Zerjav Keeps Firing

Nivel 15 : Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Blaz Zerjav raised to 12,000 from early position and found a call from Ignacio Moron in the big blind.

Moron checked the {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop and called when Zerjav continued for 13,000. Moron tapped the table again after the {6-Diamonds} turn, where Zerjav sized up to 32,000. Moron took some time before making the call to see the {6-Clubs} river.

Another check from Moron saw Zerjav move all-in for his remaining stack of 127,000 chips. Moron found the fold, as Zerjav continued his good start to the day.

Brutal Beat Busts Heath

Benjamin Heath

Rayan Chamas opened to 12,000 from under the gun and Ben Heath called on his immediate left. Action folded to Sean Winter, who was in the small blind. He three-bet to 54,000 and Chamas folded. Heath then jammed for 108,000 total and Winter called.

Ben Heath: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Sean Winter: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Heath was in great shape to get an early double up but the {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop put Winter in the lead with a set of queens.

The {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} runout filled Winter up and Heath was a notable early exit on Day 3.

Irimia checked the {j-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop and Wigg continued for 11,000, which was called to the {k-Clubs} turn. Both players checked through to the {6-Diamonds} river.

Irimia improved to a set of sixes and checked to Wigg, who quickly checked back. Irimia showed the winning hand and took down an early pot.

"Sometimes You Get Lucky"

Nivel 15 : Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Krasimir Yankov opened to 14,000 from early position and Weiran Pu three-bet jammed a stack of 70,000 from the cutoff. Istvan Fabian was down to a short stack and called for less from the big blind before Yankov folded.

Istvan Fabian: {5-Spades}{2-Hearts}
Weiran Pu: {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

Fabian's exit looked imminent as the board came down {k-Hearts}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{q-Spades}, but the {2-Spades} then landed on the river to pair his deuce and keep him in the tournament.

"He was waiting for that hand all tournament!" laughed Marcello Del Grosso.

"Sometimes you get lucky," commented Matthew Hunt.

Money Bubble Looms to Begin Day 3 of the PokerStars Players Championship

Krasimir Yankov
Krasimir Yankov

Excitement and nervous energy will fill the room at the beautiful Baha Mar Resort in The Bahamas for Day 3 of the 2023 PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold'em Championship.

Krasimir Yankov leads the way as the only seven-figure chip stack heading into the third day of action. The Bulgarian poker pro is followed followed closely by Philipe Pizzari at the top of the leaderboard, while Jeremy Ausmus, Dylan Destefano and Day 1 chip leader Chris Moorman round out the top five.

The returning field of 255 players have bagged a stack and remain in contention for glory, but one big hurdle is expected to come early in the day. The money bubble will see the top 175 earn at least $35,100, while the eventual top six places pay over $1,000,000 each. A grand total of $24,843,000 will be handed out over the next three days, with the champion earning $4,053,200 along with the coveted PSPC title.

Many eyes will also be on the remaining PokerStars Platinum Pass winners in the field looking to keep their runs going all the way to a massive payday, such as Ignacio Gonzalez and Renato Minicuci who sit in the top 10 on the leaderboard. Others include Amel Husnic, Victor Vargas, Bastian Hess and Glen Craigen.
