Event #9: €100,000 No-Limit Hold'em King's Super High Roller

Dia 2 Iniciado

Super High Roller Gets Underway at 1pm; Late Registration Open for Two More Hours

It's a case of one down, two to go as we enter Day 2 of Event #9: €100,000 Super High Roller with Timothy Adams in the chip lead.

It was touch and go last night whether Adams would be pipped by German Dominik Nitsche. Adams had held the chip lead throughout the day, but a flurry of activity for Nitsche in the last level actually put him in the chip lead.

However, in the very last hand of the day, Steve O'Dwyer doubled through Nitsche, and the chip-lead pendulum swung back in the Canadian's favour.

As well as Adams, Nitsche and O'Dwyer, several other players including Adrian Mateos, Tobias Ziegler and Stefan Schillhabel are well-placed. 2018 WSOPE bracelet winner Michael Addamo is also in the top 10 chip counts with 33 players remaining.

However, with late registration open for the first two levels of the day, we expect to see some frantic action early on as players race to avoid having to potentially fire another bullet in the second-biggest buy-in event ever held at a World Series of Poker Europe.

Play resumes at 1pm, with the schedule for the day to play down to a final table of eight. There will be 15-minute breaks after every two levels, and a 60-minute dinner break after level 16 (~19:30).

Three New Entries Before the Start of Day 2

Late registration remains open for the first two levels and the following break, and three players have joined before the cards went back in the air. Benjamin Pollak re-entered on Day 2 of the €25,500 Super High Roller and ended up in third place, hoping to repeat this or do even better.

Ilya Bulychev finished runner-up to Anson Tsang in Event #7: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed and joined, Alex Foxen also re-entered after having busted on Day 1.

Becker Takes on Khangah

Nível 11 : 40,000/80,000, 80,000 ante

Joining the action on the {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Clubs} turn, Johannes Becker led for 460,000 in the big blind and Ahadpur Khangah called on the button. Becker also bet the {K-Diamonds} on the river, making it 1,250,000 to go, and that forced a fold from Khangah.

"On the outer tables you do that?" table neighbor Martin Kabrhel asked.

Becker replied with a "Sometimes" only, to which Kabrhel added "Maximum bubble boy for you, that's not nice.

Mateos Starts Well

Nível 11 : 40,000/80,000, 80,000 ante
Adrian Mateos
Adrian Mateos

Adrian Mateos ended the day with a chip stack of double average and already added on to that after winning a small pot at the start of Day 2.

Mateos opened from the hijack with a raise to 175,000 and he was called by chip leader Timothy Adams from the button and Wai Leong Chan from the big blind.

The flop fell {3-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{10-Hearts} and all three players checked. They also checked on the {Q-Hearts} turn and the {K-Hearts} river landed on the board.

Chan and Mateos checked to Adams who put in a bet of 320,000. Chan folded but Mateos was quick with the call. Adams opened up {9-}{9-}, but that was no good against Mateos' {A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}.

The river was the {k-Spades} and Addamo moved all in. Leow had a long tank before folding.

Ziegler and Vieira Chip Up

Nível 11 : 40,000/80,000, 80,000 ante

Tobias Ziegler defended his big blind against a raise by Alex Foxen in late position and the flop came {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Ziegler checked and Foxen bet 200,000, which prompted a check-min-raise to 400,000 by Ziegler. Foxen gave it some thought and called. On the {2-Clubs} turn, Ziegler bet 2,000,000, which more than covered Foxen's remaining stack.

The American high roller regular riffled his chips for a good minute before sending the cards into the muck.

A few tables over, Joao Vieira raised it up to 200,000 in the hijack and James Chen called on the button. Steve O'Dwyer in the big blind three-bet to 725,000 and picked up calls from both Vieira and Chen. What followed was a staring contest between the trio, ending in checks all the way on the {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop and the {10-Clubs} turn. O'Dwyer also checked the {K-Hearts} river and Vieira tossed out a bet of 950,000. That ended up winning the hand without showdown, as two folds followed.

Schillhabel and Eibinger Chop It Up

Nível 11 : 40,000/80,000, 80,000 ante

Matthias Eibinger raised from the button to 160,000 and Stefan Schillhabel three-bet from his small blind to 615,000. Eibinger called and they saw the {8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop appear.

Schillhabel check-called a bet of 435,000 on that flop and the turn was the {10-Diamonds}. Schillhabel check-called another time as Eibinger fired 800,000.

The river was the {Q-Diamonds} and that's where all the money got in. Schillhabel checked, Eibinger moved all in for 1,490,000 and Schillhabel called.

Eibinger opened up {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and Schillhabel got away from losing a big pot on the river as he showed {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}.
