Ben Mahmoud Out in First Hand – Greenwood and Schemion on Fire
The eliminations started in the first hand of the day when Imed Ben Mahmoud moved all-in with A♦ Q♣ and ran straight into Philip Sternheimer´s A♣ A♠. The Tunisian failed to improve past Sternheimer´s Aces and was bust in eighth place; but Sternheimer was unable to take control of the event and doubled-up Ole Schemion Q♠ 5♦ > 5♥ 9♣ (on a Five-high flop) to be reduced to 550,000 chips.
Max Greenwood also started well, and rivered a set of Eights to cripple Tamer Kamel, prior to eliminating him in seventh place (Q♠ J♠ > A♣ 5♥}) when flopping trip Queens; but Ole Schemion passed him at the top of the leaderboard by busting out Griffin Benger in sixth place (A♣ K♥ > A♠ 5♥}) and sending Mustapha Kanit to the rail in fifth place A♦ 7♦ > A♠ 4♥.
Schemion Takes Out Two More to Lead into Heads-Up
The pace of the game failed to slow down, and Ole Schemion bust two further players in consecutive hands – his first victim being former chip-leader Philip Sternheimer, who ran pocket Jacks into Schemion´s A♠ A♥, and then Alex Bilokur (J♥ 2♥) who moved all-in with the bottom pair on the flop of 2♠ 6♦ A♠ and finding Schemion (A♥ 7♠) had flopped the top pair.
Ole Schemion´s four knock-outs had given him a 3.475 million -v- 1.775 million chip advantage going into the heads-up against Max Greenwood, and he extended his lead further when catching Greenwood bluffing in a pot worth 645,000 chips. Aggressive play in the next three hands reduced Greenwood´s stack to 1.2 million chips, before the final hand of the EPT San Remo High Rollers heads-up.

Ole Schemion: A♥ J♦
