Day 2 Completed
Day 2 Completed
It took a little over nine hours to whittle the 36-runner field down to our final table of six. That is fairly good going for a poker tournament, but if we are honest, it felt like a drag compared to the crazy speed of yesterday.
Chip leader coming in tomorrow’s final table is Nicolas Fierro who bagged up 349,000 chips. He started the day as chip leader, and although he lost it for a lot of the day, he ended as clear chip leader. Here’s how the remaining six will line up tomorrow:
|6||Jarred Solomon||South Africa||266,500|
Rifat Palovic was the unfortunate player with the final table bubble tag. He busted soon after the final seven came together on one table. Nicloas Fierro took the Swedish scalp when his bettered Palevic’s on a board.
The story of the day must belong to Dovzhenko though. He came back with just 2,800 chips today and yet, here he is still in with nearly one hundred times what he started with. It'll be the comeback story of the year if he goes on to win tomorrow.
Those not quite as fortunate as him who had their hopes dashed included: Antony Lellouche, Victor Ramdin, Ludovic Lacay Alexander Kostritsyn and Roberto Romanello.
Until tomorrow where play will restart at 1pm. You’ll be able to find all the action here on pokernews.com and on the live stream at wsop.com. A second PLO and a fifth gold bracelet of the series will be awarded in the gloriously decadent surrounding of the Hotel Prestige.
And that's it. Rifat Palevic just got eliminated bringing us down to the final six players. Palevic started seven handed play with 100,000 chips but in two big pot he lost all of them. We caught the first hand on the river with on the board. Palevic had bet out 24,000 and Fierro was in the tank. After thinking for quite some time he called and Palevic showed . Fierro turned over his and raked in the pot.
Palevic was far from happy and limped the next hand in the under the gun position. They ended up four-way to the flop which showed . Both blinds checked and Palevic bet pot, 20,000. Fierro made the call giving us heads up action on the turn. The turn was the and Fierro betted pot. Palevic only had 18,000 chips behind and made the frustrated call.
The river was the ending the final table bubble very quickly and giving a final table of six.
This 6-Max tournament has become a 7-Max affair, just until we lose one player. It's unfair to play one four-hand and one three-handed table. This is how they will line up for tomorrow's final table, minus the next player to be eliminated, obviously.
From the small blind Michel Dattani raised to 8,000 getting called by Devonshire who was in the big blind. The flop came down and Dattani bet 10,000. Devonshire potted and Dattani put the rest of the chips in the middle.
The turn was the and the river the ending Devonshire deep run. During the Main Event in Las Vegas he just missed out on making the final table finishing in 12th place so yet again he just misses out on making the final table in a WSOP event.
John Nahum departed from the tournament the very next hand, He was heads-up with Philippe Boucher to a where all the chips went flying in the middle.
Nahum: for an over pair.
Boucher: for a straight.
The turn and river came and Boucher's straight held up to eliminate Boucher.
If there was an award for the players who played the most hands and had the biggest swings it would most definitely be Victor Ramdin. Unfortunately he came up short in the end finishing in tenth place cashing €10,261. In the final hand Nicolas Fierro raised to 6,000 and Ramdin decided to pot making it 25,500. Fierro took his time and eventually made the call.
The flop came down and Ramdin pushed all-in for his last 37,000 chips. Fierro made the call and we got to see their cards.
The turn was the and the river the giving Fierro runner-runner flush. Ramdin kept smiling and shook some players hands before leaving to collect his money.
Victor Ramdin is still in most of the pots playing out at his table. The last one didn't go to plan though.
He was heads-up with Nicolas Fierro and the two had made it to the river with around 45,000 in the middle. The board read and Ramdin led out for 30,000 after Fierro had checked behind on the turn.
The Chilean took a while to call, but call he did.
"Queens-up", said Ramdin before tabling .
It was no good though as his Fierro opened the winning before asking his opponent, "Was that a value bet or a bluff, or don't you know?"
