Pair of Aces for Holz

[user68268] • Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

From under the gun, Fedor Holz raised to 55,000. Paul Tedeschi made the call from the cutoff seat, and Nick Petrangelo called out of the big blind.

The three of them took the {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop, and Petrangelo checked. Holz bet 55,000 before Tedeschi raised to 135,000. Petrangelo stared Tedeschi down for a few moments, then folded. Holz called, though.

The turn was the {Q-Clubs}, and both players checked to see the {8-Diamonds} land on the river. Holz checked, and Tedeschi checked.

Holz turned over the {A-Spades}{5-Spades}, and Tedeschi mucked.

Jiachen Gong Eliminated in 28th Place (€28,500)

• Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Paul Tedeschi raised to 50,000 from the cutoff and it folded over to Jiachen Gong in the small blind. Gong announced a three-bet all in to 356,000 and Tedeschi called.

Tedeschi: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Gong: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The flop came down {5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}, keeping Gong's tens in the lead. The {7-Spades} hit the felt on the turn, meaning that Gong needed to dodge only an ace or a jack on the river in order to stay alive. Unfortunately for Gong, the {j-Spades} peeled off on fifth street and he was eliminated from play in 28th place.

• Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Mustapha Kanit raised to 55,000 from under the gun and it folded around to Onur Unsal in the small blind. He moved in over the top for just over 400,000 and action folded back to Kanit who called.

Kanit: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Unsal: {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

The board fell down {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}, giving Kanit a winning set of jacks. Unsal was eliminated from play in 29th place and Kanit brought his stack up to about 1.54 million.

Cards are in the air for the final day of the €10,300 High Roller.


30 Remain for Day 3 with Nearly €1 Million to the Winner

There's just one more day of poker left in Barcelona, and it promises to be the biggest one of all. On one side of the room, the €5,300 Main Event will play down to a winner and look to award one fortunate player more than €1.4 million in first-place prize money. On this side of the room, though, it's all about the €10,300 High Roller, which will return with the final 30 players from a jaw-dropping field of 506 entries.

Leading the way is Aliaksei Boika, who bagged up 1.985 million in chips after yesterday's action. Hailing from Belarus, Boika will look to bring the title back to his home country for a second year running after Ihar Soika was victorious last year. Boika is already making a near best for the largest live tournament score of his career ($44,950), and with the chip lead he's amassed, we like his chances of being to surpass that.

Other notables still remaining are Adrian Mateos, Ami Barer, Nick Petrangelo, Mustapha Kanit, Jani Sointula, and Mike McDonald.

With 30 players left, a player-friendly structure, big stacks, and big prizes up for grabs, Day 3 has all the ingredients to be a very long one. In anticipation of the length of Day 3, the tournament staff made an adjustment to the schedule late last night that added a level of play to Day 2 and shortened today's levels to 55 minutes.

Last year, Day 3 returned with 21 players and took just over 12 hours to conclude. The staff this year is estimating a finishing time of around 1 or 2 a.m. local time.

As for the start of the event, that will be at 12:30 p.m. local time. PokerNews will be your live coverage provider from the get go, so be sure to stay tuned for all of the poker action coming your way.
