Things have slowed down considerably. Viacheslav Goryachev is down to six blinds and Artem Metalidi succesfully reshoved on Ivan Luca. Nothing else really happened, it's small pots we're seeing for now.
After a very colorful performance we've just lost Charles Carrel, as the David Peters steam train keeps on rolling.
The action folded to Peters on the button who moved all in to put both blinds under pressure. Carrel looked down at his cards and called right away for about 1.2 million total, and Artem Metalidi folded his cards.
The board ran out and Carrel was sent to the rail as Peters hit a winning pair of eights. Just four players remain right now and Peters has almost half the chips in play.
Just for a minute it looked like Nick Petrangelo might be able to move up a spot as the other shorties pushed from time to time as well. Eventually, it wasn't meant to be it seemed as they got no callers, and Petrangelo did.
He shoved his last couple of big blinds in under the gun. Action folded to David Peters in the big blind who didn't even need a count.
The flop brought some chop outs, but the on the turn evaporated those. The on the river did indeed pair the board but the ten kicker played for Peters.
Nick Petrangelo finishes 6th in the €10,000 High Roller for €139,000. At the start of the EPT Malta festival he already finished 4th in the €25,000 High Roller for €205,900. Not a bad week in Malta for the man from the United States. The remaining five players are guaranteed €183,800.
