Just like buses, you wait ages for an elimination, and then two come at once!
In fifth place, we’ve just lost Day 1a chip leader Artur Yarovoy. Kilian Kramer opened to 210k in the cutoff, before Yarovoy shipped from the big blind. Kramer tanked up for a while, but eventually made the call.
Board: 9c 2h Jd Ts 7c
Kramer turned a straight, and the fat lady sang, that was all she wrote, etc, for Yarovoy.
Kramer now has 6.8 million – almost half the chips in play.
