Van Wesemael Happy He Started Early

The 11 a.m. start time of the tournament isn’t made for everyone. Sander van Wesemael wasn’t entirely sure about starting so early with 11 levels being played out today, but after about 1,5 hours of play, he sure is happy he started early.

One of Van Wesemael’s recent victories started with him raising to 600 from the hijack and being called by the Lucian Stoian from the cutoff. Markus Heikkila sat on the button and three-bet to 2,100, but neither Van Wesemael or Stoian gave up their hands.

The flop came down :::3c:::6c:::Kc and all three players checked. They also all checked on the :::Qc turn card and the :::8d river card. Van Wesemael was the first one to table his cards as he showed :::6h:::6d for a flopped set of sixes. Stoian and Heikkila both mucked their cards and Van Wesemael won another pot to lift him well over 60,000 already.

Sander van Wesemael 65,000 35,000
Markus Heikkila 22,500
Lucian Stoian 11,000
