Level 15: 1,200-2,400 / Ante 400
Three players have been eliminated within quick succession and the field has been reduced to the last 43 hopefuls.
In a battle of the blinds, Jean-Luc Adam flopped the nut straight with 2h 5c on a flop of As 3h 4h and table neighbor Alessio Isaia got his stack of 90,000 in with 4c 4s. The Kd turn and 6s river were both blanks and Isaia was gone, Adam had around 390,000 after the hand.
Soon after, Matthew Fallon, who had previously lost two big pots on the table against Dueval Fenton and Nicola Salas, got it in with Ah 9h for 29,200. Salas called with the 7d 7c and the board came blank showing 10d 8s 3s Kc 8c. Salas moved up to 335,000, while Fenton has 120,000.
Last but not least, Gilbert George was also eliminated and sent his stack over to Robert Cheung, who now has 225,000.
