The very next hand after doubling up Ioannis Prokopakis, he moved all-in with 7♠6♣ and was called by Pawel Bartosz who had Q♦J♣. The board of K♣Q♥[10s]9♦3♦ gave Bartosz the pot. -- NW

He shoved all-in for his last 100,000 holding pocket five and David Torok isolated all-in behind him with pocket jacks. The overpair stayed infront and we're down to 15 players in Prague, it's been a lightning quick start with five players busting in the opening 40 minutes. -- NW

Down to just 8,000 he moved all-in and next to act Petar Zografov raised to 20,000 and was called by Kim Eduardovich and Bartosz Odor. On the 4♥8♠4♠ flop Zografov bet 45,000 and both players called. That was all the action there was though as the three active players checked down the Q♦ turn and 6♣ river, Eduardovich's pocket jacks were good enough to claim both pots. -- NW

2.20pm: Tamas Hermecz eliminated in 19th place (€2,200)

He raised to 21,000, next to act Kim Eduardovich made it 100,000 - effectively setting Hermecz all-in - and he called.

Eduardovich: Q♣Q♦
Hermecz: A♦K♦

It was a classic race, but the queens held up on the 8♥8♣8♠6♣J♣ board. -- NW


2.15pm: Jaroslav Urban breaks the million chip mark
The Czech player was second coming back today and he's now chip leader after eliminating Pavel Berka. With the board reading 5♦2♦[10h]7♣ Berka moved all-in for around 230,000 for just over a pot sized bet with A♦K♣ and Urban called with A♣[10d]. The river was the 9♣ to eliminate Berka in 20th. -- NW
