The action has reached snails pace at the moment. We have seen three flops in the past fifteen to twenty minutes and here they are.
Davidi KItai raised to 44,000 in early position and both blinds called. The flop was and the action checked through to Kitai who bet 56,000. Kihara folded in the small blind but Chris De Maci check-raised all-in for 348,000 and Kitai folded.
Next we saw Kitai raise to 43,000 in first position and Tommy Le defended the big blind. The flop was and Kitai won the hand with a 58,000 c-bet.
Last we saw Daniel Hindin raise to 70,000 in early position and Davidi Kitai defend his big blind. The flop was and a 150,000 Hindin bet scared off Kitai.
Naoya Kihara may have slipped into second place behind Davidi Kitai but that hasn't altered his relentless style of play.
He raised to 70,000 from early position and was only called by Daniel Hindin in the big blind.
The flop fell and Hindin check-called a 140,000 bet. The turn appeared as and Hindin checked to hear his Japanese opponent announce, "Pot."
He folded and said, "Nice hand."
Scott Bohlman made a rare foray into the pot when he raised to 40,000 in the hijack seat and Davidi Kitai defended his big blind. The flop was and Kitai came out leading with a bet of 38,000; Bohlman called. The turn card was the and Kitai was in no mood to slow down. He bet 85,000 and Bohlman couldn't stand the heat.
Davidi Kitai raised to 43,000 in early position and Naoya Kihara three-bet from the small blind to the tune of 152,000. Back to the Belgian World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet holder and he four-bet to 472,000. The action swung back to Kihara and he went deep into the tank. We doubt that Kihara would have seen the four-bet bluff made by Kitai earlier as they were seated on different tables, but nevertheless, he was in deep thought mode.
Kitai just remained calm with his fingers gently rubbing his chin. Kihara was focused and his girlfriend thought it would be a great opportunity for a photo…snap…Kihara mucked his hand.

The players are on a twenty-minute break
Scott Bohlman has just found another double up, this time through Hans Winzeler. Winzeler raised to 30,000 on the button and Bohlman moved all-in from the big blind. Winzeler called and we had a showdown.
So aces-full for Bohlman who moved up to 296,000. Winzeler now has 730,000.
|Seat 1||Davidi Kitai||1,310,000|
|Seat 2||Hans Winzeler||750,000|

The final seven players are being redrawn on to one table after the elimination of Jason Dewitt.
He opened to 32,000 from under the gun and called when Hans Winzeler three-bet to 104,000 from the big blind.
The flop fell and Winzeler led for the pot (216k) and called when Dewitt shoved for 323,000.
The board ran out and after a count down, the dealer worked out that Winzeler had Dewitt covered.
The players are being moved to the secondary feature table now. We’ll have the table redraw for you very soon.
Davidi Kitai knows how to win a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet and he is using that experience to his advantage. He really has had an excellent few levels that has resulted in him catching the chip leader with 1,310,000 chips. Here is he getting a little fancy on us.
Kitai raised to 34,000 in the cutoff, Chris De Maci three-bet to 86,000 on the button, Kitai four-bet to 312,000 and De Maci mucked his hand. Kitai then flung into the air for everyone to see. Now there's a statement!
|Chris De Maci||730,000||-229,000|
|Blinds||20,000 / 40,000|
