Before this third week, the Aviators had a solid gap of 7 points between them and the Hong Kong Stars, after this week, the gap is only 3 points.

No points for the Royals in the heads-up games, but earlier this week in the 6-max matches, Team Manager Liv Boeree scored 9 points for her squad with a 4th place finish in the first 6-max match and a win + a Jungleman slowroll in the second 6-max Sit and Go.
Speaking of Daniel “Jungleman” Cates, the Berlin Bear had another rough week in the Global Poker League.
