Daniel Ghionoiu made it 100,000 to go in the hijack and Artur Martirosian jammed his short stack in the cutoff. James Romero called after brief consideration and Ghionoiu instantly folded.
Martirosian turned a king on the board and escaped from elimination.
In the very next hand, Romero open-shoved the small blind into the big blind of short stack Arnaud Enselme, who checked his cards and called in a heartbeat.
Enselme locked up the double on the turn of a board and Romero took yet another hit to his stack.
