Day Recap

After a 25-minute delay, the Single-Day High Roller got underway and over the course of ten levels of late registration, several big names jumped in the field.

They included Luc Greenwood, Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Ole Schemion, Max Silver, Jean-Noel Thorel and PokerStars Team Pro Andre Akkari, along with French players Guillaume Diaz and Sylvain Loosli.

As play progressed, Ivan Leow built up a strong early chip stack, and held it for much of the tournament. Fellow Malaysian Wai Leong Chan also had a strong stack midway through the day.

There had been a steady stream of eliminations throughout the day, but these seemed to dry up as the bubble approached. Eventually, Olivier Rousse's kings were cracked by Anson Tsang and the remaining 11 players each locked up €10,310.

Paul Leckey and Konstantinos Bouloutsos were both eliminated, before the players combined around a single table.

By now, Chan was into the seven figures as the smaller stacks tried to ladder. Andreas Freund had his aces cracked by Leow, who joined his compatriot in over a million in chips, taking over the chip lead in the process.

It was back and forth between the pair, as Chan quickly regained the chip lead with the elimination of Basil Yaiche in eighth place, cracking Yaiche's aces.

It was a final table of doubles, with Leow doubling through Tsang before Helmut Schott got his chips in drawing dead against Krzysztof Magott.

Sergey Verkhoturov was next to go, with Tsang and Alexandre Amiel both doubling twice before Tsang was eliminated.

Four handed was a tight affair. Amiel doubled again, then Leow and Amiel both doubled through Chan in quick succession. Chan then doubled through Amiel, and Amiel then doubled through Magott. Are you keeping up?

A big Magott double finally saw Chan succumb in fourth place. He was soon followed out the door by Leow and the remaining two players couldn't fit a single hand in before they were caught by the gaming regulations, with no poker played past 6am local time.
