They are down to 12 players in the €1,000 no limit hold'em two-day event, and edging nearer the €48,000 first prize. Dietrich Fast, the freshly-minted bracelet winner, continues to roll ever onward and sits with the chip lead of 360,000.

Daragh Davey is on Fast's table too, holding his own with about 150,000. They are in Level 17, with blinds of 3,000-6,000, so it's getting a little shallow for most.

That said, Davey is faring better than Frederik Jensen, his neighbour, who is also the overnight chip-leader. Jensen is down to about 80,000. Lukasz Mroczek is closest behind Fast, with 340,000.

The baffling and brilliant "Splitsville" tournament has nine players left and has also just entered Level 9. Benny Glasser has emerged in the lead in that one, with about 85,000 chips.

There's €4,820 available for the winner, with the top four paid.

The €1,000 PLO event is under way. That's a two-day affair, which attracted 64 players. Twenty-five of them are left and it seems to me that Laszlo Bujtas is leading with 65,000 chips as they enter the 300-600 level.

It's all rather sedate over there in side-event land, but it's about to get wild - deuces wild, in fact, which starts at 9pm.
