EPT Baden: dinner break
As the players prepare for the dinner break, there are a couple of eliminations to report. First, Mads Anderson, EPT Copenhagen winner during season two, perished at the hands of Age Spets, king-queen unable to overtake ace-queen.
Then PokerStars qualifier Matt Tyler accounted for Paul Testud. This time Tyler's queen-jack was able to outdraw Testud's ace-eight. Both players had fairly short stacks and were pretty much obliged to make the all in play.
Also playing all-in poker is Katja Thater, the Team PokerStars Pro. She's been nursing a short stack for some time, and is just abot managing to pick up a few blinds and antes by shoving it in. It'll be double up or out very soon.

So, there are 65 players remaining going to the break. The average stack is about 38,000 and they'll be playing level ten on their return.
