Thomas De Rooij raised to 225,000 from the cutoff and Alexandru Baron moved all in from one seat over. The action folded back to De Rooij, and he asked for a count.

Once it was determined to be 1,425,000, he tossed in the obligatory chip and a coin flip was about to unfold while the camera team gathered around the outer table.

Baron: {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
De Rooij: {A-Spades}{8-Hearts}

While the {J-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop changed nothing, the {A-Hearts} on the turn improved De Rooij to a pair of aces. A blank {6-Clubs} river sent Baron to the rail and one player will now be moved from the feature table to balance the last 10 players on two tables.

At nine, they will combine for the unofficial final table, and the goal of the day is to reach the final six.

Alexandru Baron Pays Off Thomas De Rooij

[user38873] • Nivo 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

After a series of small hands on the outer table without any significant action, Alexandru Baron raised to 225,000 from under the gun. Thomas De Rooij called in the big blind and the flop came {Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}.

De Rooij checked, Baron bet 250,000 and the Dutchman called. The {2-Spades} turn went check, check and De Rooij then bet the {3-Hearts} river for 350,000. Baron looked over at his table neighbor and took more than a minute before calling. De Rooij showed the {8-Hearts}{7-Spades} and that won the pot.

Sebastian Malec saw Morten Mortensen open to 225,000 and pinged it to 600,000. Mortensen called and the two men saw a flop of {7-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Malec, a former child chess prodigy made a simple move of c-betting 560,000 and that was enough to rake a big pot without too much play.

Big Pot for Malone

[user38873] • Nivo 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Harcharan Dogra Dogra raised to 230,000 from the cutoff and Zorlu Er called in the small blind, as did Stephen Malone in the big blind. On the {6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop, the action checked to Dogra Dogra and he bet 125,000. Both opponents called and the {5-Spades} turn saw no betting action.

Er bet the {6-Hearts} river for 500,000 and Malone called, Dogra Dogra folded. Er flashed {K-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for two pair with a king kicker, but Malone had that beat with the {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Er nodded and tapped the table, while Malone walked over to his Irish rail before the next hand kicked off.

Uri Reichenstein made it 225,000 to play from under the gun, and Andreas Chalkiadakis raised to 520,000 from the cut off. Reichenstein called and saw a flop of {3-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

Reichenstein led the turn {J-Clubs} for 440,000, but got a call, so checked the river of {10-Diamonds} with {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Chalkiadakis turned over {K-}{K-} for the best hand.

Reichenstein is still comfortable, but Chalkiadakis is second in chips in the room.

Adam Owen Out in Front

Adam Owen
Adam Owen

Adam Owen may be known for mixed games, but he's performing very well at No Limit right now on the feature table. We just saw a hand where he raised pre-flop then checked down a board of {7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs} until pounding 500,00 on the river against Morten Mortensen, the only other player in the hand.

Mortensen tossed it away and that gives Adam Owen 8.7m in chips.

We caught up with him at the break and he confirmed that his phone is going into overdrive.

"Friends are spamming me, but it's all good. I just hope I can make the final table."

That requires four players to bust, but Owen is the leader right now. He may well be doing that eliminating himself.
