BKRF Investments

Day 1C is in the books, and King's Casino regular poker player who plays under the alias "BKRF Investments" is the chip leader with 325,500 chips. The third opening flight was by far the largest with 402 players entering.

At the end of the day, 94 remain from the field to join the 19 from Day 1A and 36 from Day 1B to play tomorrow in Day 2. Currently running is a turbo-charged Day 1D that has 120 entrants with late registration still open for a little while.

Among the exits today include some familiar faces including Unibet Pro Quentin Lecomte, King's Casino regular Roman Cieslek, Germany's Stephan Steven, massage establishment owner Chikkita, and local poker dealer and player Matus Schnierer. Additionally, fan favorites "Janja", Wansa Trensch, and online qualifier Attila Toth-Madi all hit the showers during the day.

"BKRF Investments" shared with us that his alias comes from his initials "BK" and initials of his good friend "RF". He went on to say, "Investments is because we like to burn money." True to his word, straight after he bagged his chips for the day, he ran to the cashier to buy into the €60 buy-in King's Hold'em Championship before late registration closed.

On the way to the table, the Day 1C chip leader shared, "I'm looking to burn more money." Overall, "BKRF Investments" currently sits in fourth place behind behind the overall chip leader from Lithuania, Rytas Staniukynas (446,000 chips), Day 1B chip leader from Germany, Jens Dengler (412,000 chips), and Lithuania's Tomas Steponkus (339,500 chips).

Day 2 resumes tomorrow at 14:00 local time. Tune into PokerNews for updates as they happen.

Psi0Nic's Plan Back Fires

Level 14 : 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

As seems to be always the case, Psi0Nic was in good spirits. This was even true after busting out when he jammed all in with {K-}{J-} and wound up being called by the player in the big blind who woke up with {K-}{K-}. Psi0Nic was unable to improve and is out of the tournament, however, his night of poker isn't over yet.

Psi0Nic shared with us that he plans to enter the €100 buy-in turbo knockout side event that starts in less than an hour. We overheard a few other players saying they were looking forward to playing it as well.

Psi0Nic Hopes to Double Up at Least Once

Level 14 : 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Another player we caught up with on break was Germany's Psi0Nic. He said he has been all-in a few times hoping to get called for a double-up.

He plans to continue this strategy during the last blind level of the night in hopes of coming back for Day 2 tomorrow with a good stack. He currently sits at less than 12 big blinds with around 46,000 chips.

Last Break in Day 1C

Level 13 : 1,500-3,000, 400 ante

Players are now on a 15 minute break in Day 1C, the last of the night. Dealers have been instructed to color up the 100-denomination chips.

“Be Patient. No One Wins A Tournament During The Day 1”

Level 13 : 1,500-3,000, 400 ante

“Players should always to be patient. They should not get worried if after five hours of play they still have the starting stack. After all, no one wins a tournament during the Day 1.”

During the afternoon, we sat down with Unibet Poker pro Quentin Lecomte and asked him for some advices to make it through an event like the PokerNews Cup.

“In tournaments like this one I see quite a lot of player playing very good poker for five hours and then lose everything in less than thirty minutes,” Leconte explained. “It’s something I find quite normal, as it used to happen to me as well when I started to play poker.”

“When you find yourself with the same stack you had in the beginning after playing for a lot of hours, you feel like you have to do something. That's a mistake,” Lecomte continued.

“It’s exactly the same reason why you shouldn’t give away chips only because you have five times the starting stack. You always need to be patient and do your best to make it through the tournament one small step after the other. This is the only way to win a poker tournament.”

Considering this advice comes from a guy who has more than $370,000 in live tournament winnings and who plays poker for a living - I think you may want to follow it.
