The remaining 19 players will return at 12:30pm CET and play this thing out, led by Mukul Pahuja who bagged up 1,488,000 after winning a big pot at the end of the night. He three-bet Mikita Badziakouski with pocket aces and managed to get an extra two streets of value out him (before he mucked on the river) on a board containing two jacks. Vladimir Dobrovolskiy closed the day a close second with 1,389,000. A lot of his chips came in the last level of the night when he flopped two pair versus David Yan and then won a half-million chip pot when eliminating Przemyslaw Piotrowski, his pocket kings surviving against the Pole’s ace-king.
The bubble period dominated the period before and after the dinner break. Overnight chip leader Adrian Mateos fell two short of the money when his pocket jacks couldn’t stay ahead of Bryn Kenney’s king-queen in a 80 big blind pot, then followed a hand for hand play lasted more than two hours.
The full overnight chip counts are:
|David Yan||New Zealand||265000|
