Kenny Hallaert Building Toward Another Possible Final Table Run After Day 4

Kenny Hallaert

When Mark Newhouse made back-to-back World Series of Poker Main Event final tables in 2013 and 2014, it was lauded as one of the most improbable accomplishments in poker history. It was a first in the era of 6,000-plus player fields, and many figured it wouldn't happen again for years if it ever did.

However, Kenny Hallaert is threatening to pull the double just three years after Newhouse logged his last November Nine appearance. He finished Day 4 of the 2017 Main Event with 4,145,000, the third biggest stack left in the 297-player field.

The 35-year-old Belgian veteran grinder and part-time tournament director finished sixth last year for just under $1.5 million, and he called it "an indescribable feeling" to make that final table. There's still a long way to go, but with less than five percent of the field remaining, it's conceivable to start dreaming on a repeat.

Hallaert's pacing well ahead of this point last year, when he said he bagged 1.6 million. However, he knows better than perhaps anyone left how much of the grind still remains.

"I don't want to focus too much on going back to back final table," he said. "The way to the final table is still so long. We need to play three full days. I can just finish 250th tomorrow, it can happen. I don't have high hopes just yet."

Hallaert put together his crushing day despite being seated at one of the toughest tables in the tournament. Few would voluntarily choose to sit with the likes of Charlie Carrel and Max Silver, but Hallaert had to deal with the former for much of his Day 4 and the latter for the later stages of the night.

Carrel tried getting the better of Hallaert just before bagging time, but all he did was contribute to the Belgian's monstrous stack. Hallaert flopped top pair with queen-jack and bet the flop, only to have Carrel raise him in position. Hallaert called and then called a sizable turn bet, and Carrel gave up when an ace of hearts hit that completed a three-flush. The Brit lost almost 1 million to Hallaert by the time the hand finished.

Hallaert also dragged a major pot with a set of eights when he faded an opponent's ace-high flush draw.

"Luckily my hand held up, the story of my WSOP really," he said. "In all the big pots, my hand held up. An important part of being successful is your big hands holding up."

The only players finishing ahead of Hallaert were Damian Salas (4,678,000) and Sebastien Comel (4,198,000). JP Kelly (3,923,000), Richard Gryko (3,559,000), Jonas Mackoff (3,076,000) and Ben Lamb (2,746,000) also tote sizable stacks into Day 5.

Another player to bag chips was 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche. The three-time bracelet winner has 1,404,000. Not one of the biggest counts left by any means, but still plenty with the big blind sitting at 20,000.

"I'll take it!" he said. "It's OK. There were never any big pots, just lots of small ones."

Dominik Nitsche

Not only does Nitsche find himself still in contention for a top prize in excess of $8 million, along with over $35,000 locked up at the current payout level, he won a little prize from 888poker for being the last Ambassador standing. He outlasted fellow Ambassador Sofia Lovgren, who made a deep run but busted late in Day 4. Nitsche will receive a package to WSOP Europe in Rozvadov.

"So much fun," he said. "And even if I lost, even if somehow I lost, I could still just say that I've still won more bracelets. That's a joke by the way, make sure people know that it's a joke!"

Everyone who busted during Day 4 did so in the money, as the bubble burst to end Day 3. Former Main Event champs, Carlos Mortensen, Joe Cada and Scotty Nguyen were all among those falling during the course of play. The latter went out 549th when he jammed the last of his chips in with ace-seven and ran into ace-king, thus ensuring there will be a new winner crowned this year as he was the last former winner remaining.

The remaining players return Saturday at 11 a.m. for Day 5, where they will play up to six levels. Coverage can be found here on PokerNews, with delayed streaming on ESPN2 up until 1 p.m.

How Much Ya' Got? Mickey Craft Wants to Know

Mickey Craft had what you might call a roller coaster day, but never dipped below 2-million. He was very active all day and played three of the last five hands of the evening.

Craft raised to 65,000 preflop and called a 150,000 three-bet. The flop came with two spades,    .

Craft asked his opponent, "how much do you have?"

"Well you won't have it in a minute," he said and he went all in.

His opponent folded and Craft showed   .

Carrel Tries to Bluff Hallaert

Just before the announcement that five hands were to be played, Kenny Hallaert opened for 45,000 under the gun plus one. Max Silver called in middle position and so did his neighbor Charlie Carrel.

The flop came     and Hallaert bet 100,000. Silver folded and Carrel raised to 325,000. Hallaert called, and check-called another 475,000 on the   turn. The river   saw both players check.

"Flush?" Carrel asked, "Top set?"

Hallaert tabled    and Carrel mucked while letting out a big sigh and laugh.

Kelly Wins a Massive Pot to Close the Day

As the bagging and tagging began, JP Kelly was seen with a massive stack, a lot more than he had when we checked on him minutes before. Kelly told us the details of the hand that got him up to almost 4 million.

A player in late position opened for 45,000 and the cutoff called, and so did Kelly on the button, and the player in the big blind. Action checked to Kelly on     with two hearts. Kelly bet 160,000 and the big blind gave up. The initial raiser called, the cutoff folded.

The   hit the turn and the initial raiser checked. Kelly bet 275,000 and saw his opponent shove all in for about 1.5 million more. Holding    for the straight and flush, Kelly called. His opponent tabled   , leaving him no river in the deck that could save him.

Joseph Migliore Finds a Late Double

Antoine Saout raised to 50,000 from the cutoff and got a call from the player in the small blind. Joseph Migliore was in the big blind and three-bet to 185,000. Saout asked how much and weighed his options but opted to fold. The small blind looked at how much Saout had behind and eventually moved all in. Migliore threw his hands up in the air in disbelief, but still piled in his stack to call.

Migliore was at risk with   , well ahead of the small blind's   .

The board ran out       and Migliore doubled through in the last few hands of the night.

Ben Lamb Gets Paid

Ben Lamb

With a substantial pot of about 400,000 already brewing and the completed board reading      , Ben Lamb was on the button and heads-up against a player in early position. Lamb's opponent checked and Lamb took a few moments to think before betting 340,000. His opponent instantly announced a call and Lamb flipped over    for eights full of sevens. His opponent mucked and he took the pot.

Ivan Luca Doubles Up

The action was folded around to the cutoff who raised to 45,000. The small blind called and Ivan Luca re-raised to 195,000 from the big blind, leaving himself with only 50,000 behind. The player in the cutoff folded and the small blind went into the tank for a couple minutes. Eventually, he decided to move all-in, having Luca covered, and Luca called for the rest of his stack.

Luca tabled    and his opponent had   . The board ran out       and Luca's pair of fours held to give him a double up at the end of Day 4.

Miltiades Kyriakides was under the gun and checked with 600,000 in the pot and      on the felt. Sebastien Comel was on his left and put 260,000 in. Kyriakides thought about a minute and folded. Comel showed   . It sounded like Kyriakides said he folded two pair.

Ihar Soika Unlucky Not to Bust Two Players

Ihar Soika during his Monster Stack final table earlier this summer

Ihar Soika raised to 45,000 and Dilovan Hussein three-bet all in for 284,000. It folded to Jian Chen on the button who moved all in over the top for 553,000. Soika called putting two players at risk.


"Well that's not good," said Chen, seeing the Queen of Hussein. The flop came    . Chen let out a cheer when the   came on the turn, and Hussein yet out an even louder one and clapped his hands together when the   came on the river.

Hussein tripled up to just under 900,000, with Chen remaining about level. Soika took a rather hefty knock to his stack but still sits on around 1,000,000.
