Fernando Brito eliminated in 6th place (£145,000)

Fernando Brito eliminated in 6th place (£145,000)

All in and a call! We love those words because it means something reasonably exciting is happening and in this case it was shortstack Fernando Brito who moved in with A-6o and was promptly called by Kyle Bowker out of the big blind.

Brito made a pair of sixes on the flop, keeping him in the lead but a ten on the turn meant he was drawing to just five outs to survive in the tournament. A king on the river ended it and he took home £145,000 for his biggest tournament score to date.

How will the dynamics change now the shortest stack has gone? Well, Artur Wasek and Kayvan Payman are still short and the former is the world's biggest nit. John Juanda will continue running the table but David Vamplew has some chips now and will probably be opening up his game.

Kyle Bowker has poker skills, undoubtedly - how else do you win two WCOOP bracelets? - but his position as the second-biggest stack on the right of the biggest (who happens to be John Juanda) means he is in the worst position at the table.
