<strong>8.53pm: Dinner break</strong>
Players are now on a one-hour dinner break.

<strong>8.46pm: Jens Winkler bubbles Eureka4 Rozvadov</strong>
In the end, there was nothing more Jens Winkler could do. There looked to have been at least nine all-in showdowns but every single one saw either a split pot or the short stack doubling up. In the end, Winkler was all in as Sascha Achim Ranzinger and Mateusz Martewicz checked down a 6♣2♦A♥9♣T♦ board.

Razinger showed K♥Q♦, Martewicz flipped over T♠8♠, Winkler just needed to better this but he could only show Q♣3♠. With that, the 90-minute bubble is over and everyone else is now in the money.

<strong>8.33pm: Two more double-ups</strong>
No-one is looking sadder than Jens Winkler at the moment. First Nessim Alberto Dayan doubled through Bert Geens with A♠J♦ against 9♠2♠ after the money went in on the turn of a 3♣J♥9♠6♠8♣ board. Then Michael Passy doubled through Zoltan Gal with A♥K♥ against A♠8♣, Passy flopping a king. Winkler has three antes, can he survive?

<strong>8.24pm:Winkler ready to jump the sharks</strong>
Jens Winkler looks to be the shortest stack remaining. The German just had the blinds pass through him and he has 2,000 remaining - four antes.

<strong>8.14pm: Always aces</strong>
"We have an all-in and a call," said tournament director Luca Vivaldi, "the all-in player has aces..."

"They always have aces!" shouted an annoyed person from another table.

This time it was Petr Subik with A♥A♦ who doubled up through Josef Gulas' A♣Q♦ after a blank board. We're about halfway through level 16 here and it looks as though this bubble will be lasting a little while yet.

<strong>8.10pm: No breakthrough</strong>
The bubble is still going on strong, Ilie Smintanca-Januszewski just doubled up to 45,000 when he shoved for his last 22,000 from the button with A♥K♥. Raf De Wever called in the big blind with A♠8♥ but there were no surprises on the 4♠K♥J♦5♣T♥ board.

<strong>7.52pm: Level up</strong>
Blinds are now 2,500/5,000 with a 500 ante. There will be a one-hour dinner break at the end of this level.

<strong>7.30pm: Three showdowns, no exits</strong>
Tasho Sehitaj doubled up through Zoltan Gal, check-calling three streets with aces on a 4♠9♥Q♦6♣9♣ board against the Hungarian's pocket sevens. Jan Przysucha and Athanasios Fergiatakis split a pot after both got their chips in with ace-ten on a T♥9♠2♥ flop. Finally Kevin Barkow doubled up with kings against Bert Geens' six-seven, Barkow hit a third king on the turn for good measure.

<strong>7.10pm: Azan bubbles the bubble</strong>
Victor Azan moved all in for 21,000 over the top of Tomasz Gluszko's initial 8,000 raise. Gluszko made the call with 6♥5♦ and Azan's A♥K♥ was ahead but the board came a topsy-turvy 6♦3♥5♥8♠J♠ as Gluszko made two pair to knock out the Frenchman. The tournament is breaking a table and going hand-for-hand.

<strong>5.32pm: Jambor doubles through Passy</strong>
A crucial double up for Christian Jambor who moved all in for 32,700 over the top of Michael Passy's initial 6,000 raise. Passy gave him a spin with Q♥J♦ but Jambor's A♥K♦ held film on a K♥Q♣T♣7♦6♠ board. Jambor moved up to 70,000 while Passy dropped to 120,000.
