Can Team Pro Lopes Win a Second Winamax SISMIX Main Event?

Winamax Team Pro Bruno Lopes

For more than twenty years, Bruno Lopes has been synonymous with French rap under his stage name Kool Shen. During that time he's made EPT final tables, won WPT titles and in 2016 won the Winamax SISMIX Main Event for €78,341.

Now, three years later, Lopes is through to Day 3 hoping to make history by becoming the first player to win the event twice. The Winamax Team Pro has outlasted over 2,000 players to make it this far - already more than double the 901 entrants he beat back in 2016.

However, he starts Day 3 as one of the short stacks with just twelve big blinds, so will have to put on a masterclass if he is to overhaul the chip leaders.

Tim Hartmann is currently sitting in top position after bagging over 15 million chips yesterday. There is a gap of three million to Morgan Aceto, and then a further gap of four million to the rest of the pack. It will be interesting to follow both Hartmann and Aceto as to how they approach the early stages, both with well over 50 big blinds to start the day.

The twenty players who will resume play at 12:30 pm are all guaranteed €5,300, but will be eyeing up the €120,000 for first place.

1€ 120,000
2€ 85,000
3€ 61,500
4€ 44,000
5€ 32,000
6€ 24,000
7€ 17,990
8-9€ 14,000
10-11€ 11,000
12-14€ 8,350
15-17€ 6,500
18-20€ 5,300
