WPT Borgata: La dura legge di Lazaro Hernandez
am Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Sempre lui, ancora lui. Dopo aver dominato in lungo e in largo il day1A del WPT Borgata, Lazaro Hernandez si riconferma chip leader anche nel corso del day2. Un padronanza assoluta quella di Hernandez che impressiona non solo per lo stack accumulato, 753.000 chips quando l’average segna 194.000, ma anche per la facilità con cui è salito nonostante un field durissimo e ricco di grandissimi giocatori. E’ lui quindi il protagonista di questa prima tappa del 2014 targata World Poker Tour in corso al casinò Borgata di Atlantic City. Tutto questo quando rimangono in gioco 188 giocatori con 120 posizioni a premio. Lazaro Hernandez

Il day3 che scatterà fra un paio d’ore quindi vivrà il momento più atteso del torneo, ovvero lo scoppio della bolla. E se il primo giocatore ad entrare a premio si consolerà con un assegno da 6.739 dollari, per chi resterà in gara il sogno è quella di portare a casa il trofeo e soprattutto una prima moneta da 842.379 bigliettoni verdi. Ci attende comunque un day3 lunghissimo, visto che da 190 giocatori bisognerà scendere a 27 players, con gli ultimi 3 tavoli in gioco.

Tornando al day2, se Lazaro Hernandez è stato il protagonista assoluto della giornata, un discorso più o meno simile lo meritano, Matthew Haugen secondo in chips con 735.500 e Tyler Patterson terzo incomodo in questa corsa al podio virtuale, ma lontanissimo dagli altri due con 618.000 chips. Insomma sia Lazaro, che Tyler hanno fatto una corsa a parte, rispetto a tutti gli altri giocatori, con un distacco abissale dal gruppone. Una sorta di fuga ciclistica a due.

Ma scorrendo il chipcount ci si rende conto che la partita è ben lontana da essere chiusa. Infatti pullulano i big in questo WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open. Nella top ten troviamo uno scatenato Chad Brown (455.500), poi via via Faraz Jaka (340.000), Isaac Baron (266.000), Patrick Eskandar (247.500), Jared Jaffee (238.000), Matthew Affleck (213.000), Amnon Filippi (204.500), Noah Schwartz (153.000), Scott Baumstein (153.000), John Racener (87.000), Michael Linster (69.000) e Jake Schwartz (56.500).

Niente da fare invece per altri big e regular del circuito. Stiamo parlando di Matt Salsberg, Matt Waxman, Kevin Eyster, Tony Dunst, Steve Brecher, Tony Ruberto, Victor Ramdin, Ravi Raghavan, Anthony Zinno, Jordan Cristos, Erick Lindgren, Derrick Rosenbarger, Andy Hwang, Mike Sexton, James Woods, Irv Gotti, Ebony Kenney, Jeff Madsen, Darryll Fish, Ana Marquez, Anna Khait, Allen Kessler, e Kathy Liebert.

Si riparte dal livello 17 : 2.000-4.000 ante 500. Questo il chip count ufficiale dal day2
