Nik Persaud can literally walk on water...

 Click to see full-size image.


Well he can't, but he might as well try because he'd probably succeed...

He pushed for 22k (blinds are 800/1600/200) after there was a standard raise in early position to 4.8k. Ulrika Stonnemark pushed for 27k sitting right next to him. And next to her, Shane 'Shaniac' Schleger called.

Nik:



Ulrika:



Shane:



Board:



Shaniac takes a hit, Ulrika is OUT and Nik is on around 75k now.

Nik, "The hand played itself."

Soren Bakfort has trebled up with A-K vs. Q-Q vs. 6-6, the latter belonging to the biggest stack, Hans Ritberg.

Board =

---------------

Kristof De Smedt, commonly known as Deluxy on PokerStars, has just eliminated a young American player.

Raising from the button to 13k, yankieboy was re-raised all-in by Smedt from the big blind. Shortstacked (although he had just about enough to fold), the American made a reluctant call before flinging his Nines onto the table as Smedt revealed his Pocket Ladies.

Useless K-6-4-4-8 board and we'd lost another.

Yes it does look like Andy's topping the leaderboard...

A couple of big hands have shifted some of the stacks in the last half hour; at the risk of repetition (sometimes we just pass each other on the way in and out of the press room) here are my chipcounts too - taking into account some of them, and with a few additions:

Chris Smith        15,400
Richard Herbert   50,000
Ali Masterman      19,000
Rick Wild             70,500
Michael Martin     91,500
Thomas Wahlroos  80,000  (overheard him complaining about someone making a bad call with A-K and clearly having won)
Devilfish               61,000
Mark Teltscher     60,000
Andy Black          275,000
Greg Raymer        78,000
Johan Storakers    34,800
Gunnar Osterbrod  66,000
Joe Beevers          48,000
Arnaud Mattern     44,500
Theo Jorgensen     36,000
Viktor Ramdin        20,000
Nik Persaud           61,000  (suddenly wearing a Pokerstars shirt, as they must've noticed he's blessed)
Richard Ashby        28,000
Steve Jelinek         83,000
Ram Vaswani        155,000
Mickey Wernick       64,000
George Danzer        40,000  ("What I started with; best hand in six hours A-9,"  looking dejected)
Alexander Stevic     37,700
Ross Boatman         58,000
Dave Clayton          60,000
Dean Sanders        155,000
Jim Kerrigan            41,400
Odd Lavik               25,000
Bad Girl                 50,000  (doubled up an all-inner holding Aces with her Nines, on a Ten-high rag flop)

Dave Clayton has sunk down to 13k after his ran into on a board.

--------------

Frederik Holstrup Pedersen, who finalled in Poland the other week, is OUT.

He came into the pressroom and imply said, "70k at the start of the day, and I blew it."

Shane Schleger is OUT, according to Nik Persaud, he pushed with J-4 and was called by A-Q, he hit his Jack but I'm guessing there was a Ten and a King around somewhere because his opponent river the nut straight.

Carlos Mortensen managed to get away from Kings cheaply on a board when a slowed him down on the turn and Chad Brown bet 40k, Carlos said, you have Nines, and Chad duly showed the .

Chip counts:

Micky Wernick -- 50k
Xuyen Bad Girl Pham Vladar -- 68k
Richard 'Strummer' Herbert -- 60k

DTD's Richard Ashby doubles up:  He was actually standing up beside the table and kind of drew my attention to the pot he was involved in; all in with two callers.  The callers in the picture are either side of the guy in the red cardy - on the two spades board Patric Martensson moved in, knocking out the opposition and getting it heads up with his .  Not bad; Ashby showed however: better.
River:  two hearts  and a clearly relieved Ashby is back in it with something around 60k. 

Do you think people get other people to watch hands they're already all-in in if they have a bunch of rubbish and reckon they're about to get busted?  Not so often. There's something nice about having observer vindication in having (a) won your all-in or (b) gotten cracked when you were a favourite when the money went in.  I was happy to be that observer.

Andrew Robl -- out
Victor Ramdin -- out
Jim Kerrigan -- 40k
Odd Slavik -- 16.5k

Partic Martensson has eliminated an American player with 8-8 v A-K, 8 on Flop.

Richard Waters has shot up to 50k after hitting quads with Jacks v Aces, all-in pre-flop.

Richard Wild is OUT.

Pushed a few times before being looked up by 6-6 with J-8. Coinflip, failed to hit. Had just 16k at the time and was philosophical in defeat.

And how did he lose a big chunk of chips previously?  "That serial bluffer in seat nine wasn't serial bluffing one time - he had trips."

81K average stack Blinds 1/2 ante 200, seems like this is tough going here. 40BB average isnt bad but at 4600 a round its definetly a time for playin and not sitting back! KAArrap shhot! lol

I think the tournament directors maybe agreeing with you, the next level will be 1.2k/2.4k with a 200 ante instead of the 1.5k/3k/300. There's only 116 players left with still 10 minutes and two levels to go.

Latest casualty is Paul Gourlay, pushed his last 35k in with against Steve Jelinek's but the board came . Here he is in the enjoyable restacking process.

Amongst the chip leaders is Christopher Ulsrud with 350k, I think it was mentioned in the Warsaw EPT update that he managed to make $1.3 million online in January alone... he just busted a short stack with against on a (Fun turn card!) board.

This is Carlos Mortensen's stack, he's quite the architect isn't he? He, along with the previously mentioned Christopher, Andy Black, Josh Arieh and Chad Brown make up a big-named group of leaders in this tournament.

Snoopy... Can you tell Nic Micky said ... 'You're freerolling after the QQ... play your game and bring it home'

Nik is OUT, T-T into A-J.

Richard Waters has trebled up, he held K-K against Mateyboy's A-J and Greg Raymer's J-J which held.

Nick Jenkins has 44k whilst Johnny Lodden has about 160k last time I checked.

Remaining DTD players:

Michael Greco -- 45k
Richard Ashby -- 70k

Blinds are now 1200/2400/200

Harry Demetriou is OUT.

Meanwhile, little known Richard Waters has eliminated poker titan Greg Raymer in a true 'what dreams are made of' moment. Richard Waters calling an all-in re-raise from Raymer with A-K, only to find himself in a coinflip with the former World Champion's Pocket Snowmen. Ace on the River.
