We've lost one at this final table and it is Dutchie Michiel Brummhelhuis's seat now sitting empty. Read on for a rundown of his crippling and subsequent elimination as well as the current counts for our five remaining contestants.
Michiel Eliminated (Sont les mots qui vont tres bien ensemble)
Although these players don't need anything even resembling a premium hand to get their chips in play, as we've seen for the entirety of this 6-max event, the hand that crippled Brummelhuis was a bit of a set-up.
It began with Rep Porter opening to $34,000 and action folding to Brummelhuis in the small blind who re-popped to $105,000. Porter wasn't finished yet, however, and made it $354,000 to go.
Brummelhuis moved all-in and Porter snap-called. Porter turned over pocket kings which had the Dutchman's A♥ Q♥ in a bad spot. The board ran with no help to either hand and Porter takes a massive chunk of Michiel's stack.
In a hand shortly after action was folded to Rep Porter in the small blind and he brought it in for a raise. Brummelhuis was in the big blind and opted to move all-in, another $150,000 or so on top of Rep's $38,000 opener.
Porter made a quick call and tabled A♠ J♦ which was, once again, crushing Michiel's A♣ 4♥. The flop came Q♥ 6♦ 4♠ and Brummelhuis miraculously spikes a four. The turn is the 2h and it looks like the double is a lock, until the J♠ hit the river.
Michiel Brummelhuis is out in 6th and will receive $53,313.
