Action Of the Day
Play got underway at 3pm Eastern time, and while they played down to 864 players at the end of Day 1, registration was still open until the start of Day 2. When the cards finally got into the air for Day 2, 1,084 players were at the virtual tables ready for action.
It didn't take long to get into the money. The bubble burst right after the start of Day 2's Level 3, and action went very quickly after that. Shortly after the bubble burst, GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos made a bit of a stir, spending some time at the top of the chip stacks, but ultimately he fell in 86th place for $3,249. Another ambassador that ran into the final 100 was Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier. He was never playing the biggest stack in the room, but he still managed to navigate his way to 67th for $3,783. Another interesting player to go deep in this one was "QuackQuack89". They made it to 22nd for $7,999, but they did it playing from the coldest, and southern-most place on earth, Antarctica.
It was about 7 hours after cards were dealt that they made the final table. It was almost an hour before "CarneAmigo", who had led the tournament at a few points, bowed out in 9th place for $24,599. "Dosobyc", "THE EPIDEMICS", and "Kevin Pu" then went out in rapid succession to take the game five-handed.
They played another half hour before "Goldig" got it in with a set versus two pair on the flop, and got crushed by a turn boat for 5th place. Lester "mon$terDad" Edoc fell about 15 minutes later in 4th for $159,979 to set up an epic three-way match.
They played almost an hour three-handed, trading the chips back and forth before all three finally decided to talk deal at the start of Level 31. They made the deal, and it didn't take too much longer to finish it out. "Neto 10" was out in 3rd about 10 minutes later with a deal-adjusted $362,695, but heads up went on for awhile.
There was a WSOPC Ring up for grabs, after all. It was about 15 minutes later that "pfckb" finally ended their run in 2nd place for $369,842 after the deal, while the 3rd place stack when the deal was struck pocketed $330,411 for the win, as well as the coveted World Series of Poker Circuit ring.
PokerNews will be back on the Circuit on Tuesday May 12th with Event #6: Deepstack Bounty Hunters $500K Gtd.
Once the deal was made, it didn't take long to finish it out. They ended up flipping for the ring with fours against overs and "BlaireauEnColere" held with the pair. "pfckb" had to settle for 2nd place for a score of $369,842 after the deal.
"pfckb" raised to 10M from the small blind, and "BlaireauEnColere" raised to 37,500 from the big. "pfckb" called and the flop came . "BlaireauEnColere" bet 25,080,000 and forced "pfckb" to fold.
Shortly after doubling up "BlaireauEnColere", "Neto 10" got the rest of their stack in against "pfckb" with a dominated queen, and had to settle for 3rd place and an adjusted prize of $362,695.
Neto 10 raised to 10,000,000 from the button, and "BlaireauEnColere" shoved for 81,987,906. "Neto 10" called, and and it was a not-so-classic race.
"BlaireauEnColere" didn't need the help, but the clubs by the turn gave them a lock for the double.
The final three players, all Brazilian, have agreed to a deal. New payout numbers will be reported after the tournament is over.
Play is paused before the start of Level 31 so players can discuss a deal.
"BlaireauEnColere" raised to 32M under the gun, and "Neto 10" shoved for a covering stack of 152,562,340. "BlaireauEnColere" called off their remaining stack in a race.
"Neto 10" needed to hit to knock "BlaireauEnColere" out, and they did hit the flop. "BlaireauEnColere" turned the set though and managed to double to stay alive.
