From the small blind, Victorino Torres raised to 150,000. Chong Cheong made the call from the big blind and the two were set to play another pot with each other. After the first three community cards came down the {J-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}, Torres fired 150,000 and was called by his opponent.

The turn card put the {7-Spades} on the board and Torres cocked back to fire again. His bet was worth 400,000 and it was enough to get a fold from Cheong. Torres is now at a booming 4.7 million chips and it looks as if it's his tournament to lose.

Jeppe Drivsholm - 4th Place

Victorino Torres had the button and raised to 110,000. Jeppe Drivsholm moved all in from the small blind for 709,000. Torres took a minute and then made the call. He held the {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and was up against the {K-Hearts}{5-Hearts} of the shorter-stacked Drivsholm.

The flop came down {10-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and all Drivsholm could do was shake his head as there wasn't much there for him. The turn card pushed him one step closer to the door when the {J-Spades} rolled off. The river completed the board with the {8-Spades} and that was all she wrote for Drivsholm. He was eliminated in 4th place, leaving only three players left to play for the title. Torres now has a big lead on the other two and we'll have the stack count coming shortly.
