Event #5: THE COLOSSUS - €550 No-Limit Hold'em

Israelashvili and Freitez Eliminated

zedmaster84 • Level 7: 250-500, 75 ante
Roland Israelashvili

Ivan Freitez doubled with {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} versus {5-Spades}{3-Spades} for 5,400 after a flop of {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop when the {6-Clubs} turn and {K-Spades} river blanked out. Back up to around 15,000, Freitez then got into a big pot with table neighbor Stephane Schmitt and turned two pair with {6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} only for the Frenchman to turn over {8-Spades}{5-Clubs} for a straight on the board of {J-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}{A-Diamonds}.

Another big name busted at almost the same time on a different table and another Frenchman was involved. Roland Israelashvili got his last 6,500 in with the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} and Frederic Delval called with the {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. The board came {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}{A-Spades}{6-Clubs} and Israelashvili was drawing dead on the turn on his second bullet to join the rail indefinitely for Day 1e.
