Kessler Doubles Through van Holsteyn

Brentharrington • Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Pim van Holsteyn has been one of the more active players today and he raised the small blind to 30,000. Allen Kessler was in the big blind and took the maximum time allowed to reraise to 90,000 leaving 12,000 behind. van Holsteyn raised and Kessler waited about 20 seconds before calling off his remaining 12,000.

He showed {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{j-Hearts} against the {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{j-Spades} held by van Holsteyn. The board ran out {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and Kessler doubled up.

Erik Cajelais potted from the big blind for 75,000 on a {7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop. Lukas Zaskodny put him all in for his last 25,000 or so after some thought.

Cajelais: {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Zaskodny: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Both had flush draws, with Cajelais' nut draw and open-ender meaning he had more outs to make his hand against a lower flush and a gutter. However, he needed to improve as Zaskodny had him high-carded for the moment. The {j-Hearts} turn closed off a few outs, and the {q-Spades} river did nothing for Cajelais.

Gisle Olsen Eliminated in 21st Place (€3,594)

mnuwwarah • Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

On a flop of {k-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, Gisle Olsen got his stack of around 300,000 in from the blinds against Georgios Koliofotis, who was in early position. It looked like Koliofotis bet the flop and Olsen check-raised.

Koliofotis: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Olsen: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

Olsen was in awful shape as an ace would improve Koliofotis to a straight. His best hope was backdoor spades, but the {8-Hearts} turn ended that and locked it in for Koliofotis.

At another table, Mike Leah went bust.

Vahid Amirzahiri

Vahid Amirzahiri was eliminated by Krasimir Yankov. The final hand wasn't too eventful when Yankov got the last of Amirzahiri's remaining chips holding {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{8-Spades} against Amirzahiri's hand which had no card higher than an eight.

Yankov flopped a set, but Amirzahiri was still drawing to a few outs with a gutshot wheel draw that missed on the river. He was eliminated.

Yankov won a couple hands from Amirzahiri earlier in the day, and it continued to get worse for him until he finally busted at the hands of Yankov.
