After granting a double up with {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs} versus pocket nines, Nikita "VSMPZD" Kuznetsov was on the verge of losing another and far bigger pot of 25.3 million when he got it in preflop out of the small blind against Yu "kris16" Du.

As the rapid fire all-in showdowns continue it was Che Li "32bo" Lin who ended up at risk via three-bet jam from the button and chip leader Nikita "VSMPZD" Kuznetsov called in the hijack.

Nikita "VSMPZD" Kuznetsov: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Kuznetsov nailed the {j-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop and Lin was drawing dead on the {6-Diamonds} turn, the {8-Clubs} river became a formality. Lin had to settle for 6th place and a payday of $31,111.

Jens "el_gazapo" Kerper tripled up with pocket fives and then doubled with {a-Spades}{10-Spades} against the {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} of Yiduo "Tr1pTripM" Yu in a battle of the blinds after turning the nut flush.

Kerper then got it in for the third time in a row and faced Jeffrey "hockeysyrup" Mallach in the big blind.

Jeffrey "hockeysyrup" Mallach: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Lin eliminated by Mallach
Lin eliminated by Mallach

Shiqiang "Almightycat" Lin had been moved tables and went through the blinds once. Down to fewer than seven blinds, Lin raised the button to 2.4 million after the blinds had gone up and then called all-in when Jeffrey "hockeysyrup" Mallach piled it in from the big blind.

Shiqiang "Almightycat" Lin: {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Jeffrey "hockeysyrup" Mallach: {a-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Lin was in trouble and flopped a gutshot on {7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} while Mallach had top pair. The {10-Diamonds} turn added a flushdraw but again the player at risk missed on a blank {10-Clubs} river.

With the field down to 10 players, they are balanced once more as Jens "el_gazapo" Kerper went on the move to take Lin's vacated seat.
