Kempe Short After Tollerene Hits Lucky Eight

Nível 13 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante
Rainer Kempe
Rainer Kempe

Not too long after playing a small pot against each other where Kempe got one street of value with his second pair, Ben Tollerene and Rainer Kempe clashed again.

It was Ben Tollerene who opened to 11,000 from the hijack and Rainer Kempe three-bet to 31,000 from the button. Both blinds (Katchalov and Gruissem) got out of the way and action was back on Tollerene. He shoved for 227,500 (45 big blinds) and Kempe called just about instantly.

Rainer Kempe: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Ben Tollerene: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Tollerene seemed unfazed and his face didn't even change one bit after the {8-Diamonds} appeared in the window. The board ran out {8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and Tollerene doubled up, leaving Kempe short.

O'Dwyer in Pole Position Chasing Another Title

It's time for Day 2 of the $25,000 Challenge, and none other than Steve O'Dwyer leads with 519,000 chips, as 25 other hopefuls trail him in the hunt for the $790,560 first-place prize. O'Dwyer recently won the €50,000 Super High Roller in Prague, finished fourth in the Triton Super High Roller and took down the $50,000 High Roller at the PCA.

This two-day event will see its conclusion today, and it's looking to be another very long one. Just 14 players will get paid today in this six-max tournament, and a lot of work needs to be done by short stacks Erik Seidel, Phillipp Gruissem, Niall Farrell and Byron Kaverman.

High stakes heads up player Jason Les currently sits in second place, followed by Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov and recent EPT Prague €25,000 High Roller winner Rainer Kempe. Locals Alexander Lynskey, Michael Egan, Dean Spagnuolo, Michael Weiss and Daniel Neilson are also still in contention in this stacked field at the 2016 Aussie Million.

Play will recommence at 2:30 p.m. local time, which is exactly one hour from now. Stay tuned for all the live updates.
