Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Vladimir Schemelev Falls to Bring the Bubble

When the table folded around to the blinds, Vladimir Shchemelev looked down at {Q-Diamonds} {8-Diamonds} and shoved his last ~55,000 into the pot. The last man to get through, big blind Matt Waxman squeezed out {9-Spades} {9-Diamonds}, though, and he quickly made the call with a chance at the knockout.

Shchemelev drew a gutterball on the {3-Diamonds} {10-Spades} {9-Hearts} flop, and the {7-Diamonds} on the turn added another set of outs as he now had the diamonds to sweat, as well. The river was the black {7-Clubs}, though, and Waxman superfluously improved to the full house to earn the knockout.

So then, it's Shchemelev out in 18th place, and the 17 who remain are now playing hand-for-hand on the direct bubble. The next man out gets nothing except the proverbial wooden spoon.
