Day 3 of the World Poker Tour Amsterdam Main Event saw 32 players return to action with only 28 making the money and six players slated for Day 4’s TV final table. The money bubble burst early in play and as the final table approached, play slowed down to a crawl. Leading the final table is Jan Jansma after bagging up 2.3 million.
It’s a case of the have’s vs the have nots at the final table. Jansma and Daniel Danivar (1.8 million) have over 60% of the chips in play, while Jorn Walthaus, Louis Salter, Jonathan Rozema and Shyngis Satubayev are all below the chip average. Walhataus has 28 big blinds and Satubayeve has 14 bigs to play.
Andreas Klatt bubbled the final table in 10th place and crushed the MonteDam Swing points race. He busted when shoved under the gun holding Qd Tc and Walthaus called with pocket jacks. The board all rags, Klatt didn’t connect and was eliminated.
WPT Anchor Lynn Gilmartin, Andreas Klatt and PokerStars Team Pro Chris Moneymaker.
Noah Boeken had run with a 12th place finish, husband and wife duo Fabrice Soulier and Claire Renaut finished in 17th and 13th place respectively. Boeken ran pocket tens in to ace king that connected, Reanut ran big slick in to pocket aces and Soulier had kicker problems when moved in with nine big blinds that cost him his tournament.
Omar Lakhdari busted in 26th place and locked up fifth place in the MonteDam Points Swing for a €1,500 WPTDeepStacks buy-in and earned an additional €1,000 for cashing.
Marcel Schouten busted on the money bubble holding ace jack and turned a pair of jacks. Shyngis Satubayev held deuce five and rivered a straight to eliminate Schouten.
Cards hit the air for the final table at 2 pm local time (six hours ahead of ET) with a cards-up live stream hosted by WPT anchor Lynn Gilmartin on a 30-minute delay.
