Mitch Johnson from the United Kingdom opened under the gun with a min raise. Action quickly folded to Mark James who was one of the shortest players still in the tournament. James shoved from the button for 30,500 total and both blinds quickly folded. Johnson made the call.

Because of the hand-for-hand play, action was then halted. The tournament organizers ordered the dealer to wait till all hands on the other tables had been finished. After a minute or so it was time to open the cards to see what the situation was.

Mark James: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Mitch Johnson: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

What started out as a fair fight would soon turn sour for James, as Johnson hit his set: {K-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. James needed runner runner something but was drawing dead on the turn: {4-Hearts}. While the tournament director announced James still had a flush draw, all other players involved knew it was done. The {J-Spades} on the river was a blank and James exited the tournament.

With the departure of Mark James from the UK, the remaining 79 players are now all guaranteed €8,434.
