[Removed:17] Leads Final 6 Players in PokerStars EPT Malta €25,750 High Roller

Webjoker • Nível 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

After two grueling days of play, the 65-player field of the PokerStars EPT Malta €25,750 High Roller has been cut down to six. All of them are guaranteed at least a payday of €98,740, but all eyes are on the massive first price of €465,800.

The chipleader is none other than [Removed:17], who finished second in the same event in EPT Barcelona last August, banking €704,755. Yan finished the day with 887,000 in chips, leading a stacked field. These six players will return tomorrow as follows:

6Ole SchemionGermany267,00027

The day started off with 27 survivors of Day 1, who were joined by five new entrants on Day 2. Paul Newey's reentry lasted just one hand, as he found himself on the wrong side of ace-king versus pocket queens. Vladimir Troyanovskiy was also among the early casualties. He found himself in good company, as Dan Shak, EPT 8 Prague champion Martin Finger, EPT 9 Grand Final winner Steve O'Dwyer and four-time EPT side event winner Charlie Carrel were all forced to the rail as well.

Scott Seiver was topping the leaderboard for most of the day, but suddenly found himself eliminated after a huge clash with Patrick Leonard. Seiver had flopped the nut flush draw against Leonard's set and the two of them had gotten it all in. Seiver completed his flush on the turn but, unfortunately for him, the board paired on the river, shipping the huge pot to his opponent.

With money awaiting for just nine players, the action slowed down with just two tables remaining. Andras Nemeth fell by shoving pocket deuces in Schemion's aces, Nick Petrangelo lost a coinflip versus Philipp Gruissem and Dario Sammartino ran into Adrian Mateos' top pair top kicker.

With 11 players left, it took a long while before the last two players made their exit empty-handed. It was German juggernaut Gruissem who eventually succumbed in 11th place. He got it in good with pocket jacks versus Allan Sannier's king-ten, but the latter spiked a king on the turn to send Gruissem packing.

After a bubble phase of over an hour, it was Sannier who was the last person to go home empty-handed. Sannier had flopped two pair, but was outflopped by Khoroshenin's bigger two pair. With Sannier's elimination, all players were guaranteed at least €46,180.

With the bubble burst, it didn't take long to reach the final six. Adrian Mateos shoved pocket tens into Ramin Hajiyev's pocket kings and finished 9th (€46,180). Patrick Leonard couldn't improve with ace-ten versus Oleksii Khoroshenin's ace-jack (8th - €60,500) and Davidi Kitai ran ace-queen into Yan's pocket aces to finish 7th (€78,050).

The EPT 13 Malta Super High Roller final table is set and will commence at 1pm local time in Casino Portomaso in Malta. The live stream will commence half an hour later with hole card information shown on screen. Follow all the action live on PokerNews.com as we play down to a winner who'll walk away with €465,800.

Davidi Kitai

Action folded around to [Removed:17] in the small blind, who limped in. Davidi Kitai shoved all in from the big blind and Yan snap-called.

[Removed:17]: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}
Davidi Kitai: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

It was an unavoidable setup for Kitai, and the {K-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades} board didn't provide the miracle escape. Kitai takes home €78,050 for his seventh place finish.

With Kitai's bustout, Day 2 draws to a close. Chip counts of the six remaining finalists are to follow.

Yan Wins a Big One

Webjoker • Nível 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

From the hijack, Mikita Badziakouski raised to 20,000. Big blind [Removed:17] called and check-called 18,000 on {10-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} as well. Yan check-called another 60,000 on the {7-Spades} turn and the {J-Spades} completed the board. Yan checked, and instantly called the 150,000 bet Badziakouski had so carefully cut out. Badziakouski showed {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}, Yan took it down with {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

Oleksii Khoroshenin opened with a raise to 23,000 from middle position. Ole Schemion called from the cutoff, which brought the action to Patrick Leonard on the button. The Brit tanked for two minutes, before committing his remaining stack of 89,000.

Khoroshenin wasted no time in putting in a call, which gave Schemion some pause. The German juggernaut seized up his Ukranian opponent, eventually settling on a call as well.

The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, with both active players checking it down.

Oleksii Khoroshenin: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Ole Schemion: {K-Spades}{J-Spades}
Patrick Leonard: {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Neither player had improved their holding, which gave Khoroshenin the winner with ace-jack high. Leonard received €60,500 for his eight place finish.

Ramin Hajiyev raised for the second hand in a row, this time making it 22,000 from first position. Action folded to Adrian Mateos in middle position and he moved in for 164,000. His neighbor Mikita Badziakouski asked for a count but folded. It folded back to Hajiyev and he instantly called.

Ramin Hajiyev: {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Adrian Mateos: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}

"I folded an ace" Badziakouski said.

"Some information is being shared here guys" Yan replied with a smile.

The board ran out {7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Mateos said his goodbyes, banking €46,180.

The tournament is down to 8 players now, all of them are guaranteed €60,500.

Allan Sannier Is The Bubble

Allan Sannier - Bubbles EPT 13 Malta €25,750 High Roller
Allan Sannier - Bubbles EPT 13 Malta €25,750 High Roller

Oleksii Khoroshenin limped in from the small blind. Allan Sannier raised to 19,000 in the big blind and Khoroshenin peeled a flop.

The flop was {Q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and Khoroshenin checked. Sannier bet 16,000, Khoroshenin put in a big check-raise to 57,000, Sannier shoved for 180,000 and Khoroshenin instantly called to put Sannier at risk.

Allan Sannier: {10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Oleksii Khoroshenin: {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

Sannier had flopped two pair, but found himself in dire straits as Khoroshenin had flopped a bigger two pair. Sannier needed an eight or running chop cards to survive. It wasn't meant to be for the qualifier, as the {4-Hearts} on the turn and {9-Spades} on the river sealed his fate.

Sannier got into the Super High Roller by finishing second in last night's satellite for this tournament. Although, not exactly, as the tournament only had one seat for the winner. Sannier got paid €22,750 in cash for finishing second, almost worth a seat, but still a cash prize. Instead of cashing out, Sannier elected to pony up the rest of the money and buy himself into the tournament. Unfortunately, his exciting run ended on the bubble, leaving him empty handed for the journey.

The nine remaining finalists are guaranteed at least €46,180 each.
