Action of the Day

With unlimited entries allowed in this tournament, the action was chaotic from the start. Big names like Fabrizio Gonzalez, Fedor Holz, Yuri Dzivielevski, Benjamin Rolle, Ole Schemion, Max Kruse, Patrick Leonard, and Timothy Adams for example managed to stick around until the registration closed but all busted without making it into the money. In the end, it was Chi Zhang who would bubble the tournament when he check-shoved with a flopped flush draw to see Speiser look him up with the nut-flush draw and get there on the turn.

Artur Martirosian was the first player to cash and he was followed by a plethora of well-known players like David Peters, Connor Drinan, Michael Addamo, Ami Barer, Darren Elias, Dietrich Fast, Rui Ferreira, Wiktor Malinowski, Jans Arends, Anatoly Filatov, and Ryan Riess. But Dario Sammartino would become the final table bubble boy when he tank-shoved with the flopped top pair. Kulcsar had flopped the set of queens to get the tournament down to the all-important last table.

The final table would end up lasting just over two hours. Kulcsar held a commanding chip lead and kept increasing it but Gottlieb was hot on his heels. Goh fell to Wigg in a three-way all-in where Wigg doubled through Speiser. The shorter stacks kept getting shorter and in another three-way all-in pot, the players who were involved split it when the flush came on the board. But immediately after, Gottlieb eliminated Wigg, Speiser, and Ladva when he flopped a set and improved to a full house to claim three bounties.

Several double-ups would follow before Kelopuro fell to the hands of Klodnicki while Gottlieb took out Muller next to increase his lead as he held over half of the chips in play. But it would be Gottlieb who would claim Kulcsar's bounty when he turned the higher pair than the Hungarian player. Klodnicki still had the chip lead but it was Gottlieb who would put the pressure on his opponent to take over the chip lead and ground Klodnicki down.

Klodnicki would double up three times in a row to switch things around but Gottlieb raise-called the shove of the American with queens and flop a set to leave Klodnick behind with one big blind. Klodnicki survived one all-in but couldn't win the second one to bust as the runner-up for $102,237 and $36,719 in bounties.
