6.45pm: Rapp's delight
Stefan Rapp just managed to extricate himself from a difficult spot. The German was all in with 7♣7♦ against Markus Feurle's 9♥9♠ but the board came 7♥2♦4♣J♥K♠ and Rapp doubled to 100,000. Feurle was left with just 20,000 after the hand.

6.24pm: Over for Osterreich
Patrick Osterreich is the latest player to fall. He was all in with Q♠Q♣ against Ward de Bruyn's A♥K♦ but the board fell 8♦9♥6♥5♣A♠ to eliminate the Austrian player.

5.50pm: Blinds are now 2,500/5,000 ante 500

5.35pm: Chip leaders and notables
Zimnan Ziyard - 710,000
Mateusz Warowiec - 650,000
Blazej Przygorzewski - 565,000
David Kaufmann - 520,000
Sangkhadech Fremming - 460,000
Michael Eiler - 190,000
Pius Heinz - 100,000

5.16pm: Big names still around
Despite losing over 200 players today, there are still some well-known pros who are now in the money. Zimnan Ziyard is one of the chip leaders but Pius Heinz, Michael Eiler and Max Pescatori are all hoping for deep runs.

5.06pm: Never a table free
The Eureka "Mini" started a couple of hour ago and is understandably packed. It's at the point where as soon as a Main Event table breaks, the table immediately is filled by more players joining the 'Mini'. Over 450 players have already entered this smaller version of the Eureka main event.

4.50pm: Blinds are now 2,000/4,000 with a 500 ante

4.38pm: Double on the bubble
In the same hand as Sasa Lalos' bubble exit. Marko Kolega survived by successfully flipping A♠K♦ against Johann Johannsson's 9♣9♠ - the board came 2♠2♣A♣4♠3♣ for give Kolega a 70,000 chip pot.

Sasa Lalos bubbles Eureka Vienna

4.24pm: Sasa Lalos bubbles Eureka Vienna
Sasa Lalos of Austria had moved all in on a 9♣K♥4♠ board with K♠Q♦ only for Shlomi Elimeleh to instantly make the call. The Israeli turned over K♣9♦ for top two pair.

Elimeleh asked the dealer for nine. The 8♠ on the turn did not change anything and neither did the A♦ on the river. Elimeleh celebrated and everyone else was sent into the money.

4.05pm: Still on the bubble
With the sheer number of players still involved, hand-for-hand is obviously going fairly slowly so far. PokerStars qualifier Blazej Prygorzewski is the chip leader with around 680,000. EPT Loutraki winner Zimnan Ziyard is in second place with 625,000.

3.51pm: Atalay doubles up
Ozkan Atalay has just survived a real scare. He had check-raised all in on a 3♥J♦2♥ flop against a 38,000 bet from Ronny Voth - the German instantly calling. After all other hands were finished, the two players opened their holdings.

Atalay: A♠K♣
Voth: Q♦Q♠

The A♦ on the turn saw Atalay move ahead and he let out a cheer after the T♣ river. Voth was crippled as a result.

3.47pm: Bubble time
We are now playing hand-for-hand

3.41pm: Recent exits
