Simon Lofberg, who had previously doubled through Sam Chartier, has become the next chip millionaire. On the same table, Nuno Capucho, who had been stalling on the bubble one day ago, is on the best way to get there too, while Kimmo Kurko and Sam Chartier were sent to the rail in consecutive hands.
First, Lofberg raised from early position and Kurko shoved from the button with his below-average stack, Lofberg called.
The board ran out and Kurko, who had finished second in this very event in Season 10, was drawing dead on the turn already.
One hand later, Lofberg raised again, to 18,000, and Chartier shoved from the button for 155,000 to receive a quick call.
There was no help on the board of and Chartier also headed to the rail.
