Azusa Maeda raised to 13,500 from the under the gun position and the action got folded to Pollak who was in the small blind. The Frenchman shoved for 100,500 and got called by Maeda who tabled by far the best hand.

Azusa Maeda{J-Hearts}{J-Spades}
Benjamin Pollak{A-Clubs}{2-Hearts}

The board ran out {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and we're down to 12 players.

Bruno Benveniste raised to 13,000 and Marton Czuczor made the three-bet. Before we could get chance to count it David Benyamine had moved all-in, Benveniste had folded and Czuczor had called. It was going to be a flip but Benyamine would win it in an unlikely way.

Benyamine{A-Hearts} {K-Hearts}
Czuczor{8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds}

Board: {10-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {10-Spades} {9-Clubs}

The river nine nullifying Czuczor's hand.

Benjamin Pollak raised to 10,000 and Azusa Maeda three-bet to 21,000 before Speranza four-bet jammed all-in. Pollak folded but Maeda made the call and as usual wished the Italian the very best of luck (seriously this guy has his tilt problems well and truly under control).

Maeda{10-} {10-}
Speranza{6-} {6-}

Flop: {6-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {9-Clubs}

Once again the ever friendly Maeda tapped the felt in recognition as Speranza surged into the lead.

Turn: {10-Hearts}

Wow! Maeda takes his advantage right back from Speranza.

River: {J-Hearts}

It's all over and Maeda moves over 200,000

Kastle Takes One Down

On a {2-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{10-Spades} flop Casey Kastle check-called a 11,000 bet bringing us to the turn. The turn was the {10-Spades} and both players checked quickly. The river was the {8-Hearts} and Kastle bet for the third time. Krakow grabbed some chips and put in a 20,000 bet. "I call" Kastle announced after 30 seconds. "Good call," Krakow said tabling {3-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. Kastle showed {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and raked in the pot.

Hellmuth Has Quit Calling

Phil Hellmuth has just told his table that he is going to stop calling and start raising after losing two consecutive pots.

In the first hand, Hellmuth called a pre flop raise from Marton Czuczor and they shared a flop of {K-Spades} {J-Spades} {6-Clubs}. Hellmuth check-called a 9,500 bet and the dealer gave us the {8-Clubs} on the turn. Hellmuth checks again and Czuczor bet 21,000. Hellmuth threw his pocket tens on the table.

"Life is great kid. You are running well, but I have a surprise waiting for you. This kid will bluff off his stack to me eventually. 100%"

Then Robert Finlay raised to 8,000 on the button and Phil Hellmuth once again called, this time in the small blind. This time the action was checked down to the river and Finlay bet 8,000 on a {K-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {4-Hearts} board. Hellmuth checked and Finlay showed him {K-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} for the flopped full house and Hellmuth mucked {A-Diamonds} {10-}.

This is when Hellmuth gave his declaration to the table that he had quit cold-calling raises.

Wigg Catches Major Break

Anton Wigg opened the pot to 8,000 getting a call from Adrien Allain who was on the button. The flop was {2-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs} and Wigg bet out 11,500. Allain went into the tank before raising to 23,000. Wigg quietly shoved his remaining chips to the middle for a total of 115,500 and Allain callde.

Anton Wigg{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Adrien Allain{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}

Wigg needed a lot of help and got a whole bunch of new outs when the {A-Clubs} appeared on the turn. When the {2-Clubs} hit the river Wigg let out a short "Yes!" while Allain stumbled away from the table knocking over a chair in the process. Allain is now one of the short stacks while Wigg is closing in on Humbert.
