The stars came out, including the likes of Liv Boeree, Marcin Horecki, Theo Jorgensen and Jan Heitmann of Team PokerStars Pro, plus the SportStar Fatima Moreira de Melo, and a host of other top names in the game.As is typical, some survived to fight another day, while plenty of others perished.

Theo Jorgensen is very well classified and is, in my opinion, the one who can best win this event. Of course they all know a lot of the game and they're all used to the kind of pressure they're feeling in this moment, but i guess Theo Jorgensen is more prepared than the others due to his experience.
