Alfred "kzzon" Karlsson (10,705,721) and Netherlands-based Portuguese poker pro Silvio "silskyer" Costa (10,320,168) are separated by fewer than two big blinds.

Fast-Paced Action Early On
It took some time to reach the first pay jump of the day and Mike "gorodski" Gorodinsky was unfortunate to miss out on it when he ran with kings into aces to exit in 40th place. From there on out, the eliminations kept coming at a steady pace as big names such as Charlie "Epiphany77" Carrel, Konstantin "krakukra" Maslak, Mark "AceSpades11" Radoja, Michel "FreelancerZZ" Dattani and Dinesh "NastyMinder" Alt all came up short in quick succession.
Daniel "DANMERRRRRRR" Merrilees and Alex "lynskey99" Lynskey missed out on the final three tables on which the roller coaster ride of Andrew "ClockWyze" Pantling ended in 22nd place. Pantling was up and down the leaderboard all day long and eventually got short after paying off the second nuts of Alfred "Kzzon" Karlsson. Moments later, the Canadian lost a flip with king-queen against the jacks of Pavel "silentm0de" Plesuv.
Big Names Bust Shy of the Final Table
Laszlo "omaha4rollz" Bujtas was another very familiar name of the online and live poker circuit that came up short, and he was joined on the rail by Sylvain "caIcuIer_" Loosli and Alex "dynoalot" Difelice to set up the final two tables. Difelice was aiming for back-to-back final tables after finishing third in the SCOOP-74-H: $10,300 Main Event but his ace-queen only led the flop and turn while Timothy "Tim0thee" Adams rivered a flush with jacks.
Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson had to settle for 14th place and start-of-the-day chip leader Jans "Graftekkel" Arends departed in 11th place. The Dutchman was near the top of the counts for the vast majority of the day but ran with ace-king into the aces of Plesuv to drop into the middle of the pack. He then got it in with ace-jack against kings and ended up second-best.
The same cards were also involved in the elimination of Dominik "Bounatirou" Nitsche. After a string of double ups on both five-handed tables, Nitsche became short and found no ace to beat the kings of Will "hellzito" Arruda
Some 16 minutes remain in level 33 at blinds of 125,000-250,000 with a big blind 32,500 ante and the final table will recommence on May 26th, 2020, as of 1.05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Conclusive updates from start-to-finish will be published right here on PokerNews until a champion is crowned.
