Amedi Leads Final Eight in Mixed No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha

Netanel Amedi

With Day 2 in the books, and after a marathon bubble, just eight players remain in Event #6: €1,650 No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha Mixed Event.

Leading the way is Netanel Amedi who sent Richard Toth to the rail as the last elimination of the day to confirm the final table ahead of Day 3. Not far behind him is Norbert Szecsi (1,792,000) and WSOP Player of the Year leader Shaun Deeb (1,247,000).

These three are the only players over seven figures, but the other four players in Vittorio Castro (697,000), Van Tiep Nguyen (546,000), Julien Sitbon (423,000), Samuel Albeck (379,000) and short stack Jaroslav Peter (271,000) will all be aiming to take home the €86,596 first prize and the WSOP gold bracelet when play resumes tomorrow at 3 pm.

Here's how the final table looks:

Day 2 Recap

After 14 levels on Day 1, a total of 42 players returned to action on Day 2 just five eliminations away from the money. Among that handful of eliminations was multiple bracelet-winner Jeff Lisandro. Once the bubble was reached with 38 players, it seemed only a matter of time before someone got their stack in either of the big bet games.

And that was the case in back to back hands for Wai Leong Chan who doubled through Shaun Deeb twice in two hands.

The bubble continued. Doubles for Stephan Klam, Anthony Zinno, Christopher Back and a triple for Romain Lewis followed as the stacks dwindled even more. Eventually, three players all sat with less than 2,000 with the blinds at 3,000/6,000.

Roman Cieslik
Roman Cieslik

Of the three, it was Roman Cieslik who the big blind came around to first. He was all-in blind and after Van Tiep Nguyen forced out Krasimir Yankov on the river, he showed ace-jack for top pair. Cieslik rubbed his cards for luck to try and sweat, but was drawing dead after turning over just one of his cards and was eliminated.

It was then that the floodgates opened and players poured to the exits, with Max Pescatori and Romain Lewis eliminated before the tournament reached three tables.

Start of day chip leader Laszlo Bujtas was closing in on one million at this point and the eliminations were so rapid the tournament was down to two tables in just half an hour following the eliminations of Chris Ferguson, Danny Tang, Majid Ejlal Noubarian, Roland Israelashvili and Anatolii Zyrin.

By this stage, Bujtas had dropped back, and charismatic Italian Vittorio Castro topped the counts, and there was still time for Andreas Walnum to be eliminated in 16th place after losing a classic race shortly before the dinner break.

When they returned, the average stack had risen significantly, but that didn't stop Julien Sitbon eliminating Joao Vieira and Anthony Zinno in a single hand, after the Frenchman's aces held.

Norbert Szecsi

Sitbon was also responsible for the elimination of Joni Jouhkimainen, just after start of day chip leader Bujtas was eliminated against Szecsi. Szecsi had flopped a set, while Bujtas held two pair and a straight draw, but the river bricked, cementing Szecsi at the top of the standings.

Jean-Noel Said and Yunsheng Sun were the last two eliminations before the players were seated around one table.

Szecsi still lead, with Amedi and Castro the only other two players over a million chips. The pace of play slowed, with Deeb clawing some chips back from Castro before the final elimination of Toth sealed the final eight players.

The final day's play will be live-streamed on Twitch and PokerNews will be covering the event until it reaches its conclusion tomorrow!

Amedi Makes Nguyen Fold

Netanel Amedi

Most of the hands played out at the unofficial final table have been raise and take it, but Netanel Amedi just took down a pot after wanting to raise, but he wasn't allowed to.

Amedi sat in the small blind when it folded to him and had a 1,000 chip and a 5,000 chip in front of him to make up the 6,000 small blind. He retracted his 1,000 chip and dropped a single 25,000 chip as he wanted to raise to 30,000. As he only dropped in a single chip it was ruled a call and big blind Van Tiep Nguyen opted to check.

The flop came down     and both players checked this time. The turn was the   and Amedi lead out with a bet of 13,000. Nguyen raised it up to 30,000, only to see Amedi three-bet to 80,000. Nguyen folded his hand and the pot went Amedi's way.
