We've reached the end of the level, and the three remaining players are taking a quick five-minute break. We'll sneak a peek at their exact chip counts while they're gone.

Chris Klodnicki raised to 45,000 on the button and Chris Bell called from the small blind.

The flop came down {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{2-Clubs} and Bell checked. Klodnicki bet 50,000, unable to shake Bell. The {5-Clubs} turn card hit, with both players checking. The {4-Spades} river card fell and Bell checked for a third time. Klodnicki fired 220,000 and Bell gave it up.

Pandya called and the flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. Pandya checked it over to Klodnicki, settling on a bet 155,000. Pandya sat motionless for about three minutes, before flicking his hand to the dealer.

Klodnicki flashed the {6-Spades} as the pot was pushed his way.

Klodnicki Over 2 Million

EricRamsey • Level 25: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

We're not 100% sure about the preflop action (the Amp Energy girls just walked past us), but we believe Ketan Pandya completed from the small blind, then called a raise to 55,000 from Chris Klodnicki.

In any event, we did see both men check the {4-Hearts} {K-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} flop, and Pandya checked again on the {5-Diamonds} turn. Klodnicki took his cue to bet 50,000 at the pot. Pandya promptly check-raised to what looked like 160,000 total, and Klodnicki took a bit of a pause before calling.

That brought them to the {A-Hearts} river, and Pandya fired out into the pot with another 175,000 chips. Klodnicki took a couple minutes to make sure this time, but he eventually announced a call. Pandya knocked the felt and held his cards up in the air over the muck. Klodnicki turned up {A-Diamonds} {7-Clubs}, and it was the best hand.

When Pandya dropped his cards back onto the felt, Chris Bell asked to see them, and Pandya flipped over one card. It was paint, but we couldn't tell what it was from here, possibly a black queen. Either way, Klodnicki takes down another nice pot to move Klodnicki up over 2 million. It looks like Pandya is down around 600,000 after that hit.

There are 4.08 million chips in play.

The board ran out {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, safe for Klodnicki to secure the elimination.

Bell Shoves Raskin Out

123md • Level 25: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

In a battle of the blinds, Chris Bell raised from the small. Micah Raskin re-raised from the big blind for an additional 104,000 to call, and Bell did just that.

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Bell checked. Raskin bet 200,000, Bell responded with an all-in shove, and Raskin threw his hand to the muck.

Bell showed the {J-Hearts} as he collected the chips, up to about 1,375,000.

Todd Terry - 5th place
Todd Terry - 5th place

Todd Terry moved all in for 126,000 on the button and Chris Klodnicki isolated from the small blind.

Terry: {Q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Klodnicki: {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

It was all but over when the flop came down {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. The {9-Hearts} sealed Terry’s fate, with the {2-Hearts} river merely a formality. Terry exits in fourth place while Klodnicki is up to about 1.2 million.

Flopped Flushes Provide Little Action

123md • Level 25: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Ketan Pandya raised to 45,000 from under the gun. Chris Klodnicki called on the button and Micah Raskin came along from the big blind, leading to a {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop.

Raskin led out for 160,000 and Pandya took about 90 seconds before calling. Klodnicki folded and the {K-Hearts} hit the turn. Raskin checked, as did Pandya. They each checked the {4-Spades} river card and each revealed flopped flushes. Pandya took it with {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, besting Raskin’s {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}.
