Action of the day

The quick setup of this event with 20 minute levels ensured that the action was non-stop from start to finish. After about six hours of play, the field was reduced from 182 participants to 28 paid places, with well-known players like Barny Boatman, Julien Sitbon, Tobias Garp, Roland Israelashvili, Martin Kabrhel, Max Pescatori, Sonny Franco And Randy Lev Everything is not enough to make money.

Junhyoung Ki would end up being the bubble boy of the event, despite being among the chip leaders for most of the early and middle stages of the tournament. Ki’s downfall began after that Moritz Dietrich called a massive bluff from Ki near the bubble in what was by far the largest pot of the tournament up to that point. Shortly afterwards, Ki lost the rest of his chips to Gleissner and from that point on all remaining players were guaranteed at least a min-cash of €1,885.

Eliminations occurred at a rapid pace once the money was reached, and it took less than two hours for the field to be whittled down from 28 paid spots to the unofficial 10-seat final table. There were also German professionals among those who were eliminated at this point Rainer Kempe (18th – 2,065 €), who had a short stack and finally ran into a run Simone Piazzini‘s ace-king before his run came to an end.

Gleissner, who was down to a short stack when he reached the money, began to gain momentum at the final two tables, especially after winning a three-way all-in that was eliminated Bastien May and left Kalle Persson stacked short. Gleissner doubled shortly afterwards and reached the unofficial ten-handed final table as the third largest stack.

Play slowed considerably once the final table was reached, as many pots were cleared preflop and players generally acted conservatively as payout jumps became larger. Simon Wilson And Jan Bogas would be the first to fall to tenth and ninth place respectively.

James Chen was perhaps the most experienced player at the final table, but as the blinds continued to rise, he was forced to use his stack with ace-two, only to face Dietrich’s ace-king and be eliminated in eighth place. Angelo Michael, Veronica Tuscano And Alessandro Predaroli Next, Dietrich fell to seventh, sixth and fifth place, with Dietrich scoring two of the knockouts and emerging as a significant chip leader heading into the four-hander.

Gleissner would draw level with Dietrich after elimination Simone Piazzini In a dramatic runout, Gleisser hit a three-outer on the turn, sending Piazzini flying. The three remaining players were fairly close in chips, but a series of bad cards left Dietrich with a short stack. He would eventually move in with a straight draw against Gleissner, who had bottom pair and avoided a multitude of outs to eliminate the Upswing Pro in third place.

The heads-up game between Gleissner and Cappiello was a short affair, lasting about ten minutes, but the duel was action-packed and saw two chip lead changes. After winning a flip against Cappiello with pocket nines, Gleissner took the last chips from Cappiello in another preflop battle where Gleissner’s queen nine held against Cappiello’s queen three to win the final pot of the tournament.
