€25k Update: Final Table Reached; Bonomo Leads

Justin Bonomo & Erik Seidel

Erik Seidel opened to 35,000 on the button. Zachary Clark three-bet all in from the small blind and Aleksander Uskov moved all in from the big blind, both with around ten big blinds. Seidel, who came back from the break with around 90,000 in chips had chipped up significantly since play resumed after the dinner break.

"I guess I call," he said, tabling {a-Spades}{q-Hearts} against Clark's {k-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Uskov's {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}.

The board ran out {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} sending two players to the rail and meaning that the final table would start eight-handed, on the exact money bubble.

Here is the seating draw and chip counts of the final eight players:
