Second day of the Premier League Poker Main Event playoffs today at the M Resort in Las Vegas. TeamParty guys start the day off with the Heat 3 which will decide the chips for the final tournament tomorrow. Later today we have the deciding tournament for the PartyPoker qualifiers fighting for the Main Event seat.
Felipe Mojave Ramos is not only the chip leader at the TeamParty Premier League playoff tomorrow but he is working on new skills as well…
The final table chip counts:
Felipe Ramos: 400,000 chips
Remy Biechel: 330,000 chips
Bodo Sbrzesny: 320,000 chips
Ian Frazer: 300,000 chips
Mike Sexton: 250,000 chips
Dragan Galic: 200,000 chips
Bodo wins! On a 3A6 flop with a flush of hearts possibility, Felipe bets, Bodo raises, Felipe goes all-in and Bodo calls. Bodo had 4 6 while Felipe had 7 2 flush draw. No hearts on turn and river while Bodo picks the second pair on river to win. Bodo didn’t eat anything for almost 24 hours and is now looking to make the non-eating ritual part of his game preparation.
We are now heads-up. Ian Frazer went all-in with K10 but was called by Felipe with AK. No help on the board for Ian who leaves with 30 points and 300,000 chips at the final table.
Ian says: “I played good. I didn’t get much cards to be honest, but they´re so tight I just took advantage of it. When it mattered though, I got big hands that got beat.
I played a big pot where I had Ace Queen and I got it in against Ace Jack, and lost. If that had held I would have had all the chips.
It definitely affected my game playing with a sore head! I still need tablets now…”
Remy Biechel is the next one out with KJ versus pocket nines of Ian Frazer. No help on the board and Remy finishes with 33 points and 330,000 chips at the final table. Remy says:
“I played good. I lost one big pot to Felipe, it made a big difference because I could have had the chip lead and three handed I would have enjoyed the aggressive play. But never mind I am happy with my play.”
Some words from Remy Biechel: “Yesterday was not important, today is not important, tomorrow is important and the Premier League main event is the most important! I want to be the champion of the world!”
Mike Sexton is the next one out. Mike had AQ and flopped the top pair of queens but runner runner made it trip Jacks for Ian Frazer. Unlucky for Mike who finishes with 25 points which will bring him 250,000 chips to play with at the final table.
Dragan Galic is out. Dragan was short stacked and raised all in from the button with KQ but Felipe in the small blind had pocket aces. No help on the board for Dragan and he finishes with 20 points total for the final game tomorrow. “Bad! I can’t believe it!” was what Dragan had to say.
Ian Frazer is in and we can start… long night in a Vegas casino for Ian! Several TeamParty guys and PartyPoker employees went on a night out yesterday. The night started late at the Blush club in Wynn casino and for Ian it ended up at the roulette tables where he had a small roller coaster ride which ended up with no money left.
The points from the first two heats are as follows:
Felipe Ramos: 17 + 10 = 27
Remy Biechel: 8 + 17 = 25
Ian Frazer: 13 + 7 = 20
Mike Sexton: 5 + 13 = 18
Bodo Sbrzesny: 7 + 8 = 15
Dragan Galic: 10 + 5 = 15
Ian Frazer is late again! Heat 3 was supposed to start at 13.00. Mike Sexton remarks that Ian will get a better result being blinded off than playing… wonder what Ian will say to that…
