Tremzin Bags Day 2 Lead; Farrell & Chartier Bag Big While Footballer [Removed:30] Falls

Nível 14 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

The start of Day 2 at the European Poker Tour Season 12 Prague Main Event brought about the close of registration, and with nine players taking advantage of late registration, the total field was driven up to 1,044 players — down just a tad from last year's 1,107, but still the second-largest EPT Prague Main Event ever!

That created a prize pool of €5,063,400 that'll be distributed to the top 151 finishers with a min-cash being worth €8,910. Meanwhile, a hefty €921,540 is reserved for the winner. After six 75-minute levels of play on Day 2, the field was whittled down to 250 with Gleb Tremzin and his stack of 610,500 leading the way.

Others to bag big were EPT12 Malta champ Niall Farrell (547,000), Simon Persson (468,300), Colin Lovelock (458,200), and start-of-the-day chip leader Sam Chartier (444,000).

Of course not everyone was so fortunate. Among the hundreds to hit the rail on Day 2 were Faraz Jaka, Stephen Chidwick, Ivan Luca, Steve O'Dwyer, and Ole Schemion.

Likewise, Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Eugene Katchalov, Martin Hruby, Vanessa Selbst, Natalie Hof, Theo Jorgensen, George Danzer, Andre Akkari, and Jamie Staples all hit the rail, as did frequent PokerNews reporter Marc Convey.

Convey was taking a shot in his first-ever EPT Main Event, but unfortunately for the reigning European Poker Media Person of the Year, his time ran out in Level 10 (500/1,000/100) by Sebastian Pauli.

It happened when Convey, a former EPTLive commentator, opened for 2,200 from middle position and Pauli three-bet to 5,400 from the button. The blinds both folded, and Convey thought for a few moments before four-betting all in for what looked to be 21,000. Pauli snap-called and Convey seemed to know he was in trouble.

Convey: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Pauli: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

Indeed, Convey was dominated, and he began to get up put of his chair. The {6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop didn't do him any favors, and while the {5-Hearts} turn delivered him a flush draw, the {7-Clubs} river failed to complete it.

Another player to fall was [Removed:30], a French-born Malian footballer who is currently a free agent (he most recently spent time playing for Crystal Palace). On a {8-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop, Chartier bet and Kebe raised to 22,000. Chartier responded by moving all in. Kebe called off for what looked to be 60,000 and the cards were turned up.

Kebe: {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Chartier: {k-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Chartier held top pair, but Kebe was drawing to hearts. The {6-Spades} turn have Kebe an added gutshot, but the {6-Clubs} river proved useless. With that, the winger was sent to the rail while Chartier chipped up to just over 500K.

While hundreds fell, plenty of notables made it through to Day 3 including Sam Greenwood (365,500), Adrian Mateos (346,000), Juha Helppi (199,800), Kitty Kou (180,000), Day 1a chip leader Anton Astapau (147,700), Fabrice Soulier (57,600), and Mike "Timex" McDonald (37,400). They will be joined by several members of Team PokerStars including Matthias De Meulder (185,000), Ivan Demidov (151,800), Johnny Lodden (148,500), Chris Moneymaker (93,700), and Mickey Petersen (76,700).

Moneymaker was primed to finished the night as one of the big stacks, but two huge hands back-to-back saw him chopped down. You can read about those by clicking here.

Day 3 will kick off at Noon local time on Sunday with the plan of playing five levels, which will be upped from 75 minute to 90. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be there every step of the way. Until then, here's some info on the nationality breakdown of the Main Event…

Amongst the 1,044 participants in the EPT12 Prague Main Event, Germany had the strongest representation with 82 players, nearly eight percent of the field. France and the UK were tied in second, both having 75 players (7%) and Russia ranked fourth with 74. The EPT12 Main Event attracted players from 75 different countries.

Vamplew Scores a Timely Double

Nível 14 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

David Vamplew, a former European Poker Tour Main Event champion, has doubled to 71,000 late on Day 2 here in Prague.

Preben Stokkan raised to 5,000 in late position, was called by the button before Vamplew raised all-in for what turned out to be 32,500. Stokkan reshoved, the button folded and the hands of the all-in players revealed:

Vamplew: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Stokkan: {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}

Vamplew needed to avoid an ace or king to stay alive in the tournament. He did so on the {10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop, and the {3-Hearts} turn although the turn gave Stokkan more outs to a straight. The {7-Clubs} river wasn't one of them and Vamplew saw his stack size swell.

Klimciauskas Gets Value with Jacks

Nível 14 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante

Sam Chartier, seated under the gun, was just thinking about his move when the player in the cutoff threw in a raise to 6,000. Chartier, aware of the rules, pointed out that he could still call the big blind, which wouldn't change the action.

Fabrice Soulier, in the big blind, was the only player who did not agree with this, and a member of the floor staff was called over. The supervisor ruled that Chartier could indeed call the size of the big blind, and the player in the cutoff could only retract his raise if the action changed before it was his actual turn.

Soulier argued that it gave Chartier an unfair advantage, as the action would come back around to him, but his call stood. The other players in-between folded, and the player in the cutoff raised to 6,000.

Domantas Klimciauskas, in the small blind, called the raise and Soulier gave up from the big blind. Chartier gave it some thought before tossing in the call, and the flop brought out {4-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}.

All three players checked on the flop and the turn brought the {9-Hearts}, on which Klimciauskas bet 15,000. Chartier made the call, and the initial raiser folded, after which he received a warning from the supervisor about acting out of turn.

The river completed the board with the {7-Clubs} and Klimciauskas bet 37,000. Chartier tanked for a while before calling, and the Lithuanian player tabled {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}. The French-Canadian pro looked back down at his cards, and slowly threw his cards towards the muck.

Moneymaker Loses Two Huge Pots in a Row

Nível 14 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante
Chris Moneymaker
Chris Moneymaker

Action folded to Chris Moneymaker on the button and he opened for 5,000. Simon Persson in the small blind three bet to 13,000 and the big blind immediately folded. Moneymaker wasn't willing to do the same and four bet to 25,000. Persson five bet to 50,000 and Moneymaker called.

The flop came {J-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Persson bet 36,500. Moneymaker raised to 75,000 and Persson moved all in for 106,200 more.

"I got myself in a pickle here" Moneymaker exclaimed. "I was gonna go all in pre, now I maybe have to call"

Persson wasn't saying anything and just sat there silently. Moneymaker eventually called. "I have a five" Persson said with an almost embarrassed voice. It was good...

Chris Moneymaker: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Simon Persson: {A-Spades}{5-Spades}

The {A-Diamonds} on the turn paired both and Moneymaker gained some outs, but the {2-Diamonds} on the river wasn't one of them.

The next hand there was a raise from early position and a call from Nicolas Chouity. Moneymaker was right back at it and flatted in position. The flop came {Q-Hearts}{9-Spades}{Q-Spades} and the initial raiser checked. Chouity made a bet, Moneymaker called, the initial raiser shoved all in, Chouity called all in for 50,000, and Moneymaker called as well.

Initial raiser: {7-Spades}{8-Spades}
Chris Moneymaker: {K-Spades}{10-Spades}
Nicolas Chouity: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}

The {9-Clubs} on the turn and {Q-Clubs} on the river were both blanks and Chouity tripled while Moneymaker and the initial raiser chopped the small side pot.

"Nice table change" Moneymaker said with a sarcastic voice, "Nice two hands!" he followed up that statement.

Charlie Carrel Sent Home

Nível 14 : 1,200/2,400, 300 ante
Charlie Carrel
Charlie Carrel

Charlie Carrel opened the action with a raise and Mikolaj Zawadzki made the call from the button. Samuel Vousden came along from the big blind and the flop came {J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs}. The big blind checked and Carrel bet one-third of the pot. Both Zawadzki and Vousden called.

The {J-Spades} fell on the turn and now Vousden lead out for one-third of the pot. Carrel and Zawadzki called.

The river came the {3-Hearts} and Vousden bet 58,000, more than Carrel had. He tanked for quite some time, and at one point a player at the table asked if Zawadzi was thinking at the same time because he didn't want to do this waiting thing twice. Another player called the clock on Carrel and the Brit called with about 40 seconds left. Zawadzi instantly called as well.

Charlie Carrel: {J-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Mikolaj Zawadzki: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Samuel Vousden: {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

The trips of Carrel were beaten by the straight from Vousden and full house from Zawadzki.
