Apologies for the lack of updates recently. This was due some connection problems, and yours truly playing his usual 45 minutes of a GSOP Live Side event. One of these days I will make it to the first break.
Anyways, back to the point:
Genchev, the Bulgarian chipleader was so active thru the final table that everyone else had to open up too.
First victim since our last update was Stylianos Pantalikis, who was knocked out at 6th position when Genchev hit a flush on the turn and Panteliakis called all-in on the river after a loooong tank.
Sergio Aguilar, who was playing some very solid poker the last two days, knocked out Greece´s George Tzimas out on 5th in classic no-escape-setup, jacks against nines.
Ally Squire, who destroyed Team RedKings Pro James Keys´s stack yesterday in that big AA versus TT pre-flop confrontation, was knocked out 4th by the “Bulgarian Bulldozer” Genchev. Ally showed a low flop with second pair, but “Stevie-G” made the call with top pair.
Third place finisher in GSOP Live Greece this year is De Lima Carvalho from Portugal. De Lima played super tight thru the day, but eventually found the call with QJ when Sergio Aguilera four-bet him all in preflop. Not so surprisingly, De Lima was not in very good shape. Aguilera held AK so it was still a coinflip, but neither player hit the board and we were heads-up.
The heads-ip was between Bulgary´s Stefan Genchev, by far the most aggressive and fearless player in the final table, and Spain´s Sergio Marti Aguilar who to us looked possibly most analytical player in the final table.
The heads-up lasted only few hands, Aguilera tricked genchev with a oversixed preflop 3-bet, and the Bulgarian shoved KQ into Aguilera´s AK and we had a winner!
