Play Slows Down

AaronMcBride • Level 41: 5,000,000-10,000,000, 5,000,000 ante

The post-flop action has reduced as the players look to play small pots with their shallow stacks.


James Golder Eliminated in 4th Place (£28,500)

AaronMcBride • Level 40: 4,000,000-8,000,000, 4,000,000 ante

The action folded to Pim de Goede in the small blind and his all in was called by James Golder in the big blind.

Pim de Goede: {9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
James Golder: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

Board: {8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{q-Spades}

It was aces again, and this time Golder was in the perfect scenario. The flop was safe for him, but the turn brought De Goede a straight draw.

"Don't do it!" said Golder, but the river was the queen of spades to give De Goede the straight and he saw his aces cracked to exit in fourth place for £28,500.

Richard Barr Eliminated in 5th Place (£20,000)

Richard Barr moved all in for 33m from the cutoff, and Konstantinos Nanos was in the big blind and was undecided on what to do before he called the extra three big blinds.

"I'll double you up," said Nanos.

"I looked at one," said Barr after he turned over an ace and when the other card was revealed, it was also an ace.

Nanos held {8-Clubs}{4-Spades} and the board ran out {q-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. A shocked Barr saw Nanos hit runner-runner straight to steal the pot and Barr was eliminated in 5th place for £20,000.

Pais Doubles Through Nanos

AaronMcBride • Level 39: 3,500,000-7,000,000, 3,500,000 ante

Konstantinos Nanos raised from the button before Mauricio Pais shoved for 85m from the small blind. The big blind folded and Nanos called.

Konstantinos Nanos: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Mauricio Pais: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}

Board: {3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

Pais only had three immediate outs to hit, and one of them came on the flop to take the lead. Pais held as the board completed and doubled up at Nanos' expense.
