Action Slows Down to a Crawl

With ten players left, two tables of five players and no hand-for-hand, action has slowed down to a crawl on both tables as no one wants to miss out on the final table. Pots are very few and far between currently, with only the occasional shove from the short stack getting through.

Kevin Song

After Benjamin raised it to 650,000 from the cutoff, Marco Bognanni then three-bet to 1,700,000. The small blind got out of the way and Kevin Song then four-bet shoved all in, which got a quick fold from Moon. Bognanni asked for a count, which the dealer confirmed, and he made the call.

Kevin Song:   
Marco Bognanni:   

Song was in a race for his tournament life, which he looked to win after the dealer spread a flop of    . The   turn kept Song in the lead, but the   river meant Song would have to wait until another day to win a second bracelet.

Hamid Feiz Eliminated in 15th Place ($15,412)

Hamid Feiz

Josh Boulton raised first to act and received calls from Robert Mitchell and Hamid Feiz in the blinds. The flop came down     and both blinds checked to Boulton, who continued for 600,000. Mitchell called, as did Feiz.

On the   turn, Mitchell checked and Feiz opted to lead for 1,000,000. Boulton quickly got out of the way, but Mitchell stuck around for another street.

The   river saw another check from Mitchell and Feiz bet 1,500,000 this time. Mitchell let out an audible sigh, then inquired how much Feiz played in total. After around a minute, he check-raised all in and Feiz immediately called it off for around 3,500,000.

Mitchell showed him    for a king-high flush and Feiz, despite technically needing to show his hand, mucked it instead. Just like that, the start-of-the-day chip leader was gone in 15th place.

Moon Rising

After he re-checked his cards and eyed Moon's stack, Hallay made the decision to fold, which sent a few more chips Moon's way.
