Ioannis Prokopakis is out in 10th


6.15pm: Antonio Dieguez Rodriguez doubles through Jaroslav Urban
I only caught the action on the river but with the board reading K♦J♥8♠5♥A♣ Jaroslav Urban led out for 130,000 and Antonio Dieguez Rodriguez moved all-in for around 300,000 more. After a short think Urban announced call. The Spaniard, was out of his seat like a jack-in-the-box and slammed his cards face down on the felt - Q♠[10s] for broadway, the nuts - Urban had K♠2♥. As he collected the pot Rodriguez clapped his hands and became generally excitable. Well he does have the chip lead now with 1,300,000, Urban still has around 800,000. -- NW

6.10pm: Torok gets some back
Overnight chip leader David Torok had slipped to below 450,000 but he just got some back from Keith Johnson. Torok opened to 32,500 from the button then Johnson three-bet to 63,000 from the small blind. Back on Torok he moved all-in and Johnson asked for a count. The dealer said it was 441,000 and Johnson took out his headphones, looked at the tournament clock a couple of times and then eventually folded. -- NW

5.50pm: Still 10 handed
Play has been 10 handed for a while now, if you'd like to know the counts of the remaining 10 click here. -- NW

5.40pm: Ioannis Prokopakis doubles up
He moved all-in for 161,000 with pocket queens and was called by Petr Kralicek who had A♥K♥, Veronica Kokaceva looked like she was also going to call but passed what she said was pocket jacks. The board of 9♦2♦8♠Q♠[10d] was a good one for the Greek, even more so given that Kokaceva would've made a straight had she called, after that hand Kralicek is down to around 300,000. -- NW

LEVEL UP: BLINDS 8,000-16,000, ante 2,000


5.20pm: Kamil Koska doubles up twice
He was down to just 31,000 after losing pots to Keith Johnson and Jaroslav Urban and moved all-in with K♥J♠ and Keith Johnson made the obligatory call with K♠3♥, the board of K♦7♠8♦A♦9♦ endured the Pole stayed alive.

The next hand he shoved and got it through uncontested and then on the next hand he moved all-in with A♥Q♣ over the top of a David Torok raise, the latter called with K♣8♣ and the board missed both players and Koska now has around 200,000. -- NW

5.05pm: Johnson makes a nice call
From the button Keith Johnson raised to 26,000 and Kamil Koska made the call from the big blind. The flop was J♣6♣8♠ and Johnson c-bet 23,000, call. The turn was the 6♠ and both players checked to see the 3♥ complete the board. After a minute or so Koska bet 65,000. Johnson asked the dealer to spread the pot had a long think and then made the call. Koska showed Q♣7♣ but Johnson had made a great call with K♥5♣ for just king high, which was good. -- NW
