Negreanu Folds River

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante

From the hijack seat, Daniel Negreanu raised to 1,175. Rafael Ubeda reraised from the cutoff seat to 2,900, and action folded back to Negreanu. He called, and the flop came down {9-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Both players checked the flop and also the {2-Hearts} turn to see the {7-Hearts} land on the river. Negreanu checked, and Ubeda bet 4,100. Negreanu folded, and Ubeda won the pot.

Farrell Explains Poker

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante

Niall Farrell had a fairly uninteresting and unproductive first six levels of the day, picking a pot up here and there but not really getting anything going. That has changed since the last time we caught up with him and he gave us an exclusive and in-depth run down on just how he managed to run his stack up.

“It’s been a good level. I’ve matched my cards a lot, which has helped.” Farrell explained. So now you know.

Negreanu Doesn't Like To Fold

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante
Daniel Negreanu
Daniel Negreanu

From the cutoff seat, Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu raised to 1,175. Cyprus' Imad Saab reraised from the big blind to 3,675, and Negreanu called.

"I don't like to fold, you know that," said Negreanu after making the call. "Folding isn't fun."

The flop came down {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, and as soon as Saab tossed out a bet, Negreanu folded.

Geilich Squeeze

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante

Ludovic Geilich was in the small blind looking at an early position raise to 1,000 and 2 callers. This is tantamount to a red rag to a bull and Geilich promptly squeezed to 4,000.

The original raiser wasn’t having any of it though and after some thought made it 8,000. Geilich took a minute before looking back at his hole cards one more time and throwing then away.

Christmas Came Early This Year for Moolhuizen

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante

Mateusz Moolhuizen, who cashed a whopping five times in EPT Vienna last season, qualified for this event at the last moment, and is doing well so far today.

He got up from the table and told about a remarkable hand he played a bit earlier.

In that hand the player under the gun opened to 800, and the older very aggressive player directly to the player's left, three bet to 3,000. Moolhuizen in the big blind found {A-}{A-} and cold four bet to 6,000. The first player folded, the aggressive player made the call.

The flop came {10-}{10-}{7-} rainbow and Moolhuizen checked. His opponent pushed his remaining 15,000 tot the middle, Moolhuizen called. Moolhuizen's opponent had {Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for no pair and no draw, and didn't catch runner runner.

Danzer Done For

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante
George Danzer
George Danzer

Team PokerStars Pro George Danzer has just been eliminated from the main event. There was an open to 1,000 from Andrew Taylor and a call before Danzer shoved for 12,300. What happened next was surely not what he expected.

Taylor moved all in as did the second player. Danzer showed {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, Taylor the {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and the third player {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. As Danzer obsereved he had indeed run into the, “Top of their ranges.”

The board ran out {a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} giving Taylor the nut flush and Danzer an early night.

Wetemans Short

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante

EPT serial casher Jasper Wetemans is short, and has been for quite some time now.

Wetemans told us, with a smile, that he had to fold a big hand on the river four times so far today. The Dutchman, who cashed in this event in 2010 and 2011, is looking for a double up now.

De Korver and Grafton Sent Home

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante
Sam Grafton
Sam Grafton

EPT Monte Carlo champion Pieter de Korver and Sam Grafton have been eliminated from the tournament. Both their seats were empty.

A former table mate of De Korver told us that the Dutchman had shoved blind for his remaining ten big blinds from the small blind. The big blind made the call with {K-}{2-} and was ahead of De Korver's {9-}{3-} off suit. De Korver didn't improve and left the tournament.

Sam Grafton's former table mates were a bit more vague about the bust out that had happened. Though a story of an open, call from Jamilla von Perger and an over call from Grafton was started, and we heard something about a check jam on {9-}{7-}{2-}, soon the table agreed that we just had to write that it was a spewy move that ended Grafton's tournament. "As long as you add a smiley" they laughed.

So here we go:

"He fired three streets and I called him down with jack-high" we heard, but we all take that with a grain of salt. Just one thing is sure: Grafton is no longer active in the tournament.

Sam GraftonBust to @JamilavonPerger. Top boss! Gl to her and my friends still in!

Over 1,000 Players On Day 1b

Nível 7 : 250-500, 50 ante

It's a little early to be walking around the tournament rooms and see the yellow T25,000 chips in play, but that's what's going on here in Barcelona. The reason is that the field is simply too big on Day 1b and it is needed to conserve other chips to put into play with new players. There are 70 yellow T25,000 chips in play right now.

The field has grown to 1,009 entrants on Day 1b, and it's still growing with more and more alternates taking to the felt by the minute. This is now by far the largest European Poker Tour main event on European soil, and it could still become the largest EPT event ever.

When you add today's field with the 475 players from Day 1a, the current total is 1,484 players. Only two events have been larger — the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event in Season 7 and Season 6 with 1,560 entrants and 1,529 entrants, respectively.
