ANZPT Adelaide: Day 1B, level 5 (blinds 150-300, ante 25)

5.30pm: Four kings, just to rub it in

Nick Putt, son of New Zealand poker stalwart Graeme 'Kiwi G' Putt, has eliminated Adelaide's Pana Flourentzou in emphatic fashion. Flourentzou moved the last of his short stack into the middle with Q♥ Q♣, only to be snapped off by Putt who revealed K♠ K♣.

Flourentzou could only pray for a miracle but the poker gods layed their ethereal smackdown on him in a big way when the flop came down J♦ K♥ K♦. The turn and river of 3♣ 2♣ completed the board but "Pana" wasn't there to see it - he'd already walked out.

5.15pm: The Poker Star shining brightly

We've been rushing backwards and forwards between the media desk and table 10 (which is precisely one metre away), where PokerStars Sponsored Player and The Poker Star winner Amanda De Cesare has been involved in some big action once again, this time against Eddie Saade.

The money was all-in preflop; Saade had revealed K♠ K♦ but De Cesare had him dominated with A♥ A♦. The dealer spread the board of 3♦ 9♦ 2♠ 9♥ 5♦, improving neither hand. After the chips were cut down, Saade was found to be the shorter of the two stacks and was sent to the rail. Much to the delight of her biggest supporter Peter Aristidou, De Cesare is now up to around 36,500 in chips.
