Marko Neumann raised to 26,000 from the button only to have Yann Pineau three-bet to 75,000 from the small blind. The big blind got out of the way and action was back on Neumann. He thought for about 45 seconds before announcing that he was all in. Pineau took a deep breath and slid his chips past the betting line, calling for 392,000 total.
Neumann was out in front heading to the flop and looked primed to end Pineau's tournament. That all changed in a flash, however, as the flop struck the felt. Pineau flopped top two pair and suddenly Neumann needed to improve in order to win the hand. He found no help on the turn () or the river () and Pineau was able to find new life in the Main Event.
Pineau now has about 820,000 while Neumann has dropped to 795,000.
