Level 23 - Blinds: 25,000/50,000

After just 12 minutes of play on the unofficial final table, Anton Yakuba was left empty-handed. Philipp Zukernik won a flip with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} against Yakuba's {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} after the board of {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} gave Yakuba a set and Zukernik the nut flush.

Down to 105,000 and first to act, Yakuba then moved all in with {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and Viktor Ustimov called in the hijack with {K-Clubs}{4-Clubs}. The board came {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and that sent Yakuba to the rail in 9th place for $45,600.

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Level 22 - Blinds: 20,000/40,000

First to act over on the outer table, Anton Yakuba moved all in and Petr Bartagov took a long time before reshoving all in. Short stack Vitaliy Gusak forfeited his big blind and Yakuba turned over {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}. Bartagov held {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and flopped a straight on {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts} before the {K-Diamonds} turn and {Q-Spades} river restored the preflop order.

On the feature table, David Laka shoved for 630,000 with {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Alexandru Papazian reshoved with {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} on the button. A board of {Q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{5-Spades}{10-Spades} gave Laka the double and Papazian was left with three big blinds.

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Level 21 - Blinds: 15,000/30,000

Petr Bartagov was all in and at risk for 518,000 out of the small blind and initial raiser Leon Tsoukernik looked him up with an over card and the hopes of a diamond flush.

Petr Bartagov: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Leon Tsoukernik: {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

After a board of {Q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, Bartagov dodged the flush draw to double while Tsoukernik remained in the top spot. The bubble drama continues and the blinds will remain the same for the upcoming 45 minutes while the tournament is still on the bubble.
