Nicholas Harrison did build back a stack of one big blind, but the next hand was all in with Kc Qx, called in two spots by players that checked down the board of 7h Qs 9c Ah Td. On the river, Harrison tabled his pair of queens, but Donald O’Kelly had rivered the nut straight with Kh Jc. Harrison was 12th for €770.
Benjamin Lebor exited in 11th place – at almost the exact time that Michael Frederick’s shove of 181,000 was being called by Christofor Chrysochoidis. Frederick said, “I think I have to get lucky,” as he saw his Ah 7c was behind to Chrysochoidis’ Ad 8d. He called for big cards but the eight still managed to play after a Ks Ac Th 5d 3s runout. Frederick was 10th for €880 and we are down to the final.
