The second elimination of Level 32 has taken place with Viliyan Petleshkov taking out another player as he ran down James Dempsey on the river to send the Brit out in fifth place.
Petleshkov limped the small blind and Dempsey shoved for close to 1,700,000 in the big blind. Petleshkov called right away with A♠J♠ and had the K♥J♥ of Dempsey crushed. The A♣K♠K♦ drastically improved Dempsey’s prospects as he flopped trips. The J♠ turn improved Petleshkov to a flush draw and he hit it on the 2♠ river to leave Dempsey and his rail stunned.
Dempsey shook hands and exited and Petleshkov is firmly second in chips with 7,700,000.
