Mon 22nd, 14:30 - Seat redraw at 16 left!



After (almost) two levels of play, the field went down to 16 players. The 17th classified, after which the Tournament Director has stopped the action, is Bruno Stefanelli, who found himself with A-J on the BB with only 5 bigs left.


On an open raise from MP, Stefanelli moved all-in, and his opponent snap-called with A-Q. The board ran Q-10-10-8-3, and Stefanelli left the poker room with a bit of disappointment:


"I tried my best, but the stacks were too shallow to do anything other than push all-in or fold. Overall, it has been a great tournament. I wish I could have had a different stack situation to do my best."


Here's the list of all eliminations until now:


21st Ralf Imdahl

20th "Mark"

19th Robert Alois Reichen

18th "Givi"

17th Bruno Stefanelli


Mon 22nd, 13:00 - Wolf Millionaire Final Day kicks off!




The 21 survivors just took their seat for the final act of this marvellous event!


Mon 22nd, 02:00 - Zoran Zivanovic in the best on Day 3



Day 3 just ended with 21 qualifiers who will show up tomorrow for the final act of THe Wolf Millionaire Main Event! Our daily report will show all the details, which will be out soon at THIS LINK.


Mon 22nd, 00:30 - End of the 12th level



All survivors are now having a 10-minute break, probably the last of the day. We're now down to 23 players left, and the action is divided into three tables with blinds 100K/200K and ante 200K (they will be 120K/240K at the resume of the game).


We had a few more "loud" eliminations in the last few hours: Chang Chun (Day1 J chip leader) went out in 32nd place. The same was true for "SKAP" (27th) and Emilia (24th, pic above), who were constantly high in the count throughout the day.



We have seen. Instead, Bruno Stefanelli (pic above) pushed hard on his table in several spots, where he won without a showdown. On the one hand, he defended the BB after an open from MP and donk-shoved 1.7M on 4♥️ 6♠️ 8♥️ and his opponent (with 2.3M) decided to fold pocket Tens.


The second spot saw him limping from the SB on a blind war and flatting his opponent’s isolation raise for roughly 3x. On 10-9-3, Stefanelli decided to check shove BB’s 180K c-bet, putting all his 3.8M in the middle and finding a fold.


It was not the nicest run for Denis Zimmermann, who lost twice in a 70/30: first, K-K vs. A-7, and then J-J vs. A-6. Also Andreas Fröhli has something to complain as he managed to climb up to 6M and then clashed against Aces and lost half of his stack.


Here are the top stacks at the moment:


  1. Ospite 8.5M

  2. Zoran Zivanovic 7.7M

  3. Christian Hertel 7.4

  4. EasyCall91 6.6M

  5. Pitschsen 6M

  6. Ralf Imdahl 4.6M

Mon 22nd, 21:30 - 33 left at the end of the 9th level




It's time for the 33 players still in action at The Wolf Main Event Day 3 to take a small break. In the last hour, a few notable have been eliminated: Wuttipong Favre (Day2B chip leader) and Marine Rosalie Petit.


Wuttipong Favre was up to 4.5M, but he found the elimination in the space of a few hands. In the first one, he open-raised with pocket deuces, finding the call from the SB with K-Jo. On K-4-4, Wuttipong c-bets 350K (blinds were 50K/100K), and the opponent called. The turn was a 10, again check-bet-call, this time for 950K.


The river was Jack, and after SB checked, Wuttipong opted for a 1.1M third barrel, finding the snap call from his opponent. A few hands later, he flattened from the BTN Denis Zimmermann's open with K-K. The flop was 10-10-8, c-bet and call, in position, for Wuttipong, who decided to check-shove for 1.8M on Denis' 700K bet: snap-call, no trips on the river, and Wuttipong busted in 35th place. Zimmermann, instead, flew ahead of the count with over 8 million chips


There was also no glory for the French pro and poker coach Marine Rosalie Petit, who found herself 4-bet shoving with A-J (15BB effective stack) from HJ after BTN's 3-bet with 9-9. The board ran 9-2-3-4-Q, and Marine Rosalie Petit busted in 36th place, being the last woman standing:


"I really enjoyed my experience here at The Grand Casino. - Marine told us - I will definitely come back to play again at some events! I started playing poker eight years ago and met my companion (Dinesh Alt, 6th on the Swiss ATML) playing a final table in Marrakech, where I won my WSOP Ring. I have met many nice people over the years, including my friends Jessica Teusl and Maria Lampropoulos. I love the game and started coaching around four years ago. The next step? Vegas for the WSOP, we always spend a couple of months there for a few years!"



Mon 22nd, 19:00 - 55 left at dinner break!


Biagio De Frino

Things are getting spicy here at GCPoker Room, with 55 players still on the go out of the initial 177. Denis Zimmermann (Day1 A chip leader) jumped ahead of the count with a massive 6.3M stack after being moved out from the feature table.


Besnik Lalinovci kept the line and is still in the Top 5 with 3.8M, as well as Emilia, who has managed to preserve his stack throughout the last two levels of play. Among the notable who have been eliminated, we found Mameche Slimane (Day1 G chip leader, out in 84th place), Borat90 (75th), Dritan Kaleci (62nd), Thomas Hoffman (57th) and Nuri Karo (56th).


The action will resume with 30K/60K blinds, ante 60K and a 2M average stack. Here are the top stacks at the moment:


  1. Denis Zimmermann  6.3M

  2. SKAP 4.5M

  3. KJ 4.4M

  4. Thierry Sven Thomann 4.3M

  5. Besnik Lalinovci 3.8M

  6. Feryat Capar 3.7M

  7. Emilia 3.5M

  8. Jean Michel Kabbaj 3.3M

  9. Iroolf 3.2


Andreas Fröhli


Mon 22nd, 17:00 - 82 left at the break, Lalinovci ahead




After the first four levels of play, the field was down to 82 players, and all survivors are now playing at 20K/40K blinds, ante 40K, and an average stack of 1.3M.


Among the players who busted, we have Dorian Ushe (165th place), who decided to squeeze with a big size from the SB with A-J after an open and a call, having just half of his stack behind. On K-8-7, he opted for a shove, OR passed, and the flatter called with 4-4.


Out as well Claudio Piceci (142nd place), Rene Kistler (137th), "spaceG" (129th), EPT finalist Lorenzo Arduini (121st), "xflixx" (115th), "Shadow72" (97th) and Andrea Roner (87th).


Just before the break, a big hand involving "Nokia 3210" and Marine Rosalie Petit has brought the French player up to 2.6M, among the biggest stacks in play. Here's the action:


"Nokia3210" opens from the HJ, and Marine Petit defends from the BB. On 8-8-6 rainbow OR c-bets around 20% pot, Marine Rosalie Petit raises up to 110 K (around 3.5x), OR calls.


The turn is a 7. Marine Rosalie Petit leads out 300K on a 400K pot and "Nokia3210" calls. On a 3-river, Marine Rosalie Petit value-bets 350K and "Nokia3210" with around 500K left, tank-calls with 9-9.


Marine Rosalie Petit jumped to 2.6M straight before the break and is now at the feature table. Here are the top stacks at the resume of the game:


  1. Besnik Lalinovci  3.6

  2. Gregor 3.4

  3. Denis Zimmermann 3.2 (head photo)

  4. Ramon Gonzalez Cruz  2.7

  5. Emilia 2.7

  6. Marine Rosalie Petit 2.6

  7. Pavel Heger 2.3



Mon 22nd, 13:00 - Wolf Millionaire Day 3 begins!



It took eleven days of intense battle to reach this moment. 177 players will compete throughout the day to bring their stack to the final day. The action starts with 8K/16K blinds, ante 16K, and a 650K average stack.

After the break, the action will resume at 1.5K/3K blinds, ante 3K, and a 115K average stack.


Sat 20th, 22:30 - Last level on Day1 J, 121 at the break on Day1 K!

Stacks are still pretty shallow in this early stage of the tournament, so let's enjoy the first shot of the day in the meantime!



Sat 20th, 15:30 - 149 entries after the first break!



We believe this would have been a great Saturday for poker lovers, and there we go with 149 entries at the beginning of the 4th level with 129 players in action.

Fri 19th, 00:30 - Slimane Mameche is Day1 G chip leader with one of craziest hands ever reported!



What we saw during the last level of the day is probably the craziest hand you can imagine. In a nutshell, Slimane decides to play the hand in the dark, finding a call from most of the table.


On the board A-K-8, they all check, and he, consistent with the line, bets 40% of the pot without having seen the cards yet: two calls.


The turn is a Q, Slimane checks, the player to his left bets, and the other goes directly all-in for about 400,000 (we are at 5,000 blinds).


At this point, Slimane decides to look at his cards and, much to his surprise, discovers that they are two Aces. One of them may be holding J-T (straight), but the decision has been made. Call.


His opponent shows J-T, as in the worst-case scenario. Only this evening did Lady Luck decide to smile at him. The last Ace of the deck materialized on the river, giving him nice Quads and making him jump over 900,000 chips.


For more details and the chip leader's interview, check out our daily report, which will be available at THIS LINK.


Fri 19th, 00:30 - Day2 ended with Favre ahead, Day1 G on a break



Wuttipong Favre (pic above) ended ahead of the count after a big hand played a few eliminations before the bubble against Andreas Fröhli.


The hand in a nutshell: Fröhli decided to cold 4-bet 22BB (we're a T12K), Wuttipong Favre 5-bet jammed with A♦️ K♥️, and Fröhli, after a few considerations, decided to make the call for 67BB effective with A♥️ Q♥️.


The flop K♦️ 9♥️ J♥️ gives Fröhli plenty of outs, but he is unable to eliminate his opponent because of a K♠️ and a 6♠️ between Turn and River. Thanks to this showdown, Wuttipong Favre took the lead and remained there until the end of the Day.


The bubble man, Vasileios Kollias, tried to hold as much as he could and got eaten by blinds. He was then forced to go to a showdown with 8-2off suited. He will try again in the following days. For more details, check our daily report at THIS LINK.


In the meantime, Day1 G got into the 10th level of play with Francesco Pilato leading the pack.



Thu, 18th - 22:00 - Day2 goes on a break, 55 left
