APL/888PL/Pub Poker – The Main Event II / Day 1 / Flight 2

Wilson tops day 1B, Lynton leads overall

The day may have started slowly, but day 1B in the MAIN EVENT finished with a flurry as the field of 301 players was whittled down to 183 after 11 levels of 30 minutes in the poker room at Crown Melbourne.

The excitement was palpable as qualifiers from APL and 888PL venues throughout New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia converged for their shot at MAIN EVENT glory.

The two players who finished 1-2 in the inaugural MAIN EVENT – Nathan Gauci and Marion Fisher – were among the notables in action. Gauci bowed out after a tough start to the day, but Fisher remains in the race for a slice of the $461,000 prizepool after the field was confirmed at 461 players.

There may have been twice as many chips in play today compared to day 1A, but the day 1B chip leader John Wilson (171,700, pictured above) lies only fifth overall heading into day two. Indeed, a staggering 273 players of the 461 starters will be back for the start of day two. Play kicks-off at 10.10am.

Wilson stays under the radar

Beware the wolf in sheep’s clothing – John Wilson has been sitting quietly on pocket 12 all day steadily amassing chips and, bar some bad luck, the West Australian is certain to finish the day among the chip leaders. He currently holds more than 180,000.

The steady stream of eliminations has increased to a torrent with the latest departures including Phillip Wilson, Jim Kekatos, Joanna Findlay, James Holmes, Christopher Azzopardi, Jackie Bailey and one of the top fancies according to bookmaker.com.au, WA’s Chris Chamoun.

We’re now into the final 20 minutes of play on day 1B and it looks as if the field of 301 will be whittled down to approximately 160 by the end of play.

Short stacks under attack

The chips are finally flying thick and fast as the clock has ticked into the penultimate level on day 1B of the MAIN EVENT. The field is down to just over 200 with recent eliminations including Trent Miller, Shane Voller, Pam Morris, Norah Greer, Josh Allan, Dave Curtis, Matt Kozole, Tom Rusnak, Tamer Salama, Josh Clinton, Ahmed Eid, Jordan Johnson, Amy Haddad and co-host of The Rail, Daryl Westley (his partner-in-crime Ben McDonald is still in the hunt for a day two berth).

Elise Brown’s hopes of back-to-back final table finishes have also ended. She elected to make a last stand with A-10 and found herself in a race with the pocket eights of Leno Icaca. The pocket pair improved to a straight, sending Brown on her way with less than an hour of play left.

Con, meet Connie

Blinds are at 500/1000 with an ante of 100 but the short stacks – and there are plenty of them – are hanging tough with numerous double-ups in the past few minutes. However, Ben Cain, Michael Shepparbottom, Jacob Smith, Joshua Howard and Jasmina Kasic have succumbed in the early stages of level nine.

Meanwhile on the feature table where Con Diakovasilis has been seated all day, he’s just been joined by wife Connie to his immediate right. “Oh no, she’s gonna put me on tilt – where are those free drink cards,” he joked with the assembled rail.

Yousif sends two packing

Players in the MAIN EVENT are taking their second and final break of the day. Yousif Yousif will have a good story to share with his mates after KOing two players on the same hand when his pocket queens picked off pocket sixes and pocket sevens after the board rolled out Ad-3d-Jc-10h-10s.

Heading into the final three levels and 90 minutes of play, Peter Kassiotes retains the chip lead on 150,000 ahead of Cody Edwards (110,000), Jason Wright (105,000), Matthew Muir (95,000) and Alex Falon (85,000). With less than 40 players eliminated so far today, the next hour-and-a-half should be lively, to say the least!

Casas claims two

Barely 30 players have been eliminated almost four hours into day 1B of the MAIN EVENT but Andrew MacFarlane and Cohen Adams have just joined that list. MacFarlane was all-in pre-flop, and the last of Adams’ money went in on a board that was dealt 7h-Kc-8c-6d.

He showed pocket queens but was in a world of hurt against the pocket kings of Alan Casas. The river 7 sent both players to the rail with less than 20 minutes to play before the second break of the day.

Browned off

Elise Brown finished sixth in the first MAIN EVENT back in February but is currently AWOL from the tournament area after some extraordinary drama at her table.

With a flop showing 5c-6c-8c, Brown bet 3300, George Venianakis called and a third player announced all-in for 11,000. Brown went into the tank before Venianakis called time. With the clock ticking down to the final seconds, Brown folded Jc-4c face-up.

Venianakis then snap shoved and flipped over pocket eights, much to Brown’s disgust. The all-in player held pocket sixes and headed for the exit when the board ran out 9h-Ad. The hand took almost 10 minutes to play out!

Market update, with thanks to bookmaker.com.au

Midway through the seventh level (300/600, ante 50) of day 1B in the MAIN EVENT, the latest odds on bookmaker.com.au for the winner are: Ben Lynton ($41), Keith Walker ($41), Paul Ayre ($41), Barbara Gibson ($51), Bruce Muggleton ($51), Daniel Kidd ($51), David O’Connell ($51), Debra Armstrong ($51), Matt Muir ($51) and Troy Valentini ($51).

Gauci is gone

The second running of the MAIN EVENT is assured a new champion after the departure of Nathan Gauci. Having nursed a short stack for the past couple of hours, Gauci called the all-in of Greg Stuart. It was a flush draw for the Ad-4d of Gauci while Stuart held a set of eights with the flop showing 8d-Qd-6s. The turn 5h and river 9c missed both players, as Gauci gathered his personal items and made the short trip to the rail.

Kassiotes gets straight to the point

After a slow and steady 45 minutes, the action is starting to come thick and fast. Peter Kassiotes is the new chip leader on 120,000 after taking down a big pot when he rivered a straight with A-J against the turned trip sixes of Fiona Coelho, who was left with just over 1000 in chips.

Close behind Kassiotes is John Mouawad after he flopped a seven-high straight with 6s-7s and a board of 3d-5c-4h against Tony Grosso’s set of fours. The turn Js and river 10h left Grosso down to 4500 and Mouawad up to just over 100,000.

Prizepool announced

With players carefully manoeuvring their way through level five without any further eliminations, we can take this opportunity to announce the prizepool for the MAIN EVENT, with the winner assured a package valued at $101,800.

1 $101,800 ($85,000 cash plus Bracelet, Aussie Millions Main Event and Feb/March Main Event Entry valued at  $16,800)
2 $61,800 ($50,000 cash plus Aussie Millions Main Event and Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $11,800)

4 $36,800 ($25,000 plus Aussie Millions Main Event and Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $11,800)
5 $31,800 ($20,000 plus Aussie Millions Main Event and Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $11,800)
6 $21,200 ($20,000 cash plus Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $1200)
7 $14,200 ($13,000 cash plus Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $1200)
8 $14,200 ($13,000 cash plus Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $1200)
9 $11,200 ($10,000 cash plus Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $1200)
10 $11,200 ($10,000 cash plus Feb/March Main Event entry valued at $1200)
11-12 $6000
13-16 $4500
17-20 $3500
21-30 $2500
31-40 $2200
41-50 $1900

Dong on song in opening session

Approximately a dozen players have been KOed so far on day 1B of the MAIN EVENT after the first four 30-minute levels. Some of the bigger stacks in the room belong to Phillip Dong (80,000), Mitchell Gallard (78,000), Jackie Bailey (70,000), Glenn Bennet (65,000), Rosalinda Etheridge (64,000), Mario Puglisi (62,000) and Shivan Abdine (62,000). When players return, the blinds will be up to 150/300 with an ante of 25.

Gauci on life support

The first break can’t come quick enough for the inaugural MAIN EVENT champion Nathan Gauci, who holds less than 4000 of his starting stack of 30,000. He lost most of his chips in surprisingly simple circumstances – A-K versus A-Q on a board that fell 4-A-9-5-A.

Speaking of winners, we also just caught up with Dean Yuen, who pocketed almost $130,000 last month after taking out the Sydney Poker Champs Main Event title. But he’s just another face in the crowd today as he grinds away on table he described as “pretty tight”.

Greetings to Marius from the US of A!

We’re just about to enter the fourth level of the day (100/200 with an ante of 25) with five players sidelined in the first 90 minutes of play to leave 296 still seated heading towards the first break of the day.

We’ve also just received a message from Elizabeth Knowles, who resides in North Carolina in the United States, wishing her brother Marius Wytenburg all the best for the MAIN EVENT. Marius won his seat via a Woodstock promotion in Ipswich.

Hunter is a gatherer

You’d rather be lucky than good any day of the week, as Hunter Clavan just discovered when he announced all-in with the board showing 9s-3s-2h-Ks-Qs. He received a call from WA’s Nick Gribble, who showed the As for a but flush. However, Clavan held Js-10s for a rivered straight flush! He’s up to 47,000 but Gribble lives to fight another day.

Khalil Shnoudi also rode his luck when he shoved his short stack pre-flop and after two other players stepped aside, found his bottom set of nines up against the middle set of queens held by Brad Livermore. Sure enough, the case 9 came sailing down the river to end Livermore’s MAIN EVENT in brutal circumstances.

Ron’s on the run

Ronald Andrade has just been confirmed as the first player to be eliminated on day 1B after flopping two-pairs, queens and 10s, only to find that NSW State Champs qualifier Michael Richardson had flopped a straight. That makes Richardson our chip leader on 55,000 while Andrade wins an X-Box 360 for less than an hour’s work!

The official numbers have just been confirmed for the MAIN EVENT with 301 players in action today, making a total of 461 and a prizepool of $461,000. We’ll have a breakdown of the payouts and prizes soon.

Nines for Nathan?

Defending champion Nathan Gauci has just displayed that he’s lost none of the wild aggression that characterised his game back in the first running of the MAIN EVENT in February. With the board showing 9-7-6-9-7, Gauci declared he was all-in despite barely 1000 in the pot. His opponent thought long and hard before folding a 7 face-up for a full house. Did Gauci have a 9 or pocket nines?

We’ve also just confirmed that an extra $2000 will be up for grabs for the overall day one chip leader. If the player who leads the field into day two has opened an account with bookmaker.com.au, and placed a bet on the MAIN EVENT, then they’ll leave the Crown Poker room tonight with $2k!

Findlay’s fighting spirit

Blinds have just ticked up to level two (75/150) with the entire field having successfully negotiated their way through the first 30 minutes of poker.

Among the players here today is Joanna Findlay, who was recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. The mother of three is one of only 1400 Australians suffering from this terrible degenerative disease. Upon hearing of her illness Joanna’s friends rallied around her, organising a poker tournament to raise money for Joanna.

When the team at APL Sydney found out about the fundraiser they rallied behind Joanna and her husband Ian, both long time APL players, to help organise the tournament and supply a MAIN EVENT ticket to the winner.

The tournament was dubbed “Joanna’s Bucket List” and the funds raised went towards sending Joanna on a holiday. A field of 137 people turned up at St John’s Park Bowling Club on Saturday, August 4 to support Joanna and her family (pictured below).

After $17,000 was raised Joanna’s daughter Menka expressed her family’s gratitude: “To say we are overwhelmed by the response would be an understatement, we have met so many wonderful and generous people who have not only opened their wallets but opened their hearts.

“On behalf of my sister Nellie, my brother Nick and stepfather Ian we would love to thank everyone who participated and made this night possible. Mum can now go on a holiday and forget about this disease for a little while,” Menka said.

Fittingly, Alex Parisi, a great friend of Joanna who had already scored entry into The MAIN EVENT, won on the day and promptly donated his MAIN EVENT ticket to Joanna.

The wonderful spirit shown by the poker community for this fundraiser is further evidence of the universal appeal of the game and everyone involved in The MAIN EVENT is thrilled to welcome Joanna to Melbourne. We wish her the best of luck for the tournament.

State pride on the line

Cards are in the air on day 1B of the MAIN EVENT after the field of 310-plus were officially welcomed by Full House Group duo Brayden Haynes and TD Garth Kay. Such is the size of the field today that the majority of the tables on the main floor of the Crown Poker room are occupied by players from 888PL and APL communities in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.

Everyone’s getting into the spirit of the interstate rivalry, including the boys from bookmaker.com.au. They’ve just posted a market for the state of origin of the winner. NSW is favourite at $2.20 followed by Victoria ($4.80), Tasmania ($6.50), Queensland ($7), South Australia ($7.50) and Western Australia ($9). As we say in the PMA offices, get on board here!

A festival atmosphere

Plenty of colour and excitement in the Crown Poker room this morning as we count down to the first hand on day 1B of the MAIN EVENT. The blackjack and roulette tables are doing a roaring trade, as is the Vegas Bar where more than a few punters are sinking an ale or two for luck.

State pride is also out in force, with the blue polo shirts of NSW, maroon and gold of Queensland along with the gold and black of Western Australia clearly evident. Next to our media desk are the East Sydney contingent, who won’t be hard to find today in their bright green shirts. Cards will be in the air at 12.10pm.

Countdown to October State Champs

Huge field sails into town for day 1B

Welcome to a wild and windy Melbourne for day 1B of the MAIN EVENT at Crown Casino. Yesterday, the poker room was packed with almost 160 qualifiers from Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.

Today, we’re expecting almost double that number as qualifiers from New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia take to the felt. The line-up will include the two players who filled the top placing in the first MAIN EVENT – Nathan Gauci (pictured below) and Marion Fisher – along with the man for who the big money flowed on bookmaker.com.au, Keith “The Dentist” Walker.

Others in action today include the hosts of Australia’s leading poker podcast The Rail – Daryl Westley and Ben McDonald – along with many of the nation’s most respected pub poker performers such as John Azzi and Shivan Abdine.

As was the case on day 1A, players will start with 30,000 in chips and will play 11 levels of 30 minutes, starting at 12.10pm:

Level 1: 50/100
Level 2: 75/150
Level 3: 100/200
Level 4: 100/200 (ante 25)


Level 5: 150/300 (ante 25)
Level 6: 200/400 (ante 50)
Level 7: 300/600 (ante 50)
Level 8: 400/800 (ante 75)


Level 9: 500/1000 (ante 100)
