What started as a limped blind versus blind hand quickly escalated to result in the elimination of Mikita Badziakouski.
Preflop Sam Trickett completed from the small blind and Badziakouski checked his option taking both players to a flop of .
Trickett led out for 5,000 and after a little deliberation Badziakouski made the call.
The turn brought a 15,000 second barrel from Trickett before Badziakouski moved all in for his last 56,000 reasonably quickly. Trickett, sitting on around 142,000 tanked for the full 30 seconds and used two of his three time breaker chips before finding the call and the cards were turned over.
The river was a non-spade and Badziakouski hit the rail while Trickett climbed to 235,000. With nine players now remaining there will be a new seat draw as the two tables are merged into one.
