Michel "CrossfireX" Dattani won the last two hands of the previous level, twice by betting the turn, and boosted his stack to more than two million in chips.
Elio Fox then raised to 132,000 from an early position, which was matched by Ronny Kaiser out of the big blind. The flop fell and Kaiser checked, Fox bet 88,500 and earned another call. That led to the turn and Kaiser checked once more. Fox now bet 390,000 into 531,000 and Kaiser activated his time bank.
After nearly 90 seconds, Kaiser jammed for almost 1.5 million, and now it was up to Fox to utilize the additional time. Some two minutes passed and Fox made the call with the superior stack.
The fell on the river to give Fox broadway and Kaiser was gone in 8th place.
"Elio came to play," Sean Winter stated in table chat.
