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}.

Then, a few minutes later, the flop came {Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Badziakouski checked. Chidwick bet 11,000 and folded to a check-raise worth 35,000 by the Belorussian.

Another Three-Way All In

Niveau 12 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

Timothy Adams and Fady Kamar have been eliminated with the former under unknown circumstances and the latter in a three-way all in of three pocket pairs.

Sam Chartier opened and Fady Kamar called before short stack Shaan Siddiqui got his last 14,700 in. Chartier and Kamar also got their stacks in after that and Chartier had the biggest stack and both opponents at risk with the best hand.

Siddiqui: {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Kamar: {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Chartier: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Clubs} flop and {2-Diamonds} turn changed nothing whatsoever, but the {6-Spades} river gave Siddiqui a set and the triple up while Chartier took the side pot by knocking out Kamar.

Stern Busts Neumann and Johnson

Ofer Zvi Stern
Ofer Zvi Stern

The action started with a raise to 4,800 by Zvi Stern and the November Niner found three callers in Keith Johnson, David Dayan and Quan Zhou. In the small blind, Marko Neumann moved all in for 34,700 and Stern flat-called only to see Johnson then move in as well for around 65,000. Stern called and put the two short stacks at risk once Dayan and Zhou had folded.

Neumann: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Johnson: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}
Stern: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

"Oh, that's slightly difficult, diamonds please," Neumann said. Instead, the flop came {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Johnson stood up from his chair ready to leave. Neither the {4-Diamonds} turn nor the {J-Spades} river changed anything and Stern soared up to more than half a million.

Byrne Eliminated

Niveau 12 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

Jason Wheeler doubled up for 26,400 through Paul Bryne after winning a flip with {A-Clubs}{10-Spades} versus {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades} on a board of {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and had only a few big blinds left.

The next hand, Thomas Popov opened to 5,400 and Byrne shoved. Sergey Lebedev reshoved from one seat over and Popov called.

Byrne: {Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Popov: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Lebedev: {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{10-Spades} and Popov doubled up for slightly less than starting stack to bust Byrne and leave Lebedev short. Faraz Jaka busted at almost the same time on another table.

Steve O'Dwyer

Ivan Luca rasied the cutoff to 5,600. The button folded and Steve O'Dwyer made it 17,700 from the small blind.

Paul Newey folded the big blind and Luca made the call, sending them heads up to a {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop. O'Dwyer tapped out a check and Luca bet 12,800.

O'Dwyer called, and the {a-Diamonds} turn was revealed. Both players carefully checked, following suit on the {8-Spades} river as well. O'Dwyer showed the {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} and took it down.

In the meantime, Faraz Jaka has busted his short stack at another table.

Chance Kornuth
Chance Kornuth

Alexander Uskov made it 5,200 and Chance Kornuth, who won the €10,000 High Roller at the beginning of the Grand Final schedule shipped it relatively short.

Grzegorz Grochulski then woke up with a hand behind him and pushed all in himself. Uskov let it go and the hands were revealed.

Kornuth: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Grochulski: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

The board rolled out {6-Clubs}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{10-Spades}, taking Kornuth with it.
