They will be extended to 60 minute levels from then on, for the duration of the tournament.The first player out of the game, Julien Kapitzke from Germany had a surprising beat whilst holding King Kong [KK] when we pushed all in against an opponent who hit a set of 9's on the flop whilst holding pocket 9's.
