ANZPT Adelaide: Day 3, level 17 (blinds 3000-6000, ante 500)

5pm: The Moose is back

Raemin Alexander has collected his first scalp of the day when his J♠ J♣ played against the J♦ [10s] of Fabio Cappai on a board that ran out A♣ Q♥ 3♦ A♦ [10c]. Cappai collects $6440 for 21st. Players are just about to take their second break of the day with Andrew Scarf holding the chip lead on 426,000, ahead of Bruno Da Silva (335,000) and the resurgent Peter Aristidou (330,000). Team Australia Pro Tony Hachem holds 234,000, while teammate Eric Assadourian sits on 202,000.

4.45pm: Deuce does it

Another short stack has been picked off with the A-Q of Mark James picked off on the river by the A-2 of Bruno Da Silva. Interesting to note that one of each set of twins - Bruno Da Silva and Ben Butcher - have cashed in this event, surely a first for poker in this part of the world. James takes home $5800 for finishing 22nd. Earlier Chris Evans was confirmed as the 23rd-place finisher when his pocket nines started and stayed behind the pocket 10s of Octavian Voegele on a board that flowed Q♥ 6♦ 6♠ K♣ J♥.

4.30pm: Drinks all round

Poker Zone manager David Galpin has just shouted a round of coffees for the remaining 23 players in the ANZPT Adelaide Main Event. On the other side of the rail, the local brew Coopers appears to be the drink of choice - what better way to spend a warm summer's afternoon in Adelaide Casino.

4.15pm: Parked at table 10

The action is furious, with table 10 the focus of all the attention early in the fourth level of day three in the ANZPT Adelaide Main Event. Tom Grigg was down to just 55,000 when he tripled up thanks to a set of threes before Chris Evans lost a big pot to Bruno Da Silva when his pocket aces were cracked by Da Silva's flopped straight.

At the same table, Derek Cheung, the second last international in the field, bowed out when Rennie Carnivale's jacks held up against the Hong Kong player's pocket 10s. We've also just seen Billy "The Croc" Argyros double through Grigg with kings against eights while Team Australia Pro Eric Assadourian is up to 240,000 after his red 10s prevailed against the A-K of Pankaj Gogia.


Eric Assadourian is heading in the right direction on the leaderboard

4pm: Seiler sets sail

Bryan Seiler has left the Poker Zone $5155 the better after he was KOed in 26th. He was dealt pocket 10s for his final hand, only for Andrew Scarf to wake up with pocket queens. The board ran out A♣ K♠ 4♦ 4♠ 8♦, Seiler was out and Scarf leapt to the top of the chip count with 480,000.

Rennie Carnivale (being cheered on by good friend and 2009 APPT Grand Final winner Aaron Benton) doubled through Aleks Brkovic when he made runner-runner trip aces against the flopped two-pair, kings and jacks for Brkovic. But Aleks bounced back quickly to KO PokerStars Qualifier Joey Masangcay in 25th when his A-K found an ace on the flop against K-Q.
