6.50pm: Dinner break
ElkY takes the last hand against Will Molson to complete level 16. Players are now on a one hour dinner break. When they return the blinds will increase to 10,000-20,000 with a 2,000 running ante.
It looks like a hand that no one wants to belong to. On a flop of 6h-7h-7d Seiver, ElkY and Gerasimova check and do the same on the Ad turn. On the Jh river Seiver bets 150,000. ElkY gets out but Gerasimova calls showing top two pairs. Seiver though had made a flush with Th-3h taking down the pot.

6.20pm: Team PokerStars Pro Humberto Brenes of Costa Rica is eliminated in fifth place for $70,800.
Humberto Brenes moves all-in for 95,500 holding K-4. He waits and gets a call from Scott Seiver who has Kh-Th. The chanting begins from the Costa Rican section, calling for a four. Remarkably they get one on a 2h-4s-3s flop. The noise grows even louder as Brenes looks likely to double up but the turn comes 7h giving Seiver a flush draw. The pandemonium is complete when the 3h hits the river, reversing the celebrations and sending Seiver in a victory lap around the table, arms out stretched, joy expressed by a mad scream. Brenes and Seiver embrace but we lose the Team PokerStars Pro.
6.12pm: Eli Elezra of the United States is eliminated in sixth place for $68,500
Elezra moves all in from under-the-gun with pocket fives and is called by Gerasimov with pocket queens. The flop comes 6s-4s-8s giving hope to Elezra but that's the last of it.
6.05pm: ElkY the boss
ElkY checks a Ts-8h-Qd flop behind Gerasimov's check but bets the Kh turn, pushing the Russian off the hand.
5.55pm: First hand of the level
Play continues in the new level with Eli Elezra betting 55,000 on a board of 5d-Ts-4d-6h only for Molson to re-raise all-in for 274,500, pushing him off the pot.
