The next short stack to end up at risk before the flop was Brazil's Luis Gustavo "DJLITTLESOUL" Kamei as he called the open shove of "Tr1pTripM" for fewer than the last eight blinds in a battle of the blinds.

Luis Gustavo "DJLITTLESOUL" Kamei: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
"Tr1pTripM": {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Kamei needed some help but found none on the {7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop. The {4-Clubs} turn provided a flushdraw and chop outs but the ultimate brick followed with the {2-Spades} river to reduce the field to the final 11 contenders.

Patience as Virtue for the Shortstacks

zedmaster84 • Level 32: 150,000-300,000, 35,000 ante

While "VSMPZD" is the overwhelming chip leader, the second table is headlined by "ArtePokerTV" with several short stacks separated by just a few blinds. There were some open-shoves, a three-bet and more but ultimately no showdown emerged.

Yesha "Iconic" Punjabi raised to 600,000 but folded to the three-bet to "32bo".

Chip leader "VSMPZD" opened the action with a raise to 528,000 from early position and shortest stack Andreas "DonPepe" Samuelsson jammed his last 707,082 from the button as the blinds got out of the way.

Andreas "DonPepe" Samuelsson: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}
"VSMPZD": {k-Spades}{7-Spades}

"VSMPZD" flopped a gutshot on {5-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs} and while they missed on the {8-Hearts} turn, it was the {6-Clubs} river that ended Samuelsson's run in 14th place.

Break With 14 Remaining

zedmaster84 • Level 31: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

Only around seven minutes remain in the current level as the remaining 14 players headed into their next scheduled six-minute break. They will combine to the final table when just nine contenders remain.

"VSMPZD" Gets Value From Kamei

zedmaster84 • Level 31: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

Joining the action on the {j-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} turn, Luis Gustavo "DJLITTLESOUL" Kamei checked and chip leader "VSMPZD" bet 515,000 for one third of the pot which Kamei called. The {9-Hearts} fell on the river and Kamei checked once more.

"VSMPZD" now bet 1,175,000 into 2,536,000 and that sent Kamei into the tank. The Brazilian eventually hero-called with {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs} but "VSMPZD" had the best of it with {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}.
