Chris Brammer's early good work has come undone after Lauri Meidla flopped a set against Brammer's overpair. The board was reading when the money went in, Brammer's couldn't improve against Meidla's after a turn and river.
Meidla moved up to 44,000 while Brammer dropped to 25,000.
Scott Seiver opened on the button for 900 and got one call from the player in the small blind. The flop was and a bet of 1,200 from Seiver got a call from the small blind.
The turn card saw both players check and on the river card the small blind decided to lead out for 3,500. Seiver clarified the bet and made the call to see his opponent’s . No good versus the trips of Seiver.
We reported earlier that Kresten “El Toro” Nielsen had a long road back to remain in contention and since then he has set about doing exactly that. The smile is back on his face and there is a much more sizable stack of chips in front of him.
Matthias De Meulder is one of the players seated in the much smaller Tournament Room B. He was up to 60,000 early on, and still hovers around that stack. De Meulder got up from the table and told us the details of the hand he doubled in at the beginning of the day.
The player in the cut off made a raise to 400 in the 75/150 level, and with off suit De Meulder called on the button. The player in the big blind wanted to call by throwing in four 100 chips, but made a mistake and had three 100 and one 500 chip, which was declared a raise to 800.
De cut off made the call, which told De Meulder that he had the best hand at that point. De Meulder re squeezed to 2,800 and the big blind made the call, the cut off now folded.
The flop brought and the big blind checked. De Meulder bet 3,200 and the big blind made the call. The turn brought the to the table and the big blind checked. De Meulder now bet 5,800 and the big blind shoved for 23,000 total.
De Meulder laughed that that gave him a headache, but after some minutes of tanking, the Belgian Team Pro made the call.
De Meulder was up against and his hand helt after the hit the river.
Ludovic Geilich made a splash recently when his appearance on the EPT London Main Event feature table was televised and he demonstrated his spectacularly aggressive style of play. In a recent hand he three-bet an under-the-gun raiser to 2,350 and it looked for a while that it was going to work before a four-bet to 6,000 saw Geilich release his hand.
Geilich is used to big swings but so far today has been holding steady around starting stack.
