2015 WPT Amsterdam Main Event Day 4: Warburton Leads Final Table

Steve Warburton

Day 4 of the 2015 World Poker Tour (WPT) Amsterdam Main Event saw the field of 16 thin to the official final table of six. Everyone was eyeing the €215,000 in first place, but 10 players would come up short of making it to the final day to be in contention.

The only Canadian to make Day 4 was Sorel Mizzi, who started the day third in chips. Mizzi managed to last through most of the day, but in the second-last level ran into a bad beat to lose most of his chips. Mizzi was in the small blind, facing a raise from Jason Wheeler, and a reraise from Fredrik Andersson. He decided to four-bet to 228,000 and Wheeler snap folded. Andersson thought about it for a bit before moving all in. After getting a count of 864,000, Mizzi made the call.

Mizzi's {A-Spades}{K-Spades} was in a dominating position over Andersson's {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} when they flipped their cards over, but the flop of {K-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs} gave Mizzi the club sweats. The turn {Q-Diamonds} improved Andersson a little more, and the river {J-Clubs} sealed the hand for Andersson with the club flush. Mizzi was left with just a few big blinds, while Andersson vaulted into the chip lead. Mizzi busted shortly after when he shoved his small stack with {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} only to run into Wheeler with {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}. The board bricked for Mizzi, and he collected €14,600 for 10th place.

Both Wheeler and Andersson made it to the final table, but it will be Steve Warburton from the U.K., who cashed in the 2014 WSOP Main Event, leading the pack. He starts the final table with 2,810,000, and Andersson is the only other player with more than two million chips, bagging 2,195,000. Day 2 chip leader, and Day 3 runner-up Joep van den Bijgaart finished the day in third with 1,650,000. The full final table with seat draw is below.
