Level 27: Blinds 30,000/60,000/60,000 BB Ante
Total Entries: 627
Players Remaining: 6
Average Stack: 3,135,000
Najib Bennani open-shoved for 1,100,000 from under the gun. Guo Chen thought for a few minutes before he folded and Kane Kalas followed suit. But instead of folding after thinking, Kalas moved all in with the bigger stack. The rest of the players quickly folded and they were off to the races.
Bennani needed to hold to stay in the game but Kalas moved into the lead on the flop. The turn changed nothing and the river sent Bennani out in seventh place.
Tournament staff paused the clock for the last six players to bag up their chips for a live-streamed final table return tomorrow at 2pm. This was the last hand of Level 27 and they will kick off tomorrow at the top of Level 28.
Kane Kalas – 3,330,000 (56 bb)
Najib Bennani – Eliminated in 7th place ($55,497)
