The 1,500/3,000 blind level has certainly been a busy one! The ladies might have caught wind of the epic Irish Open Beer Pong Tournament about to commence and decided that this is the time to go big or go to the bar…
Leila O’Sullivan was eliminated by Michelle Bricknell in 16th place (all in pre short with As 8h, looked up by a winning Ah Tc), bumping Bricknell’s stack up still further – she’s now second in chips with 250,000.
Elsewhere Lisa Marie Zotzenbach doubled up, winning a race vs. Smadar Kruvi Shalhov (her button jamming Kc Jc out-performing Shalhov’s calling pocket fours). She now has 60,000, while Shalhov has 90,000.
14 players remain and we’re about to raise the blinds to 2,000/4,000.
