Blinds: 15,000-30,000 (ante: 3,000)
12.50am: Final eight in place
Florian Langmann decided enough was enough and pushed all-in for 170,000 with [3D]-[4D]. Pagano called with [AC]-[9S] for a flop of [QD]-[9H]-[4H]. Pagano led with the nines. The turn came [6H] changing nothing. Langmann needed a three or four but the ace hit the river, busting Langmann in ninth and leaving eight players to contend tomorrow’s final.
12.40am: Gork pushes in
Marc Gork moves all-in for 252,000 with pocket sevens and is called by Ulusu with A-J. The board runs [KH]-[3H]-[KD]-[9H]-[10D] and the German doubles up.
12.35am: Inter Team Pro combat
Luca Pagano announces “raise”, and puts 105,000 in the middle. It’s folded to William Thorson. He re-raises to 270,000. The others back out of the 447,000 pot and it’s back on Pagano. He asks how much Thorson has, 391,000, before climbing into the tank. Pagano passes though.
12.30am: Storakers dominating
Johan Storakers makes it 100,000 pre-flop. It’s folded to Ulusi who counts out the call and pushes it across the line. The flop comes [QS]-[JS]-[8C]. Both check for a [3D] turn card. Again it’s check-check. The river comes a [10S]. Storakers makes it 125,000 which leaves Ulusu thinking for a while before he passes.
12.25am: Close to the felt
Florian Langmann is the short stack now with 191,000.
12.15am: Battle of the blinds
Mike McDonald makes it 80,000 from the small blind and Sandra Naujoks calls from the big making it a 187,000 pot. The flop comes [9C]-[QS]-[AH]. McDonald bets again, 90,000 this time before Naujoks announces raise, 300,000 in total. McDonald leaves it at that and passes.
12.10am: The blinds keep on going
Play continues into level 24
