I witnessed the first two ITM eliminations basically as I was just on my way back to the bloggers’ desk (❤️ 6-Max!).
First, Michael Fohs’ pocket fives lost to Ross Ellis’ As 9h on a 7h 9c Js Kh 6d board sending Fohs to the rail with €560 and leaving Ellis and his magnificent beard with a roughly average 250k.
Then I managed to just catch Chris Ruprecht (pictured) failing to spike with K8 against Peter Sandberg’s AT on a ten-high board and instead claiming 34th place (also €560).
And in the time it’s taken me to type this, we’ve also lost Johnathan McCann in 33rd, Ori Hasson in 32nd and Michael Mitrione in 31st. Carnage!
