Scafini Bags Monster Stack on Day 1d of €1,100 FPS Main Event

ajlamers • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

After four flights of action in Event #1: €1,100 FPS Main Event, a total of 287 players have advanced to Day 2 and are guaranteed at least a min-cash. Leading the way come tomorrow, Lucas Scafini will be the only player with a seven-figure chip stack after bagging a whopping 1,101,000 chips on Day 1d. There were a total of 349 entries in the fourth and final flight and 52 players advanced to Day 2.

It was the shortest flight in terms of time due to the 20-minute levels, but in terms of levels, this flight went the furthest as they reached level 18 with the blinds at 5,000/10,000. Scafini took full advantage of the extended length and pushed his big stack around in the last few levels.

The Italian was also the one who burst the bubble at 2 a.m. when Ikam Benyeffou flopped top pair from the big blind and shoved into Scafini's pocket aces. Scafini held on to put a rest to all of the Day 1 flights but will still have a long road ahead of him if he wishes to capture the title.

Some other big stacks moving on from Day 1d include [Removed:388] (607,000), Teddy Kefalas (595,000), Alexandre Poulain (493,000), and Jamie Flynn (489,000). Some other notables that will have a shot at the title include Tibor Nagygyorgy (136,000), Ana Marquez (118,000), and Aylar Lie (50,000). One of the surprising stories was Andrea Albonetti who squeaked into the money with just 3,000 chips, less than one big blind.

When the action resumes for Day 2, the blinds will be rolled back to 2,000/5,000 with a 5,000 big blind ante. That was the level that Day 1c finished where 139 players advanced out of a total of 927 entries. The blind levels will also increase to 60-minutes in length going forward and a champion will be crowned on Day 4.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the tournament floor to bring you all of the live updates throughout the event going forward.

Scafini Bursts the Bubble, Crosses One Million Chips

ajlamers • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

Lucas Scafini raised it up from the cutoff and Ikam Benyeffou defended from the big blind. The flop came {j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and Benyeffou shoved all in for his last 63,000 chips. Scafini instantly called and they waited until the action was complete at all other tables.

Ikam Benyeffou: {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Lucas Scafini: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

The turn was the {4-Hearts} which took away some of Benyeffou's outs. The river brought the {2-Hearts} which eliminated Benyeffou and brought an end to the day.

ajlamers • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

There are currently 53 players left and the tournament has now entered the hand-for-hand portion. When one more player is eliminated, the remaining 52 players will bag and tag their chips for Day 2 tomorrow.

Flynn Flips Da Silva to the Rail

ajlamers • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Jamie Flynn opened to 16,000 in middle position and Andrey Da Silva shoved all in for 118,000 in the cutoff. The action folded back to Flynn who weighed his option before calling.

Andrey Da Silva: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Jamie Flynn: {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

The board ran out {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Flynn held on to win the flip, sending Da Silva to the rail just shy of the money.

Big Stacks in the Room

ajlamers • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

As the money bubble approaches, there are a few big stacks that are starting to emerge. However, Lucas Scafini is by far and away the chipleader as he looks to close in on the seven-figure mark before play halts for the night.
