This elimination left Eibinger with over half the chips in play as we approached the first break of the day. Earlier in the day, Badziakouski had doubled through Eibinger when tens held against ace-queen. However, now it would be Badziakouski holding the ace-queen against Eibinger's tens. This time it was different, however, with an ace on the turn meaning Badziakouski and Eibinger were level in stacks, with Khangah in third place. With the blinds growing, the big blind ante began to have more of an effect three-handed.
The chip lead moved around between Khangah and Badziakouski, with the former moving into a commanding position after a series of aggressive moves.

The turn gave Khangah a better two pair and Eibinger was eliminated; the cooler had become the coolered.

The state of NSW is utterly addicted to pokies. And despite the rhetoric of reform, despite all the talk about responsible gambling, the past three years have seen poker machine profits and the state tax-take accelerate.
