Luke Marsh Eliminated in 6th Place (€177,420)

zedmaster84 • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Luke Marsh

Ricardo Da Rocha opened the action with a raise to 180,000 from under the gun with the {a-Spades}{10-Spades} and Mikalai Pobal in the small blind glanced at the {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}. He opted to call and Luke Marsh in the big blind filled up with the {k-Hearts}{5-Hearts}.

The flop brought {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} and Marsh hit top pair while Da Rocha had the nut flush draw. Pobal and Marsh checked, Da Rocha bet 180,000 and Pobal called, as did Marsh.

Da Rocha improved to the nut flush on the {9-Spades} turn and Pobal checked to Marsh, who checked as well. Da Rocha used a time bank extension and fired a second bet worth 425,000 into a pot of 1,160,000, prompting an instant fold from Pobal.

Now it was up to Marsh to use a time bank extension and he then made the call after an additional 30 seconds of consideration with just 1,460,000 behind.

The {6-Hearts} on the river paired the board and Marsh checked the third street in a row. Da Rocha announced all-in and that sent his opponent into the think tank once more. Marsh required an additional two time banks and called in the very last hand of the night to become the 6th place finisher, taking home €177,420 for his efforts.

All remaining five players will now bag and tag for the evening, they will return to their seats on the feature table at noon the following day to play down to a champion.
