With three levels left in the evening, the race is on to see who will be end-of-day chip leader. Robin Hegele is certainly making a good go of it, having chipped up to almost 400,000.

And he surpassed that mark after holding with {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} against the {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs} of an opponent on a {6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} run out.

"Never would have guessed that would have happened!" said a tablemate.

"Huh?" replied Hegele.

"Don't worry," said tabemate Manig Loeser,. "Germans aren't known for their sense of humour."
