Lvl 13 – 800/1600/100 – 24 players – av stack 80k
Off to a banging start as we lost Charles Bishop. He started the day as the short stack and he took the punt and could not get there. Frustrating, but he’s on holiday and having a jolly time, so we’re pretty sure he’s not crying too hard.
Another man down 20 minutes in as Yosi Dolev played the game and lost…
Sucks to bust so early in Day2, unlucky guys! See you at the next one.
Davide Fazio is our next victim. He started Day2 with just over 20 bigs and is now heading home. The short stacks are getting destroyed early on here!
Lvl 2 – 1k/2k/200 – 20 players – av stack 95.5k
Harsh times for Aleks Radev as he started Day 2 with the second largest stack. He had an expensive misread situation that cost him 70k of his stack when he read the flop for all spades and put his opponent to it with As in his hand.
The flop actually contained one heart and Radev nearly celebrated the spade on the turn before realising his flush was a phantom.
With a destroyed stack he eventually flopped 2 pair but was outrun by an opponent’s turned straight. Harsh turnaround for Radev, at least his qualified by grinding up his bankroll from the redbet online freerolls.

Matthew Vella eliminated in 15th place, leaving two tables of 7.

Lvl 17 – 2k/4k/400 – 12 players – av stack 160k
We have just lost Giorgio De Cillis and Manuel Lopes (the Play2Care representative).
Lopes tried a creative shove all in against two preflop limpers who both called him off with AJ. Manuel’s 56 could not find purchase against the twin opponents and he seemed a bit annoyed about it when we caught up with him in the smoking area.
Lvl 18 – 3k/6k/500 – 11 players – av stack 174k
We lost Oles Smyrnov towards the end of lvl 17. He’d been playing short stack ninja for a while, but eventually got collared and finished in 12th place.
2 eliminations to go until the final table and 4 to the money.
Down to 10 after Kristoff Van Der Stichel was eliminated in 11th place.
