The remaining five players are on a scheduled five-minute break and five hands of the next level have been completed thus far. Juha Helppi won the last three pots in a row and pulled into the lead.

Helppi first turned a set of nines against a button limp by jens "98snaeJ" Kyllonen when Jesus Cortes also stuck around from the big blind. Little action followed on a {j-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts} board to award the pot to Helppi with the {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Spades}.

Helppi then bet a four-way limped {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop for 100,000 and Mike Watson was the only caller. They checked the 55h] turn and Helppi bet the pot on the {3-Diamonds} river to force a fold.

Helppi then bested Belarmino "Iseey0urcard" De Souza who defended the big blind and check-called one bet on the {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{k-Spades} turn, the {6-Clubs} river was checked. De Souza tabled {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} nd Helppi had that beat with {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Spades}.
