Just before the break, we lost James Dempsey, the bracelet and WPT winner four-bet shoved with against Jonas Garstick but the latter was holding and held on an unexciting board.
Here are a selection of chip counts from around the room.
Players are now on a 15-minute break.
My esteemed colleague brought you news of Simon Persson and Nick Yunis' battle not that long ago, and it's showing no signs of slowing down.
Yunis min-raised into the Swede's big blind, and he peeled to see a flop. Persson check-called a 1,300 c-bet before both players checked the turn.
The river fell and Persson checked again to face a 15,400 bet from the man from Chile. It was too much for him to handle and he folded.
Per Linde is trying to fly away from his starting stack but is only managing to hover right now.
In a break from talking to friends on the rail he raised to 1,000 from early position. Berthold Winz (big blind) and one other called to a flop.
Linde continued for 1,800 and Winz was the only caller to the turn where both players checked. The river fell and Winz led for 2,300 only to snap folded when his Swedish opponent raised to 6,800.
Joining the action on a flop, Wesley Wiemes checked to his only active opponent from the small blind. That opponent was PokerStars qualifier Bjorne Lindberg who was seated in the cutoff seat so we can assume preflop went raise from Lindberg and a call from Wiemes. Anyway, Lindberg fired a bet of 950 only to see Wiemes check-raise to 2,100, a bet Lindberg was prepared to call.
The turn was the and it slowed the action down because when Wiemes checked Lindberg wasted no time at all before he tapped the table and checked. The river brought the lowly into play and the action went check-check.
Wiemes turned over for a pair of tens and they were good because we never got to see Lindberg's hand and Wiemes won the pot.
Nick Yunis and Simon Persson are playing more than the odd pot against each other, suffice to say I would reckon that only one of them is going to be left standing by the end of this day.
In one hand, Yunis bet a chunky-looking 9,600 on the river of a board and Persson made the call but couldn't beat the Chilean's .
A couple of hands later and they were at it again, Persson check-calling bets of 1,300, 3,500 and finally 5,800 on a board of - 'King' said Yunis, turning over but Persson flipped for aces up to win back some of the previously lost chips.
Roberto Romanello is up to 48,000 chips after having quads paid off. We were doing our rounds on the tournament floor when we noticed Romanello's increased stack size and he told us, sporting his trademark smile, that he was in a pot where there was 9,000 in the middle and he overbet shoved for 19,000 and was called. Unfortunately for the caller Romanello was sat their with four-of-a-kind threes and he scooped the pot.
Whilst we were asking the former EPT Prague champion what had happened Ramin Hajiyev piped up and asked him to tell us how the hand progressed before the shove on the river but Romanello first joked, "I was only in the pot because you were. There's value when you're in there," before telling us, "I don't care how you write it as long as the chips come to me!"
The certainly did go to Romanello and now he has a nice stack in front of him we fully expect him to become more vocal!
