Another Double for Buonomo

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

Gabriel Carter in the cutoff and Sebastien Buonomo on the button clashed in a raising war and the latter ended up all in for his last 64,000 with the {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}. Carter had the {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} and flopped a jack, but the board came {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to see Buonomo score his second double up for the day not far off the money.

Ivanov Takes from Abdella, Del Piero From Cardyn

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

Out of the big blind, Mladen Ivanov scored a double through Ahmed Abdella. The chips didn't go in preflop, and both players had straight draws on a board of {6-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{A-Clubs}. Ivanov held {A-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and Abdella just shook his head after having paid off his opponent with {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} for a busted gutshot.

Enzo Del Piero led for 23,000 out of the big blind on the board showing {Q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{K-Spades}{5-Spades}. His sole opponent was Nicolas Cardyn, who had just around double of that left in early position. The clock was called on the Frenchman and one minute ran down without any action, Cardyn's hand was declared dead.

Ashton Forces Fold from Makaci

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

Joining the action on the {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop, World Series of Poker bracelet winner Matthew Ashton bet 12,500 out of the small blind and called a small raise by Franck Makaci. The duo then headed to the {K-Diamonds} turn and Ashton shoved for 54,000. Makaci gave it some thought and counted his remaining stack, then folded and mentioned in table chat he feared ace-king.

Ashton raked in the pot with a smile and both players are now almost even in chips.

Nassar Thriving; Down to 39

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

The eliminations continue to come in quickly and tournament staff just announced to the dealers to announce all in and calls at their tables, but continue with the action without waiting. The first table broke and right after, Abraham Passet sent over his short stack to table neighbor Firas Nassar.

The player from Lebanon has been running quite hot early on, and has taken over the lead with 39 remaining. Only the top 34 spots will get paid.

Lodge and Makaci Win Pots

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

While Peter Jaksland and Irina Nikolaidi left the tournament empty-handed after busting with their short stacks, Harry Lodge and Franck Makaci have been able to build their stacks.

In front of Makaci was a raise to 18,000 on the button and Chris Moorman had then clicked it up to 43,000 in the cutoff. Makaci looked over at the stack of Moorman and the Brit counted out his chips for the opponent to see. Makaci moved all in and Moorman instantly folded.

One table over, Harry Lodge had already won quite some chips and opened to 7,000 on the button. Jonathan Clark called in the big blind and checked the flop of {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{3-Hearts}. Lodge checked behind and both checked again the {5-Diamonds} turn. Clark's bet of 13,000 on the {6-Spades} river was called by Lodge, who scooped the pot with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} versus {Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

Another Three Casualties

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

Among the latest trio to run out of chips were Arsh Grover, [Removed:393] and Pierre Neuville.

Grover defended his big blind against a raise by Robert Willis and then got it in with {6-Spades}{7-Spades} on the flop of {J-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Willis looked him up with {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and the {7-Diamonds} turn and {5-Hearts} river were both blanks to eliminate Grover.

Abecassis and Buonomo Double

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

Two Frenchmen just doubled their short stacks to stay in contention.

Michel Abecassis three-bet shoved for 49,000 into an open-raise by Javier Zarco and the Spaniard called with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}. Abecassis had {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} and held up despite a scary run out on the board {K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades}.

Sebastien Buonomo open-shoved for his last 39,500 from late position and Benjamin Morrison reshoved on the button to isolate with {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Buonomo only had one over card with {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, but got there thanks to a board of {A-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}.

Popov First Casualty on Day 2

Nível 14 : 1,500/3,000, 500 ante

From early position, Slaven Popov moved all in for 37,000 and Chris Moorman called from one seat over in the hijack. Arnaud Peyroles in the big blind gave it some thought and apologized to the table for taking his time, then folded and said in table chat he had ace-king.

Slaven Popov: {A-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Chris Moorman: {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}

Popov was in need of help and the flop of {K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades} left him in desperate shape. It was all over after the {Q-Diamonds} turn, making the {K-Spades} river a formality.
