Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Antonius Scares Buchanan Away

Patrik Antonius raised before the flop, and we're guessing it was 40,000, though we didn't actually see the amount. In any event, both Max Silver and Shawn Buchanan called from their respective blinds, and they went three ways to the {Q-Spades} {2-Clubs} {4-Spades} flop. The blinds checked, Antonius bet 60,000, and now only Buchanan came along to the turn.

It was the {9-Spades}, and Buchanan checked again. And again, we're fuzzy on the amount. We think it was 140,000. Either way, Buchanan made the call once more, and the river came the {5-Hearts}. Antonius only had 640,000 chips left in his stack, and he bet 425,000 of them to put Buchanan to the decision for almost half his own stack.

"Bucky" has been having a fantastic WSOPE so far, and he'd like that to continue. A quick double-check to make sure he didn't have the nuts, and his cards hit the muck.

Chips Count
Patrik Antonius fi 1,245,000 390,000
Shawn Buchanan ca 1,100,000 -266,000
