Piotr Pawel is one of the players who have ascended to near the summit of the leaderboard – his 110,000 looking like a rather muscular stack at this stage.
He just pumped a few weights with his chip bicep a few moments ago – sending tablemate Antonini Patrizio to the rail – Patrizio’s A-4 proving a poor match-up versus Pawel’s dominating A-T.
A board of 7-T-6-8-2 sealed his fate and Pawel’s stack had yet another boost.
He looks confident and is picking up chips with apparent ease. The Pole could well be a danger man as the tournament progresses…
