Bad Start for Laanemets

Gert Laanemets

It seemed nothing could go wrong for Gert Laanemets during the last Coolbet Open Main Event Day 1a in October where he ended the day as the chip leader. Today, it seems nothing could go right for the Estonian who is down to 6,000 in chips.

Mathias Siljander and Gert Laanements check the {j-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop before Laanemets bets 700 into a pot of around 3,000. Villem-Henrik Koitmaa folded before Siljander and Pan Sandmo both called.

It was checked around to Laanemets again after the {10-Hearts} came on the turn and he bet 2,100 leaving 6,000 behind. Siljander quickly folded and Sandmo called after pausing for a minute.

Sandmo quickly checked after the {6-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Laanemets paused for 30 seconds before he checked behind. Sandmo turned over {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for the flush and scooped the pot after Laanemets tossed his hand into the muck.

Bremseth Off to a Hot Start

Jaxon • Level 4: 100-200, 200 ante

Norway's Terje Bremseth just got into the tournament and is off to a hot start having moved to the action table with Jan Christian Kongsgaard and Anton Komissarov.

We caught up with a hand after the {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts} came on the flop with about 12,000 in the middle. A player checked before Bremseth bet 7,250. Komissarov thought for a moment before he folded. Kongsgaard then tanked for a few minutes and was mumbling some numbers to himself.

He eventually folded and asked Bremseth if he had it. Bremseth quickly flashed the {q-Clubs} for at least top pair without revealing his second hole card.

Coolbet Founder Jan Svendsen is here for action. We noticed him on another table and he is onto his third bullet hoping to build up a big stack.

Sepp Flushes Kongsgaard

Jaxon • Level 4: 100-200, 200 ante

With about 10,000 in the pot with the {j-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} on the board, Jan Christian Kongsgaard fired out for 7,300 and Aare Sepp called.

Anton Komissarov tanked for a couple of minutes before he eventually folded.

"Flush?" said Kongsgaard while waving his cards in the air?

It didn't appear Kongsgaard wanted to show his hand but he tabled {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a missed straight draw.

Sepp turned over {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for the flush Kongsgaard predicted.

"I knew you had the flush," said Kongsgaard who is now down to half a starting stack.

Aare Sepp EE 45,000
Anton Komissarov EE 17,000 -17,000
Jan Christian Kongsgaard NO 15,000 -17,500

Players are on their first 15-minute break of the day.

Kongsgaard Gets Revenge Against Komissarov

Jaxon • Level 3: 75-150, 0 ante
Jan Christoffer Kongsgaard
Jan Christoffer Kongsgaard

Jan Christian Kongsgaard was low on chips after what he shared was getting hit with a one outer by Anton Komissarov when his opponent hit a nine of the river with pocket nines and Kongsgaard also having a nine in his hand. Revenge was just served as Kongsgaard was able to win round two against Komissarov.

Komissarov opened from the cutoff to 600 and got a call from Kongsgaard in the big blind.

Kongsgaard check-raised a bet from 500 to 1,700 after the {3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Spades} came on the flop and got a call from Komissarov.

"Nines again?" asked Kongsgaard referring to the hand where his opponent took a bunch of his chips.

Kongsgaard led out for 3,750 after the {6-Diamonds} came on the turn and got a quick call from his opponent.

The {8-Diamonds} completed the board on the river and the dealer initially thought Kongsgaard checked since he was shuffling some chips close to the table.

"No, no, I will bet," said Kongsgaard before he fired out for 7,225 leaving a single blue 5,000 chip behind.

"I want to give you some of your chips back," said Komissarov before he made the call.

Kongsgaard had {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for flopped trips and scooped the pot after Komissarov turned over {k-Spades}{k-Hearts} for two pair.

"I had to play that hand to get revenge," said Kongsgaard to the table and to Coolbet Open's Thomas Pasgaard Hviid who caught the tail end of the hand from the rail.

Lamagnere Wins the Pot After the Floor Called

Jaxon • Level 3: 75-150, 0 ante

France's Matthieu Lamagnere is one of the most successful poker players joining the early action of the Coolbet Open Main Event with nearly $500,000 in live tournament cashes.

Villem-Henrik Koitmaa limped and two others limped behind before Lamagnere jammed for what seemed to be more than 4,000. Koitmaa didn't realize his opponent was all in and put 50 chips into the pot after seeing some of the others call for two black 100 chips.

The dealer wasn't sure whether Koitmaa said "call" or not before he put in his bet. The entire table confirmed this was not the case and the floor was called. The floor ruled that Koitmaa either had to leave the 50 extra chips in the pot or call.

Koitmaa sighed with relief before he said with a smile that he would fold. The other two players folded behind and Lamagnere scooped a small pot.
