Portlen is back to 124,000.

Martin Copeland got his cards in bad with an "I'm out". He rivered a set to stay alive and double through.

"See that's what confidence gets you," quipped Trung Tran.

Sam Khouiss has been left steaming. Trung Tran caught a straight to outdraw him for the high, and they split the low leaving Khouiss with 36,000.

"Come on man, everytime I get outdrawn. I can't win an all in on this rigged s***," said Khouiss, as he tossed his PokerPro card at the floor.

Mel Judah is back to around 30,000 after tripling back through Hassan Kamel and Eugene Portlen.

"I just tripled through Mel Judah," said Portlen. "That's not what we want," said Dave Morton.

Pauchon and Aristidou Out

Posted 2010-01-25 GMT+11
Yann Pauchon has just been eliminated by Dean Francis.

All the chips went in preflop with Pauchon's {Q-Spades}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} up against Francis' {A-Spades}{6-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{6-Hearts}.

Both players flopped sets on the {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop, with Francis turning a flush on the {3-Clubs} turn. The river was the {q-Hearts} to move Francis over 100,000.

Pauchon stopped by to remind us that he is "one of the unluckiest players in the world".
