Day 1b Completed

Marco Della Tommasino Leads After Day 1b of WPT Amsterdam Main Event

Level 9 : 400/800, 100 ante

Day 1b of the 2016 World Poker Tour Amsterdam €3,300 Main Eevnt generated 172 entries. Quite a lot of them had already tried the day before on Day 1a, but gave it another shot after busting their first bullet. The 172 of Day 1b combined with the 115 of Day 1a made for a total field of 287. That number can still grow as registration will remain open till the start of Day 2, so look for an update on Thursday.

Ending the day as chip leader was Marco Della Tommasino from Italy with 183,400. Right on his heels were Mark McGovern from the United Kingdom, accumulating 179,700 in chips, and Artur Koren with 174,700. Kees Alblas (162,000) and Marcel Goldenbelt (139,200) were a couple of hometown players finishing the day with impressive stacks.

Amongst the players on their second bullet was Farid Yachou, who tried Tuesday but couldn't get things going and busted before the dinner break on that starting day. Yachou, who won this event last year and won the World Poker Tour Tournament of Champions last month, started out doing better on Wednesday, but unfortunately busted in the last level of the night. The dream of a third win in a WPT events is still alive, but this must not have been the way he had envisioned it and Yachou will have to try his hand at the next stop.

Another player that played on Day 1a and gave it another go on Day 1b was Paul Newey. Remarkably, Newey survived Day 1a, though short with 17,700. He was the sole player to make use of the option to play both starting days and have the best stack move forward. He busted on Day 1b, so he'll have to do with 17 big blinds on Day 2.

Noah Boeken was another player to reenter, but he didn't make it again. The Dutch European Poker Tour and Master Classics of Poker champion busted in the penultimate level of the day when his fives couldn't beat ace-king. Boeken was thinking about entering again right before the start of Day 2, so he still has a chance to end this endeavor in the black.

Boeken's former mentor, Marcel Lüske, did better, as the Dutch all-time money leader, according to Hendon Mob, ended the day with 58,100.

The life of the party was, as always, Tobias Peters. He chatted all day long, and had the right table to do so with talkative players like Steve Warburton, Jer el Salsero, Rob Strong, and Kees van Brugge. It was van Brugge who tangled the most with Peters during the day, and the two played one of the more remarkable hands we saw. Peters bet-called the river in that hand with third pair, no kicker, and was right as van Brugge turned over nothing but ace-deuce high.

On Thursday, Day 2 will come. Registration will remain open till the start of play at 2 p.m. local time, and you can check back then for continuing coverage of the World Poker Tour Amsterdam Main Event right here on PokerNews.com.

The Last 3 Hands

Level 9 : 400/800, 100 ante

The day is almost done, the bagging and tagging is to begin soon. We'll report back to you as soon as we have end of day chip counts.

Brader Bets Twice

Level 9 : 400/800, 100 ante

The first player to act made it 1,600 and from middle position Thomas Brader three-bet to 4,200. Action folded back to the initial raiser and he called.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{K-Spades} and Brader bet 4,500 once it was checked to him. His continuation bet was called, after which both of them checked the {J-Clubs} on the turn. The under the gun player checked again on the {9-Diamonds} river, and Brader bet 11,400. Brader's opponent thought about it for a bit before folding.

Muijlkens Collects Two Scalps

Level 9 : 400/800, 100 ante

Action folded to Dutchman Danny Muijlkens and he raised it up to 2,100. His neighbor Sandro Pitzanti in the cutoff shoved all in for 15,400, followed by a shove from small blind Pieter van Gils for 16,300. The decision got back on Muijlkens and he tanked for a bit before tossing in some 5,000-chips to call.

Danny Muijlkens: {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Sandro Pitzanti: {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Pieter van Gils: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Van Gils had the best hand, but the {9-Spades}{J-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop made things a bit iffy for him. The {3-Hearts} on the turn made Pitzanti exclaim a shout of joy, but he wasn't home safe just yet as Muijlkens had just hit a set. The {9-Hearts} on the turn paired the board and that meant the end of it for both Van Gils and Pitzanti.

As the two left the table, Muijlkens started stacking and told the table that pocket threes really was his hand, and that he had won a large sum with it just last week. Well, it's working for him, Muijlkens now has a stack worth over 100,000.

Van Wesemael Eliminated

Level 8 : 300/600, 75 ante

Sander van Wesemael's seat was empty, and former neighbor Thomas Brader was kind enough to fill us in on the details of his bust out.

Govert Metaal limped in under the gun and an American player raised to 2,000. Van Wesemael shoved all in from the button for his last 10,000 and both blinds and Metaal folded. The initial raiser made the call holding {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, and beat out Van Wesemael's {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}.
