Govert Metaal raised to 5,000 and picked up a call by Atanas Malinov in the big blind. On the flop both checked and Malinov then bet the turn for 9,000. Metaal called to see the river and Malinov now fired a bet worth 23,000.
After some consideration, Metaal called and the Bulgarian mucked his cards immediately.
On tables nearby, Adrian Allain, Jan Bendik and Paolo Compagno are all having very solid days while Thomas Miller lost his remaining chips with kings to ace-queen.
