We have the first elimination in the EPT Season 10 Vienna Main Event. It is Rumen Nanev who leaves in 8th place, taking home €77,000. His showing came to an end after he got his chips in a classic coinflip situation against Khoroshenin.

There was no runner-runner miracle to save him and he is the first casulty of today's final table.

EPT10 Vienna: Naydenov's Bluff Fails

Simeon Naydenov went for a squeeze play from a big blind, but while he got rid of original raiser Khoroshenin, he picked up Anthony Ghamrawi along for the ride. Naydenov only had 54 and as the flop came down q66 it did not bring any help to his hand. However he continued his story firing out 270,000. Ghamrawi made the call holding only KJ. Both players checked the 6 on the turn, but as the river came 3, Naydenov came out barreling, with a 385,000 bet. Ghamrawi tanked for a bit but eventually made the king high call raking in a huge pot.

We Are Done for the Day - EPT Vienna Season 10 Main Event Final Table is Set

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

It did not take long before the final elimination here in Vienna. We now know the names of the eight final table players, as Gavin O'Rourke is the final table bubble boy. He came to the feature table with the shortest stack and was looking for a spot to double up.

Gavin committed his last 655,000 with QJ and found a willing taker in Frei Dilling with 1010. Board did not come very promising for O'Rourke, with 626. Turn was another six, a 6, which meant that the last six from the deck would bring a win to O'Rourke as well as a Jack or a Queen. But it wasn't meant to be, as the dealer dealt out 9.

Gavin O'Rourke is the official final table bubble boy of the EPT Vienna Main Event. He will take home €60,800 for his performance, together with the thoughts of what might have been. The remaining eight will come back tomorrow to play until we have a winner!

We'll be back shorty with the full recap of the day, so stay tuned.

It's All Over for Gus

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

Despite of doing quite well throughout the day, Gus Hansen has just been eliminated. Starting with about 450,000 in chips, Gus made the raise and got three-bet by Bussman but Hansen and Sperling made the calls. Hansen led out into the 236 flop for 60,000 and Bussman thought for a bit before moving all in. It took a while for Gus to make his decision, but eventually he called with 1010 and was up against Bussman's QQ.

Board failed to produce any tens or any hearts to save the Dane, and his great run here in Vienna has unfortunately come to an end. Bussman is now over 1,000,000.

Blom was in a bad shape as his Ace-Jack was no match for Ace-King of Haigh. Despite turning a gutshot, river bricked for Viktor and his performance here in Vienna thus comes to an end.

Mikhail Korotkikh Stays Alive

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

After losing that big pot to Kravchenko, Korotkikh was looking to get his chips in the middle. He picked the spot from the big blind, moving all in for 26,200 over Mads Hansen's raise of 2,500. Hansen quickly called with A Q, and was well ahead of 10 J of Korotkikh. Flop did not bring much help, but a Ten on the turn saved the day for Korotkikh as he managed not only to stay in but also to double up his stack after fading the river which came 5.

When the 8 completed the board on the river, Telker thought for a few moments before sliding in the rest of his stack, which was a bet of around 37,000.

Mayer didn't like it and folded his hand, which prompted the talkative Telker to show his hand — the aj.

Johnny Lodden opened for 2,000 from the hijack and was met by an all-in three-bet to about 18,000 from Niclas Adolfsson in the small blind. The big folded and Lodden wasted little time in making the call.

Adolfsson: kj 
Lodden: 99

It was a flip, but Adolfsson needed to improve to stay alive. The a74 flop didn't do it, and neither did the q turn. However, Adolfsson did pick up a gutshot Broadway draw.

The dealer burned one last time and put out the 4. Adolfsson missed and was eliminated here in Level 10 while Lodden chipped up to over 100k.

Van Til recorded his first live tournament cash at the 2008 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure followed by a big slate of final-two table finishes in big events like the WPT Championship, EPT Copenhagen, Bellagio Cup and EPT Tallinn. In total Van Til has cashed $289,219 in live tournaments, but across Full Tilt and PokerStars the man known as busto_soon has racked up just shy of $5.5 million in cashes. This makes Van Til the highest grossing Dutch online MTT player, but everyone's still waiting for him to take down an EPT, WPT or WSOP event.

Lights, Camera, Action.

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

With the cameras trained on Viktor Blom as he chatted to his friend Johnny Lodden, Jens Lakemeier was in a hand with him on a flop reading q66. Lakemeier (pictured) led out for 400 and Blom made the call. The turn card 2 saw a check from Lakemeier and when Blom threw out a bet of 650 Lakemeier folded.
Blom opened the next hand for 250 and when it folded to Lakemeier in the big blind he was undeterred and made the call. The two players saw a flop of 5q3. Checked to Blom who made a bet of 300 which Lakemeier called and they both checked the turn 6.
When the 7 fell on the river Lakemeier changed tack and led out for 600. Blom weighed up the situation and flicked out the chips for a call. Lakemeier's card headed straight for the muck however as he elected not to show and the pot headed Blom's way.
Ziga Jamnikar, sitting next to Lakemeier, said sympathetically, "He's too rich to bluff."

Kings And Queens in Vienna

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

Vienna is the Austrian capital and has one of the richest histories of any European city. Many kings and queens have lived in this majestic place, and it therefor it's fitting to pay extra attention to hands played here this week with that hand.

Dutch pro Jorn Walthaus (pictured), who currently resides in Hong Kong, just faced a raise from George Bogdan Ana who had made it 300 before the flop. Walthaus called the raise from the small blind and the flop brought out aqk.

Both players checked and on the turn the 8 hit. Walthaus lead into his opponent for 900 and Ana made the call. On the river the k hit and Walthaus bet another 1,600. Ana went into the tank for quite a bit before he raised it up to 4,200.

Walthaus, using his usual imposing stare-down posture, took about 15 seconds before putting in another raise. The Dutchman made it 11,600 and Ana went back into the tank before ultimately making the call.

Walthaus tabled kq for a full house, while Ana flashed his qq before throwing his cards into the muck.

What Does Lodden Think About That?

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

We happened upon the action with 1,400 or so in the pot and a board reading488k. Norway's Bernhard Svaeren was first to act in the big blind, and he opted to check. Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden took the opportunity to bet 650 from the hijack, and then Svaeren woke up with a check-raise to 1,650.

Lodden wasted little time in making the call and then watched Svaeren lead out for 2,300 on the ariver. Lodden responded with a raise to 8,600, and that sent Svaeren into the tank. After a minute or so he announced a call only to muck when Lodden rolled over the aa for a rivered full house.

Cooler Hand Sends Drinan Out the Door

It didn't take long for the first elimination of the day to occur. About 20 minutes into the level, Connor Drinan got his remaining stack all in on the river with a board reading3kq47. Drinan held the qq for a flopped set, but it was no good as Mikhail Petrov had flopped a bigger set with the kk. The cooler hand made it a short but not-so-sweet stay for Drinan in Vienna.

Meanwhile, both Eddy Maksoud and Christian Golob have been eliminated from the tournament here in the first level of the day.

As we have mentioned a table needs three players to start the action but in this case the button, Russian PokerStars player Tatiana Barausova, had chips in front of her seat but was temporarily away from the table. Full Tilt Poker Ambassador Dermot Blain was in the small blind and opened for 250. Kai Herold from Germany defended the big blind and they saw a flop.

q 4 10

Blain continued for 250 Herold made the call to see a turn card 8. Blain continued for 550 and again Herold made the call. The river was the j and when both players checked Balin turned over j 5 having hit his pair on the river. No good though as Herold turned over the q 5 for the flopped top pair.

Brummelhuis and Walthaus Share the Table

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

Once we arrived the turn was already out there in a hand between November Niner Michiel Brummelhuis and the player in the big blind. With the board reading a 6 9 q the big blind had 575 in front of him. Brummelhuis, seated in the under the gun/hijack position as the table was still five handed, raised it up to 2,200. The big blind called.

The river brought the 9 into play and the big blind quickly tapped the table. Brummelhuis carefully picked some chips and placed them in the middle; 6,525. The big blind quickly released his hand and the dealer got underway shuffling the cards for the next hand. Brummelhuis is up to a little over starting stack after that hand.

Brummelhuis is sharing the table with fellow countryman Jorn Walthaus. Walthaus and Brummelhuis both went deep in last years WSOP Main Event and even swapped a little piece in the process. Walthaus finished 26th for $285,408, while Brummelhuis ended up finishing seventh for $1,225,356.

"Are we going to play heads up?" asked Jamnikar? "Three minimum." confirmed the dealer. A few minutes later Alexander Ivanov joined the table and action began.

Jamnikar opened on the button for 250, Blom folded his small blind and Ivanov made the call. They saw a flop of k 9 4. Ivanov check called a bet of 250 from Jamnikar and they saw a turn card 5.

Check call again from Ivanov for a bet of 550. The river was the 2 and both players checked. Jamnikar turned over the k #td and won as Ivanov mucked.

Blom opened from the button on the next hand for 250, Ivanonv folded and big blind Jamnikar asked him "Have you looked?" Blom nodded and Jamnikar folded but they would tangle in the next hand.

Ivanov folded the button and Jamnikar opened from the small blind for 250 getting a call from Blom. They saw a flop of q 7 k which both players checked. The turn card was the 5.

7 months ago via Pokerstars Blog

 

Welcome to Day 1b of the European Poker Tour Vienna Main Event sponsored by PokerStars.net. This is the third time Vienna has hosted an EPT and it is back on the Season 10 EPT schedule following a three year hiatus. The venue is the truly stunning Hofburg Palace, the former imperial residence in the heart of the Austrian capital.
A total of 341 players started day 1a but we are expecting a huge field for the second flight with numbers predicted to break the 800 barrier and beyond. Registration is open until the start of play on day 2 for this €5,300 buy-in Main Event so final numbers won't be confirmed until Tuesday.

Rikards Day 1A update

7 months ago via PokerUpdate

 

I'm here in the Most beautiful venue ever as the EPT comes to Vienna once more.
Vienna plays host to the Pokerstars European Poker Tour for the third time in EPT's ten year history. In the very first season, Vienna was on the list of hosts attracting a field of 279 players. 3 and a halfyears ago 578 players took part in the second visit to the Austrian capital. This is the 6th stop on the EPT season 10 and this is by all means the most beautiful venue of all time. The Imperial Palace, located in central Vienna is Austria’s most popular tourist attraction, but this week poker players will take charge of the royal rooms of Hofburg, which is the name of the very impressive castle.
Plenty of well known names are among the starters on day 1A, but many more are expected to arrive for tomorrow’s day 1B. Here are some of the more famous names that can be found in the poker room on day 1A as 295 players are registered so far:
Steve Watts, David Vamplew, Max Silver, Steve O’Dwyer, reigning EPT Vienna champion from 2010 Michael Eiler, Marcel Luske, Dominik Nitsche, Barny Boatman, Marc-André Ladouceur, and Ruben Visser.
Alongside those who have already registered, two of the biggest names in the game have been spotted in the Imperial Palace in Viktor Blom and Gus Hansen, who will both surely spice things up in tomorrows day 1B.

After a long layoff, the European Poker Tour begins the busy season as the Monte Carlo Grand Final looms.

The European Poker Tour announced that the Berlin tour stop was being moved to Vienna in November, meaning the EPT would be making a return to the Austrian capital for the first time since the very first season.

Back in Season 7, Michael Eiler (GPI#3161) got the best of Martin Hruby (GPI#14124) of the Czech Republic heads-up to earn the first and only six-figure score of his poker career.

Daniel Negreanu, currently ranked #1 in the World on the Global Poker Index, would make his final table debut on the European Poker Tour that year, finishing fourth. Kid Poker would match his best ever EPT finish last year in Monte Carlo, earning a 4th place finish at the EPT Grand Final.

EPT Returns to Vienna

After being away for three years, the European Poker Tour finally returns in Vienna in 2014. Sixth event of the EPT Season 10 is scheduled to take place in spectacular Hofburg Palace from March 19-29 2014.

There is no doubt in anyone's mind that this return of poker to Vienna was long overdue, as the city offers not only great poker playing environment, but is full of cultural and architectural sights that ensure plenty things to do and places to visit during the „downtime“.

In cooperation with Concord Card Casino, one of the most respected casino brands in Europe, the Eureka Main Event with the buyin of €1000+100 will kick off on March 19, together with the a €100 rebuy and €200 turbo deepstack events. There is also a €2200 High Roller Event on the schedule and bunch of other tournaments as well. Rich tournament selection usually guarantees for some good side action for those more interested in all types of cash games.

Last time the EPT visited Vienna during season 7, the Main Event attracted a field of nearly 600 players, creating the first place of €700,000. Considering it’s been a while, we could see even greater number of players showing up for this year’s EPT in Vienna.

We will bring you day to day coverage of all important happenings during the EPT Vienna events right here at PokerUpdate, so stay tuned.
