Anthony Blaineau has had the upper hand in the early stages over Tomasz Kolewczynski, winning more of the pots and moving into a 4-1 chip lead. Kolewczynski has been patient and methodical though, and courtesy of winning a handy flip, where both players found a strong hand (nines for Kolewczynski and AQhh for Blaineau) – he is close to parity. (The board coming 2h Js 2c 8s 9h.)
That match continues but William McMurray has booked his final table berth by eliminating Michal Jacczarski… We’ll see McMurray battle for the title at 16:00 but that’s the end for Jacczarski, who picks up €1,934 for his 4th place finish. Well played sir.
