Level 1: 100/100
The century mark of entries has already been achieved on Day 1b, making it likely it will surpass the 154 entries attracted during yesterday’s Day 1a.
Loris Fabbri was the first Day 1b player to hit the rail and re-entered. Bogdan-Adrian Codreanu put his stack at risk shortly after but his fortunes turned out to be better.
Killian Desnos opened the action with a raise to 500 from under the gun before Codreanu three-bet to 2,000 from the button. Mark Attard cold-called from the small blind before Desnos called to complete the action.
The action checked over to Codreanu who instantly jammed for 9,000 after the all-heart 8♥J♥A♥ flop. Attard quickly folded before Desnos went into the tank for a couple of minutes. He was chatting with Codreanu before he eventually opted to call.
Bogdan-Adrian Codreanu: A♠T♦
Killian Desnos: K♠8♠
Codreanu was ahead and had a small sweat despite Desnos holding no hearts for a flush draw. However, the A♣ paired the board on the turn and Desnos was drawing dead. The 4♦ river made things official and Codreanu was back in business instead of needing to re-enter for a chance of advancing to Day 2 and beyond.
Killian Desnos – 30,000
Bogdan-Adrian Codreanu – 25,000
