Annette_15 raised to 33,000. Matthew McCullough reraised to 150,000. Gus Hansen moved all in for 586,000. Annette_15 folded. McCullough quickly called. He had Hansen covered.

McCullough: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Hansen: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

McCullough was ahead with kings. The flop was {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. The turn was the {9-Spades} and the river was the {6-Clubs}. Gus Hansen's hand could not improve and The Great Dane bubbled off the final table in 10th place. Hansen won £41,630 for 10th place.

With Hansen's elimination, the final table of nine players is set. Stay tuned for official chip counts.

Where Did They All Come From?

[user4144]
For the majority of the day, the featured table has attracted little in the way of spectators, but now we've reached the final 10, they've arrived in hordes and have absolutely swamped the room -- it's more packed than a magician's hat!

But where did they all come from? Perhaps it's stumble-out-of-the-pub time, or maybe it's simply the fact that King Gus has brought his hysterical fans along, but either way, there's certainly a tad more electricity in the air causing the tension to increase tenfold.

The Railbirds

John Tabatabai won an uncontested pot. He raised preflop and did not get any callers. Tabatabai's boisterous railbirds stood up and chanted something indecipherable. I wonder if any of them will clash with James Keys' rowdy and drunken fans?

All In and a Fold

[user24788]
On the first hand, action folded to Matt McCullough who moved all in from his small blind. Gus Hansen went into the tank for four minutes before he folded his big blind. The camera crew did not see his cards, and they asked him to flash them again to the hole cam.

"I don't want you guys to see these f*****g cards!" joked Gus.

Cards Are Back in the Air

The disco (where the featured TV table is located) is jam-packed with spectators, railbirds, media, staff, and other random folks. The final ten players are here and action will continue until we are down to nine players.

Magnus Persson is the chipleader with 1,300,000. He holds a slight lead over Johannes Korsar in second place with 1,200,000.
