🇫🇷Slimane Mameche makes it big on Day1G!

Entries 113/ Left 19



Day1 G also ended, the first in the last series of flights that will lead the qualifiers to play Day 2 C scheduled for Sunday afternoon, right after the midday Turbo.


The entry counter stopped at 113, of which 65 were physical players and 48 re-entries, while 19 went through after the canonical 13 levels of play.


The best was Frenchman Slimane Mameche, who made a crazy hand that allowed him to fly to the top of the count. In summary, Slimane decided to play the hand in the dark and found a call from most of the table.



On the board A-K-8, everyone checks, and he, consistent with the line, bets 40% 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. There is a chance that one of them is holding J-T (closed straight), but the decision is now made call.


His opponent shows J-T, as in the worst-case scenario. Only this evening did Lady Fortune 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.


At the end of the evening, we couldn't help but ask the protagonist of this crazy hand his impressions at the end of the day and why he decided to play in the dark:


"It went pretty well," Slimane said, "Yes, I usually play all the EPTs, and I also go to Vegas for the WSOP, but I don't play buy-ins over 10,000. It's my first time here. I tried to make Day1 yesterday but got eliminated towards the end, so I tried again today...


Often, when I'm at the table, and there's a big pot in play on the following hand, I always open it in the dark because whoever wins the big hand is happy and will tend not to waste his chips. He'll take care of them like he adopted a child and only play the top of his range. How many times have I won a hand this way? Several!"

And having told you about this cinematic hit, let's review the top positions: second in chips today is Slovak Julius Legen with 707,500, followed by Franco Pugliese at 612,500 after leading the tournament for long stretches.
