In the early orbits back from dinner break, Jelle Moene and Dominik Nitsche got all the chips in the middle, Moene at risk, in a classic flip, at least for four handed play.
Moene: Ac Jd
Dominik: 8d 8c
There were a lot of chips in teh middle, that much we can tell you accurately. The board ran out 4h 6s As Qc 3s.
The classic flip meant that four-handed would be preserved. Next money jump is worth a cool 5k Euros.
Small pot poker had briefly resumed. But Nitsche was short and moved all-in on the button for about 7.5 blinds. He had a real hand, Ad Ts, but Jamie Nixon’s was realer, Ks Kh.
The flop came 6h 9s 4h, the turn the 3c, and the river paired the board, it was the 6c, meaning Dominik was done. In two hands a healthy stack can disappear in no-limit hold’em tournaments through no fault of your own. And just like that Nitsche was out.
Fighting another day, or again later today
