Alex Foxen leads the final six players of Event #1 $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em with just north of two million in chips, but hot on Foxen’s tail are Sergi Reixach and Sean Perry. Rounding out the final six are David Coleman, Jordan Cristos, and Kristina Holst.
Foxen vaulted into the chip lead late in day 1 when he eliminated Steve Zolotow in eighth place holding pocket tens against Zolotow’s ace-queen for over a two million chip pot.
The inaugural event of the PokerGo Cup saw 66 entrants and created a prize pool of $660,000, with the winner taking home $178,200, while the remaining six players are all guaranteed at least $39,600.
Vanessa Kade just missed out on the final table stream as the Canadian finished in seventh place when she ran her ace-eight suited into the pocket sevens of Perry for her last 670,000.
Kade headed into the final table third in chips but lost nearly half her stack to Coleman after making a 250,000 bet river bet into a pot of 300,000 and the board reading only to see Coleman shove for close to a million in chips. Kade folded and was eliminated a few hands later.
Rounding out the players the finished in the money were Sam Soverel in ninth, and 2021 U.S. Poker Open Champion David Peters in tenth.
Daniel Negreanu found himself on the Event #1 money bubble after moving all-in for his last 150,000 and seeing his ace-queen cracked by the ace-jack of Kade when she spiked a jack on the river. Negreanu had been left short only a few hands prior when he ran his ace-king into the pocket aces of Kade for over a million chip pot. Other notables to finish just outside the money included Joey Weissman, Ali Imsirovic, and Frank Funaro.
