Less than 10 minutes after knocking out Nick Palma with quads over a full house, Athanasios Polychronopoulos was at it again.

With the final board showing Ac7d3sKd7s on the river, a player in middle position bet 25,000, Polychronopoulos moved all in from the button, and his opponent called all in for about 85,000 with 3h3d for a full house, threes full of sevens.

But Polychronopoulos turned over Ah7c to win the pot with a higher full house, sevens full of aces, to eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until the end of this level, around 11:15 pm.
