Within three hands, the rich got richer as Benjamin "bencb789" Rolle and Matthias "iambest2" Eibinger notched up knockouts to bring the field down to the final 18 contenders.
Rolle's raise to 64,500 saw Juan "Malaka$tyle" Pardo with the three-bet jam for 671,694 in the cutoff and the German had an easy call with the far superior stack.
