In one of the first hands of the day, start-of-day chip leader Antonio Buonanno lost a huge pot to Oliver Price. Buonanno won some back by eliminating the first player of the day, as he sent Dmitry Bayramov home with eights against king-jack. Sofia Lövgren fell a couple spots down. Dmitry Gromov eliminated the last female player of the tournament.
The bust outs followed each other up rather quickly, and before we knew it the tournament was down to its last two tables. With 10 players left, the tournament was down to one table. In the end, it was Christner who departed in 10th place, good for $22,500.
Buonanno, the European Poker Tour Grand Final winner, departed some time later. He had flopped quad aces to stay alive a little bit before, but couldn’t dodge a jacks-versus-kings hand. Ori Miller was the one setting a trap for the Italian, and Buonanno walked right in. His ninth-place finish netted him $30,000. Short stack Dimitrios Ballas departed in eighth ($40,500). Alexander Nudin was the last to bust. He got it in with aces against Alexander Lakhov
In August of last year, the WPT Merit Cyprus Classic attracted 262 players and featured a $1 million prize pool. Russian businessman Alexey Rybin emerged victorious in that tournament and took home a first-place prize of $258,000, which included a $25,000 seat into the WPT Championship. Others who cashed in last year’s event included Manig Loeser (23rd – $9,115), Erwann Pecheux (21st – $10,150), and Sergey Rybachenko (5th – $56,600), just to name a few.
The six finalists will return to the Merit Poker Room at 1 p.m. local time to play 36 more minutes in level 26 (20,000/40,000 with a 5,000 ante). The WPT will have 60-minute levels instead of 90 on the final day, and when play gets down to heads up, the levels will be sliced to 30-minutes long.
