The action is relatively aggressive so far, possibly due to the fact that the players are close to 200bb deep. There aren't a lot of showdowns being seen right now, but there is plenty of betting and raising.

We picked up this pot between Marvin Rettenmaier and Warwick Mirzikinian on the flop.

The board was showing {3-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {8-Clubs}, and Rettenmaier checked. Mirzikinian bet 14,000, but the check-raise came from the German as he slid out 38,500 total. Mirzikinian called.

The two men checked through the {A-Clubs} turn, but Rettenmaier retook the lead when the {9-Spades} rivered. He carefully stacked 53,500 chips into the pot. Mirzikinian needed a couple minutes to deliberate, but he finally let a frustrated look cross his face as he fingered his cards into the muck.

Geyer Carrying On

Aubin Cazals faced a raise to 30,000 from Adam Geyer after he tried to make it 10,000 to see a flop. Cazals completed the call and a {4-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop was exposed to both players. It was here that Geyerbet out 27,000. A call was made by Cazals and we were off to fourth street.

A {j-Clubs} on the turn brought two checks, and a {4-Clubs} river allowed two more passes. It was here that Geyer flipped over {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} for a full house fours over threes, which was enough as Cazals mucked his whole cards.

Rettenmaier Gains an Early Edge

Marvin Rettenmaier made it 8,500 to go from the button, and Warwick Mirzikinian defended his big blind. The flop brought out {3-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs} {5-Clubs}, and the two men checked through to the {8-Clubs} turn. Now Mirzikinian led out into the pot with 30,000, and Rettemnaier called to see the last card.

It was the {8-Diamonds}. Mirzikinian slowed back down with another check, and Rettenmaier doesn't need to be told twice. He bet 46,500, and Mirzikinian called.

"Queen," Rettenmaier announced, showing up {Q-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds}. It was good, and it's give him an edge of about 200,000 chips as he climbs close to 900,000.

Adam Geyer is the last man to advance for the second round in a row.

On the final hand, Anthony Gargano shoved about 100,000 into the middle with {5-Spades} {6-Spades}. Adam Geyer's {Q-Diamonds} {J-Spades} was good enough to call with, and his hand would hold strong.

The board ran out {9-Diamonds} {8-Spades} {4-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs}, and that's the end of the road for Anthony Gargano. He'll walk away with close to $25,000, while Geyer and the other seven survivors are guaranteed more than $60,000 for their spot in the Elite Eight.

Geyer Smashes a Double

It was a limped pot that saw Adam Geyer and Anthony Gargano take a friendly {2-Hearts} {7-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} flop. Gargano was in position, and Geyer let him bet 10,000 before check-raising to 27,000. Gargano's answer was a covering all-in shove. That sunk Geyer into his chair a bit, and he shook his head back and forth as he pondered the predicament. After some time, he called off his last 294,500 chips to put himself at risk.

Gargano: {A-Hearts} {2-Clubs}
Geyer: {Q-Diamonds} {2-Spades}

Geyer had flopped top and bottom, and he needed to fade the aces and hearts left in the deck. The turn was scary but safe — the {10-Diamonds}. The river brought the {2-Diamonds} and a full house for Geyer, and he's found a monster double. It moves him up over 600,000, and Gargano is left in some trouble with just over 15bb.
