Only Four Tables Remain

Savenkov vs Angelini
Savenkov vs Angelini

India's "EV CHOP" found no help with {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} against the {a-Clubs}{9-Spades} of "topboi" as the board ran out {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{2-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{7-Spades}.

Only moments later, Xavier "Minguella" Robert Ros ran with {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades} into the {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} of Joseph Cheong and found no miracle on the {9-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{10-Clubs} board.

Aleksey "ImLuckPads" Savenkov was next to fall as he had a kicker problem with {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} against the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} of Nicola "JuStOnETiMe_" Angelini. The board brought {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and that spelled the end for Savenkov.
