Rosen Pole-Axed

Jamie Rosen is down to 18,000 chips after he had pocket aces cracked by the pocket kings of Michal Polchlopek.

Polchlopek opened to 2,500, Rosen raised to 6,000 and called after he faced a four-bet to 14,500.

The flop came {k-}{q-}{2-} and Rosen called a 12,000 bet from Polchlopek. The turn came {2-} and Rosen raised to 40,000 and called a shove after Polchlopek led for a relatively small 10,000.

Rosen tabled his aces but was faced with a set of kings. The river bricked and Polchlopek raked in the 150,000 pot.

New Chip Leader Emerges in Monster Pot

Radoslaw Kopec is the new chip leader of the tournament after he cracked the over-pair of Peco "The Magician" Stojanovski.

Kopec opened to 2,700 from early position to face a three-bet to 6,200 from Stojanovski in the cut-off. Kopec wasn't put off and put in a four-bet to 13,100. Stojanovski, by this stage, was leaning right over the table, keen to see what the amount was. Kopec wasn't paying too much attention to his opponent, instead his focus was on the baize and the chips.

He soon realised Stojanovski's intentions as another raise came, up to 30,000. This didn't deter Kopec and he quickly announced all-in. Stojanovski snap called to create a six-figure pot.

Stojanovski: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Kopec: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}

The board ran {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} to make a set for Kopec. Stojanovski was visibly gutted but took it well and wished his opponents the best of luck.

Kastle Crumbles Under the Bounty Pressure

Casey Kastle had a good ride after rivering a two-outer in the first level to survive, but he failed to come from behind again versus Sebastien Pagana, and busted.

Al the chips went in on a queen high board containing two spades. Pagana tabled {k-}{q-}, ahead of Kastle's {j-Spades}{10-Spades}. The board ran out blank and Pagana gratefully accepting the bounty lanyard.

Bounties Bust Segal


Mark Segal had the chance to triple-up against Vesko Zmukic and Sandeep Pulusani - both of whom have bounties on their head.

The three players got it all in preflop and when they turned their hands over, this is how they shaped up.

Vesko Zmukic: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Sandeep Pulusani: {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Mark Segal: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Zmukic was all in for only 10,000 and his hand held up, while Pulusani took down the side pot, eliminating Segal.

Mangelakis Chopped in Half by Case Queen

Michael Mangelakis hit top pair in a three-way all-in pot but it was no good as his two opponents had him out-kicked, both holding the same hand. Harry Demetriou and Vesko Zmukic were his two opponents and they chopped his stack to stay alive after all the chips went in pre flop.

Demetriou: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Zmukic: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}
Mangelakis: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

The board ran {q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{8-Diamonds} to see the case king come out.
