Barely five minutes on the clock and our shortest stack has departed to take us down to two tables. Merkourios Dravalos exits in 21st for a €1,375 payday.
With just 7 and a half big blinds to work with, it was inevitable the Greek would be all-in within the first orbit and his A5 couldn't find any help against 10s.
It also gives us a chance to catch up with a few exits from last night, especially as Leszek Matonog was among the player to impact Fantasy Poker. He was our last man out on Day 2 and sealed the same prize as Dravalos for 22nd.
In 27th was Emmanouil Mastorakis (€1,000), 26th Dimitar Kostov (€1,062) and 23rd Paschalis Gkizdimidis (€1,250).
As reported last night, Peter Horvath and Susanne Jensen also hit the rail at the tail end of Day 2.
Prize pool reminder - 1st - €26,881; 2nd - €19,375; 3rd - €14,687; 4th - €10,937; 5th - €7,500; 6th - €6,250; 7th - €5,000; 8th - €3,750; 9th - €2,500; 10th-12th - €2,187; 13th-15th €1,875; 16th-18th €1,562; 19th-20th €1,437.
