The following players have recently hit the rail. They each recieved $20,000 AUD for their effort. The next few eliminations will go home with $25,000 AUD, while there is another pay jump when the tables are redrawn 36.
After Matthew Turk raised to 15,000 from early position, action folded to Alexander Roumeliotis in the cutoff seat. He reraised to 34,000. Out of the small blind, Josh Barrett four-bet to 86,000. Play folded back through to Roumeliotis, he shoved for around 155,000 and Barrett quickly called.
Roumeliotis tabled the and was in front of Barrett's with a chance to double up.
That chance of doubling up grew ridiculously slim after Barrett flopped quads on the flop. The turn was the and provided no sweat for Roumeliotis as he was now drawing dead. The river was the and officially completed the board to end Roumeliotis' tournament.
Andrew Hinrichsen opened the button with a small raise, and Ben Jenkins clicked it back with a three-bet from the big blind. Hinrichsen four-bet back, Jenkins five-bet, and Hinrichsen six-bet shoved for 354,000 total. Jenkins had just about the same size stack, and he called it off to see what was what.
The board ran out , and Hinrichsen's pair held up. When Jenkins' stack was counted down, his 353,000 chips had him covered by just one lonely thousand, and that's the way his Main Event has ended.
It's more than a double for Hinrichsen, too, moving him up around 715,000.
Action folded around to Andrew Mellado on the button and he raised to 17,000, which Rob Angood three-bet to 38,000 from the big blind. Mellado made the call, and then called Angood's bet of 43,000 on the flop.
When the hit the turn, Angood slowed down with a check, opening the door for Mellado to fire out 60,000. Angood made a quick call and then checked the river. Mellado instantly bet 75,000, which caused a sharp look of pain on Angood's face, as calling would cost most of his 102,000 chips. About 30 seconds passed before Angood made the laydown and Mellado took down the pot without a showdown.
Phil Ivey opened from middle position to 15,000 and Mile Krstanoski called out of the big blind to see the flop come down . Krstanoski checked the flop and Ivey bet 20,000. Krstanoski folded and Ivey scooped the pot.
