Most of the remaining players had gone on break but two remained behind, battling their blinds. The battle ended with the elimination of our final remaining former EPT champion, David Vamplew.

The action folded around to the Scot in the small blind and he raised to 47,000. Olivier Busquet peeled to see an {8-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} flop where he called a 50,000 c-bet.

The turn came {k-Spades} and Vamplew fired again, for 115,000. Busquet pondered, as he likes to do, before he announced he was all-in for 525,000. Vamplew looked pained, took some time himself, and called all-in for 490,000 with {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for a turned top pair.

Busquet was ahead though with {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a flopped two pair. The river came {a-Hearts} and that sealed Vamplew's fate.

The players will now be drawn on to one table of nine before play ends for the day.

Wrang Continues To Add To His Stack

[user169806] • Nivo 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

From the cutoff seat David Vamplew made it 40,000 to play and was initially called by Olivier Busquet on the button. The small blind got out of the way but Jannick Wrang, who has gone on somewhat of a tear at the moment, squeezed to 104,000.

This was enough to fold out Vamplew but Busquet sat figuring out what his next move should be. After not too much thinking time he decided that the best course of action was to fold.

Wrang And Vamplew Tangle

[user169806] • Nivo 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Jannick Wrang, the PokerStars qualifier, opened from under the gun then called David Vamplew's button three-bet to what looked like 91,000. The dealer got busy putting out the {7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{K-Hearts} flop and both players opted to check.

The passivity continued on the {J-Hearts} turn as both players folded again but the {7-Hearts} river saw Wrang bet 132,000 and Vamplew was not prepared to pay this and he got out of the way.

Ramin Hajiyev and Balazs Botond have clashed on a few occasions today and we felt as if a big clash was coming. It came and Hajiyev was sent packing in a big pot.

Jannick Wrang opened from the hijack and Botond called from the button before Hajiyev squeezed from the big blind. Wrang folded but Botond moved all-in and Hajiyev called off his 730,000 chip stack.

Hajiyev: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Botond: {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}

The flop fell {9-Clubs}{2-Spades}{j-Clubs} and Boteond looked at the dealer and said, "Dealer, down. Like a five."

The Hungarian asked and he received as the turn came {5-Hearts} before the river matched as the {5-Diamonds}.

Yet another player has been busted out here in the main event, Giuseppe Biancouiso becoming the 14th place finisher.

He three-bet all-in over the top of Fabrice Soulier's opening raise from the cutoff and flipped over {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} which were in great shape against the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}. Biancouiso could not bear to watch and he left the table, meaning he missed the flop coming down {Q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. The {9-Diamonds} saw Biancouiso come back to the table to pick up his World Series of Poker circuit ring and when the {2-Clubs} fell on the river it was all over for the Italian and Soulier is amongst the chip leaders.

Primoz Adamie has been eliminated from the EPT Campione Main Event at the hands of Jannick Wrang.

We joined the action on the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} flop when Adamie lead from the small blind for 80,000. Wrang made the call and it was off to the {6-Clubs} turn. Adamie now checked, Wrang fired a bet of 120,000 and Adamie called. The final community card was the {3-Clubs} and Adamie almost instantly moved all and Wrang jumped out of his skin and called.

Adamie: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Wrang: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} - for quads!

We are down to 14 in the Main Event
