It took more than three full orbits of the table before a player lost their entire stack and busted from the tournament. Andreich_SPV got the ball rolling by min-raising to 40,000 from early position, a bet that gijaporo in the next seat along flat-called. To gijaporo’s immediate left was k0ehl and he squeezed all-in for 190,696 chips in total, prompting each of the active players to muck their hands in turn – including the original raiser. However, gijaporo snap-called because he had initially flat-called with the monster hand that is , so k0ehl’s were in big trouble. The board failed to come to k0ehl’s rescue and he crashed out in ninth place, good for just under $2,130.

Two hands later and the table officially became short-handed as Andreich_SPB lost a crucial coinflip, and his stack, to gortatleva. It was all “standard” as the cool kids say, gortatleva opened to 50,000 from early position and then called with when Andreich_SPB three-bet all-in with for 279,522 chips from the button. The flop gave gortatleva a whole host of outs, one of which – the – fell on the turn. Gortatleva improved to an unnecessary heart-flush when the completed the board and Andreich_SPB crashed out of the tournament.

TurtleManeyeye made this move with so was in bad shape against crom31’s [Ad when crom31 tossed in the extra chips and made the call. Neither player improved their hand by the river of the board, crom31 winning the pot by virtue of his ace-queen kicker.
Five became four when a short-stacked gijaporo moved all-in for 241,166 (eight big blinds) from the cutoff with and gortatleva looked him up from the big blind with . The flop had something for both players with gijaporo pairing his ace and gortatleva flopping a flush draw and a gutshot straight draw.

That turned out to be the final elimination for a staggering 99 hands, and indeed the final bust out of this week’s tournament.
