Call! Fold.

With 144,000 in the pot by the {3-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} flop, Giuseppe Argento bet 100,000 and was met by a massive reraise all in from Constant Rijkenberg, easily covering the 600,000 or so that Argento had back. He dwelled up for some considerable time, and then we heard call, and apparently so did the dealer, who started to deal an {8-Hearts} turn. But, it turned out that he actually said fold, to the slight disappointment of us in the press room. Rijkenberg took the pot.

Rasmus Akerblom Eliminiated in 13th Place (€35,400)

Rasmus Akerblom, officially our short stack coming back from dinner on just 257,000 (10 big blinds, more or less), wasted a grand total of zero time and got his chips in the very first hand back. Dragan Galic re-shoved, everyone else very sensibly got out of their way, and they were coinfipping for Akerblom's tournament life.

Akerblom: {K-Spades} {J-Hearts}
Galic: {10-Clubs} {10-Hearts}

Board: {6-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} {6-Spades} {A-Clubs} {7-Spades}

Rasmus must be Aken' now, as he is busto and we are down to twelve. By the by, Alex Fitzgerald has been moved into seat 3 on the non-feature table to balance the tables, sandwiched between Ovidiu Balaj and Sami Kelapuro.

Play Resumes

Cards are back in the air. We thought the next level should be 15,000 and 30,000 (according to the EPT website), but it seems that we're going to play 12,000 and 24,000 first.

Dinner Break

The 13 remaining players have been sent on a one-hour dinner break.

Rijkenberg Rolling

Opening the betting from the button, Constant Rijkenberg made a minimum raise to 40,000. Alex Fitzgerald came along from the big blind, and it was heads up to the flop.

It came down {Q-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {5-Clubs}. Fitzgerald checked, and Rijkenberg fired another 40,000. That bet drew a check-raise from the American pro as he slid out a total of 115,000 chips. Very quickly, Rijkenberg announced, "All in."

Fitzgerald looked taken aback by the move, shooting an evil glance across the table. He counted and re-counted his own stack, then shot another long glance at the table captain. After another minute or so, he slid his cards into the muck, and Rijkenberg took down the pot without incident. As the chips were pushed in his direction, he showed the table his {K-Hearts} {10-Spades} for a pair of tens.

"Wow, you play good," said Fitzgerald dryly, barely bothering to look up from the table.

Kelopuro Making Moves for Chips

Sami Kelopuro on Day 3
Sami Kelopuro on Day 3
The secondary table has become extremely tight. The players don't seem to have much gumption to play without premium cards. Sami Kelopuro may have noticed that trend. He has become extremely active over the last several orbits. Kelopuro has taken several pots in a row by raising to 50,000. If Kelopuro isn't the first one in the pot with a raise, he's playing back at players out of the blinds. Ovidiu Mihai Balaj tried raising Kelopuro's blind to 52,000 from the button; Kelopuro responded by reraising to 215,000.

The players are being sent to dinner shortly. We'll see if Kelopuro keeps up his aggressive ways with a full stomach.

Kati Jerney Eliminated in 15th Place (€30,850)

Kati Jerney - 15th Place
In an apparent fit of desperation, Kati Jerney open-shoved all in for her last 358,000. American William Reynolds then moved all in over the top of Jerney's bet, isolating the tournament's lone remaining female, and no other players challenged:

Jerney: {A-Clubs} {8-Clubs}
Reynolds: {6-Diamonds} {6-Spades}

"I'm amazed that she is that weak, and I'm amazed that he is that weak," said EPTlive commentator and Team PokerStars Pro Greg "Fossilman" Raymer as he watched the hand play out.

The board then filled out {4-Spades} {7-Diamonds} {K-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} and Reynolds took down the pot with a set of sixes.

Jerney will take home €30,850 in prize money for her 15th-place finish. Reynolds, meanwhile, now sits with 1.2 million in chips.
