EPT Copenhagen: Rampant Ravn eliminates Hudson (8th), Van Alphen shoves aces

ept-thumb-promo.jpgAage Ravn has eliminated Spencer Hudson to stretch out his chip lead knocking out the American with A♠T♦ hitting against jacks all-in pre-flop. Ravn now sits behind a three million stack, a third of the chips in play, with his closest rival Jacob Rasmussen some way behind with 1,347,000, EPT London runner-up Steve O'Dwyer languishes in last place with around 17 big blinds.

Hudson opened to 40,000, Ravn three-bet to 110,000 out of the blinds and called when Hudson shoved for 385,000. While Hudson may consider himself unlucky to see an ace on the turn he was fortunate to make the final table having guided in a short stack to the final eight while Keld Volquardsen blew a million-plus stack in a just a couple of hands. That turn of events earned Hudson an extra DKK51,400, he leaves with DKK191,400 (approx.. $34,500).

Moments after, following an uncalled all-in shove by O'Dwyer, Niels van Alphen open shoved for more than 400,000 from under-the-gun. Hansen called and showed A♠K♣. Van Alphen? Only pocket aces. Despite a king on the turn Van Alphen's hand held up.
