39 players are returning in total for Day 2 for event 4.
With 80 entries, the prizepool is €14400 and the prize breakdown will be publish shortly.
Day 2 will start in 30 minutes.
Lvl 13 – 800/1600/100 – 39 players
Clock starts at 13:02 with 39 stacks… a few players running a bit late, maybe celebrating the football result last night?
Early bath for Micheal Thomas who started the day with 32k and got 99 in preflop against AK. Thomas couldn’t win the flip and he’s our first casualty of the day.
Two eliminations in one hand as Santina Spedalieri and Martin Vltavsky got it all in with 88 and 1010 respecttively against Patrick Sundstrom’s AK.
Ace flop, never got any better for either pair. We’re down to 36 players.
As the tables broke, a lonely shout of “lost one” was heard across the field of noise… that ‘one’ was Sascha Manns; maybe no-one will ever know the bustout hand, it will disappear into the annals of time like a wisp of smoke.
Lvl 14 – 1000/2000/200 – 35 players – av stack 68k
Online qualifier Micheal Edge found QQ with 25 bigs and got it in preflop.
Sadly, he got it in preflop against other online qualifier, Reza Haack’s AA and the poker Gods weren’t in the mood to slip a Queen out there.
Edge is eliminated in 35th place, but since he qualified for €5 in an online satty with 85% of the prizepool being generated by house overlay, he didn’t seem bothered. He’s off to find a cash game.
We lose Event #2 final table player Konrad Abela in 34th place.
Domenico Tortomasi exits in 33rd place.
Teemu Hietala bites the dust in 32nd place.
Anna Colley leaves us in 31st place.
Andrea Stellato gone in 30th place.
Leo Osterberg eliminated in 29th place.
BREAK – 15min
Lvl 15 – 1500/3000/300 – 27 players – av stack 88.8k
We lost Kinno Keinanen in the last hand before the break and return to level 15 on three tables of nine.
Marcin Trela was eliminated in 27th place after 3bet jamming 17bigs from the big blind over Andre Grech’s middle position open.
Grech called the bet and flipped As6s against Trela’s KdJd. Three four on the flop left Trela with 6 outs, none of which fancied coming to the party.
Shortly after redbet online qualifier Oskar Johannesson was eliminated, but we’re sure he wasn’t bothered because he did not even turn up to play Day2. We like to think it’s a chilled tournament, but you probably need to at least turn up if you want to win!
Markus Larsson joined the eliminations list in 25th place leaving 8 players on each of the three remaining tables.
Michael Jenson joins a growing queue of Scandis that are busting this tourney. He found AK and got it all in preflop against the very hung-over Miraj Patel.
Patel had pocket nines and the runout held him good.
Christoph Kohen busted in 23rd place.
Lvl 16 – 1500/3000/300 – 22 players – av stack 109k
Cyril Sievet leaves the field in 22nd place.
Guilio Spampinato eliminated in 21st place.
Gregor Abymar exits the stage in 20th place having fought well to stay alive for so long as he started the day with only 12500 chips; unlucky!
Kevin Lee down in 19th place.
Lvl 17 – 2k/4k/400 – 18 players – av stack 133k
No movement in Lvl 17. Stacks are deep and players were hungry, so they all hung in until the dinner break.
Break – 30 mins
Lvl 18 – 3k/6k/500 – 18 players – av stack 138k
We have just lost Lena Teuha in 18th place.
Lvl 19 – 4k/8k/600 – 15players – av stack 160k
We’re 6 players off the cash and we’ve just lost David Hodgkins and Aleksander Jensen.
Fabrizo Naselli eliminated in 15th place.
Gaetano Caruana eliminated in 14th place.
Lvl 20 – 5k/10k/1k – 13 players – av stack 184k
Jonus Larsson hits the rail in 13th place so it’s two tables of six players remaining, with 3 more eliminations before the money.
Break 15 mins
Lvl 21 – 6k/12k/1k – 12 players – av stack 200k
Lots of short stack allins and calls, but no eliminations as the poker deities seem to be smiling on the underdogs here tonight!
Miraj Patel hits the rail in 12th place after openinng from the button with K5s and then calling the 3bet show that had him covered from Andre Grech.
Grech had A9 and it held.
Lvl 22 – 8k/16k/1k – 10 players
Mark Adams was eliminated in 11th place and Ina Pavlova was unfortunately the bubble.
9th Reza Haack €288

Lvl 23 – 10k/20k/2k – 7 players
7th Henning Flick €576
6th Mark Berman €864

Pokermamma has a 5/1 chip advantage against the young buck, but she’s got years of experience to throw back at him!
2nd Jackie Cachia €2880
1st Andre Grech €4320
