Shtapler and the Ladies
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1c 22/49
Level 10: 400-800 / Ante 100
Otto Shtapler won’t get happy in this tournament anymore, at least when it comes to high pocket pairs. Once again he lost a middle-sized pot when paying off the bet of 6,900 by table big stack Arman Soltani on the river of a board reading Jh10h9hJs2c, and was shown AhJc by the Canadian.
Shtapler flashed QdQs and added “if it’s more, I don’t pay,” dropping to just 22,000 as a result. Soltani moved up to 100,000 while Eric Munoz busted right after. Stephane Genet doubled up his short stack to 12,000 and is still in contention, as are 22 hopefuls one hour away from the end of Day 1c.
