The Monster Stack Event
The Event #5 €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold’em advertised a guaranteed prize pool of €500k, which got crushed at the end of the starting flights. A new prize pool of €639,027 has come into picture which will pay at least €1,605 to the top hundred players. The tournament has already seen the light of Day 2 with 666 entries in the field. However, at the end of Day 2, only 14 survivors have managed to sail across.
Indians At The Event
Apart from Dhaval Lachhwani, other Indian heavyweights seen at the event were Manish Goenka and Bharath Janardhan. Janardhan, who qualified from Day 1A, failed to make into the money bubble while, Goenka busted his stacks on Day 2 finishing 29th for €3,080. In the on-going series, Goenka holds the title of finishing 6th at the PLO event a few days back.
Hopes In Lachhwani
As for Lachhwani, hopes are riding high on this young man. The WSOPE bracelet aspirant has an incredible track of winning several online tournaments back home. The winner of the IOPC Sunday SuperStack in July and SSS Main Event in August is currently ranking 7th in chip count at the end of the day.
The Stack Status So Far
Leading the 14 survivors is Brazil’s Luiz Antonio Duarte Ferreira Filho with 4.3 million chips. And looks like Sr. Luiz Ferreira is also in the fray though shortest stacked with 510k chips. Poker runs in the family, it seems.
