Slowing to a Crawl

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

There's been very little happening so far in this level. John Taramas is taking about five minutes with every hand before generally folding and has been whittled down to about 900,000 or so.

Zimnan Ziyard and Hauke Heseding have tended to stay out of each other's way and go after the short stack, but they look like they are willing to go to war when needs be. Just now Heseding made it 165,000 in the small blind but folded to Ziyard's reraise to 350,000.

Florian Schleps Eliminated in 4th Place (€100,800)

• Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
A 4th place finish for Schleps
A 4th place finish for Schleps

Hauke Heseding opened to 125,000 from the small blind before Florian Schleps made it 275,000 in the big blind.

Heseding quickly moved all in and Schleps snap-called.

Heseding: {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}
Schleps: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The flop was {Q-Spades}{5-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and Heseding leapt into the lead and the {5-Clubs} sealed the deal on the turn with a meaningless {10-Hearts} on the river. Heseding increases his chip lead, he's got over half the chips in play.

Ziyard{A-Spades} {J-Clubs}

A set on the flop for Taramas and the crowd screamed and shouted! Ziyard needed a miracle!

Florian Schleps had already had one 15 big blind shove get through uncontested when he tried it once more from the button. This time John Taramas woke up with a hand in the big blind. He waited until all of his fans circled the table and when he felt he had enough of them he made the call.

Schleps{10-Spades} {8-Hearts}
Taramas{6-Hearts} {6-Clubs}

Schleps amazingly finding himself with two overcards, and when the flop came down he nailed one of them.

Flop: {K-Diamonds} {10-Hearts} {4-Hearts}

"Go Flo!" Was a shout that came out of one fans mouth, while the rest just oozed a collective sigh. The turn {Q-Spades} and the river {J-Hearts} didn't change anything and Schleps doubled up.

Florian Schleps 1,950,000 590,000
John Taramas 730,000 -770,000
