Niklas "Lena900" Astedt opened to 100,000 from the cutoff, Anatoly "NL_Profit" Filatov three-bet to 500,000, and action folded back to Astedt who put his entire stack of 3,353,744 chips into the middle. Filatov called and the hands were tabled.
Niklas "Lena900" Astedt:
Anatoly "NL_Profit" Filatov:
Astedt was in rough shape and the flop left him drawing slim. The turn had him drawing dead and the meaningless river came down to eliminate Astedt at the end of the day, and propel Filatov to a sizable chip lead heading into Day 2.
Chip counts of all remaining players and a recap of today’s action are to follow.
