End of Day Surge for Carrel

Carrel had as much of an up-and-down day as one could possibly have on Day 3, finding himself near the top of the chip leaderboard at times, but also staving off elimination in a couple of key spots.

One such situation came with 13 players remaining, with Carrel at the feature table. Action folded to Severin Schleser in the small blind, and Carrel three-bet all in , pushing his 25 big blind stack into the middle. Schleser called, and Carrel’s pocket threes held up against Schleser’s ace-king.

Carrel also avoided elimination on the three-table bubble, surviving an all-in against Marek Blasko and spinning his stack up to around 40 big blinds at that point.

It’s already been a successful summer for Carrel, who just two weeks ago took down the £50,000 No-Limit 8-Handed event at the Triton Super High Roller series in London, taking home £1,321,000. With a big stack going into the final day, Carrel is looking to add the first place prize of €1,000,000 here at partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Europe.

Partypoker Pros in the Mix

A pair of partypoker pros made deep runs on Day 3. Roberto Romanello ended the day at 41,900,000 in chips, after entering the Day 3 field as an online qualifier. Saturday was Romanello's first day of live play in the tournament, and he stayed in the mix throughout the entire day.

Dzmitry Urbanovich finished 10th for a €60,000, busting out on the unofficial final table bubble in brutal fashion.

Urbanovich was on the wrong end of a massive cooler, dished out by Paleta. Urbanovich ended up calling off the rest of his chips while holding nines full of sevens, but hitting the rail as Paleta turned over pocket sevens for quads.

Rounding out the contingent of partypoker pros in the money was Bertrand Grospellier, who took home €20,000 for a 53rd-place finish.

Big Stack Falls Early

Markus Grewe came into Day 2 with the fourth-largest stack in the tournament, but a tough run of hands in the first two levels of the day ended the German’s tournament run.

Grewe’s stack took a big hit in the first half hour of play, when Yake Wu doubled up through Grewe by dishing out a full boat versus trips cooler. That hand alone took Grewe’s stack from north of 20 million down to 11 million.

Just over an hour later, Grewe sacrificed another double up, this time to Romanello. Romanello’s pocket kings got the best of Grewe’s ace-ten offsuit, taking Grewe’s stack down even further.

A few hands later, Grewe got the worst of it again versus Romanello, bowing out on an ace-queen versus pocket tens matchup.

Looking at the Final Eight

While Grewe's end-of-Day 2 big stack didn't last long through Day 3, Sam Grafton did manage to spin a big stack at the beginning of the day into a final table appearance. Grafton comes back Sunday with 62,400,00 chips and has clinched his fourth six-figure cash of 2019.

Paleta ended up in the final eight after seeing his stack dwindle to six big blinds with 10 players remaining. After two big double ups, Paleta went from the brink of elimination to a championship contender at the final table.

Romanello and Romain Lewis are the only two online qualifiers at the final table, and both are in contention for the championship at a final table with plenty of possibilities, and stacks relatively close to each other.

Day 4 will restart at noon local time Sunday, and play will begin with 27:43 remaining in Level 26, and the blinds at 800000/16000000. The field will play 60-minute levels until a champion is crowned

Jozsef Liszkovics recently doubled up but he was just eliminated after losing against Romain Lewis. Liszkovics jammed from the cutoff with {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for his last 20,600,000. Romain Lewis put his 45,100,000 million in the middle from the button and the blinds folded.

Lewis had the better hand with {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and he held on to the lead after the {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} board ran out. Liszkovics took home €80,000 after missing out on the official final table.

The players will bag up and will continue tomorrow. All are guaranteed €100,000.

Small Pot for Schleser

Niveau 25 : 600,000/1,200,000, 1,200,000 ante

Severin Schleser raised from middle position with {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} to 2,700,000 and it folded to big blind Lukas Zaskodny. He defended his big blind and the two saw the {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop being dealt.

Zaskodny checked to the initial raiser and Schleser fired a bet of 2,100,000. That was too much for Zaskodny who whad whiffed the flop and the pot was pushed to Schleser.

With the board reading {7-Spades}{9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, Dzmitry Urbanovich bet 2,600,000 from the big blind, and Rastislav Paleta made the call from the button.

The river came in {5-Diamonds}, Urbanovich bet 8,200,000, Paleta went all in and Urbanovich called. It was the toughest of coolers for Urbanovich, who turned over {k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} for a full house, but saw that he was defeated, as Paleta had {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for quads.

The final nine will now go on a 15-minute break, as officials determine the final table redraw.
