16 Players Remain for the PLO with Chandler in the Lead
Several players of the Bounty Event #16 final table line up jumped right into the action of the $365 Pot-Limit Omaha Event #19 and the likes of Herve Bourgois, Walter Treccarichi, Mohammed Elmazouni and Arman Bosnakyan failed to bag up chips. Bourgois lost a massive pot to Martin Ryan in a three-way all in after having flopped the nut straight, only to see Ryan’s bottom set and flush draw improve to a full house. Bosnakyan had an even worse cooler with top set against the middle set of Adrian Chandler, who made a runner runner flush to double up a huge pot.
Ultimately it was Chandler who secured the top spot overnight with 214,000, less than two big blinds ahead of Ryan’s 209,500. Robbie Bakker, who finished fifth in the Bounty Event #16, bagged up the third biggest stack with 121,000. The Dutchman first doubled with the nut flush against top set and queen-high flush, then ran a big bluff against Christopher Staats to build his stack.
Thomas Kremser and Benjamin Perez were sent to the rail on the last three tables still and several players then survived all ins to bag up with 16 players on the last two tables. Only the top 9 spots will receive at least $870, whereas the winner will take home $8,730, and especially the start of Day 2 should provide plenty of action with several short stacks.
Other notables that made it through include Orlando Romero (73,000), William “Timmy” Hicks (50,500), Cedric Adam (47,000), the son of Bounty Event winner Jean-Luc Adam, aforementioned Staats (41,000), Augusto Cavazzini (34,000), Ben Beighle (25,000), and Dominick French (22,000).
The action will resume tomorrow at 3.30 p.m. local time with level 15 and blinds of 1,500-3,000 as well as the following seat assignments.
