Xu Leads After Day 2 in €1,100 FPS Paris Main Event

Nível 23 : Blinds 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante
Aiguo Xu

The second of four days in the €1,100 France Poker Series FPS Paris Main Event has wrapped up with just 61 remaining after the day began with 470 players. Leading the way is China's Aiguo Xu with a stack of 3,745,000, followed not far behind by fellow big stacks Vasyl Zabrodskyy (2,540,000), Alan Goasdoue (2,540,000) and Mario Re (2,330,000).

The tournament has already been one to remember as it drew a record-breaking 2,071 entrants, besting the previous FPS Main Event record of 1,918 runners set at 2022 EPT Prague. The eventual champion will take home the trophy and top prize of €287,830, while each returning player is guaranteed a payday of at least €4,570.

Some notables who survived to see Day 3 include Julien Sitbon, Kenny Hallaert, Gianluca Speranza and Day 1 chip leaders Joey Weissman, Jean Labryga and Loic Vaux.

Day 2 Action

As the surviving players from the three starting flights combined on Day 2, it didn't take long for hundreds of players to bust to bring the field down to a few dozen tables. Some of those who made early exits include Antoine Labat,
Jason Wheeler, Zhong Chen, Dinesh Alt and PokerStars Team Online Pro Lasse Jagd Lauritsen.

Sebastien Botschi was eliminated by Nicolas Tytgat on the soft money bubble before Guillaume Victor Pujebet and Mani Akbari went out at the same time to chop the minimum cash and take home €855 each.

After that, the rapid-fire bust outs presumed as Nils Pudel, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, Alexandre Reard and EPT and WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson.

There were plenty of big bluffs on Day 2, including one that had Dario De Paz busting a 100-big blind stack after getting it in with ace-three against the Big Slick of Mathieu Rabalison and failing to improve. Just a few hours earlier, the cigarette-toting David Sacksick fell when he got in a blind versus blind raising war and and five-bet shoved with queen-three only to be called by the pocket queens of Adi Rajkovic.

But some of the day's bluffs were successful, including one where Duc Quy Nguyen bluffed two streets with just jack-high to take a pot off Vasyl Zabrodskyy.

Day 3 will kick off at noon on Level 24 with blinds of 15,000/30,000/30,000 as the field gets closer to a winner, who will be crowned on Day 4.

That wraps up the PokerNews live reporting team's Day 2 coverage, but be sure to check back tomorrow to keep up on the Day 3 action.

The final few hands of the night just played out. Jean Gaye raised to 75,000 and Aiguo Xu reraised to 225,000. Gaye folded before saying, "We will have plenty of time to play tomorrow".

The next hand, Aiguo raised again, this time from the button, laughing as he attempted to create a bit of last minute action. But Wuai-Cheng Tsang turned the tables with a reshove. Aiguo folded and Tsang showed {q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

Three-Bet Pot Checks Around

In one of the last hands of the day, Jordan Levy opened to 55,000 from early position. From the hijack position, Alexis Lucarini then three-bet to 135,000. Eventually it folded back around to Levy, who called. Both players checked through the {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades} board.

Levy showed {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds} but the king-high was not enough against Lucarini, who showed ace-high with {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

Levy Reraises the Turn to Take It Down

Nível 23 : Blinds 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante

Duman Vural raised from the cutoff and Jordan Levy made the call on the button. The small blind also came along to see a flop, which fell {6-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}. All three players checked.

The turn came the {5-Diamonds} and action checked to Vural, who made it 75,000 to go. Levy raised to 175,000 and both of his opponents folded.

Kesänen Folds and Gets Shown

Nível 23 : Blinds 10,000/25,000, 25,000 ante

Jan-Mikael Kesänen raised to 50,000 from middle position. Ibrahim Ghassan on the button announced he was all in, and it folded back to Kesänen who asked for a count. The amount turned out to be 625,000 chips, which was around the same as Kesänen played himself.

Kesänen thought for several minutes in silence, when suddenly he asked his opponent ''Do you show if I fold?''. Ghassan said he would, which led to Kesänen folding quickly.

Ghassan kept his promise and showed the whole table the {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} he wanted to wager all his chips with.
