Final Chip Counts of Day 1c; Payouts and More
The third and final starting day of the 2017 TK Poker Tour Caribbean $250 Warm Up saw 55 unique players enter and another eight participants opted to fire an additional bullet to increase the field to 63 entries. This generated a total field of 134 entries for the tournament.
Just 22 players bagged up chips for the night after 12 levels of 25 minutes each with Jane Mignanelli in the lead with 72,100, followed by Allain Bellahsen (60,400) and Matteo Goacard (59,900). Pierre Goetz (58,600) and Ibrahim Binici (57,400) joined the big stacks late in the day. Binici first lost with Ad9d against the Ah2c of short stack Frederic Maniez (who bagged up a mere 8,000), only to knock out two opponents right after with KdKs versus AsQs and Ad2c. Binici casually made quads on a board of Kc4c4dKh7c.
Other notables to make it through via the last flight were Patrick Alain (51,700), Ramses Bislick (44,300), Stephen Saleh (43,300), Christophe Enrici (24,100) and Mario Eder (21,400).
