7.40pm: Tony G gets two shoves through – with sevens
Tony G re-raised Vanessa Rousso all in pre flop and forced a fold, showing 7♣ and claiming he had another one. The very next hand he shoved all in from the button, getting folds from Rousso and Randy Dorfman. This time he showed two cards – 7♣7♦.
Moments earlier Dorfman went all in from the big blind, forcing a fold from Rousso who had completed from the small.
Tony G is still lowest in chips, with Dorfman enjoying the current chip lead with around 1.7 million.
7.25pm: Rousso makes good calls
Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso has edged ahead after making two good calls against her opponents. First she called a 100,000 bet on the turn of a 9♣Q♥4♥4♣ board before both checked the 9♠ river. Her A♦2♠ good vs J♦6♠ of Dorfman.
Shortly after she called a 110,000 bet on the flop of K♣6♣ against Tony G, then both players checked the A♦ turn before Tony G took another shot on the 5♠ river. Rousso was a non-believer once more and made the call with Q♥7♥ which was good when Tony G could only show 10♣4♦.
7.00pm: Kings no good
Vanessa Rousso called from the button, Randy Dorfman folded and Tony G raised 110,000. Call from Rousso. The flop was 10♣3♦A♥. Check, check. They also checked the Q♦ turn, but on the 6♣ river Tony G bet 100,000 – call.
Tony G: K♥K♦
That hurt, but it could have been a lot worse.
6.40pm: The G’s megadraw
Tony G just took a decent pot off Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso. In a limped pot, he bet 100,000 on the 5♠6♥5♥ which she called, before both checked the 7♦ turn. On the J♥ river Tony G bet 160,000 and Rousso said she thought he’d got there with the flush before folding. He showed 7♥4♥ for a flopped straight flush draw, turned pair and rivered flush!
Rousso recovered some chips after though, limping the button and checking behind Tony G on a J♥10♥9♣ flop before raising his 50,000 bet on the Q♥ turn to 150,000. He made the call but showed the 8♦ when folding to a 450,000 bet on the 6♦ river. It’s all still pretty even.
6.30pm: New level
Tournament staff are colouring up the yellow 1,000 chips and we’re moving straight into this level without the ten-minute break. We’ll have latest chip counts up in a few moments.
