Donald Rae in the Lead During The 2015 Master Classics Of Poker Main Event

ed26ebdbb7Much to viewers content this year’s 2015 Master Classics of Poker €4,500 Main Event is bringing some intense competition at the table. With 291 entries and the first place prize set at €299,614, there is quite a bit of cash up for grabs this year. Currently Englishman Donald Rae is in the lead with Makarios Avramidis at a close second.

Day 2 was a big day as people battled fiercely to remain in the competition for the final day. It all began when Zisimopoulos shoved the button with jack-three and Juha Helppi called with his ace-nine. When a jack-three was revealed on the flop, it was over for Helppi.

At the start of the day Antoine Vranken had had the largest stack on the table, but lost it all by the end of the day. Later Paul Berende took a stand on a pair of pocket aces which failed him on the river, and Ole Schemion lost it all to Killian Kramer.

With only 36 players remaining each will receive at least €5,762 cash. Who will win the final prize? Competition resumes Thursday afternoon at 2 pm with 90-minute levels. Then we will see who walks away with the cool six-figure payoff.

Current standings are as follows:

  1. Donald Rae 682,000
  2. Makarios Avramidis 635,000
  3. Georgios Zisimopoulos 550,000
