Niklas "Lena900" Astedt Eliminated in 17th Place ($7,103)

BrandonBloom • Level 22: 25,000-50,000, 6,000 ante

Niklas "Lena900" Astedt opened to 100,000 from the cutoff, Anatoly "NL_Profit" Filatov three-bet to 500,000, and action folded back to Astedt who put his entire stack of 3,353,744 chips into the middle. Filatov called and the hands were tabled.

Niklas "Lena900" Astedt: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Anatoly "NL_Profit" Filatov: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

Astedt was in rough shape and the {2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{k-Clubs} flop left him drawing slim. The {3-Diamonds} turn had him drawing dead and the meaningless {a-Spades} river came down to eliminate Astedt at the end of the day, and propel Filatov to a sizable chip lead heading into Day 2.

Chip counts of all remaining players and a recap of today’s action are to follow.
