Istvan Toro started the day with over 400,000 in chips, but after losing the all-in earlier he was down to 148,000 in chips. When Dylan Linde raised from the cutoff, Toro decided to shove everything from the small blind, and Linde called.
Toro didn't improve enough on and saw a terrible day come to an end in 24th place.
Gereon Sowa shoved all in from mid-position in the first hand of the day. Ian Modder was next to act, and he also shoved all in. Then David Valcourt in the big blind did the same. Modder had both of the others covered, so Sowa and Valcourt were in danger of being eliminated.
The board ran out . Valcourt flopped his king to have two pair, kings and jacks with the ace-kicker. Sowa was eliminated and Modder was left with less than 300,000.
If the action yesterday was anything to go by, play today will be even faster and more furious as Event #65: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em (30-minute levels) reaches its conclusion.
Leading the way is Dylan Linde, the only player last night to bag up a stack in excess of 500,000. But the rapid structure has already shown how you can go from chip leader to out in a matter of hands.
Today’s blinds start at 6,000/12,000 with an ante of 2,000 and play gets underway at 12 p.m. local time. The average is just under 18 big blinds, so the speed of bustouts will be quick as we play down to a winner.
Other players still in contention include Swedish player Anton Bertilsson and Brazilian Joao Simao.
All players are guaranteed $6,725 for making the final three tables, but each of them will be looking up towards the $223,241 first prize and a gold WSOP bracelet for the winner. Stick close as we find out together who will win the next 2017 World Series of Poker bracelet.
