Ils étaient 24 au départ du Jour 5 du Main Event PokerStars Championship Barcelona 2017. Ils ne sont plus que 6 après presque 9 heures de poker... le point avant la finale de dimanche !

Le Jour 5 a été marqué par la sortie de route du chipleader à l'issue du Jour 3, l'Australien Ben Richardson (23e pour 45 000€) ainsi que celle du patron à l'issue du Jour 2, Mauricio Salazar (14e pour 69 600€). Fin de partie aussi pour l'ancien n°1 du classement GPI, Nick Petrangelo. Avec sa 19e place sur un field de 1682 joueurs (pour un gain de 53 200€), l'Américain pourrait bien repasser en tête dès la semaine prochaine...

Joli parcours aussi pour le Canadien que l'on voit de plus en plus en France, Alex Difelice (10e pour 87 100€). Auteur d'une quinte flush royale en milieu de journée ce dernier profite probablement de l'installation de son frère à Toulouse... Dernier rescapés des 19 tricolores dans l'argent,[Removed:146] (à droite sur la Une) rate la finale de peu. Le Français est pourtant le premier joueur du tournoi à gagner une somme à 6 chiffres, il encaisse 104 000€ pour sa 9e place.

Guerfi privé de finale

Désormais plutôt discret en tournois, malgré une place payée sur le Main Event WSOP cet été, [Removed:146] empoche le deuxième plus gros gain de sa carrière. Finaliste, et 8e pour 140 000€, de l'EPT Grand Final en 2010, Mesbah se rapproche maintenant du million de dollars de gains en carrière...

Il s'incline sur la même main que le fantasque libanais, Albert Daher. Une main qui a relancé Raffaele Sorrentino vers les sommets et une bonne dynamique. L'Italien n'a pas ralenti ensuite et se présentera en tant que chipleader, dimanche pour la finale.

Vainqueur à Monte-Carlo pour un demi million, le Transalpin (à gauche sur la Une) pourrait réussir le doublé PokerStars Championship dès la première saison du nouveau Tour !

Sorrentino n'a pas encore gagné... il va falloir faire tomber André Akkari. Le Brésilien (au centre sur la Une) n'a pas perdu un tapis préflop lors d'un Jour 4 parfait, il a récidivé lors du Jour 5 après être tombé à 5 blindes. Le Team Pro PokerStars a éliminé Aeragan Arunan pour mettre fin à la journée et revenir avec 40 blindes au Jour 6 !

Les six finalistes sont assurés d'un gain de 252 000€ mais le Bulgare Lachezar Petkov, deuxième du général avec 50 blindes, a aussi de l'ambition. Le Grec Brian Kaufman Esposito (32bb), le Suédois Sebastian Sorensson (31bb) et le Britanique Usman Siddique (19 bb) peuvent aussi encore créer la surprise. Le Londonien sera redoutable s'il arrive à doubler, dimanche à partir de 13 heures pour une finale à suivre en streaming et en intégralité sur PokerNews.

From the hijack, Aeragan Arunan shoved for 3,600,000. Andre Akkari in the small blind requested a count from the dealer and reshoved for 4,180,000 upon learning it was 18 big blinds to him. The big blind folded right away.

Aeragan Arunan: {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}
Andre Akkari: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The flop came {5-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{J-Spades} which had the Brazilians in the crowd go crazy.

They started cheering even more when the {4-Spades} hit the turn.

The {J-Clubs} completed the board and that was it, Arunan eliminated in 7th place for €193,000.

Day 5 is officially over, the remaining 6 players are guaranteed €252,000 and come back here tomorrow to play down to a winner. An extensive recap of today's action is to follow.

Kaufman Takes on Sorrentino

zedmaster84 • Niveau 32: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Brian Kaufman Esposito limped in from the cutoff and Raffaele Sorrentino called in the small blind, Lachezar Plamenov Petkov checked in the big blind. The flop of {9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs} was checked through and Sorrentino bet the {J-Clubs} turn for 250,000. Petkov folded and Kaufman called.

After the {K-Diamonds} river, Sorrentino checked and Kaufman took his time before betting two million. "Why not shove all in?" the Italian asked. One minute later he smirked and said "hero fold" before sending his cards into the muck.
