1:30am: Dominico Gala eliminated in ninth place (€9,920)
Level 27 Blinds 30,000/60,000 (10,000 ante)

The final table is set!

Pre-flop Dominico Gala opened to 130,000 on the button and Ivan Luca called from the big blind. On the 9♠T♣T♥ flop Gala c-bet 110,000, Luca check-raised 300,000 total and Gala smooth called fairly quickly.

On the 3♠ turn Luca bet 535,000 and Gala called. The pot was now 2,050,000 and Gala had just 1,000,000 back. On the 9♣ river Luca moved all-in and Gala tanked for seven minutes before eventually calling.

Luca: T♠7♣
Gala: Q♣Q♥

Gala couldn't get away from the overpair and Luca won a massive pot and will start tomorrow's final table as the chip leader.

Gala - gone in ninth


1:10am: No one wants to be the photo bubble
Level 26 Blinds 25,000/50,000 (5,000 ante)

Whilst there's over €2,600 between the 9th and 8th place payouts there's also the matter of missing out on the final table photograph!

It's been fairly cagey stuff so far at the unofficial final table. David Urban and Dominico Gala have been the most active players. Perhaps the most interesting thing to happen is the commentators digging out Gala for ordering a drink and not tipping.

"You've won at least €9,920 you could at least tip," they said.

0:50am: Gala takes some from Urban
Level 26 Blinds 25,000/50,000 (5,000 ante)

David Urban and Dominico Gala reached the river of a Q♣5♣K♦3♥T♠ board and Urban bet 345,000 - almost a pot sized bet. Gala went into the tank and then called with A♦T♣. Urban mucked his hand, he slips to 1,685,000 whilst Gala is up to 2,485,000.

00:40am: The unofficial final table has started
Level 26 Blinds 25,000/50,000 (5,000 ante)

The nine remaining players are back in their seats and action is under way.

Level 26 Blinds 25,000/50,000 (5,000 ante)

The unofficial final table is set!

David Urban opened to 110,000 on the button and then called when Andres Viola moved all-in for 595,000 from the big blind.

Urban: A♦T♠
Viola: A♣9♠

The K♣Q♠J♥ flop meant Urban flopped broadway and the K♥ turn and Q♠ river kept him in front.

They'll now be a short delay whilst they do a redraw of the final nine.

Andres Viola

0:03am: Andres Viola doubles through Mick Heder
Level 26 Blinds 25,000/50,000 (5,000 ante)

After loisng a pot to David Urban to slip to 295,000 Andres Viola moved all-in from the small blind with A♠A♥ and Mick Heder called from the big blind with A♦5♦. The board ran T♦T♥8♥T♠9♠ and Viola got his double up. He's up to 650,000, Heder drops to 1,500,000 and Urban has 1,400,000

11:45pm: Rene Kodlin eliminated in 11th Place (€8,070)
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

Down to 10!

The exit happened on the feature table with Hannes Speiser opening to 85,000 and then calling Rene Kodlin's shove of 410,000.

Kodlin: K♦T♥
Speiser: K♥Q♣

A 7♥4♠2♠4♦J♦ board meant Speiser's hand held to boost him to 1,350,000 whilst Kodlin collected €8,070 for his efforts this week.

With one more exit we'll be down to the unofficial final table of nine.

eureka6_rozvadov_day3_robert_kodlin.jpg

Rene Kodlin - 11th place for him


11:30pm: Peter Siemund doubles through Robert Kokoska
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

Big hands, big pot and not an exaggerated tank in sight. Great poker!

Peter Siemund opened to 85,000 from the cutoff, Robert Kokoska three-bet to 205,000 from the small blind, Siemund moved all-in, Kokoska asked for a count (about one million) and then called. This took about 30 seconds total.

Siemund: A♠K♣
Kokoska: A♦Q♠

A 4♠J♥3♣6♣K♦ board doubled Siemund to about 2,300,000 (he was all-in for 1,145,000) and saw Kokoska drop to 580,000.

11:25pm: Martin Ilavksy eliminated in 12th place (€6,950)
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

Down to just 200,000 Martin Ilavsky moved all-in from the small blind with J♦7♣ and Ivan Luca snapped him off with A♣4♦

A K♣3♠2♥T♣9♦ board means we lose Ilavsky in 12th place and Luca is up to 2,710,000.

eureka6_rozvadov_day3_martin_ilavsky.jpg

Ilavksy's out in 12th

11:15pm: Gala's turn to double with aces
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

A few hands after losing a big pot to aces, Domenico Gala got a double up with them. Ivan Luca opened from the hijack wih J♣J♦, Gala just called with A♥A♠ from the small blind and Maria Lampropoulos smooth called from the big blind. On the 8♣2♠8♠ flop Luca c-bet 115,000 and Gala was the only caller.

The 3♦ turn checked through and the T♣ completed the board. Gala checked again and instantly called when Luca jammed for 405,000 He got a full double up to 1,300,000, whilst Luca slips to 2,450,000.

11:05pm: Speiser doubles with aces again
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

Hannes Speiser sure loves aces. He doubled through Andres Viola with them earlier and just repeated the trick in a hand against Domenico Gala.

Gala had A♠Q♠ to Speiser's A♣A♥ and although the A♦T♠5♥T♣Q♣ board hit both players it hit Speiser harder. He was all-in for 575,000 so now has around 1,200,000 whilst Gala is down to about 750,000.

10:56pm: Daniel Rose eliminated in 13th place (€ 6,950)
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

They say there's a curse of the chip leader and 13 was definitely unlucky for start of day chip boss David Rose as he's just been knocked out in 13th place.

He was down to just over 400,000 and moved all-in from under-the-gun with K♦Q♣. David Urban re-raised with A♣K♥ and everyone else folded. The A♠5♥2♦6♠Q♥ board meant the dominating hand held and Rose was sent to the rail. Meanwhile Urban is up to 1,500,000.

10:50pm: 13 into eight is the plan
Level 25 - Blinds 20,000/40,000 (5,000 ante)

The 13 remaining players are back in their seats. The plan is to get to the final table of eight tonight.

Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

On the final hand before the players went on a 45-minute dinner break there was a big hand between Peter Siemund and Hannes Speiser at the outer table

The former moved all-in from the cutoff for 538,000 with 2♦2♠ and Hannes Speiser put him at risk holidng ace-king. The T♠7♣5♦T♣8♥ board kept the ducks in front and Speiser drops to around 650,000 whilst Siemund is up to 1,150,000.

9:58pm: Fabian Schaack eliminated in 14th Place (€6,280)
Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

Live and die on the river...

After Stoyan Stefanov opened to 60,000, Fabian Schaack moved all-in for about 500,000 from the small blind. Mick Heder was in the big blind and he re-shoved, forcing Stefanov to fold.

Heder: A♦J♠
Schaack: A♣Q♦

The T♣8♠3♠6♠J♣ board meant Heder hit his kicker on the river to send Schaack out in 14th. Heder is up to 1,650,000 after that hand.

Hannes Speiser opened 7♥7♦ to 70k, Maria called with J♦J♥, Dragoslav Timarac then pushed with 7♠7♣ for 472k, Ivan Luca re-raised all-in with A♦K♦ for 2.5m and both Hannes and Lampropoulos folded.

The board was Q♣A♥6♠5♥6♣, Timarac was eliminated and Luca climbed to 3.2m

Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

EPT regular Grzegorz Wyraz is out in 16th place and his chips have gone to David Urban. The Pole opened, Urban shoved and Wyraz called all-in for about 480,000.

Wyraz: A♦Q♥
Urban: 7♦7♠

A K♣J♦6♠ flop gave Wyraz a gutshot to go with his overcards but he missed the J♠ turn and 4♠ river. Urban is now up to 1,400,000.

9:20pm: Aces cracked...again
Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

We've seen a lot of aces getting crack today and Daniel Rose was the latest victim. Mick Heder shoved from the cutoff for 484,000 with [KdJ♥ and Rose called from the small blind with A♣A♦.

The T♥7♣5♥2♥3♥ board made Heder a flush and saw Rose let out a stream of expletives. He's down to 350,000 whilst Heder is up to 1,020,000.

At the same time this happened Patrick Wolff was eliminated at the feature table meaning we're down to 16 players. They'll be a short break whilst they redraw the final 16 and set up the new feature table.

In Wolff's exit hand he shoved for 177,000 with A♥J♠ from the hijack and Rene Kodlin called with Q♣Q♠ on the button. A 9♦K♥6♦4♠2♥ board kept Kodlin in front.

9:17pm: Oliver Heppchen eliminated in 18th place
Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

Down to just 236,000 Oliver Heppchen moved all-in from under-the-gun with A♦6♣. He picked up a call from Ivan Luca and the Argentinian had him dominated with A♣J♦.

The K♠5♦2♠K♥Q♦ board kept Luca in front and he's up to 2,200,000 now.

9:15pm: Big hands, small pot
Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

This pot could've played out so much differently and it most cases would've been a huge pot.

From under-the-gun Daniel Rose raised to 75,000, Maria Lampropoulos smooth called from the cutoff and Robert Kokoska came along from the big blind.

The flop was a tasty looking Q♥T♦A♥, the action was checked to Lampropoulos and her bet of 100,000 was enough to win the pot. Rose showed K♠K♣ as he folded and Lampropoulos opened A♣K♦ as she took the pot.

She's up to 2,175,000, whilst Rose drops to 800,000.

9:05pm: Stefanov on a surge
Level 24 - Blinds 15,000/30,000 (4,000 ante)

A short time ago Stoyan Stefanov had a sub 10 big blind stack. Now he's got almost 2,000,0000!

A big pot against ivan Luca gave the biggest boost to his stack. By thte time the two of them reached the river of a 9♦8♦8♥J♠A♦ river there was around 340,000 in the middle. The Argentinian checked the action over to Stefanov and he bet 175,000. After a bit of tank time Luca check-raised to 350,000 and Stefanov thought for a little while before calling.

Luca had 8♣6♦ but Stefanov had made a straight with Q♠T♦. Both have about 1,900,000 now.

8:50pm: Speiser doubles with aces
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

Andres Viola opend to 50,000 from the button and Hannes Speiser shoved all-in for 525,000 from the big blind. "Count please," said Viola. "If it's less than 30 big blinds I'm calling."

It was and he did:

Speiser: A♦A♠
Viola: T♥T♦

The 8♠5♥7♥9♣4♠ board kept the aces in front and Speiser doubled to 1,100,000 whilst Viola slips to 320,000.

8:40pm: Stoyan Stefanov doubles through Ivan Luca
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

Is there a chink in Ivan Luca's armory? He just lost a pot to double up Stoyan Stefanov to lose a little under 12 big blinds.

Luca opened to 48,000 from the hijack with Q♣T♣ and Stefanov shoved for 287,000 total with A♣J♥. It folded back to Luca and he thought for about 90 seconds before calling.

The 4♦5♠K♣J♦6♥ board favoured Stefanov and he doubled to around 600,000. Luca still has lots though, about 2,300,000 to be precise.

8:35pm: Martin Kristeller's aces cracked; out in 19th
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

What goes around comes around, I guess. Earlier today Martin Kristeller cracked kings with 9♦7♦ and he's just had his aces cracked to exit the tournament in 19th place.

Pre-flop Robert Kokoska opened to 50,000, Kristeller three-bet to 130,000 and Kokoska smooth called. On the J♠3♥9♠ flop Kokoska checked to Kristeller, he bet 160,000, Kokoska check-raised to 325,000 total, Kristeller moved all-in for around 800,000 and Kokoska called.

Kristeller: A♠A♣
Kokoska: K♠Q♠

The 7♠ completed Kokoska's flush and the meaningless 4♥ fell on the river. The stacks were counted down and Kokoska had Kristeller covered. He's up to 2,350,000 after that hand.

8:25pm: Darius Beres busts in 20th
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

Some action!

Dragoslav Timarac opened to 50,000 with A♠J♣ and Darius Beres pushed from the small blind for 217,000 with A♦8♠. Call from Timarac.

The board ran 7♠A♣4♠J♦K♣ to send Beres home with a cheque for €4,960 and boost Timarac's stack to 770,000.

8:15pm: All quiet on the outer tables
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

Nothing much to report in the way of action from the outer tables. There was a flurry of action in the opening four levels, but the pace of play has slowed during level 23.

8pm: Karol Radomski eliminated in 21st place
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

It took about ten minutes into level 23 before we had any significant action but when we did it resulted in an exit.

Martin Kristeller opened to 35,000 from the cutoff, Karol Radomski then moved all-in from the button for 56,000 total. Maria Lampropoulos and Hannes Speiser both called from the blinds and Kristeller put in the extra to create a four-way pot.

The three active players checked down the 6♦T♥Q♠4♦Q♥ board, Radomski had A♣J♥ but Kristeller's pocket sevens were the best hand and Radomski was eliminated.

6:45pm: 40 minute delay due to live stream
Level 23 - Blinds 12,000/24,000 (3,000 ante)

Ok bit of a weird one this but stay with us. There's now a feature table and a live stream, which is on a 30 minute delay as it's a cards-up stream. So that will start at roughly 7:30 CET and can be watched here..

So to avoid spoilers we'll be blogging the outer tables on a 40 minute delay too. Essentially we'll note down the time a hand takes place and then write it up but publish it 40 minutes later.

Still with us? Good.
