On the last hand of the level, Gautam Sabharwal had raised to 56,000 and everyone folded to the big blind Eric Sfez who made the call while all the other players left for their break.

The flop was {6-Spades}{J-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Sfez checked while Sabharwal bet 100,000. Sfez check-raised all in and Sabharwal quickly called.

Sfez: {Q-Spades}{3-Spades}
Sabharwal: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}

The {Q-Hearts} turn gave Sfez extra outs but the {4-Diamonds} river damned the Frenchman to the rail.

Quoss Doubles Through Shakerchi

Talal Shakerchi raised 50,000 from the cutoff and Fabian Quoss made the call in the big blind to see a {2-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts} flop.

Quoss checked and Shakerchi bet 55,000 before the German check-raised to 135,000 with 370,000 behind. Shakerchi took a moment then moved all and Quoss snap-called.

Shakerchi: {J-Spades}{4-Spades}
Quoss: {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

Shakerchi had been caught but he still had a backdoor flush draw but predictably it didn't come on the {6-Clubs} turn or {4-Diamonds} river.

This was the second to last hand before the break...counts to come.

Gautam Sabharwal opened to 48,000 from early positon, Vicky Coren three-bet shoved for 189,000 from the cutoff, and the action folded back to Sabharwal, who called.

Sabharwal: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Coren: {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}

Sabharwal took the lead when the flop came {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}{k-Spades}, but the {a-Hearts} spiked on the turn, giving Coren the lead once again. A second ace - the {a-Clubs} - completed the board, and Coren doubled.

During the runout, there were fans of Sabharwal and Sfez cheering against Coren. Coren gave them a piece of her mind after the hand, telling them if they wanted to root against her, then not to do so right in her ear.
