Down to 54 Players

Another trio of players ran out of chips to reduce the field to the last 54 and Mariusz Niski avoided the elimination just shy of the money after doubling through Nicolae Suciu.

Suciu had limped the button and Niski jammed for 53,000 in the small blind, Suciu called and tabled :::5c:::5s. Niski had the far superior pocket pair in :::Qc:::Qh and had little to fear on the :::7h:::4s:::4d:::Kc:::Jd board.

The same table also feature Traian Bostan, who more than doubled as of lately, and Dara O’Kearney is right in his comfort zone of ten big blinds one table over.

Traian Bostan 170,000 110,000
Nicolae Suciu 160,000 -70,000
Mariusz Niski 110,000 80,600
Dara O’Kearney 50,000 5,000
Johan Creutz 0 -190,000
Raoul Iancovici 0 -32,000
Sandor Hadnagy 0 -71,300
