Jaxon • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Day 3 has begun at a fast and furious pace with shouts of "all-in", "call" and "seat open" being the dominant background noise along with the usual chip shuffling.

While many of the shorter stacks are already doubling up, just as many are leaving the tournament arena. One player to have his day cut early was Romania's Elvis Petcu who got his short stack all in on the flop of {J-Spades}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} against Slovakia's Tomas Kubaliak.

Kubaliak, who was holding {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}, or middle pair, was ahead of Petcu who was holding {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} and his hand improved even further to a flush after the {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} completed the board. Petcu walked away with a minimum cash of €7,580, who Kubaliak's stack is a little more than he started the day with at around 240,000.
