Day 1c Top 10 Chip Counts
|3||Bljerim Imeri||North Macedonia||1,942,000|
Approaching the bubble, Farukh Tach opened to 240,000 in early position, leaving just 25,000 behind. Action folded to chip leader Amit Yacov. He raised to 500,000 on the button which folded out the blinds, one of which was Ori Elul.
Tach then went deep into the tank, waiting to see if the there were any more bust outs before committing his stack.
Dario Rodrigues was eliminated and Tach thought that was the bubble burst. He put in the rest of chips thinking he had secured a min-cash.
Yacov scooped the pot on the runout. It was then relayed to Tach that Rodrigues was the 104th bust out, much to his annoyance, and that he was the 103rd meaning he was the unfortunate bubble boy.
Zhao Feng opened under the gun for 40,000 and Roee Shalom three-bet him to 115,000. Nikolaos Lampropoulos announced all-in for 310,000 and Feng re-shoved himself making Shalom fold.
The board ran out and the pot ended up to Lampropoulos.
Antoine Vranken shoved for 200,000 from early position and action folded to the big blind, Stephan Klam.
He took some time but he made the call.
The board ran out and Vranken was out.
