You sense that this could be the calm before the storm. Level three passed without any big pots or even big showdowns. But stacks are getting shallower and the pressure is starting to grow on those at the bottom.
The players chip stacks are as below. The +/- figure in brackets is their profit/loss since the end of the last level and the big blind figure is how many they have for the current level. The blinds during Level 4 will be 4,000/8,000/1,000 ante
Tobias Reinkemeier – 444,000 (-74,000) 55.5 big blinds
Jonathan Duhamel – 443,000 (+68,000) 55 big blinds

Antonio Esfandiari –186,000 (+31,000) 23.25 big blinds
Talal Shakerchi – 177,000 (-55,000) 22 big blinds
Good level for
Antonio Esfandiari The Magician got short on chips and got shoving. He got two through uncontested and then found kings to keep his stack moving in the right direction.
Bad level for
Talal Shakerchi The Brit is now the cellar dweller and with the blinds now 4,000 – 8,000 ante 1,000 he basically has a one-move stack. All-in baby.
Hand of the level
There were no out and out huge pots in this level but there were many interesting hands, such as when Jennifer Tilly took one from the Jungleman…
Jungleman made it 15,000 to go from the hijack with and Jennifer Tilly called with from the cut-off. The flop fell , Jungleman led for 18,000 only for Tilly to make ti 60,000 total.
Back on Jungleman you could see the cogs turning, he really looked like he was about to come back over the top but he mucked his hand and said. “You don’t know how close I was.”
View from the booth
“Talal knew he had her beat because it made no sense, but he laid it down because it’s Jennifer,” Jesse May on a hand that Jennifer Tilly and Talal played in the heats.
