After a long day at the poker tables, only 24 players out of a record-setting field of 2,182 entries remain in the 2022 Winamax Poker Open Madrid €500 Main Event. All of them are vying to become the winner of the biggest six-max live poker tournament in the history of the French online poker and sports betting giant.

The biggest slice of the €960,080 prize pool is still up for grabs when the marquee event of the popular live poker series will play down to a winner on Sunday, May 15, 2022, at the Casino Gran Madrid in Torrelodones.

Nearly 400 hopefuls returned to their seats and most of them earned cash prizes, as the top 312 spots were paid at least €1,000. However, when the dust had settled past midnight, only four tables remained. Samuel Anclevic Bifarella topped the leaderboard after a late surge with a stack of 9,500,000, closely followed by Adrian Garcia Marin (9,000,000), and Nicolas Vayssieres (8,505,000).

The trio atop the leaderboard has more than 70 big blinds at their disposal. Other notables in the top ten include Omar Del Pino and Day 1d chip leader Joaquim Marques (4,430,000), while Hugues Mazerolle (3,785,000) and Anthone Soules (3,720,000) sit in the middle of the pack. Well-known Spanish poker veterans Juan Manuel Pastor (2,830,000) and Sergio Alonso Camunas (635,000) can be found near the bottom of the leaderboard.

Day 2 concluded once the field was whittled down to the final four tables and there are 25:16 minutes left in level 37 at blinds of 60,000-120,000 and a big blind ante of 120,000.

The early stages were filled with frantic eliminations leading up to a very tense bubble period, in which several all-in showdowns brought no casualties. Perhaps the biggest name on the rail prior to the paid spots was Winamax Sponsored Pro Adrian Mateos, who was unable to run up his short stack and fell in the first level of the day.

Ultimately, it was Thomas Lanterne who ended up as the bubble boy when he lost a flip with ace-queen against the pocket jacks of Alexandre Dana. However, it won't go home empty-handed as he will receive an entry to the next Winamax live poker event in Bratislava courtesy of the operator.

As can be expected, the eliminations thereafter came at an exhilarating speed and several dozen players built a waiting line at the payout desk until the next break alone. Pierre Calamusa was among them as he missed out on the chance to become the first two-time WPO Main Event champion. Despite starting the day second in chips, he had to settle for 233rd place (€1,050).

Fellow Winamax ambassadors Francois Pirault, Bruno Lopes and Davidi Kitai also cashed but failed to reach the top 50 spots. Kitai ended up second-best in a flip just prior to the dinner break and Lopes suffered the same fate shortly after the action recommenced when his ace-king didn't get there in a preflop contest against the pocket tens of Valentin Devooght.

As the field of remaining contenders rapidly declined, several players endeared heavy swings to their stack sizes. Start-of-the-day chip leader Jose Manuel Gonzalez and Nacho Barbero took over the top spot on several occasions but saw their hopes vanish on the final six tables. The end for Gonzalez came just before the final break of the night when he three-bet jammed ace-nine and Adrian Garcia Marin got there with king-queen suited.

Another eight players departed within 45 minutes thereafter to set the stage for the final day. The tournament will recommence at 12.30 pm noon local time and the Winamax crew will certainly deliver another top notch broadcast from start to finish on its Twitch and YouTube channels. The PokerNews team will also be there to provide as many key hands as possible along the way.

Day 2 Completed With 24 Players

zedmaster84 • Level 37: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

After an elimination on the feature table, the final 24 players are now bagging and tagging their chips for the night. The latest casualties will be provided in short order, full chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Corbacho Fernandez Last Casualty of the Night

Over on the live stream table, Nicolas Vayssieres raised to 210,000 with the {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and then faced the call of Hugues Mazerolle and the all-in of David Corbacho Fernandez for the last 470,000. Vayssieres only called the three-bet jam and folded when Mazerolle went over the top.

David Corbacho Fernandez: {j-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}
Hugues Mazerolle: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

The {q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop gave Corbacho Fernandez some outs but they all but vanished on the {9-Clubs} turn. It was all over on the {2-Diamonds} river and the Spaniard bowed out in 25th place.

Two Knockouts in a Row for Del Pino

Omar Del Pino
Omar Del Pino

Blind on blind, Jan Strazisar raise-called all-in for what appeared to have been nearly 20 blinds and was up against the red-hot running Omar Del Pino.

Jan Strazisar: {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Omar Del Pino: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

The {k-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop left Strazisar on very thin ice and his run then ended as soon as the {a-Hearts} appeared on the turn, while the {9-Hearts} river was not significant anymore.

Krystian Lisowski then open-jammed a shorter stack of around 1,250,000 and Del Pino called in the small blind.

Krystian Lisowski: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Omar Del Pino: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Bad news arrived for Lisowski on the {q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop but he remained ahead, which also applied for the {9-Hearts} turn. However, the {9-Diamonds} river brought the flush and the field was suddenly down to the final 25 players.

Mallon Finds his Fate

Nils Mallon
Nils Mallon

Over on the outer tables, Nils Mallon was all-in for the last few blinds following an open raise by Samuel Anclevic Bifarella, who had previously chipped up significantly.

David Alvarez Alejandre then went all-in over the top and Anclevic folded a pair of sevens face-up.

David Alvarez Alejandre: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Nils Mallon: {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}

The {j-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Hearts}{q-Spades} board provided just an inferior pair of eights for the German and he became the next casualty.

Mehamed Felted by Del Pino

zedmaster84 • Level 37: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Omar Del Pino was among the shortest stacks not long ago but scored a double. That vaulted him ahead of Alan Mehamed on the leaderboard and they then got the chips in preflop.

Alan Mehamed: {k-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Omar Del Pino: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

The {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{a-Spades}{10-Spades} board left Mehamed drawing dead on the turn and he was sent to the rail on the final five tables.

Pastor Bad Beats Alonso Camunas

Juan Manuel Pastor

Juan Manuel Pastor shipped it in for 1,400,000 and Sergio Alonso Camunas went over the top to isolate successfully, as Timothee Marlin forfeited the big blind from the next seat.

Juan Manuel Pastor: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Sergio Alonso Camunas: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The {a-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop gave Pastor a set of sevens, and he retained his lead on the {6-Clubs} turn. Nothing changed on the {8-Clubs} river either and Camunas was left with fumes once more.
