4.26pm: Andrew Chen breaks the million chip mark in a pot against Fredrik Nygard. Betting 48,000 pre-flop Nygard called for a Jd-8c-Jc flop. Chen made it 80,000 which Nygard called for a turn card Ad. Now Chen bet 200,000, good enough to make Nygard fold.

4.14pm: Alexiou bets pre-flop again, 60,000 this time. PokerStars qualifier Di Cicco thinks and makes what looks like a painful fold before the action gets to Andrew Chen who calls. Chen checks the 6h-9d-4h flop but Alexiou makes it 65,000. Chen raises to 200,000 using a tower of blues. Alexiou thinks about it but folds.

4.05pm: Andrew Chen, by far the busiest player here, raises to 48,000 from late position but Nygard, on the button, calls, as does Alexiou in the big blind. The flop is Ac-3s-4h and after Alexiou checks, Chen countinuation bets 75,000. Nygard snaps into action at that point and re-raises another 200,000. Alexiou says "Easy fold" and does just that. As does Chen.

3.56pm: Nasr El Nasr eliminated in seventh place, earning €99,500
Andrew Chen makes a pre-flop raise of 48,000. Nasr El Nasr moves all-in and Chen calls, showing pocket tens to Nasr's Kd-Jd. The flop of 2c-4d-Td gives both players hope but no further diamonds arrive to save Nasr, who exits in seventh place for €99,500.

3.51pm: Andrew Chen raises to 48,000 and Alexiou calls in the big blind. The flop is 8c-10c-As and both players check. They also check the 8h turn, and the 3h river. Alexiou shows A-J and wins with his pair of aces.
