Fernandez Doubles Through Rodero

Fernandez and Pablo Rodero
Fernandez and Pablo Rodero

The two remaining Spaniards are seated next to each other on the far end of the table. Although they speak casually with each other between hands, during the hands it's each on their own.

In the previous hand, Fernandez shoved from the small blind and Pablo Rodero's had a decision in the big blind. Rodero tried fishing for information with some friendly Spanish chatter, but Fernandez was having none of it and stared stoically in front of him. Rodero eventually let his hand go and Fernandez showed {2-}{2-}

In the next hand, Fernandez open-shove 840,000 from the button. This time, Rodero's decision was a lot easier and he was quick to make the call.

Fernandez: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Pablo Rodero: {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

Slowly, the dealer dealt {5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{9-Spades}{A-Spades}, giving Fernandez an important double with a rivered pair of aces.

Julio Sanchez Eliminated in 6th Place (275,000 MAD)

With 980,000 left, Julio Sanchez open-shoved from under the gun. To his direct left, Arron Fletcher called and the other players quickly went out of the way.

Julio Sanchez: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Arron Fletcher: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

The {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop was save for Sanchez, but the {A-Clubs} on the turn was a nightmare for the Spaniard. Sanchez now needed one of his remaining two tens to stay in the tournament.

"Diez! Diez! Diez!" Sanchez chanted, and his rail quickly chimed in. It wasn't a diez on the river but an ocho, the {8-Diamonds}, ending the start-of-the-day chipleader's run in 6th place. Sanchez takes home 275,000 MAD, around €25,684, back to Spain.

Hamza NBaba raised to 120,000 under the gun and Pablo Rodero called from the cutoff. The flop was {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}, NBaba bet 120,000 and Rodero called. On the {4-Hearts} turn, NBaba bet 260,000 and Rodero called again.

The river was the {9-Hearts} and NBaba fired 350,000 this time. Rodero stared intensely at his opponent for several minutes, then shoved all in for 1,990,000. NBaba considered it for the better part of a minute, but couldn't find a call and gave it up.

NBaba After the Break

KaleGozer • Nível 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hamza NBaba took a slightly longer break and arrived five minutes into the new level, what could be described as 'fashionably late'. The Moroccan got blinded off for a few hands, but took those chips right back and then some.

NBaba opened to 160,000 under the gun and Mika Kakkonen called. Kakonnen tried to take it with a 155,000 lead on the {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop, but NBaba responded with a raise to 355,000 and took the hand down.

Dinner Break

KaleGozer • Nível 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

The six remaining players are on a 60-minute dinner break. Action will resume around 9:00 p.m. local time. With the knockout of Mohamed El Bakkouri, Arron Fletcher will go into the break as the big chipleader.

Mohamed El Bakkouri Eliminated in 7th Place (215,000 MAD)

Mohamed El Bakkouri open-shoved 810,000 from the button. In the big blind, Arron Fletcher called directly to put El Bakkouri at risk.

Mohamed El Bakkouri: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Arron Fletcher: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The window card was the {Q-Spades}, improving Fletcher's inferior kicker and giving him a huge lead in the hand. The board got completed with {9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and El Bakkouri's tournament came to an end.

With El Bakkouri gone, the last Frenchman was out of the tournament. After two French winners in a row, the title will go to a new country.
