8.30pm: Scotty Nguyen doubles up through Petter Jetten
Nguyen moves all in from the button and immediately implores John Juanda and Petter Jetten to call from the blinds. Juanda doesn't oblige but Jetten does and has 7-8 off suit. Nguyen has J-J and is way ahead. The flop comes 10s-3s-6d which gives an inside straight draw. The turn is a 7d, which gives two pair possibilities. The river is the Ks to snuff them out and Nguyen doubles up.

8.22pm: Scotty moves all-in, but then doesn’t, pushing his stack to the line before stopping just short, much to the merriment of a few people, not least Nguyen.

8.20pm: Isaac Haxton, USA, eliminated in sixth place, earning £103,000
Isaac Haxton puts in a standard raise and John Juanda reraises. Haxton has a long, long think but eventually shoves all in and Juanda insta-calls. No wonder: it's aces for JJ and Haxton is dominated with 8-8. They're even the same suits. There's an ace on the flop and the miracle running eights do not appear. Haxton is out in sixth.

8pm: Play resumes on the final table with six players remaining.
