Aldemir is Active Early

will_shill • Nivo 25: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Koray Aldemir came into the day with the largest chip stack on the outer table and he's been putting it to work early. Aldemir opened to 130,000 in early position and was called by Stoyan Obreshkov in the cutoff and Ihor Yerofieiev in the big blind.

The flop came {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs} and the action checked to Aldemir who continued for 125,000. Obreshkov folded and Yerofieiev called to see the {8-Spades} on the turn. Both players checked and the {2-Clubs} completed the board. Yerofieiev checked again and Aldemir put together a bet of 560,000. Yerofieiev thought quickly but elected to fold.

Just a couple hands later, Aldemir raised to 180,000 in the big blind and Vladimir Troyanovskiy called from the big blind. The flop fell {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Aldemir led out for 110,000. Troyanovskiy called and the {9-Diamonds} landed on the turn. Both players checked and the {5-Diamonds} on the river put four diamonds on the board.

Two more checks and Aldemir turned over {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a pair of nines. Troyanovskiy sent his cards to the muck and Aldemir pulled in another pot.

With the penultimate day upon us at the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe, there are only 12 players left standing in Event #10: €10,350 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event. Those 12 players will soon be cut in half as only six players will move on to the final day tomorrow.

Among the two tables are many world-renown poker players who have had plenty of success, not only at the WSOP but also on the elusive high roller circuit. One name that will stand out to everyone is 2013 WSOP Main Event champion, Ryan Riess. The Michigan native who now resides in Las Vegas captured his lone gold bracelet and over $8.3 million to go with it. While the payout may not be as large here in Rozvadov, Riess would like to etch his name in history as only the second player ever to win the WSOP Main Event on both sides of the planet.

Along with Riess, there are a few more players remaining who have well over $1,000,000 in career earnings. Koray Aldemir is part of the German contingent that plays nearly every high roller event there is to play and has amassed nearly $10,000,000 in his short career. Jack Sinclair is coming off a WSOP Main Event final table in 2017 where he finished in eighth place for $1,200,000 and has continued to find success at the felt ever since. And there is Vladimir Troyanovksiy who has been around the longest of the big names left. Troyanovskiy has had a long and illustrious career racking up over $6.5 million in the process.

Life won't be easy for the big boys as they will have eight other players to keep their eye on including chipleader, Lazslo Bujtas. A late surge on Day 4 and the elimination of Andy Black in 13th place sent Bujtas to the lead as he looks to make his first significant score in the poker world. Milos Skrbic rounds out the top three stacks heading into the day and he has already shown in the first few days that he is not afraid to tangle with anyone.

The action is scheduled to get underway at 2:00 PM local time inside the King's Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. One table will be featured on the live stream while the other will just be a few meters away absorbing energy from the rowdy rail. When the field narrows to just nine players, they will all gather together for the unofficial final table. The action will come to an end when just six players are remaining.

The players will return to their seats today with around 45 minutes remaining in level 25 and the blinds at 30,000/60,000 and a 60,000 big blind ante. With the chip stacks being as deep as they are, nearly around 80 big blind average, there will be plenty of room for interesting hands to develop. The levels will continue to be 90-minutes in length with a 15-minute break after each level and a 60-minute dinner break after the fourth level of the day. Stay tuned to PokerNews as we bring you all of the live updates until a champion is crowned.
