Day 2 of the Main Event took center stage at the South American KSOP GGPoker on Saturday, with more than 700 players already in attendance. As the game progresses, this number decreases and the survivors get closer to financial reward. Fernando Valverde was one of the standout performers.
The Samba Poker Team pro won a huge pot on the last hand before the first break of the day and ended up with over 100 blinds in the tournament. The blinds for this hand are 1,000/2,500 and there are initially four players. Valverde raised to 5,000 chips, which were paid by three other players, including the big blind.
The flop showed Samba Pro c-betting to 6,500. His first opponent paid, but the second opponent decided to raise the price. With less than 38,000 chips, his second opponent called and folded the big blind. The action returned to Fernando, who decided to call. However, the player who flattened the C-bet also decided to go all-in.
With a total of 101,500 chips, Valverde called again and set up a triple all-in for 264,000 with the chip right in the middle. At the showdown, everyone took sides. Fernando is in the best situation when he has three bets on his table. The player with the shortest stack held , holding top pair, while the last opponent held , holding a flush draw.
Valverde was very picky and took a scary turn with an opening at the table to finish it off by flushing his opponent with more chips. The deck was filled with emotion before it was brought back. Someone changed the order again on the river, giving Fernando a full house, who beat both players and sealed the pot with over 100 blinds.
“One day our victory will definitely come,” he celebrated the player, who took some time off during the break to continue building his new chip, which is now huge. “One Time” succeeded.
