Level 25: 40,000/80,000 (80,000)
Salvatore Incardona min-raised from under the gun before Robert Kontkanen three-bet to 1,600,000 from the cutoff. Giorgio Accardi went into the tank for more than a minute before he called off his stack of 280,000 from the small blind and Incardona quickly folded after that.
Giorgio Accardi: Q♣10♣
Robert Kontkanen: A♠K♦
Accardi immediately left his seat expecting the worst. But instead he sat back down quickly after the 7♦8♣J♣5♣3♦ board improved him to a flush to double his stack instead of exiting the tournament.
Meanwhile, Marco Cipriani, Sebastian Mortensen, and Sabatino Pascarella all recently lost their stacks to leave just 35 players remaining.
Robert Kontkanen – 4 million
Salvatore Incardona – 1.6 million
Giorgio Accardi – 600,000
