Greg Raymer's day is over. Playing in day two of the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Lowball, he was never able to get his challenge moving, despite ducking and diving in pots.
In the end, the final damage was done by Team PokerStars Germany Pro Anton Allemann, who found 8-6-5-4-3, good enough to eliminate the Fossilman.
It's slow going, with 27 players still left, and the money not kicking in until 14th place. But Allemann is now nicely placed - up to 117,000 with the average on 106,000.
For those of you unfamiliar with Allemann, here's a clip of him playing against fellow Team PokerStars Germany Pro Sebastian Ruthenberg on his way to an eighth-place finish at EPT Baden two years ago...
JC Alvarado is still plugging away in his round two match of the $1,500 No Limit Shootout. They started with 45,000 chips, and he's managed to move that up to 61,500, with five bustouts so far from his table of ten.
Also in the Shootout is fellow Team Pro Victor Ramdin, although he was down to 6,000 not so long ag0. There are still ten at his table after more than four hours' play.
Meanwhile, the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event kicked off today with a huge field of close to 2,500. Many Team Pros are plying their trade here, including Humberto Brenes and Maria "Maridu" Mayrinck.
