Zarco Shoves Into Ivanov - Break on the Bubble

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

In the last hand before the break, all other tables were already finished and the stop was clocked. Just one table was running and that saw a limped pot in a battle of the blinds between Mladen Ivanov and Javier Zarco. The former bet the {K-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop for 5,500 and Zarco called.

On the {Q-Spades} turn, Ivanov check-called a bet worth 14,500 by Zarco before checking again the {J-Clubs} river. Zarco moved all in and Ivanov tank-folded to leave himself short with around 11 big blinds for the next level.

The players then headed into the 15-minute break that kicked in at the end of the hand.

Drozdov Shows the Nuts

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

Joining the action on the {J-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop, Matthew Ashton checked in the big blind and Mikhail Drozdov bet 15,000 on the button. Ashton called and the {9-Clubs} appeared on the turn, the Brit checked again. Drozdov bet 33,500 with another 22,500 behind and Ashton eventually folded after his opponent had carefully counted what he had left.

Drozdov showed the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for the nut flush and raked in the pot.

Chen Wins Some; Moorman Loses Some

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

After losing a pot to Joe Johnson, Chris Moorman has joined the short stacks and dropped to just over 12 big blinds on the stone cold money bubble.

Michel Chen however is going the opposite way, after taking down a pot against Neophytos Neophytou. On the heads-up flop of {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, Neophytou checked from early position and Chen bet 10,000 on the button, his opponent called. Both players checked the {8-Diamonds} turn and {4-Hearts} river. Neophytou flashed {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} briefly and Chen claimed the pot with {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}.

Del Piero Takes from Akenhead

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

Matthew Ashton raised to 8,000 from under the gun and James Akenhead three-bet to 23,000 from two seats over in the hijack. Enzo Del Piero quickly called in the cutoff and Ashton put in the extra chips after some consideration.

On the three-way flop of {Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, the trio checked. Akenhead then bet the {A-Diamonds} turn for 32,000 and Del Piero quickly called, Ashton folded. The {A-Clubs} river completed the board and Akenhead checked. Del Piero bet and claimed the pot without showdown, as Akenhead folded.

Cardyn Doubles on the Bubble

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

The first all in and call saw an open-raise by Franck Makaci in under the gun for 11,000 and the shove of Nicolas Cardyn from one seat over for 39,500. Makaci tossed in the obligatory chip after all opponents had folded. Once all tables were finished, the two Frenchmen tabled their cards.

Nicolas Cardyn: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Franck Makaci: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

The board ran out {J-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and Cardyn doubled.

Soon after, there was a three-bet and subsequent four-bet shove, but before writing down the amounts and players, the cards went into the muck. The bubble continues.

Akenhead and Boeree Build Stacks on the Bubble

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

In the last hand before hand-for-hand mode kicked in, James Akenhead and Matthew Ashton clashed in a bigger pot. The two British poker pros headed to a river on the board {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{A-Clubs} and there were already 100,000 in the pot. Akenhead shoved and Ashton eventually folded after plenty of consideration.

Liv Boeree also managed to take down a sizable pot. Harry Lodge fired the {7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}{A-Hearts} river for 60,000 out of the small blind and then folded to the shove of Boeree. It was the first major hit to Lodge's stack all day, who dropped below Boeree in the counts.

Boyko Busts Shchepkin; Hand-for-Hand Enabled

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante
Dmitrii Shchepkin
Dmitrii Shchepkin

Short stack Dmitrii Shchepkin got his last 30,000 in preflop with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and it was Yuriy Boyko who looked him up with {J-Spades}{4-Spades}. "The ace queen of diamonds again?" joked Boyko, as Shchepkin had doubled through him twice on Day 1 and one of those was with that exact same hand.

The board came {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} and the river improved Boyko to eliminate Shchepkin. Right after, the clock was paused and hand-for-hand mode will get underway when all tables have finished their current hand.

Philbort No More

Nível 15 : 2,000/4,000, 500 ante

Philipp Gruissem has been eliminated. The German High Roller regular was all in for just around 26,000 before the flop with {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Michel Abecassis had him covered, albeit not for much, with the dominating {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. The board came {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Gruissem left empty-handed.

After doubling up through Neophytos Neophytou with {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds} versus {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, Ahmed Abdella was involved in yet another all in showdown and this time he had the dominating hand and an opponent at risk in the person of Arnaud Peyroles.

The Frenchman was all in for around 34,000 with {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Abdella had that beat with {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}. The board came {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and that was it for the Frenchman.

At the same time, 2016 Irish Open champion Daniel Wilson was eliminated as well and there are just 37 players remaining.
