With ten player left, there were eliminations at both tables, meaning the final table will be eight handed. On one table, a short stacked "Carcudinha" moved in preflop, and he was called by two players. By the river, "Carcudinha" had just seven high, while Niko "niNohR" Koop had made a pair to bust him.
At the same time, Johan "Mr-Water99" Haugen got it all in with pocket eights, but he was dominated by the pocket nines of Soo Jo "choleeek89" Kim. The board wouldn't change anything until Kim made an unneeded set on the river, and just like that, the final table was reached!
Just 14 players remain now, as there were two quick eliminations once the final two tables were reached.
Action kicked off with Nissim "Threesixs888" Azrad moving all in for his final 520,000. Kosei Ichinose was next to act, and he shoved all in for 2.5 million. In the big blind, Andriy "smbcall911" Lyubovetskiy would call for just 50,000 less than Ichinose.
Andriy "smbcall911" Lyubovetskiy:
Nissim "Threesixs888" Azrad:
Azrad was in great shape to triple up, and he would do just that, while Lyubovetskiy scooped a massive side pot with his pocket tens. On the button, Ichinose, who was the chip leader for quite a while, now has less than a big blind.
Action folded around to Helio "TeuCu" Neves in the small blind, and he moved all in for just over a million. "FudGuy" called with , but he was dominated by the of Neves. The flop of pept Neves in quite good shape, but a four came right on the turn to flip the script. Neves still had outs on the river to counterfeit that two pair, but the river was not one of them.
