Hand #5: Nacho Barbero opened the pot to 25,000 only to have Tobias Wenker three-bet to 65,000 from two seats over.

The blinds released and Barbero contemplated for a few moments while shuffling chips before folding.

Hand #6: The action folded round to Jake Schwartz who raised to 24,000 from the hi-jack with only Simeon Naydenov making the call as the {4-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{A-Hearts} flop was checked by Naydenov before Schwartz bet out 24,000.

Naydenov made the call as the dealer dropped the {10-Hearts} on the turn and both players checked as the {4-Hearts} completed the board on the river and both players checked again.

Schwartz would table {7-}{7-}, but it would be Naydenov's {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades} for two pair that would see him capture the pot.

Hand #7: From the cutoff Jan Kropacek raised to 24,000 only to have Sumanth Reddy move all in from the button to force folds from the blinds and Kropacek.

Hand #8: Jake Schwartz opened the pot to 24,000 with Salman Behbehani making the call next to act along with Jan Kropacek from the cutoff before Mike Watson three-bet to 104,000 from the small blind.

Schwartz and Behbehani folded but Kropacek made the call to see the dealer spread a {J-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop. Watson contemplated for several moments before leading out for 77,000 to prompt a muck from Kropacek.

The players are taking a short break while they set up for the live stream.

Kevin Vandersmissen Eliminated in 11th Place ($18,407)

Kevin Vandersmissen
Kevin Vandersmissen

After an opening raise from Mike Watson, Kevin Vandersmissen moved all in over the top for the rest of his chips. Watson snap called and the two tabled their hands.

Vandersmissen: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Watson: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

The flop came down {4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{Q-Spades} giving Vandersmissen a slew of new outs. The turn was the {2-Diamonds}, not affecting Vandersmissen's outs at all. The river was the {J-Hearts} giving Vandersmissen a pair, but Watson the winning set.

"That's what you call too many outs," Vandersmissen said before collecting his payout slip and leaving the room.

The last ten players are now moving over to the secondary feature table for the final table.
