Erkenov Takes the Chip Lead Thanks to Double Elimination

Nível 7 : 400/800, 100 ante

The chips are starting to fly here in the Hofburg Palace, and no one is catching them as well as Russia's Ismail Erkenov.

In a recent hand, Lukas Berglund three-bet shoved for approximately 13,000 holding {6-}{6-} and Erkenov four-bet to 30,000. David Kaufmann then five-bet shove for 93,000 with {k-}{k-}, and Erkenov snap-called with {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}. The board ran out a clean {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}, and just like that Erkenov found himself sitting in the catbird seat.

Trickett vs. Refos

Nível 7 : 400/800, 100 ante

Action folded to Sam Trickett on the button and he opened for 2,000. Raoul Refos, who was next to act in the small blind, three-bet to 6,500, the big blind folded, and Trickett made the call to see a flop of {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}. Refos bet 4,500, Trickett called, and the dealer burned and turned the {a-Spades}.

Refos bet again, this time 7,500, but he couldn't shake Trickett. When the {4-Hearts} completed the board on the river, Refos checked and Trickett followed suit. Refos tabled the {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}, and it was good as Trickett nodded and then sent his cards to the muck.

Ravnsbaek is King

Nível 7 : 400/800, 100 ante

Jonathan Karamalikis opened from early position only to have a short-stacked Simon Ravnsbaek three-bet jam for 17,600 from the button. Ismail Erkenov, who was in the small blind, was slow and deliberate in his decision. Eventually he came in with a four-bet to 30,400, and that inspired both the big blind and Karamalikis to fold.

Erkenov: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Ravnsbaek: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Ravnsbaek was well out in front with his kings, and they held after the board ran out a dry {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}.

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier opened for 1,600 and Dominik Nitsche defended in the big blind. The flop was {j-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Nitsche checked and Grospellier continued for 2,000. Nitsche check raised him to 5,200 but Grospellier raised it up some more with a bet of 12,100 which ended the resistance and gave him the pot.

On the next hand, Grospellier again opened for 1,600. Zoltan Szabo called on the button and Kristoffer Edberg did the same from the small blind. The flop came {9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} and a bet of 2,200 from Grospellier did the trick.

Filatov Arrives / Doubles

Nível 7 : 400/800, 100 ante

Anatoly Filatov has joined the High Roller and almost immediately got a double up. Jakub Michalak five bet shoved with {4-}{4-} and was called by the {j-}{j-} of Filatov. No help came on the flop and Michalak was left with only a few thousand chips. He shipped them all in next hand on the button, got no callers and turned over {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} leading him to remark,”F**k this tournament. I don’t want to play anymore.”

"I'm So Confused"

Nível 7 : 400/800, 100 ante
Jason Lavallee
Jason Lavallee

Back in October, Jason Lavallee won the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour London High Roller for £357,700. Lavallee is in today's field looking to become the first player to ever win two EPT high roller titles, but he just faced a set back in a hand against David Kaufmann.

It began when Kaufmann opened under the gun only to have Lavallee three-bet to 4,400. Kaufmann made the call and the both players checked the {q-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades} flop. When the {7-Spades} turned. Lavallee led out for 5,400, Kaufmann called, and the {5-Spades} completed the board on the river.

Lavallee slowed down with a check, and Kaufmann took his time before betting 8,400.

"I'm so confused," Lavallee admitted as he contemplated what to do for nearly two minutes. The bet constituted a good portion of his stack, but he decided to see it. Once the chips hit the felt, Kaufmann tabled the {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} for the nuts. Lavallee stared at the cards for a moment and then sent his own to the muck unseen.
