|Blinds||6,000 / 12,000|
Players are on a 20 minute break.
Two hands in a row Bernard Lee raised it pre-draw to 15,000 (from the small blind, then the button) and in both hands Perrins raised it to a total of 39,500 and took down the pot.
We've seen Perrins make a lot of strong moves throughout this event and clearly his aggression hasn't slowed down at the final table.
Josh Brikis, buoyed by eliminating Jason Mercier, opened to 15,000 before Matt Perrins made it 39,000 in the small blind. Brikis deliberated briefly but elected to fold causing some cheers from the Brit rail.
In late position, Jason Mercier moved all in for his last 70k or so. Brikis then re-raised all in and got folds around the table. Both players stood pat and Brikis had Mercier's just beaten with a .
Mercier hit the rail in seventh place, and Brikis moves up to around 190,000.
Jason Mercier raised to 12,000 and Josh Brikis moved all in. Mercier thought briefly but folded saying, "I would've had to draw two."
"I was pat," replied Brikis.
Matt Perrins raised to 12,000 from the small blind and once more Chris Bjorin made the call. Perrins drew two against Bjorin's one before the Englishman checked. Bjorin bet 15,000 again and Perrins called. The Swede showed a but Perrins turned over to win back a pot.
