We can say mission accomplished. Marc Aubin was the first of two Quebecers to be eliminated. While he started his day at the 140th rank, he was able to improve his lot and finished ranked 77th, vinegrower and a bursary of $ 5261.

Shortly after, it was the turn of Jean Cloutier to pack their bags. Like Marc Aubin, Jean Cloutier has been able to improve its ranking of 119th place in 63rd place. It collects thus $7204 for his performance.

The day was concluded with only 15 survivors, including JP Kelly (4th row) and Vanessa Selbst (5th row). For the moment, the American Jacob Bazeley and Ryan Schmidt are the only to have reached the 1,000,000 chips bar.

The action will resume tomorrow where the 15 participants will vie for the first bracelet of the 2012 edition.

Event #3 - tournament HeadsUp NLHE/PLO $ 3000

Only Philippe Boucher was able to survive this first day of hostilities to ensure a pool of $ 3395.

This first day funny fact: Eugene Katchalov (Team PokerStars pro) was to KO his opponent (16,000 chips vs. 2000) when the Tournament Director approached to tell them they were in the wrong seat. Result: two players could go to the second round.
