Level 24 has come to an end and the final nine players are now on a 20-minute break.
The second level of the day had just one player hit the rail. It was the level of the short stacks surviving with the worst of it. Macnamara had ace-four against Xixiang Luo's ace-king, but spiked a four on the turn. Peter Ockenden shoved ace-deuce in Macnamara's pocket tens and found an ace.
Someone had to go eventually. It was Germany's Louis Cartarius who fell in 10th place. Cartarius shoved pocket sevens into Aliaksei Boika's pocket aces and couldn't catch up. He was the last one to receive €32,140, the other players are guaranteed at least €41,590.
With nine players left, the unofficial final table was set. The early stages were relaxed, only Mats Karlsson was able to take a big pot off Elie Saad in the last hand before the break.
