Haigh was eliminated on the next hand.
The next 45 minutes saw the continued rise of davidchien88 who took a commanding lead after catching a lucky set with to boot Brazil’s Luiz “Isildinho1” Neri who had . This gave davidchien88 nearly half the chips at his disposal. Next showdown awarded short stacked Janusz1957PL a double up off Camosci which he then used to rail BlueMoon in 5th place. Overwhelming chip leader davidchien88 finished off Uzbekistan’s “Pacailo” (4th) and Camosci (3rd) to kick off the heads-up round. Davidchien88 kept his lead intact throughout. The final hand was straight beating two pair on a board .
