Petar Kalev Leads 52 Surviving Players Into Day 4 of the PokerStars Players Championship

Level 22 : Blinds 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Day 3 of the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship has come to an end and Petar Kalev leads 52 players into Thursday’s Day 4. The surviving runners will return on Thursday at 12 p.m. local time for the penultimate day of this prestigious event.

The Bulgarian bagged the top stack of 3,360,000 and he is followed by Blake Bohn in second on the leaderboard with 2,800,000. Dylan Destefano ended the night in third with 2,665,000, while Platinum Pass winners Dominik Nitsche and Tom Parsons rounded out the top five with 2,360,000 and 2,265,000, respectfully.

Kalev has the chip lead after a late clash with a charging Fedor Holz, who looked as though he may emerge as the chip leader in the late levels. However, an ill-timed shove proved beneficial when Kalev made an unlikely flush to cut Holz’s stack in half. After a late charge to end the night, Kalev stood tall with the biggest bag.

Day 3 Action

The third of five days saw 255 players return for a shot at making it through a money bubble that paid the top 175 players a min-cash of $35,100. It took a little over three hours to reach the bubble, and then over two hours in hand-for-hand play, but it was Mauricio Ferreira Pais that busted out to earn the rest of the room their payday.

Among the big stories was Glen Craigen, a Canadian road construction worker that won his Platinum Pass in a freeroll. Craigen ran all the way to 111th to take home $46,500 and the story of a lifetime.

Another player on the ride of his life was Tom Parsons, who waited patiently for his opportunity after winning a Platinum Pass at Lex Live 2 in March of 2019. Parsons was down to his last few big blinds on the bubble, but he spun it up and and went on a late run to finish with 2,265,000. According to Hendon Mob, Parsons had just $1,406 in lifetime earnings before this event.

Parsons is joined by Jerome Moreau on a list of dreamers that earned their way to The Bahamas by securing a Platinum Pass. Moreau is a dealer on the European Poker Tour, and he’s put his opportunity to good use. His big moment of the day was when he correctly called a bluff from Nicolas Betbese to take a big pot with a pair of eights. He went on to add more chips at the end of the night with the elimination of Kenny Hallaert. Moreau will return with 1,205,000 and a chance to live his dream from a different seat at the table.

Included in the many Platinum Pass winners to hit the payout window on Day 3 were Soraya Estrada, Miguel Posadas, Dan Taieb, Mason Pye, Dinesh Alt, Bastian Hess, Porfirio Navarro, and Alejandro Lococo. Lococo ran to 89th for $53,400, and he was knocked out by Bohn’s Big Slick—a hand that put Bohn above 1.5 million chips on his way to a bag of 2,800,000.

Bohn, a Minnesota-native, is a regular at the WSOP and on mid-major tours throughout the United States. According to Hendon Mob, he has just over $3.5 million in lifetime earnings, including a recent win at Winter Poker Classic on the Mid-States Poker Tour. Bohn’s best live cash is just under $290,000, and he can beat that with an 11th place finish.

Blake Bohn

Sam Grafton also survived to see Day 4, thanks in part to a double knockout of Sammy Lafleur and Niklas Warlich. This is Grafton’s second cash of the series after a run to 52nd in the PCA Main Event, and the PokerStars Ambassador will return with 1,590,000 for the opportunity to add to his near $13 million in lifetime earnings. Grafton will be joined on Day 4 by other notable players Nadya Magnus, Chris Moorman, Fedor Holz, Sean Winter, Daniel Dvoress, and Chance Kornuth.

Players will return on Thursday in Level 23 with blinds at 20,000/40,000 with a 40,000 ante. Each of the 52 returning players is guaranteed at least $70,000, while the winner is slated to take home the top prize of $4,053,200.

Betbese Busts to Del Grosso

Level 22 : Blinds 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Marcello Del Grosso and Nicolas Betbese faced off in a battle of the blinds, with the board showing {k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}.

Del Grosso led out from the small blind for 205,000 and Betbese called to the {8-Diamonds} river. Del Grosso bet enough to put Betbese all-in and the call was eventually made.

Nicolas Betbese: {q-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Marcello Del Grosso: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}

Betbese called with his pair of queens before seeing the bad news, as Del Grosso had a pair of kings to secure the elimination.

Destefano Tops Nitsche in the Blinds

Level 22 : Blinds 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Dylan Destefano just limped in from the small blind and Dominik Nitsche raised to 120,000 from the big blind. Destefano called and the dealer fanned the flop of {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

Destefano checked to Nitsche who bet 90,000 and Destefano called. The turn brought the {4-Clubs} and both players checked to the {6-Diamonds} on the river. Destefano slid out a bet of 460,000 and Nitsche was forced to let his hand go.

Lakein Dried Up by Rodilla; Bohn Gets Four-Bet

Level 22 : Blinds 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Dovid Lakein was all in and at risk against Hugo Rodilla, who had him covered.

Dovid Lakein: {j-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Hugo Rodilla: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Lakein needed help and didn't get it as the board ran out {3-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts} to mark his elimination.

Across the room, Maxi Lehmanski opened from early position and Blake Bohn kept his aggression up by three-betting to 300,000 on the button. Lehmanski responded with a four-bet jam for 1,085,000 and Bohn stood from his seat and rubbed his head as he thought through a decision. He folded after about a minute.

Chamas Caught Misbehaving

Level 22 : Blinds 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Rayan Chamas opened to 60,000 from the button. Matthew Hunt and Renato Minicuci called from the blinds.

Hunt led out for 50,000 on the {9-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} flop and only Chamas called. The {4-Spades} turn then checked through to the {8-Spades} river. Hunt slid in 65,000 into the middle before Chamas raised to 270,000. Hunt quickly called.

Chamas tabled his {10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for a pair of eights but Hunt had flopped a set with his {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}, and he took in the pot.
