Blinds: 40,000-80,000 (10,000 ante)

1.11pm: Players on break
We are now taking a ten-minute break and will be back with a new level all eight players who started.

1.05pm: A raise, a call, a bet, a fold
Martin Gudvangen opens to 190,000 and Nikolai Senninger calls. The flop comes 7♦J♦J♠ and Gudvangen fires 320,000 at it. That’s good enough.

1.02pm: Milhomens muscle
Dominic Cullen raised to 190,000 from under the gun and Rui Milhomens, two to his left, reraised all in. It was folded back to the short-stacked Englishman who decided to fold and will fight another day.

1pm: Eastgate again
Aaron Gustavson and Peter Eastgate see a flop of A♥8♥4♣ and Gustavson bets 170,000. Eastgate is unimpressed and reraises to …. well, too much. Gustavson folds.

12.50pm: Eastgate finds the re-raise
Dominic Cullen opened the pot with a raise from the cut-off, making it 140,000. Peter Eastgate was having none of it, reraising to 335,000 and taking it.

12.45pm: And now the Gustavson and Gudvangen Show

Expect this to happen several times this afternoon. Aaron Gustavson and Micheal Gudvangen both checked a flop of J♣Q♥8♣. On the 5♠ turn, Gustavson bet 165,000 and Gudvangen called. The river was where we saw the Law & Order (bump-bum!) twist.

It was the 7♦ and drew a rare check from Gustavson. Now, Gudvangen came a’betting for 415,000. Gustavson didn’t dwell long before calling to hear Gudvangen declare two pair with queens and fives.

After the hand Gudvangen was up to 4,370,000 while Gustavson fell to 6,670,000.

12.36pm: Gustavson again
Aaron Gustavson opened for 160,000 which Milhomens called for a K♦5♦3♣ flop. Both checked that for an 8♠ turn. Gustavson made it another 160,000, good to take it down.

12.36pm: Aaron found a razor
After several days of playing here and looking like he’d forgotten to pack a razor, Aaron Gustavson is looking decidedly less like a lumberjack and more like someone who is appearing on television. His mom would be very proud.

12.30pm: On the flop
Rui Milhomens opened with a standard raise pre-flop and Karim Bennani called for a flop of 6♦4♠8♦. With 520,000 in the middle Milhomens made it another 250,000 to go. Bennani thought about it, thought some more, then folded.

12.30pm: Presenting, your final table players

12.25pm: A Wu raise
Raymond Wu makes it 140,000 from the button. Aaron Gustavson is in the small blind and re-raises to 380,000. Dominic Cullen folded the big blind and when the action returned to Wu he folded too.

12.15pm: First hand action
On the very first hand of play, we had an all-in.

Dominic Cullen came in for a raise to 140,000. Peter Eastgate called, and so did Rui Milhomens. They went three-way to the flop of 3♣6♥A♣. Cullen checked to see Eatgate bet 185,000. That led Milhomens to push all-in for 950,000 total. It didn’t take long for Eastgate to fold.
