Trois Français ont franchi le Jour 1A du Main Event du premier PokerStars Championship de l'histoire. Gaëlle Baumann tient le haut de l'affiche mais c'est James Martyn qui a dominé la journée d'ouverture du PSCBahamas 2017 à 5300$ l'entrée.

La Française a très bien débuté en terminant avec 119 000 jetons... mais la Team Pro Winamax n'est même pas la première tricolore puisque Hugo Boucenna, qualifié online sur PokerStars, a emballé 121 600 jetons. Avec un peu plus de 17 000 jetons, Sylvain Loosli n'a pas connu une journée aussi gratifiante que ses deux compatriotes. Le finaliste du Main Event WSOP 2013 a tout de même passé les 8 niveaux de 75 minutes au programme et fait partie de la centaine de rescapés.

Ils étaient 210 en lice en 2016 sur le Jour 1A de l'ultime édition du PCA remportée par Mike Watson. Ils étaient 229 dans la nuit de dimanche à lundi. Si Martyn s'est bien lancé vers un deep-run, en sortant notamment Andrey Zaichenko, Watson ne fera pas le doublé. L'acteur humoriste Kevin Hart n'a pas non plus franchi l'obstacle.

Parmi les joueurs qui ont monté des jetons, on notera Brad Marsh (173,200), Andre Cooks (160,400), Mikko Turtiainen (155,100), Alan Schein (140,100), Daniel Colman (136,100) et Igor Kurganov (121,000). Nick Petrangelo (104,000), Jason Mercier (92,200) et Cliff Josephy (87,100) n'ont pas à se plaindre alors que Mike “Timex” McDonald (54,600) a obtenu la mention passable. Bertrand Grospellier a lui sauté avec {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts} contre {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} à tapis préflop !

[

Qualifié en remportant un tournoi de charité, Morris Dadoun, 84 ans, a lui aussi obtenu son ticket pour le Jour 2. Après avoir refusé de vendre son ticket, Dadoun a commencé idéalement en prenant des jetons David Peters. Il s'est ensuite offert quelques jolis coups contre Daniel Negreanu. Soutenu par sa femme dans le rail, Dadoun a terminé avec 112 800 jetons alors que Peters et Negreanu ont respectivement ensaché 29,300 et 58,200.

[

Le vainqueur du Main Event 2015 Joe McKeehen, le golfeur Sergio Garcia, ou encore Charlie Carrel,ont sauté. Si le runner-up du Super High Roller à 100 000$ a sauté,le vainqueur Jason Koon a emballé 22 900 jetons.

Si Kevin Hart a disparu, Aaron Paul sera présent sur le Jour 1B du Main Event. Chris Moneymaker, Ludovic Geilich, Jason Wheeler ou les membres de la Team Winamax seront en action eux ausi. Eliminés du Main Event, Dan Shak, Christoph Vogelsang, et Paul Newey se rabattront probablement sur le [BHigh Roller à 50000$.[/B]

Le Jour 1B du Main Event débute à 17 heures, heure française.

Cordoba Shows Big Bluff Versus Dimmig

mnuwwarah • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Big blind Rodrigo Cordoba bet about 3,000 on a {10-Spades}{5-Spades}{j-Hearts}{6-Spades} board, and Jonathan Dimmig raised to approximately 18,000 in the cutoff. Cordoba called, and the river was a {5-Diamonds}. Dimmig bet 22,000 when checked to, and Cordoba responded with an all-in shove. Dimmig folded after some thought, and Cordoba showed {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}.

Mercier and Mateos Win Pots but Marsh is Table Captain

With two of the final five hands to play, a table stacked with chips took its time to play down to the end in dramatic style.

The penultimate hand of Day 1a saw Jason Mercier (pictured) three-bet pre-flop and get one caller to a flop of {4-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. On that flop, the world-famous Floridian bet 5,700 and took the pot down. He took no part in the final hand, so stacked up a whopping 92,700 at the close of play.

In the final hand of the day, Adrian Mateos clashed with Aslan Tcechoev and the latter bet 2,000 preflop and got a call from Mateos and the big blind player. The flop of {6-Hearts}{J-Spades}{8-Clubs} saw all three players check, but Tcechoev bet 3,500 on the {3-Hearts} and only Mateos called. The river {J-Diamonds} saw Mateos checked to, and he bet 8,300. Tcechoev folded and Mateos bagged up an impressive stack of 120,900.

Both Mercier and Mateos did well in the final level of the day, but Brad Marsh from Canada sealed up 173,200 chips and that's one of the biggest stacks in the room on a day where 229 players pitched up to play the PokerStars Championship Main Event here in The Bahamas.

Baumann Outflops Serge

mnuwwarah • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Gaelle Baumann had a three-bet to 5,100 in front of her on the button, and Pouliot Serge in the big blind made it 15,300. Baumann called after the middle-position opener folded. The flop came {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and Serge checked. Baumann bet 10,000 and Serge called. On the {3-Hearts} turn, Serge checked again. Baumann moved all in, causing her opponent to sigh.

"I don't think I'm good," he said.

Nonetheless, he called for about 23,000.

Serge: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Baumann: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Serge's fears were warranted, and he needed an ace to chop or a heart to scoop on the river. The dealer brought forth the {3-Clubs} and Serge's tournament ended late on Day 1a.

Bukovec Dominates Clausell

MrPaulSeaton • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante

It was a complete and total domination for a late all-in and call with John Clausell all-in and at risk with {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} and up against Predrag Bukovec's {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} .

The flop brought a pair and Broadway draw for each man, as it came {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. The {A-Diamonds} turn gave both men two pair, but it was Clausell who needed the help which never came in on the {9-Clubs} river.

Choose Your Own Rail

MrPaulSeaton • Niveau 8: 400-800, 100 ante
Breakfast Q&A with Daniel Negreanu earlier on Day 1a.
Breakfast Q&A with Daniel Negreanu earlier on Day 1a.

Presuming that you haven't got family and friends in the rafters because it's Day 1a of a Main Event, who would you like to see pitch up and lend their moral support to you on the rail at a live poker tournament?

Top of many people's list might be the super-cool Aaron Paul. Legend of the screen as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad, he'll already be known to many of you as a poker player for L.A. Sunset, after winning his GPI game in 'The Cube' against Fabrice Soulier. Well, Aaron Paul is back to take part in tomorrow's Day 1b of the PokerStars Championships Bahamas Main Event and took the time to come and see how friend and PokerStars buddy Daniel Negreanu (pictured left) was getting on.

Negreanu was involved in a big hand, up against Bradley Snider on a board showing {2-Spades}{J-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and with 18,000 chips in the middle already, whoever won would be taking a great pot into the final stages.

All of a sudden, while Team PokerStars Pro Negreanu and Aaron Paul shot the breeze, Snider was all-in for around 80,000!

"Wow - OK, you can take it!" said Negreanu, folding quickly.

Negreanu has just 22,000 left, and while that's not a disaster, he's drifted from before well above starting stack earlier. By contrast, Snider is up to around 95,000 chips and that's sufficient for a top ten stack.
