Action of the Day

The day started off quick with a lot of bust outs. A couple of the new entrants that decided to give it a go were busted before the second level of the day. Fedor Holz and James Obst both entered for a last shot at a $10,000 championship title and a bracelet, but both were unable to survive the first level.

Another of the late arrivals who fared much better was Martin Zamani, who ended up bagging the second biggest chip stack behind Volpe. Others that didn’t make it to the money include Daniel Negreanu, Liv Boeree, Ivan Luca, Erik Seidel, Stephen Chidwick and Sam Soverel.

Players that did end up making the money but didn’t make it through to Day 3 include Jeff Gross (50th - $14,916), Jason Koon (49th - $14,916), Ryan Riess (42nd - $16,911), Martin Jacobson (39th - $16,911), Michael Gathy (34th - $18,982) and Dominik Nitsche (20th - $26,424).

Dan Smith almost made it through to Day 3, but in the final hand of the day, he busted against Romain Lewis to finish in 19th place for $26,424. Jordan Cristos also busted in the final hand of the day against Deeb after losing everything but 2,000 to Sam Greenwood, with Cristos taking home $32,700 for 18th place.

Deeb is at this moment in second place in the WSOP Player of the Year race and made Day 3 with 1,610,000 chips after having a good ending to his day by winning a flip with sevens against ace-king. The US player already secured some points for the leaderboard but is also looking to add another WSOP bracelet to his collection after winning the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha earlier this summer.

Day 3 will start at 2pm with 17 players remaining and blinds/ante recommencing at 10,000/20,000 with the ante of 20,000. PokerNews will be there from the start until we crown another WSOP bracelet winner.

Aces Versus Kings Reversed for Aerts

Nível 20 : 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Not long ago Matthijs Aerts doubled up when his pocket aces held against pocket kings. Well, the same situation just occurred but this time it was Aerts who held the kings.

All the chips were in the middle with the completed board down. Aerts' kings were in front of him, and he had lost to the pocket aces of Martin Zamani. The pot was worth 1.9m and Zamani swept it in to take the overall chip lead.
