Chilipoker players all over the WSOP Main Event 1
We have sent a total of 6 players to Las Vegas this year, for the main event of the World Series Of Poker (WSOP).
We’ve been introducing them week after week, and we are now already through the day 1 (our players played Day 1D), and the day 2 (Day 2B for us).
Unfortunately, Liz Lieu, our sponsored player, didn’t make it to day two, following a very tough decision.
A terrible set up for Liz Lieu
On the button with KK, she decided to 3bet a passive player who open raided under the gun. This same player made it 4bet and she called. This was level 5, on the blinds 100-200. With 7,500 in the pot already, the player UTG made a Cbet for 6,125, and raised for over 18,000, with 26,000 behind. The opponent moved all in, and the poker diva made the call. Classic opposition between the American Airlines (AA), and the Cowboys…
On the other hand, it didn’t take long for us to realize that most of the players we had sent to Sin City where pretty solid players. Apart from Pawel, who was going to Las Vegas for one of his first live event, Patryk, Norson, Nelson and Marc are all professional players, and some of them where playing the main event for the 2nd or 3rd year in a row.
After losing Patryk Slusarek during Day 2, all our spicy eyes are now focused on Norson Saho, with a very nice stack a little under 250,000. Nelson Dantas, also made it to day 3, with 110,000 chips. They both from Brazil, and both above an average of 73,448 chips.
On the other hand, Pawel Zielony, and Marc Esteve, are a bit shorter. Marc is seating behind 58,500, a few chips away from the average. He will have to hold and play a solid game, but everything is possible for him. Pawel, with 57,400, is pretty much in the same situation.
