Aleksei Platonov Eliminated in 23rd Place (€56,700)

• Taso 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

The eliminations are coming fast and furious.

In the latest, Aleksei Platonov opened for 28,000 from middle position and action folded to Stephen Chidwick in the big blind. He announced that he was all in, and Platonov wasted little time in calling off for 150,000 or so total.

Platonov: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Chidwick: {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

Chdiwick only had a week ace, but it got stronger after the {5-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop paired the bullet. The {3-Clubs} turn left Platonov drawing dead, and after the {J-Spades} was put out on the river for good measure, he made his way to the payout desk in 23rd place to collect €56,700.
