Event #4: €3,250 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Stacked Field Advances To Day 2

[user68268] • Level 7: 400-800, 100 ante
Just 19 more players between Hellmuth and bracelet #13

Day 1 of Event #4: €3,250 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout has come to a close, and a long day it was. From the original starting field of 141 players, an extremely stacked field of 20 remain. Due to the shootout format of this event, all of the advancing players will take approximately the same amount of chips into Day 2. The one player that stands out, though, is Phil Hellmuth. The 12-time WSOP gold bracelet winner bagged up 71,775 due to his table having an extra player to start the day.

Numbers were down a lot for this event, but the WSOP staff was quick on its feet with making an alteration to the structure. Instead of a three-day event, this event will now end tomorrow on Day 2. The 20 players that have advanced will play a regular, multi-table tournament format down to a winner. As it stands right now, everyone left is in the money, earning at least €5,428.

Some of the names moving on to join Hellmuth are Matt Stout, Chance Kornuth, Dan O'Brien, Daniel Negreanu, John Monnette, Faraz Jaka, Mohsin Charania, Oleksii Kovalchuk and Dominik Nitsche. That's quite an amazing field that's left, which should set things up for one outstanding final table.

Play is scheduled to resume at 2:00 PM CET. You can find all the live updates right here on PokerNews, so please be sure to join us then.
