Breaking Things

[user66118] • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

During the first partial level of Day 5, we bid farewell to Phil Ivey and Karim Jomeen, shrinking our field to the final ten.

Ivey was the victim of a bit of a cooler in a battle of the blinds when he raise-called with ace-queen. Yann Dion had him dominated with ace-king, and a board full of blanks sent Ivey off with a A$100,000 consolation prize.

Jomeen got most of his money in good with a chance at a knockout, flopping top pair with jack-eight. Oliver Speidel got himself at-risk with just two overcards, and he managed to bink a better pair on the river to cripple Jomeen. He was eliminated a few hands later when Lee Nelson's jack-ten bested his ace-nine to send him to the rail in eleventh place.

That's how we've gotten from twelve to ten, and our finalists are off for a 20-minute break.
