Day 1 of Event #6: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha Ends Near the Money Bubble

Niveau 15 : 2,500/5,000, 0 ante
Liran Twito Leads 31 Players Into Day 2
Liran Twito Leads 31 Players Into Day 2

The second Omaha tournament of the 2017 World Series of Poker Europe at the King's Casino in Rozvadov attracted a field of 191 entries for Event #6 €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha to generate a prize pool of €366,529. After 15 levels of 40 minutes each, the money spots were narrowly missed as 31 hopefuls bagged up for the night.

Day 2 will recommence at 1 p.m. local time right on the money bubble with blinds of 3,000/6,000, and two further players will be sent home empty-handed before locking up a min cash of €3,215, while the winner can look forward to a payday of €93,677 and the elusive golden bracelet. Leading the field of survivors after Day 1 is Event #3 €1,100 Turbo Bounty Hunter 4th place finisher Liran Twito with 802,000 followed by Vahid Amirzahiri (685,000) and Pim van Holsteyn (627,000). The top three of the overnight counts all earned their stacks after winning massive pots in the last level of the night.

Other big stacks and notables still in contention include Dario Alioto (369,000), former football striker Sergej Barbarez (340,000), Sumit Sapra (297,000), 2017 WSOP bracelet winner Sebastian Langrock (255,000), Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler (217,000), Erik Cajelais (185,000), Mike Leah (142,000), and the 2017 WSOP Player of the Year contenders John Racener (130,000) and Chris Ferguson (98,000). Langrock was down to 800 chips at big blind 2,000 and made it through while Racener and Ferguson spent the last levels of the night next to each other (see below).

Chris Ferguson and John racener

Despite starting with more than 300 big blinds in the first level, there was one casualty in Bianca Jacobs after running with middle set into top set and Georgios Koliofotis turned quads when the remaining chips went in. Just before the first break, Koliofotis and John Racener played a pot worth five times the starting stack and the German with Greek roots flopped the nut flush to skyrocket into a commanding lead.

Until the start of level 10 when the registration closed after the dinner break, the entries and re-entries kept pouring in at an incredible speed and among those to come and go were such big names as Phil Hellmuth, Ismael Bojang, Ryan Hughes, Alex Foxen, Vivian Saliba, Eli Elezra, Fabrice Soulier, Marcel Luske and Kenny Hallaert. A four-way all in showdown was not uncommon and the field was whittled down quickly.

Towards the end of the night, Barny Boatman, Anthony Zinno and Felipe Ramos all ran out of chips before five big clashes headlined the last level of the night. Alexander Livingston's flopped straight draw got there against the top two pair of Vladimir Troyanovskiy and the top set of Jan-Peter Jachtmann before Pim van Holsteyn's flopped straight on the same table held up against the nut flush draw and inferior straight draw of Lukas Zaskodny. Ryan Riess turned the nut flush but Ivan Fedor rivered a full house to eliminate the 2013 WSOP Main Event champion before bagging and tagging.

Once the last hands of the night were announced, the money bubble was near but it wouldn't burst. Gerd Eichinger and Vahid Amirzahiri got into a raising war with drawing hands and Amirzahiri had also flopped a pair, the Brit would eventually win the second-biggest pot of the tournament so far with just a pair of sixes. In the penultimate hand of the night, Jonathan Abdellatif's overpair and nut flush draw failed to get there against the turned straight of Liran Twito and the Israeli skyrocketed into the lead.

The event is scheduled to play down to a final table on Day 2 and determine a champion on Monday October 30th 2017, and the PokerNews live reporting team will provide all the action from the floor.

Twito Wins Biggest Pot of the Tournament So Far

Niveau 15 : 2,500/5,000, 0 ante

The penultimate hand of the night provided fireworks between Jonathan Abdellatif and Liran Twito. Abdellatif's raise was three-bet to 40,000 by Twito and the Belgian called before check-calling a pot-sized bet on the {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop. After the {4-Hearts} turn, Abdellatif checked and Twito bet 125,000 before snap-calling the shove of the Belgian to create the biggest pot of the tournament so far.

Liran Twito: {6-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Jonathan Abdellatif: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

The {A-Diamonds} on the river was a blank and Twito doubled for 260,000, leaving Abdellatif short two spots off the money.

Joining the action on the {9-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop, Gerd Eichinger faced a bet of 40,000 by Vahid Amirzahiri in the small blind and raised the pot to 165,000, which Amirzahiri called. The {A-Hearts} appeared on the turn and Amirzahiri checked, then called the shove of Eichinger for 34,500.

"I have nothing," Amirzahiri said and Eichinger replied "me too."

Gerd Eichinger: {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Vahid Amirzahiri: {J-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}

Björn Muchow: {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Mustafa Jukovic: {K-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The cards oif Ryan Riess were already in the muck and his stack was shipped over to Ivan Fedor. According to other players at the table, Riess raised and called a three-bet by Fedor to see a flop of {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. The duo got their stacks in right there with Riess being the one at risk with the nut flush draw.

Five More Hands for the Night

Niveau 15 : 2,500/5,000, 0 ante

The clock has been stopped and five more hands will be played for tonight. There are as many players who will leave empty-handed in this event, as just the top 29 spots will receive a portion of the prize pool.

Brutal End for Sevo

Niveau 15 : 2,500/5,000, 0 ante

Vlado Sevo was all in and at risk with the {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades} on the flop of {Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} and Liran Twito snap-called. What followed were groans at the table, as Twito turned over {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{J-Spades}{3-Diamonds} for quads, and the {6-Hearts} turn and {2-Clubs} river were just a formality.

Short stack Mikko Hirvonen was eliminated as well and that reduced the field to the last 34 hopefuls.
