Been check-called another 150,000 on the turn before they both checked the on the river. Been showed and Lijo mucked.
Robert Heidorn and Fabrizio Gonzalez were seen sitting down for their second try of the day. Anthony Zinno is a force to be reckoned with as well, he’s on his first bullet.
We picked up the action on the turn as big blind Freek Scholten bet out 75,000 on . His opponent, partypoker sponsored player Renato Nomura, shoved for 229,000 from middle position. Scholten called.

Big Blind Ante
The field is up to 127 players right now, with two big names in poker just joining. WSOP and EPT champion Kevin MacPhee just sat down, with WPT winner Marvin Rettenmaier taking his seat one table over.
Two high rollers just clashed, and it was the younger one to bite the dust. We missed most of the action, but table mate Ryan Riess was kind enough to fill us in on some of the details.
Fabrizio Gonzalez opened from early position and the small blind called. Leo Fernandez squeezed from the big blind and Gonzalez called, the small blind folded.
Fernandez would bet all three streets on , (300,000), (450,000.)
Gonzalez called all the way -including all-in on the river- but mucked upon being shown by Fernandez.
Ludovic Geilich was seen sitting with a stack of just 37,000, a fraction of the 1,000,000 we had seen him with just before. Catching our glance, he explained what happened.
Farid Jattin, who had just sat down, opened the action with a raise to 19,000 from the cutoff. Geilich found in the small blind and three-bet to 80,000. The big blind got out of the way but Jattin four-bet to 245,000. Geilich shoved for 1,000,000 effectively and Jattin called with .
The flop was good for Geilich with , but the on the turn and on the river gave Jattin the straight.
Geilich had a few big blinds left after that hand but was seen exiting the tournament not much later.
Amongst them, partypoker sponsored player Ludovic Geilich.
When we arrived, the action was already on the turn but table mate Freek Scholten explained what had happened after the hand was over.
partypoker’s Renato Nomura opened the action to 16,000 from the hijack and small blind Jose Barbero three-bet to 51,000. The big blind folded, Nomuro called.
The flop came and Barbero bet 51,000. Nomura called.
Barbero bet another 225,000 on the turn and Nomura called once more.
The completed the board and Barbero shoved. Nomura folded rather quickly.
