EPT Barcelona: Day 3 - Dlopt OUT, Lahtinen OUT
Ivey dumps Dlopt
What is it with Phil Ivey and sixes?
Yesterday he hit quads and a set - and today he has just bagged trip sixes to eliminate our Frenchman Dlopt (David Layani) in a monster pot.
Dlopt, a PokerStars qualifier, had a fine showing throughout the tournament, but was sucked in by Ivey, who has now taken the chip lead and is looking menacing.
On a flop of J-6-6 Ivey bet out with 75,000. Dlopt raised another 100,000, only for Ivey to come back with yet another 100,000 raise. The betting momentum was too much, and Dlopt moved all-in for his remaining 370,000 or so, called by Ivey.
Dlopt showed A-Q, while Ivey had the six in the bag with his 6-7. The turn was 8, river 4, and Dlopt was heading back across the border to France.
Ivey sits at close to 1.3 million. Not a bad showing for his first EPT event.
Teemu Lahtinen from Finland has also departed in 10th place, bagging 25,400 euro. He was woefully short-stacked and pushed the 35,000 in the middle in the face of a 60,000 raise from Bjorn-Erik Glenne.
Teemu showed K-3, Glenne an A-10. The flop 6-6-8 helped only Glenne, and the turn of an A settled the matter.
We are now on the final table "bubble".
