Good level for

Dan Shak – He’s jumped to the top of the chip charts seemingly without playing yet alone winning a pot, he’s played just 16% of pots so far, only Phil Laak (9%) has been less involved. But when he’s played he’s been aggressive, only Phil Laak has been more aggressive than Shak so far.

Tony G – The mouth from the south was in danger of being out of the Premier League running before he even got going, but a big pot (see below) got him above starting stack and he’s currently three of eight. And, he’s back talking and on the hard liquor. The G man is back baby!

Bad level for

Talal Shakerchi Somehow Shakerchi finds himself six of eight despite not doing a lot wrong. He pulled off a good four-bet but to be honest he did well not to lose more in a hand against Tobias. The latter flopped a set, Shakerchi turned two pair, but a king on river put four to a straight on board and saw Reinkemeier shut down.

Igor Kurganov It was a slow dribble of a level for the Russian and if his decline continues that bagel is going to taste a little bitter.

Hand of the level

We saw the first all-in of this heat, it came from Tony G and it helped him get back about his starting stack for the first time in an age. More importantly it’s put a spring in his step and got him talking, what’s not to like?

To the hand in question, Tony G raised it up to 16,000 with pocket nines, Talal Shakerchi flat called with pocket sevens and Tobias Reinkemeier came along wiht . The flop elicited a c-bet of 25,000 from Tony G, Shakerchi was the only caller.

The fell on the turn, Tony G checked to Shakerchi, he bet 36,000 but folded when Tony G check-raised all-in for 158,000. After that hand Tony G was up to 303,000.
