The river was the {Q-Spades} and Jetten fired 160,000. Dratsas folded and Jetten picked up the pot to move up to 1.55 million. Dratsas dropped to 1.35 million.

Action folded around the table to Steve Friedlander on the button who opened with a raise to 40,000. Peter Jetten flatted from the small blind (holding pocket aces) and when the action reached Jurgen Wenigwieser in the big, he three-bet to 140,000. Friedlander got out of their way and Jetten moved all in over the top for 765,000. Wenigwieser made the call for less (670,000) and the following showdown ensued:

Wenigwieser: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}
Jetten: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}

The board then filled out {2-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Jetten's aces held up to send Wenigwieser to the rail in 13th place.

After the hand, Jetten stacked up 1.38 million in chips.

Sorel's Holy Shoes

Holy Moly
Holy Moly
Should chip leader Sorel Mizzi take down the 2010 Aussie Millions Main Event championship tomorrow afternoon, he'd be able to afford enough pairs of shoes to fill the MCG, and by the look of it, he could afford to keep a pair or two for himself.

Your chip leader is currently sitting with 3.3 million in chips.

Dratsas Miztified

Kosmas Dratsas completed out of the small blind and Sorel Mizzi raised from the big blind to 50,000. Dratsas made the call.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and Dratsas checked. Mizzi fired 60,000 before Dratsas check-raised to 160,000. Mizzi made the call.

The turn was the {K-Diamonds} and Dratsas fired 170,000. Mizzi called.

The {J-Clubs} landed on the river and Dratsas checked. Mizzi fired a big 400,000. Dratsas tanked with 1.3 million left in his stack. After a few minutes, he mucked his hand, mumbling that he didn't know if two pair was good.

Mizzi scooped the pot and moved up to 3.3 million. He's still the chip leader.

Guess What...

'The Big Show' has doubled again, albeit a small improvement from his last chip up, and is now sitting with 200,000 in chips.

Topakas moved all in from the button and was called by Steven Friedlander:

Topakas: {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Friedlander: {J-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

The board then filled out {10-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{7-Spades} and Topakas' ace-nine high held up to win the pot.

Kerper Second Guessing Himself

Dan Shak raised from under the gun to 45,000 and Jens Kerper called from the big blind.

The flop was {A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Kerper checked. Shak bet 60,000 and Kerper called.

After the {2-Spades} on the turn, Kerper check-folded to a bet of 175,000 from Shak. Shak moved to 1.15 million and Kerper dropped to 630,000.

"I made a bad fold," said Kerper after the hand.

Hard to Kill

Steve 'The Big Show' Topakas has defied all odds, surviving an unthinkable amount of come-from-behind situations to stay alive in the tournament. Moments ago, we witnessed another one.

Topakas open-shoved all in from under-the-gun holding {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and was called by Jurgen Wenigwiester in the big blind, who woke up to queens.

The flop came {5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop gave Topakas a pair of extra outs, and runner-runner straight possibilities to chop the pot, but he got all the help he needed on the turn when the {K-Clubs} rolled off giving him two pair. The river blanked -- {7-Spades} -- and Topakas' railbirds went bonkers.

After the hand, one of the players at Topakas' table commented, "He's like Steven Segal; you can't kill the guy!"

After the hand, Topakas was back up to 161,000 in chips.

Dratsas Scoops a Small One

Jens Kerper had raised the button and Kosmas Dratsas called from the button. The flop was {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and Dratsas checked. Kerper checked behind.

The turn card paired the board with the {9-Clubs}. Both players checked again.

The river was the {2-Hearts} and both players checked once more.

Kerper showed {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} and Dratsas showed {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} to win the pot. He's up to 1.65 million while Kerper is on 690,000.

Friedlander On a Rush

Steven Friedlander raised to 40,000 with Jurgen Wenigwieser calling from the small blind and Steve Topakas calling from the big blind.

The flop came down {10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and action checked to the preflop raiser Friedlander. He bet 60,000 and only Wenigwieser called.

The turn was the {4-Hearts} and Wenigwieser check-called a 115,000-chip bet from Friedlander.

After the {J-Spades} on the river, both players checked and it was showdown time.
