As we head into the last three-level session of the night, two more players have bitten the tournament dust.
Tobias Schwarzenbach got his last in with As-8d but found himself in hot water against Johann Granig’s Th-Ts and failed to surface after the Jd 2h 9c 5c 2s board. Granig is up to 45k.
A similar fate has also befallen Thomas Annerer, whose Q-K proved wholly insuffucient against Lukas Vozdecky’s A-Q, the board rolling out 6-J-4-A-8 (how Tobias Schwarzenbach wishes he’d got that board!). Vozdecky, like Granig, is on 45k after that.
Eighty-two players remain.
