Day 1 completed

Fierro on Fire: Nicolas Fierro Leads Day 1 of Event #6

Nicolas Fierro the chip leader
Nicolas Fierro the chip leader

339 players were reduced to 36 players in the blink of an eye - the beauty of six-handed PLO!

Jack Ellwood and Chad Brown were the early front runners, but then Roberto Romanello took over at the top and maintained the lead for most of the day. Then the man on fire, Nicolas Fierro, burned his way to the top and when he was moved to the Welshmans table he overtook him as the man to catch.

The end of eight levels approached at the same time as the money bubble and the unfortunate bubble boy was Sean LeFort. The action ceased immediately and everyone was sent home, guaranteed a min-cash, and told to return at 15.00 (CET) for Day Two.

Alexander Kostritsyn Avoids The Bubble

Alexander Kostritsyn raised to 1,800, Juha Vilkki bet pot, Kostritsyn moved all-in and Vilkki called all in the blink of an eye. We had a showdown, and not only was Kostritsyn at risk of elimination but Vilkki would be established as the Day One chip leader should he win the hand.

Showdown

Kostritsyn{A-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} {4-Clubs}
Vilkki{A-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}

Board: {J-Spades} {10-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} {A-Spades} {5-Hearts}

Kostritsyn doubles up.
