Hands # 8-12: Wiesler Opens Light; Bertilsson Four-Bet Shoves

Nível 30 : 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #8: Action folded to Bjorn Wiesler who opened from the small blind to 290,000 with {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}. Fabio Sperling in the big blind with {j-Diamonds}{4-Spades} let him have it.

Hand #9: Stephen Graner in the cut-off with {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} made it 200,000. Anton Bertilsson in the big blind thought about it, but gave up the {q-Spades}{2-Spades}.

Hand #10: Wiesler had {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs} in the cut-off and raised to 210,000. Bertilsson in the small blind with {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} thought but mucked and big blind Simon Mattsson defended with {q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}.

The flop was {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. Mattsson checked and Wiesler continued for 115,000. Mattsson called to see the turn come the {j-Diamonds}. They both checked to see the river fall the {2-Diamonds}. Mattsson then took the betting lead with a bet of 245,000 and Wiesler mucked.

Hand #11: Graner was under the gun with {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and opened for 200,000. Wiesler next to him had {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and three-bet to 510,000. It folded round to Graner and the current chip leader let this one go.

Hand #12: Anton Bertilsson had {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} in the cut-off and raised to 200,000. Mattsson held {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds} on the button and he three-bet to 475,000. The blinds folded and Bertilsson moved all in. Mattsson mucked his hand.

Remi Castaignon Eliminated in 7th Place (€129,390)

Hand #6: Fabio Sperling limped from the hijack with {A-Spades} {10-Clubs} and Stephen Graner checked his option in the big blind with {A-Hearts} {3-Hearts}. On the {8-Clubs} {7-Diamonds} {3-Spades} flop, Graner bet 125,000 and Sperling called to improve with the {10-Spades} turn. Graner checked, Sperling checked behind. The {6-Diamonds} saw no further action either and Sperling took down the pot.

Hand #7: Remi Castaignon moved all in for 810,000 from under the gun. Anton Bertilsson called in the hijack and all other players folded.

Castaignon: {7-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds}
Bertilsson: {A-Spades} {10-Hearts}

Both players found some help on the {6-Spades} {10-Clubs} {J-Spades} flop, the {4-Spades} on the turn and the {9-Spades} river gave Bertilsson the nut flush and sent Castaignon to the rail for €129,390. This also ensures that a new EPT champion will be crowned, as Castaignon was the last former Main Event winner in the field.

Hands #1-5: Mattsson Shoves Twice; Wiesler Once

Nível 30 : 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #1: Simon Mattsson min-raised to 200,000 with {9-Spades} {9-Diamonds} from the hijack and Bjorn Wiesler moved all in for 3,275,000 chips with {K-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}. Mattsson gave it some thought and then tossed the cards into the muck, not willing to go broke in the first hand.

Hand #2: Stephen Graner min-raised to 200,000 from the cutoff with {10-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} and Fabio Sperling called out of the big blind with {7-Hearts} {5-Hearts}. On the flop of {6-Spades} {J-Hearts} {6-Clubs}, Sperling check-folded to a 150,000-continuation bet of Graner.

Hand #3: Jonathan Wong moved all in for 1,870,000 from early position with {K-Clubs} {J-Clubs} and picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #4: Stephen Graner raised to 200,000 with {J-Spades} {10-Spades} and Simon Mattsson found {A-Spades} {J-Diamonds} in the big blind. The Swede moved all in and Graner folded quickly.

Hand #5: Bjorn Wiesler made it 200,000 to go with {8-Clubs} {7-Clubs} and Mattsson now picked up {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts} in the small blind. The Swede moved all in again and Jonathan Wong looked down at {10-Diamonds} {10-Spades} in the big blind. The Brit faced a difficult decision and kept starting at the board and back at the opponent. Wong mucked and Wiesler asked for a count to work on his table image but also folded.

Seat 3: Jonathan Wong, 30, London, U.K. - 1,900,000

Jonathan Wong
Jonathan Wong

Wong is a 30-year-old cash came pro from London who has been playing poker since 2006. He took a break from the game in 2010, EPT Prague makes his return to big live tournaments and what a return it’s been.

He’s guaranteed his biggest ever lifetime tournament cash wherever he should finish, having eclipsed his biggest lifetime cash of €70,000 which came when he finished fourth in the Irish Open in 2006. But the money jumps will not faze him as he’s played as high as $200/$400 cash games online. Sadly Jonathan’s father passed away in November and he plans to donate a portion of his winnings from this tournament to charity in his memory.

Seat 4: Stephen Graner, 26, Las Vegas, United States - 12,405,000

Stephen Graner
Stephen Graner

Stephen Graner is a 26-year-old professional poker player, originally from Kailua, Hawaii, but who now lives in Las Vegas. After finishing sixth in the inaugural Millionaire Maker tournament at the World Series this summer for $273,854, his biggest tournament score, Graner decided to explore a bit of Europe this autumn and included EPT Prague in his schedule. It was a wise choice: he has secured his first in-the-money finish outside of the United States and heads to the final table with a dominant chip lead.

Should Graner place in the top two in this event, he will more than double his lifetime earnings from live tournaments, a total that currently stands at $676,642.
