🇨🇭Emil Bise takes down ⚔️Warriors Main Event

Entries 643

Simply unstoppable. Emil Bise's rise to the Warriors' Main Event is like a hurricane: it comes out of the blue, sweeps everything away, and heads to other shores. Specifically to the Wynn in Las Vegas, as good Emil, after a deal at the 4 left stage, secured his ticket to the 10K WPT World Championship.

Arriving last morning to play the turbo flight, he immediately made his way to the top of the count throughout Day 2, finishing in 4th place with around 2.6 million chips. On the way from 16 left to the final table, he racked up another two million and was third in the count.

Bise eliminated the first four players at the final table, leaving Xhavit Berisha in charge of the fifth, and then closed a deal practically on an equal footing (in monetary terms) with the other three to secure the ticket in view of his clear chip advantage.

The final Day

It took less than three hours of play on this Final Day to go from 16 left to the final table of The Warriors Main Event, and here we are finally commenting on the most intriguing part of the tournament.

Day 2 chip leader Thomas Hofmann couldn't make it past eleventh place despite an impressive stack at the opening of the envelopes, while Emil Bise continued his unstoppable ascent from fourth place to reach the final table with his third stack.

Claudio P. leads the troop with almost 7 million in chips when the blinds will be 40K/80K when play resumes, ante 80K, which means playing with around 90 big blinds. Second position for Xhavit Berisha, already chip leader at Day1 of qualification and always in the upper parts of the count throughout the tournament.

Here is in order of the eliminated players, with their respective prize money, before the final table composition.
