Thomas Muehloecker was spotted not long ago in the field, but now his seat was empty and there was a big stack over in the six seat. Vladimir Troyanovskiy confirmed the departure of the Russian as follows:
A short stack opened to 600, Muehloecker three-bet to 1,600 and Enzo Del Piero in the small blind called. The short stack also filled up and the action then unfolded on the flop. Muehloecker bet 1,600 in the cutoff, Del Piero called, the short stack shoved 5,600 with pocket sixes and the Austrian called.
Del Piero then shoved with and Muehloecker's call with pocket queens found no further help.
