Players Info - Day 2
Stoenescu Gets A Fold
Marc Levy opened to 23,000 in the cutoff and was called by Andrei Stoenescu in the big blind.
Action checked through the flop to the turn where Stoenescu led out for 18,000. Levy made the call to send the two players to the river.
Stoenescu did not slow down on the river, instead firing off a chunky 50,000. That bet was enough to get his opponent to fold his holding and keep Stoenescu's red hot start to the day going.
British Poker Player John Howard Ships $1,100 NLH Wynn Summer Classic Tournament
The top two finishers in the Wynn Summer Classic's June 4 $1,100 buy-in no-limit hold'em tournament are from the United Kingdom. John Howard took first place for $58,942, while his fellow countryman, Raul Martinez Gallero, was the runner-up and received $36,385.
The tournament had an impressive field of 238 entrants. With $233,240 in the pot, there wasn't much of a sweat for the Wynn's poker room to hit the $200,000 guarantee. Thus far, the Wynn Summer Classic has been absolutely crushing it in terms of attendance, and this event was no outlier.
Howard beat a tough field that included some talented pros such as Justin Liberto (7th place for $7,557). He didn't just score big at the Wynn. The champ essentially earned his first ever recorded live tournament cash. According to Hendon Mob, his only other previous cash was for $28 back in 2009.
