Phil Hellmuth made it 14,000 from under the gun. Maciej Kondraszuk called in the small blind, as did Theodoros Aldonopoulos in the big blind. The flop of {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} was checked by all players. The turn was the {6-Spades}. Kondraszuk bet 14,000. Aldonopoulos folded and Hellmuth open-mucked {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}.

The next hand, Hellmuth was in the big blind and checked after Madhukar Pandya limped under the gun and Aldonopoulos completed in the small blind.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs}. Aldonopoulos bet 7,000 and Hellmuth moved all in for 9,500. Pandya called, as did Aldonopoulos. Both remaining players checked the {6-Diamonds} turn and the {a-Hearts} river and all cards were turned over.

Madhukar Pandya: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Theodoros Aldonopoulos: {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Phil Hellmuth: {k-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

Hellmuth's two pair, nines and threes with a king kicker, was no good and Pandya won the pot with aces up. Hellmuth was eliminated from the tournament. There will be a short pause as the players redraw around three tables.
