WPT LAPC: Al Commerce Casinò un oceano di big e un pezzo d’Italia con Giorgio Medici
am Sunday, March 2, 2014

Una previsione che più facile non si poteva. La tappa World Poker Tour di Los Angeles è una delle più importanti e affollate al mondo. Vuoi per il buyin da professionisti, vuoi per il fascino di questo appuntamento ormai immancabile, vuoi per la strttura assai tecnica e infine vuoi per i prize pool giganteschi che ogni anno gonfiano le tasche dei fortunati players. Insomma anche quest’anno il WPT Los Angeles Poker Classic non ha tradito le attese e 501 giocatori hanno assaltato il Commerce Casinò della città degli angeli. Un field impressionante e con tutto il gotha del poker mondiale. Alla fine dei primi sei livelli di gioco comanda le danze Scott Blackman a quota 190.300 gettoni, quando l’average segna 40.600. In mezzo ai 370 qualificati al day2 però spunta il nome dell’azzurro Giorgio Medici, provvisoriamente diciottesimo con 84.650 chips. Giorgio Medici

Davvero incredibile l’appeal di questo torneo, ormai immancabile nel calendario del World Poker Tour. E poco importa se i 501 ingressi al momento sono inferiori di sedici unità rispetto alla passata edizione. Le iscrizioni resteranno aperte fino allo shuffle up del day2 e quindi è ancora possibile superare quel dato.

Field pazzesco dicevamo. Basta buttare un occhio sia al count, sia alla già lista di giocatori eliminati. Il leader dovrà guardarsi le spalle da JC Tran (108.800), Ryan D’Angelo (106.000), Chris Moorman (90.225), Eugene Katchalov (84.825), il team pro Pokerstars Bertrand Grospellier (74.050), Jonathan Duhamel (70.725), Jennifer Tilly (68.925), Antonio Esfandiari (68.550), Matt Affleck (57.275), Greg Merson (51.600), Phil Galfond (49.825), Isaac Baron (48.925), Erik Seidel (48.725), Melanie Weisner (43.925), Will Failla (43.200), Yevgeniy Timoshenko (42.050), Jeff Madsen (39.000), Marvin Rettenmaier (38.475), Mike Matusow (38.075), Justin Bonomo (37.875), Phil Hellmuth (34.050), Phil Ivey (23.900), Shaun Deeb (23.500), Jordan Cristos (22.300), Vanessa Selbst (21.550), Amir Lehavot (21.525), Robert Mizrachi (20.150) e Joe Hachem (11.750).

Non ritroveremo invece Matt Salsberg, Matt Giannetti, John Racener, John Monnette, Joseph Cheong, Jonathan Aguiar, Michael Mizrachi, Todd Terry, Ted Forrest, Noah Schwartz, Soi Nguyen, Sean Jazayeri, Dan Shak, David Peters, Andrew Lichtenberger, Amit Makhija, David Sands, Chris DeMaci, David Tuthill e Faraz Jaka.

Alle 14.00 locali (le 23.00 in italia) spazio al day2 con la speranza che l’azzurro Giorgio Medici possa continuare a scalare il count.
