Bastian alive and kicking... just

Despite a little confusion on the Day 1a chip count we can confirm once again Bastian Bluem is very much alive in the Main Event, though he has endured something of a roller coaster so far.

The German tournament specialist returned around half the average and having got back on par earlier, he was quickly shorn back down to short stack status.

Things had looked hopeful when he got it all-in with flush draw v flush draw and his high card held up, but the very next hand his JJ ran smack into Aces.

That proved a hugely costly pot, to the tune of 50,000 in the middle, but our man battles on with 17,000 - which is now around 14 big blinds.
