Day 2 completed
Day 2 completed
As we head into Day 3, the 32 players we started today with have been decimated to a much more manageable four.
We lost a plethora of A-list poker names today - Phil Ivey, Ilari Sahamies and Neil Channing were among the folks who preceded last casualty of the day Daniel Negreanu to the rail. But check out our final four!
Gus Hansen vs. Andrew Feldman
Jim Collopy vs. Ram Vaswani
We've got our crazy Scandie in the form of Hansen, Collopy the online tournament specialist, Feldman representing the nosebleed online cash players, and Hendon Mobster Vaswani - the only one of our semi-finalists already in possession of a bracelet - representing for the old school live players.
All our four finalists are now guaranteed £96,212, but they will all be salivating more over the prospect of the £288,409 that goes to the winner, not to mention that all-important golden wrist candy.
We'll be back here at 3pm when we will be playing first down to two players, and then it's best of three matches until we have just one winner. Be sure to join us back here for the thrilling conclusion of this heads-up odyssey.
After the last hand there would be no more flops played due to Negreanu's stack size. Feldman was first to act and he slid over a stack of 25k chips, enough to cover Negreanu's stack. Negrenu looked at one card and said "Good start" before seeing the other one and snap-calling.
Negreanu was in great shape but his hope faded quickly on the board. Feldman found a three-outer and will move forward to face Gus Hansen tomorrow. It doesn't get any easier, does it?
Negreanu could be in some serious trouble this time.
Andrew Feldman made it 24,000 from the button and Negreanu re-popped to 64,000. Feldman called and they saw a flop.
Negreanu now led out for 55,000. Again, Feldman flatted. The pot was getting pretty big now.
Negreanu bet out 78,000 - and this time Feldman went all in. Negreanu huffed and puffed for a while, but eventually passed. He's down to just 148,000 now.
Both players are back in their seats, and the clock is running once more.
Negreanu got back from the bathroom, but Andrew Feldman has disappeared. We're guessing he'll be back shortly.
Negreanu - 322,000
Feldman - 638,000
They've stopped the clock mid-level so that Mr. Daniel Negreanu can go to the little boys' room.
Forgive us if we don't follow him there.
Level 23 started
The Daniel Negreanu shove-fest continues here at the Empire, but we have yet to see a showdown.
Negreanu limped in on the button and called Andrew Feldman's raised to 28,000 to see a flop. Feldman bet out 28,000, but Negreanu went all in for around 200,000, and following a snap-fold (glad to see they're easing off on the tanking), the pot went to Negreanu.
