Hendriks Amped as He Secures Day 2 Chip Lead - MPNPT Bratislava

Day 2 of MPNPT Bratislava has played to a close and it is Alex Hendriks who has survived the day’s turbulence to find himself the leading chip stack of the remaining 13 players.

The ten levels of the day saw the 97 who returned from the first two days (and nine additional rebuyers) reduced to this number, though the poker that preceded the close was full of dramatic twists and turns. We reached the bubble halfway through the day – Georgios Drakkakis the unfortunate soul to miss the payouts by a whisker – though his pain was doubtless salved by the news he would be freerolling the next MPNPT in Bulgaria.

The 45 players remaining were buoyant with a guaranteed cash of €900 in their pockets and a number of them exited in quickfire fashion following Drakkakis’ elimination, looking to give themselves a shot at a more impressive payout. There were a few familiar and experienced faces who made it through to the cash, including Irish pair Dara O’Kearney and David Lappin though both exited shortly after earning their euros.

Monika Zukowicz crept past the bubble with a smallish stack, but her fortunes turned round in dazzling fashion as she went on a coruscating run to threaten the chip leaders with a mountainous stack.

Zukowicz looked  poised to make her first MPNPT final table – but fell afoul of Alex Hendriks in a huge one million chip flip to leave her hopes in tatters – elimination following shortly afterward.

Zukowicz’ misfortune provided a springboard for Hendriks to snatch the chip lead at the close of play, though it is still anyone’s game with the stacks so closely bunched together. UK national Colin Guthrie provided some fun hands and commentary as he reached an impressive 1,100,000 by the close and he’ll be one who has an eye on the chip lead when they resume tomorrow.

Here’s how the players finished up at the close:

Name Qualifier Status Country Chips Table Seat
Alex Hendriks Netherlands 1,145,000 2 7
Colin Guthrie UK 1,100,000 1 6
Danijel Kucurski Betsson Bosnia-Herzegovina 1,056,000 1 4

Will Dorey Betsafe UK 540,000 2 3
Sebastian Langrock Germany 531,000 2 9
Jussi Mattila Finland 454,000 1 3
Dominik Desset Slovakia 436,000 1 9
Daniel Camus Belgium 378,000 1 1

We’ll be back tomorrow at 13:00 where we will play to the final table and down to a winner. It’s too close to say who our next champion will be and it should be fascinating watching this battle play out. Join us to witness the dramatic denouement! Good night poker fans!
