The first event of the night was another $25,000 No Limit Hold’em event which brought out the biggest of guns including Mikita Badizakouski, Sami Kelopuro, Ole Schemion, and Adrian Mateos. None of those guys cashed but others in contention for the Purple Jacket such as Eelis Parssinen, Steve O’Dwyer and Alex Foxen did. The latter finished fourth after which Timothy Adams, now fourth on the standings, hit the rail. Dan Smith busted Artur Martirosian after a very entertaining heads-up battle and collected more than half a million dollars.
