WPT Amsterdam: 16 Players Left - Andersson Back in The Lead
Fredrik Andersson, WPT Amsterdam.
Posted on Friday, May 15, 2015 by "T".
Day 1A chip leader Fredrik Andersson is once again back at top of the chip counts after a successful run on Day 3. The Swede bagged up 1.4 million chips at the end of Day 3 - almost 400k more that his closest opponents (the only other players with seven figure sums) Day 2 chip leader Joep van den Bijgaart in second place and Sorel Mizzi in third place.
Among the remaining 16 players who will return today one can find, besides the players already mentioned above, notables such as WPT Champions Club member Giacomo Fundaro with 849k in chips, and WPT Amsterdam High Roller winner Jason Wheeler with 584k.
The remaining players are now guaranteed to take home at least $16,365 each - but, of course, everyone will aim to make it to the final table where a $239,559 first-place prize is reserved for winner. We will be back with a final table recap on Mondy morning.

| It must be a great feeling for these guys, that no matter what, they will take home very good money. Sorel Mizzi must have a great chance of going onto win this but there is a lot of poker to be played yet |

| The last I saw of this tournament Sorel Mizzi had taken the chip lead overtaking Andersson but stacks are very close and there are a couple of local players close behind. Wheeler is still in a good position and has lots of experience.|

| Farid Yachou Wins WPT Amsterdam in his First Live Tournament|
Farid Yachou started the final table with the second shortest stack. Jason Wheeler was the only player who had less chips, and the American would be the first player to hit the rail.
Final Table Results:
1st. Farid Yachou - $239,559
2nd. Steve Warburton - $167,134
3rd. Kees van Brugge - $100,281
4th. Fredrik Andersson - $75,768
5th. Joep van den Bijgaart - $56,826
6th. Jason Wheeler - $45,973

| I don't think a poker tournament is something you could spoil off from each other. If you are frequent on other sites you might see the news/articles about these before BRM gets to them every Monday, but on the other hand it's totally not that interesting who wins and who fails anyway.|
