Hallaert Eliminated on the Feature Table
Kenny Hallaert reached Day 5, 8, and 6 of the WSOP Main Event in the last three years, yet he was just spotted with PokerCentral's Remko Rinkema on the rail and the duo walked outside of the Amazon room to discuss Hallaert's unfortunate run in the 2018 Main Event, as the Belgian had been eliminated minutes prior.
Hallaert was moved to the main feature table with some 20,000 chips and made a small profit before he got involved in a three-way hand. According to the Belgian, Randy Pisane had raised and Hallaert called from the small blind with the . The big blind called also. Hallaert check-called a 1,200 bet by Pisane on the flop and bet the turn. Pisane raised to 11,500, and Hallaert, who had a total of 23,000 behind at that point, eventually moved all in with top two pair.
Pisane quickly called with a set of eights and that sent Hallaert to the rail in Level 3.
"I seriously considered folding it, don't think I can call there, fold is definitely an option. Out of the 25 flops I have seen today, I didn't hit any pair. I flopped trips once and had to fold on the river, the guy later told me he had the better trips so I was glad about the fold. Maybe it was the frustration on how the day went," Hallaert explained.
The Belgian becomes the second high-profile departure in Level 3 on the feature table after defending champion Scott Blumstein had been eliminated on yesterday's Day 1a.
|Randy Pisane||87,000||19,000 |
|Kenny Hallaert||0||-20,000 |

Seth Gives MacPhee Respect
The preflop action was already underway and there was a 2,800 bet in front of the cutoff and a call by Akash Seth on the button. Kevin MacPhee raised it up to 11,600. This got the cutoff out the way, and after some deliberation, Seth did the same, showing the table as he did so. MacPhee mucked, so it will never be known how strong he was.

Addamo Builds; Vornicu Not Yet
After finding resistance on two previous streets, Michael Addamo on the button bet 16,000 into a pot of as many chips with the river reading and his opponent in the small blind gave it some thought before releasing his cards.
Valentin Vornicu, who is well known to run up stacks rather quickly, however, experienced the quite opposite fate. After three limpers, Vornicu in the cutoff made it 1,700 to go with 11,000 behind and the big blind reraised to 5,300. That was enough to scare away everyone including the current record WSOP circuit ring winner.
