Full Day 1C chip counts.
Former EPT Snowfest champion fell right at the death. He was down to 33,500 when he open shoved from the button with A♣5♦. Bartosz Piesiwicz was in the small blind, called with 8♠8♦ and went on to make a flush on the Q♠A♠T♠9♥3♠ board. No luck this week for Danish pro's first venture into the live arena for many years. Don't worry for him though, he's still crushing online on PokerStars.
Jamila von Perger aslo failed to make it through the day after a cooler late on cost her dear. She was on 37,000 when she committed her stack on the turn of a [A][K][J] board with pocket deuces. The flop had been checked through and her sneaky opponent called the shove and opened [Q][T] for a flopped straight. The river failed to pair.
They lasted a lot longer than Eureka4 Vienna champion Zoltan Gal. Denys Drobyna and he battled in two big hands mid-way through the afternoon. First up, Gal managed to double up when his pocket jacks stayed ahead of Drobyna's A♥K♥. The latter didn't have to wait long before he came back for those chips though. The two players took a Q♣Q♦5♦ flop where some chips went in before the rest went in on the 4♥ turn. Gal opened K♣Q♥ but was crushed by his Ukranian opponent's A♣Q♠. Gal was left with 5,000 and busted soon after.
Those who joined them on the rail today included: Volker Karras, Sergej Barbarez, Stefan Kolosov, Abbas Saroughiye, Dimitrij Shteynfaer, Oliver Baude, Karsten Wolff, Krzysztof Kubejko, Wilhelm Klahn, Olga Yakovenko, Andre Siebert, Julian Märgner, Michael Ehrke, Pascal Scheipenpeter, Roman Glöck, Johann Roesnick, Benjamin Bauer, Antonio Karman and Ali Ayboz.
