Here we go again! Ready for the second report of the day WSOP 2023 in Las Vegas.
There really are some big names to mention today and some good traces of Italy too. Let’s start again with the 6-handed game that has now reached its final stages. And then we come to the great figures of Event 69. Just mention Riess, Negreanu, Elezra, Mercier, Monnette…
Then some very interesting events started, like the Colossus NL and the $50,000 PLO High Roller. In this latest tournament, Alex Foxen dominates the count after Day 1. Instead, the name of Italian Minasi has surfaced for the Colossus in second overall! With him also other blues. We leave you all the details available so far…
possibly 65: Six left in 6-handed NL
let’s keep going day 3 including $5,000 6-handed NL Hold’em. There were 48 players looking for a final table yesterday, led by a Brazilian couple. And with six left, both Dzivielevski and Garagnani are still in it, but now the situation has reversed: they’re the smallest in the count.
Hungarian Szecsi dominated with 18.6 million chips ahead of Angelina Rich and Weiran Pu. The day ended with Dzivielevski’s elimination of Ian Matakis in seventh place: pocket tens didn’t last against QJ suits on a 2-J-4-6-A board. The winnings are over $153,000 and the first coin is over $938,000. You are playing level 30 with 100/200,000 blinds.
