From 15 to 14 as the Tension Grows

Espen Jorstad

The previous pace of eliminations slowed down significantly and even though there were several all-in showdowns, only one player was sent to the payout desk.

In the meanwhile, Espen Jorstad skyrocketed into the lead after he clashed with fellow GGPoker qualifier Tom Kunze, which sent the latter back into the middle of the pack.

Let's have a look at some of the highlights while the next 20-minute break is already underway in the early morning hours in Las Vegas.
