"He's a World Champ"

Jaxon • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante
Espen Sandvik
Espen Sandvik

Espen Sandvik four-bet jammed what appeared to be for around 30,000 and was called by Jon Kyte. Also getting in his last 5,000 chips in the process was Atte Maisala.

Espen Sandvik: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Jon Kyte: {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Atta Maisala: {k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

Kyte was calling for a jack but was in big trouble after Sandvik paired his ace on the {a-Spades}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop. The checkmark in the hand went over to Sandvik after the {8-Spades} came on the turn and the pot was officially awarded to Sandvik after the {9-Clubs} completed the board on the river.

Kyte was laughing after the hand and said: "It's OK. He's a world champ."

This refers to the 8-game WSOP Europe bracelet Sandvik just won a few weeks ago.

Palmroos Bad Beats

Jaxon • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Terno Palmroos with {q-Spades}{10-Spades} four-bet jammed for about 28 big blinds and was called by Afshin Alikhani with {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}.

Alikhani got out of his seat when his opponent paired the {10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop. Neither the {9-Hearts} on the turn nor the {j-Spades} on the river were able to save Alikhani and he sarcastically "thank you."

He sat back down for the next hand when he learned he had his opponent covered by five big blinds.

Elvensen Doubles with Fish Hooks

Jaxon • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Vytautas Kacerauskas opened for 2,800 from early position and got a call from Mikko Ylamaki from middle position. Even Elvensen jammed for 29,000 from the button. Kacerauskas called and Ylamaki folded.

Even Elvensen: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Vytautas Kacerauskas: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

"Good luck," said Elvsensen as he got out of his chair.

Elvsensen sat back down as the {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Spades} was a safe runout and instead of hitting the felt he doubled his stack.

Record Tied

Jaxon • Level 8: 400-800, 800 ante

The record for the most entries in an international event in Tallinn has been tied with there now being 589 entrants including 407 entrants today. The record was set last October at the Coolbet Open.

Players are on their last break of Day 1b. Blinds will increase to 500/1,000 with a big blind ante of 1,000.

Jaxon • Level 8: 400-800, 800 ante

Jimmy Dewerdt's stack has taken a hit. Dewerdt check-called a bet of 8,000 from Kristian Zitting with about 20,000 chips in the pot with the {5-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{j-Spades} on the board.

Dewerdt checked again after the {2-Spades} completed the board on the river and Zitting jammed for more than 40,000 in chips.

Dewerdt tanked for about two minutes before he said: "Guess you're jack is good."

He then folded his hand and the dealer sent the pot over to Zitting.

Three Suited Big Slicks

Jaxon • Level 8: 400-800, 800 ante
Terje Bremseth
Terje Bremseth

A player opened to 2,000 before Terje Bremseth jammed the button for around 24,000. Another player called from the small blind and the original raiser also called

Bremseth turned over {a-Spades}{k-Spades} and then commotion happened at the table with lots of shouting and cheering with one of the other players turning over {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and the third player turning over {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}.

The {4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop made Bremseth vocally nervous as it gave one opponent a flush draw and another a backdoor flush draw. However, the {3-Spades} came on the turn followed by the {4-Spades} on the river and it was a three-way chop.

Meanwhile, at another table, Borresen has the unofficial chip lead in the tournament after growing his stack to 220,000 in chips.
