6.45pm: Bagging for the final four tables
We have now reached our target of 32 players and that’s that for the day. A full wrap of the day’s action is imminent, as is a full, official, accurate, and all that, chip-count. In the meantime, you don’t have to be a prizewinner to bask in the glory of the prizewinners page.
6.40pm: Day is done
Adrian Schaap made it 15,500 pre-flop from mid-position. It’s folded to Albert Sungatullin who calls from the big blind. The flop comes J♦K♠5♣ which Sungatullin checks. Schaap makes it 23,000 and Sungatullen moves all-in which Schaap wasted no time in calling. Q♥K♦ for Schaap, ahead of Sungatullen’s K♥7♥. The turn 10♦ and river 5♥. It’s all over. Sungatullen is the last to leave on day three. – SB
6.30pm: More jijinks from Litvinov
Adrian Schaap has sat next to Artem Litvinov all day, which means he’s seen more coin-flips (literally) and more massaging than he’s probably seen in his life. Litvinov still has his massage therapist working his neck (she’s been there all day) and he is still getting involved in all manner of pots.
Most recently, Schaap and Litvinov joined Albert Sungatullin and Arthur Simonyan in seeing a cheap flop that came down 2♠10♦5♦. It was checked to Schaap, who bet 16,500 and only Litvinov called. The turn was the K♣ and both players checked, Litvinov first having to be reminded that action was on him, to the left of the button. On the river 5♠, Litvinov checked that he was first to act, then didn’t act until a clock was called. When 10 seconds remained, he bet 15,000 of his 40,000 stack. Schaap took approximately 1.09 nanoseconds to move all in and Litvinov insta-folded. – HS
