Former German ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ winner Sebastian Langrock became the first casualty of the final table.

Up next, both India’s Divanshu Khurana and Ferguson managed to double up through Sojka but unfortunately for Khurana, he fell in 6th place after his As- 9c-6s-4c lost to Stanislav Wright’s Ad-10d-8c-2s on the board 8d-7h-3d-3s-4d.
Just two hands later, it was Rex Clinkscales who went out in 5th place followed by Artur Sojka from Poland who was eliminated in 4th place by Ferguson who then went on to knock out Netherlands’ Eldert Soer in 3rd place to grab an almost 5-1 chip lead going into the heads-up play against Ukraine based Wright.
