Vojtech Ruzicka Leads Final Four in partypoker LIVE MILLIONS High Roller
The first highlight of the 2017 partypoker MILLIONS Nottingham festival at the Dusk Till Dawn saw 56 players out of a 93-entry strong field return to the tables for Day 2 of the £10,300 High Roller.
Registration remained open for another two levels, and during that period, four new players entered the competition and an additional 13 re-entries boosted the total attendance to 110 entries total.
The prize pool of £1,067,000 was to be shared among the top 11 spots, and at 4:15 a.m. local time, the remaining four hopefuls called it quits to bag up for the night and add an extra day to the schedule in order to determine the champion.
2016 World Series of Poker Main Event November Niner will be the man to beat when play resumes, as the Czech claimed 4,198,000 in chips and the overnight lead.
Bartlomiej Machon follows in second place with 3,059,000 while Tom Hall (1,943,000) and Chris Backhouse (1,798,000) are the other two contenders after a marathon day of more than 15 hours.
Rainer Kempe bowed out before the dinner break and once all players had returned, seven further hopefuls were gone within just 20 minutes. Silver and Nitsche then got short and ran out of chips before the final two tables were set and Ben Heath followed suit while not even all players had taken their new seats yet.
Keith Johnson, start-of-the-day chip leader Niall Farrell and Paul Byrne also missed out on the money. Jan-Eric Schwippert ended up as the bubble boy.
Schwippert was one of three short stacks at the outer table and defended his big blind with king-deuce suited, then shoved a seven-high flop with his flush draw. Machon called with pocket sixes for an open-ended straight draw and the bubble burst after blanks on the turn and the river.
Jason Wheeler suggested to play the last 40 minutes of the new level and then finish for the night, and the American pro bowed out just a few minutes later. Wheeler shoved for 15 big blinds with jack-ten off suit and Machon called with ace-seven offsuit in the big blind, again a nine-high board changed nothing.
Partypoker pro Joao Simao became the last casualty of the night. R shoved from the small blind with ace-jack and the short-stacked Brazilian called with ace-deuce. A jack on the flop all but sealed it, and an ace on the turn left Simao drawing dead.
