On the river of a {7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} board Max Altergott set David Vamplew all in for his last 87,000 with around 50,000 already in the pot.

Vamplew tanked for about five minutes before eventually calling and immediately turning over {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}. Altergott sat silent and still for ten seconds before mucking his cards.

A huge double up for the only remaining EPT champion in the field.

Vasili Making a Run

Nível 17 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

Vasili Firsau just ended up all in and at risk, but he was in great shape to double up. Aris Petropoulos was the short stack in this clash with just 45,000 chips and the cards were turned face up.

Firsau: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Petropoulos: {A-Spades}{3-Spades}
McClean: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

The board ran out {K-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and Firsau raked in a huge double up as he was all in for 155,000 chips. McClean was left behind with a big stack but he will now have to battle it out with Firsau for much longer.

Perez Peaces Out

Nível 17 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

Juan Manuel Perez open-shoved all in for 28,500 from under the gun, Jamil Kanji called in the hijack seat, and the rest of the players folded.

Perez: {a-Spades}{7-Hearts}
Kanji: {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Perez's hand held up on the flop ({8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}) and the turn ({3-Hearts}), but the {q-Clubs} spiked on the river and he was eliminated.

No Shorr Thing

Nível 17 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

Shannon Shorr has dropped down to less than 100,000 after he called Georgios Karakousis all-in on the river of a {J-Spades}{K-Spades}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts} board. The latter showed {A-Spades}{5-Spades} and Shorr mucked his hand but due to it being an all-in showdown, his {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} was flipped over by the dealer.

Karakousis has about 350,000 now, a very healthy position indeed.
