The five players' stacks are now so close that every hand seems to see the momentum shift, and there is a feeling inside the Rio that this could be a pivotal period of poker.

Hand #45: Joao Vieira raised to 350,000 from the hijack and the others folded.

Hand #46: Jamie O'Connor raised to 320,000 from the button Vieira called from the big blind. The flop was dealt {k-Clubs}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Vieira checked. O´Connor continued with a bet of 250,000. Vieira got out of the way.

Hand #47: Pierre Calamusa raised from the button as he pushed 375,000 forward. Small blind Vieira three-bet all in for effectively 3,840,000 and both big blind Joe Cada and Calamusa folded their hand.

Hand #48: O'Connor raised to 320,000 and Olivier Busquet called from the big blind. The flop fell {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and Busquet check-called a bet of 250,000 from O'Connor.

The {a-Diamonds} was dealt on the turn and both players checked. The {8-Clubs} was dealt on the river. Busquet led out with a bet of 375,000 and O'Connor took his time to end up folding.

Hand #49: Joe Cada raised to 350,000 and Busquet three-bet all in from the small blind. O'Connor folded, but Cada quickly called.

Joe Cada: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Olivier Busquet: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

The board ran out {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and Cada secured a double up that propelled him into the chip lead. By contrast, Olivier Busquet was left with less than five big blinds.
