I was really tilted after a bad run at cash-game tables the night before, so I decided to get a good sleep and try my the tournament the morning, since late reg. was still. And it paid off well!"

Emil is mainly a cash game player, though he doesn't mind taking a shot at MTTs from time to time: "I play only live, except for some online sessions on Sundays. I'm very happy about this achievement, my wife doesn't know anything, it will be a nice surprise for her!"

The tournament

It was a contest that lasted throughout the weekend, involving 124 individual players, while the entry count reached 167 thanks to the 43 re-entries made over the 4 available Day 1s.

A great disappointment for the chip leader at the start of Day 2,🇹🇼 Thivakaran Sundaraling, who failed to reach the final stage of the tournament.

On the other hand, the Lithuanian 🇱🇹 Zygimantas Skvarcevskis, who came into Day 2 in the lead, succeeded in the opposite feat.

His final day was characterized by a frightening up and down, which first brought him down to 10 big blinds and then up into the lead after some crazy showdowns.🎢

Meanwhile, on the other table, the action stagnated as many short stacks were involved and it was "Nokia 3310" who took advantage of the situation, crossing the 2 million mark.📈

After the first break (today the levels lasted an hour) the show went on for 15 minutes until "Perry" decided to go all-in with his 6 big blinds from CO, receiving a call from chip leader "Nokia 3310" in BB position.

A-3o against Q-Jo, two Dame on the flop, and almost no hope for "Perry" who was already drawing dead on the turn. For all 9 survivors, minimum cash of 3,590 CHF.

Another check for "Kawasaki" who, on Arduini's 300K bet, raises to 650K. The Italian simply calls and the dealer turns over a J♣️ on the river.
