In the first hand we saw Dimitar Danchev raise the cutoff to 10,000 and then call the three-bet of Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier in the small blind to 23,500. On the {5-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{A-Spades} flop ElkY fired and did so again on the {7-Clubs} turn for 38,000.

Danchev called both bets and then the two of them checked down the {2-Clubs} on the river. ElkY showed pocket threes and Danchev took down the pot with {A-}{J-}.

One hand later. Mustapha Kanit raised to 10,000, the Frenchman made it 28,000 to go and Kanit moved all in. Call from Grospellier:

Grospellier: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Kanit: {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

The Frenchman was in excellent shape to double up to where he was just five minutes ago. The dealer spread out the {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop and Kanit had the open ended straight draw. The {J-Diamonds} turn completed exactly that and the {5-Spades} river saw ElkY storming out of the tournament area.
