Max Lykov Doubles Up Through Heinzelmann

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Max Heinzelmann is losing pot after pot at the moment.

He just raised it up on the button to 200,000 and Max Lykov moved all-in from the big blind for 1,600,000. Heinzelmann super-snap-called and we had a showdown.

Heinzelmann{4-Diamonds} {4-Spades}
Lykov{6-Diamonds} {6-Spades}

Lykov doubles up and he is still in contention to be our double EPT winner.

Liu Takes Another, Smaller, Chunk Out of Heinzelmann

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Xuan Liu min-raised under the gun and Max Heinzelmann called from the big blind to see a {q-Spades}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop, which he checked. He called the 250,000 continuation bet from Liu, before checking the {2-Diamonds} turn and {9-Diamonds} river as well. Both times Liu checked behind, and turned over {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Heinzelmann showed {8-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for a flopped straight draw that had gone nowhere, and Liu took the pot.

Liu Rivers Heinzelmann

Max Heinzelmann had opened preflop and then called Xuan Liu's 3-bet to see a flop of {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, Heinzelmann checked and then called a bet of 530,000 from his opponent. Both checked the {9-Diamonds} turn and the river was the {10-Clubs} - Heinzelmann now bet 1,305,000 only for Liu to click it back to him, making it 2,610,000. The commentators debated that she had back-doored into something and when Heinzelmann made the call, we saw she had - turning over {k-Hearts}{q-Spades} for the rivered nut straight.

Liu has taken a big chunk of Heinzelmann's stack with that pot.

Xuan Liu ca 11,320,000 3,715,000
Max Heinzelmann 4,200,000 -3,610,000

The action folded around to Xuan Liu in the small blind. Given her opponent in the big blind was short stacked her two options were to fold or shove. She decided to shove and Francesco de Vivo decided to call.

It was the battle of the trash.

Liu{j-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}
de Vivo{q-Spades} {9-Hearts}

Board: {4-Hearts} {2-Spades} {7-Spades} {a-Clubs} {5-Clubs}

Within the blink of an eye we have lost all of our Italians.

Massimiliano Manigrasso has just been eliminated in 6th place and it was a cooler. Manigrasso raised to 275,000 and Rupert Elder popped it up to 625,000 from the button. Manigrasso immediately moved all-in and Elder immediately called. When Manigrasso saw the cards of Elder he was distraught.

Manigrasso{q-Clubs} {q-Diamonds}
Elder{k-Spades} {k-Clubs}

Board: {2-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {j-Spades} {7-Clubs}

Manigrasso leaves us and Elder is our huge chip leader.

Xuan Liu raised to 200,000 and Costantino Russo made the all in move. It was passed back to Liu and the young Canadian quickly made the call.

Liu: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Russo: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}

The door card was the {A-Clubs} then followed by a board of {6-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades}{10-Spades}, and Liu has solidified her place in 3rd place. Russo goes home with €125,000

More for Massimiliano

[user46392] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Francesco De Vivo opened in early position and fellow countryman (and fellow relative short stack) Massimiliano Manigrasso called on the button to see a {j-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop. De Vivo checked to Manigrasso who bet 285,000 and De Vivo called, before both checked down the {5-Spades} turn and {9-Hearts} river. Maingrasso revealed a surprisingly premium {q-Spades}{10-Spades} for top pair, and it was good enough to take the pot.
