Michael Drummond Eliminated in 16th Place (€43,000)
Michael Drummond opened to 50,000 from the hijack, Brian Roberts called from the cutoff, and Amir Lehavot called the remainder from the big blind to go three ways to the flop.
It came , and Drummond continued out with 68,000. Roberts called, Lehavot ducked out of the way, and it was heads up to the turn. Drummond wasn't slowing down, and he bet 127,000 there, leaving 295,000 behind. Roberts called again, and the rest of Drummond's chips went all in on the river.
As the cameras panned over to the outer table, Roberts made the call and flashed his hand: . There was still no announcer, so Drummond was forced to stand behind his chair with his inferior hole cards laying face-down in front of him. It was a minute or more of agony for Roberts, and the dealer was finally made to flip his over. Sevens up are no match for kings and queens, and Drummond has bowed out in 16th place.
He'll take a pay bump up to €43,000 for his work this week.
Roberts has really closed the gap on the leader, moving up into second place and within striking distance of Max Silver.
