Hand #26: Daniel Colman limped the button with {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Seiver completed his small blind with {Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Busquet checked, and all three checked as well on {Q-Spades}{2-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}. The {4-Hearts} fell on the turn and after Seiver lead out, both Busquet and Colman folded.

Hand #27: Trickett shoved all in for 525,000 under the gun with {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}. Morten Klein in the big blind found {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and made the call.

The race was on, and Trickett soon found help: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Klein needed a nine, but even the nines weren't good anymore after the {4-Diamonds} hit the turn. The {J-Spades} on the river was of no importance, double up to 1.2 million for Sam Trickett. The Brit is still the shortest stack, but Morten Klein with 2.3 million isn't far ahead of him anymore.

Hands #24-25: Seiver Drinks a Double Courtesy of Klein (pun)

[user68268] • Level 20: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #24: On the first hand of the new level, Vladimir Troyanovskiy had the button, and Daniel Colman received a walk in the big blind with the {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}.

Hand #25: From early position, Morten Klein opened to 175,000 with the {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. Dan Shak folded the {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds} from the hijack seat, and Scott Seiver reraised all in from the big blind for 910,000 with the {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}. It was 735,000 more for Klein to call, and the Norwegian went into the tank.

After thinking for two solid minutes, Klein called with a dominated hand.

Seiver was a 67% favorite and stayed in front on the {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop. The turn was the {4-Clubs}, changing nothing, and then the river completed the board with the {10-Clubs}. Seiver's hand held up, and he doubled up to 1.94 million in chips.

Hand #21: Scott Seiver opened for 125,000 with the {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} from the hijack seat. In the big blind, Dan Shak made the call with the dominated {7-Spades}{6-Spades}.

There was 360,000 in the pot and Shak flopped not too bad on the {2-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{10-Spades} board. Both players checked, and the {4-Spades} hit on the turn. Shak was 100% to win the hand with his flush as long as he didn't fold. Shak checked, and Seiver bet 150,000. Shak check-raised to 400,000, and Seiver "didn't want to mess around with it" according to the commentators, so he folded.

Hand #22: Sven Reichardt opened under the gun to 125,000 with the {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Morten Klein had the {J-Hearts}{J-Spades} in the cutoff seat. Klein just called, and Vladimir Troyanovskiy over-called with the {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} from the big blind.

The three players with a pair took the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} flop. Troyanovskiy checked, and so did Reichardt. Klein, with his open-ended straight draw, bet out 225,000. Both opponents folded and the 710,000-chip pot went to Klein.

Hand #23: Klein found the {8-Clubs}{8-Spades} in the hijack seat and opened for 130,000. Sven Reichardt found the {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades} in the big blind and made the call.

The flop fell {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, and Reichardt checked to Klein. Morten Klein continuation bet 125,000, and Reichardt check-raised to 335,000. Klein decided it wasn't time to get frisky and folded after some thinking.

Hand #15: Scott Seiver raised from early position to 125,000 with the {A-Spades}{9-Spades}. All others folded, and Seiver pulled in the pot.

Hand #16: On the button, Vladimir Troyanovskiy raised to 125,000 with the {A-Clubs}{6-Spades}. Daniel Colman called out of the big blind with the {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}, and the flop came down {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. Both players opted to check, and the turn was the {4-Clubs}. Colman decided to lead for 175,000, and Troyanovskiy folded his hand.

Hand #17: Colman limped in from the small blind with the {Q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} after action folded to him. Scott Seiver had the {J-Spades}{4-Clubs} in the big blind and put in a raise to 195,000. Colman took his time and then fired back with a reraise to 355,000. Seiver quickly folded, and Colman won the pot.

Hand #18: On the button, Colman opened with a raise to 135,000 with the {A-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. The blinds folded, and Colman won the pot.

Hand #19: Seiver was on the button to start this hand and action folded to him. He had the {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and put in a raise to 125,000. Play then moved to Morten Klein in the big blind, and he called with the {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

After the {Q-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop fell, Klein reached for chips and fired 125,000. Seiver quickly folded, and Klein won the pot.

Hand #20: Colman held the {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and opened with a raise from the hijack seat to 120,000. Everyone folded, and Colman won the pot.

Hands #10-14: Vladimir Troyanovskiy Grabs the Lead

Webjoker • Level 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #10: Dan Shak opened for 125,000 holding the {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} in early position. Sven Reichardt was in the cutoff seat with the {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and made it 310,000. The button and both blinds folded, and action was back on Shak.

Shak grabbed a lot of chips and four-bet to 1,125,000, almost half his stack. Reichardt thought for some time, but ended up making the fold.

Hand #11: Action folded to Daniel Colman in the cutoff seat who found the {A-Spades}{J-Spades} and opened for 125,000. Everyone folded, and Colman started stacking the blinds and antes into his stack.

Hand #12: Reichardt opened for 125,000 with the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and won the blinds and antes after everyone folded.

Hand #13: Colman opened the {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} to 125,000 from early position. Olivier Busquet had the {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} in the cutoff seat and made it 275,000. Morten Klein folded {A-}{6-} on the button, both blinds folded, then Colman folded as well, and Busquet won the pot.

"I had a hand I needed to open," said Colman.

"I had a hand I had to three-bet," answered Busquet.

Hand #14: Chip leader Morten Klein decided to get involved for the first time and raised the {8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} from the cutoff seat to 130,000. Dan Shak folded his small blind with {A-}{7-}, but Vladimir Troyanovskiy made the call in the big blind with the {5-Spades}{2-Spades}.

Troyanovskiy flopped best on {5-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and led out for 100,000. Klein called with his gutshot.

The {4-Spades} on the turn paired the board, and Troyanovskiy bet out 200,000 into a 570,000-chip pot. Klein decided not to float again and folded.

Hand #6: From early position, Scott Seiver opened with a raise to 125,000 with the {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}. Everyone folded, and he won the blinds and antes.

Hand #7: Morten Klein raised from middle position to 125,000 holding the {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. Everyone folded, and Klein took down this pot.

Hand #8: Dan Shak opened with a raise to 125,000 with the {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} from the hijack seat. Vladimir Troyanovskiy reraised to 305,000 from the cutoff seat, and action folded back to Shak. Despite getting better than 3-1 on his money to make the call, Shak folded, and Troyanovskiy picked up the pot.

Hand #9: Sven Reichardt raised to 125,000 from the cutoff seat with the {A-Spades}{8-Clubs}. Mustapha Kanit reraised all in with the {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} from the small blind for 540,000, and then Scott Seiver quickly requested a count from the big blind with the {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}. Seiver folded, but Reichardt made the quick call to put Kanit at risk.

On the flop, the {8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} rolled off and Reichardt took the lead with a pair of eights. The turn was the {3-Clubs} to pair the board and left Kanit needing a queen on the river. The final card to the board was the {K-Spades}, and that marked the end of the road for the young Italian.

Kanit made his exit from the table with a payday of €105,455 for ninth place, while Reichardt climbed to 3.855 million in chips.

Hands #1-5: No Big Post-Flop Action So Far

Webjoker • Level 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #1: Morten Klein opened for 155,000 from under the gun. Action folded around quickly, and Klein took down the blinds and antes without anyone putting up a fight.

Hand #2: Action folded to Sven Reichardt, who opened to 125,000 with the {9-Spades}{7-Hearts} from middle position. His neighbor, Daniel Colman in the hijack seat, shoved all in for 1.4 million with the {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. Reichardt asked how much it was, but folded not much later.

Hand #3: Olivier Busquet had the button and opened for 125,000 with the {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}. Sam Trickett was in the big blind and had bigger plans with the {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. He pushed all in for 730,000 total. Busquet didn't waste any time, as he folded almost right away.

Hand #4: Sven Reichardt opened for 125,000 holding the {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs} in early position. Olivier Busquet thought about calling with {Q-}{10-} for a second, but folded. Dan Shak was in the big blind with the {Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} and made the call.

With 370,000 in the pot and {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{K-Spades} on the flop, both players missed, and Shak checked. Reichardt bet 125,000, and Shak immediately released his hand.

Hand #5: Scott Seiver opened to 125,000 holding the {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} in middle position. Action folded to birthday boy Vladimir Troyanovskiy in the big blind, and he called with the {A-Hearts}{5-Spades}.

The {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop made both players check. The {9-Spades} on the turn was checked by both players as well, and so was the {K-Clubs} on the river.

Holding the only pair in the hand, the 370,000-chip pot went to Seiver.

Who Walks Away with €1 Million?

Webjoker

After 58 unique players started, with a total of 77 entries, the field has been cut down to the final nine. Just one last table of players are still in contention for the first prize of over €1 million.

Leading the charge is the animated and cheerful Morten Klein. The seasoned recreational player from Norway made best friends with Scott Seiver and Mustapha Kanit yesterday, and has an entire day to get to know them even better. While Klein brings 3,740,000 to the table (62 big blinds), Seiver (1,310,000, 22 big blinds) and Kanit (690,000, 12 big blinds) will have to start out a bit shorter.

Daniel Colman is at it again, continuing the hot streak he started in Monte Carlo at the end of EPT Season 10. He won the €100,000 Super High Roller there for €1,539,300, then he won the World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop this summer for $15,306,668, and now has his eyes on the top prize here. He'll have to come a bit from behind, though, as he'll start the day with 1,420,000 (24 big blinds).
