With the top 32 poker players getting paid from this event, the final 40 players took a seat in Day 3 of the PokerStars European Poker Tour at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London. Must had visions of being this years champion, all wanted to avoid being the first eight eliminated.
Looking to continue their good tournaments this day would be the current chipleader Surinder Sunar and who is being chased by a lot of good poker players all looking to finish on top including WSOP champions Chris Moneymaker and Alan Smurfit.
In every major tournament there has to be one that Ã¢â‚¬Å“busts the bubbleÃ¢â‚¬Â which means finishing one place out side the money spots. This tournament the distinction went to Carlo Citrone. Carlos waited and got all his chips in the pot with a solid AQ of diamonds but was called by the AK off suit of Vijayan Nagarajan. Neither players hand improved and Citrone was left watching the rest of the action, out in 33rd.
After Carlo went out, a lot of relieved short stacks also made their moves and the eliminations started rolling with Fuat Can, Marc Goodwin and Stuart Nash leaving the tournament shortly after.
Katja Svendsen went all in with JJ and was called by Chris Moneymaker with QQ and Daniel Mangas with KJ. A king flopped sending Katja home, tripling up Mangas and Moneymaker made a little of the side pot. It did not help either though as Mangas went out a few hands later and Moneymaker also missed the final table.
Other notables out are Roland de Wolfe, Phidias Georgiou, Alan Smurfit and even though he started the day as chip leader Surinder Sunar, was eliminated before the final table also.
Congratulations to all that finished in the money and to the final eight still vying for the title at this PokerStars European Poker Tour stop in London.
