Russian poker pro Vladimir Troyanovsky busted in 5th place after losing an all in with KQ vs AJ of Sorel Mizzi. Next to hit the rail was Timothy Adams. He shoved his remaining chips with 99 pre-flop and was called by Max Altergott holding A8. The flop brought an ace and the rest was history.

Lots of well known poker players are in Monaco at the moment for the 2013 EPT Montle Carlo Grand Final, which begins in a few hours. However, what everyone's talking about is a €1,000,000 buy-in cash game! Rumors about the massive cash game have circulated on the web in the past 1-2 weeks or so and several people have already said they would play if the game goes (Sam Trickett, Isaac Haxton, Philipp Gruissem, Paul Newey and Niklas Heinecker). Apparenlty the game would be eight-handed, with €1,000/€2,000 blinds and optional straddle. The game would be played on May 11 (Saturday) at 16:00 local time.

"It's not often you get an opportunity to play in a game this big, so obviously that's pretty exciting," Isaac Haxton (picture) told PokerStars last week.
