EPT Dublin: Ara Out

Ara Melikian was shortstacked and needed to make a move. He moved in with 9 3. Roland De Wolf took him on with A 8. Roland's ace was enough to put Ara out. He'll take €7,390 back to New York.

There are now 24 players left and they're re-drawing for seats. Team PokerStars Luca Pagano is still playing, as are Roland De Wolf, Willie Tann and Roy Brindley. Five remaining players are PokerStars qualifiers. Here's their names, and a little bit about them.

Finnur Hrafnsson - Large, Icelandic, grey top.
Ray Coburn - Eats sweets, used to have green hair, 14th in Dublin last year.
Simon Ehne - Swedish, must be a good player, stripy top.
Marcel Baran - Long hair, lot of chips.
