Happy Birthday, Montesino!

C. P. is the chip leader at the Birthday Special

Yesterday, the Montesino celebrated its 11th birthday. The programme did not only include day 2 of the Birthday Special, but also the NLH Birthday Big Stack, numerous cash game promotions, a raffle and the traditional birthday cake. The Barpros created a great atmosphere with their unique show.

C. P. nabs the chip lead

133 players started in day 2 of the Birthday Special at 3 pm. It was not to be the day of the Big Stacks. 

Day 1 chip leader Hao Wu experienced a real roller coaster ride. After losing almost all chips initially, he was able to fight back and even lead the field again, before he fell behind and had to throw in the towel.

Not a lot worked out at the other day 1 Big Stacks either, nobody from the top 5 made it to the final.

After 12 played levels, only 16 players were still in the tournament. Most of the chips could be collected by C. P., in the end, he had 18,450,000 in front of him. Markus Loidl takes the second place of the counts with 16,250,000, ahead of Shubin Dmytro with 16,125,000 chips.

The final starts on Sunday at 2 pm. The blinds start with 150k/300k. All players are ensured € 910, the winner can look forward to € 20,250.

Adam Ondrik wins the NLH Birthday Big Stack

To mark the occasion, a further attractive tournament was on the programme yesterday. € 10,000 was guaranteed at the NLH Birthday Big Stack. 229 poker fans registered and bought 56 re-entries. Thereby, altogether € 13,395 ended up in the prize pool, which could be divided among the first 29 players. A prize money of € 2,900 awaited the winner.

The last six players in the tournament finally agreed on a deal according to chips. Adam Ondrik nabbed the victory and was pleased with € 1,900. Benjamin Menkinulow took place two for € 1,410, ahead of Martin Musil for € 1,335.
