Valentin Frunze Eliminated in 12th Place (£5,200)
Nível 19 : 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Just before the dinner break, yet another player was eliminated and that unfortunate honor belonged to Valentin Frunze. It was in fact also in unfortunate fashion, after Joe Johnson open-shoved from the small blind and Frunze called all in for 180,000 in the big blind.
The board came and the three on the river improved Johnson to eliminate Frunze in 12th place for £5,200. All remaining players have now £6,280 locked up.
