Gruissem Stays Active

John Juanda is having a hard time against the two Germans on his left who are net letting go of their hands easily. He just raised to 90,000 from the button, and Philipp Gruissem three-bet to 240,000 from the small blind. Juanda tanked for a bit, and called.

The flop brought out {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Gruissem fired out 230,000. Juanda took about a minute, but eventually he threw his cards towards the muck.

"No move?" Gruissem smiled as he raked in this pot. Gruissem is close to having two million while Juanda still has the chip lead.

John Juanda raised to 60,000 pre flop, and Steve O'Dwyer moved all in over the top for right around 450,000. The action was folded back to Juanda who made the call.

John Juanda: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Steve O'Dwyer: {K-Spades}{10-Spades}

The flop brought {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, putting O'Dwyer in great shape to double up. Unfortunately for him the {A-Hearts} hit the turn, and now he was looking to catch a ten or a jack in order to survive. The river brought the {5-Diamonds}, and O'Dwyer's tournament run was over. Just six players remain, as Juanda extended his chip lead.

From early position, Richard Yong opened with a raise to 80,000. Action then folded to David Benefield on the button, and he reraised all in for 220,000. When play got back to Yong, he quickly tossed in the chips to make the call.

Yong held the {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} and was in a dominating position to knock out Benefield who held the {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}. On the flop, both players paired when the {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} fell, but it was Yong's kicker that kept him in front. From there, the turn brought the {5-Spades} and river the {2-Spades} to finish things off.

Benefield was eliminated in eighth place, but did earn €115,000 for his finish.
