WPT Amsterdam: 54 Players Survived Day 1A; Swede Has The Lead

Posted on 12 May 2015 by "T".

Day 1A of the first-ever World Poker Tour Amsterdam Main Event (€3,300 buy-in) began with 130 entries and ended with 54 survivors after nine levels of play, and Fredrik Andersson, from Sweden, finished at the top of the chip counts with 228,100.

According to PokerNews, Andersson came out of nowhere to accumulate such a big stack, mainly thanks to him playing very agressive in the last levels of the day. Other top stacks include Noah Boeken (195,200), Muntathar Albadawi (189,700), and Barrie Pietersz (133,100) .

Here are some notables that made it through to Day 2: WPT Champions Club members Yevgeniy Timoshenko (86,600) and Anthony Zinno (47,700), recent WPT Amsterdam High Roller winner Jason Wheeler (92,800) and the runner-up Jack Salter (56,100).

Day 1B starts at 2pm local time and everyone who didn't make it through the first day can give it another shot. We will be back with another update tomorrow morning.

What a great city to hold a poker tournament. Amsterdam, is without doubt, the best city i have ever been on holiday and i am very jealous of these players and would love to swap places with any of them

Good luck to Fredrik Andersson,I think he has been around for a while now but I can't remember seeing him win a big tournament.He has competition with Noah Boeken,Wheeler and Salter and still loads of players yet to enter.

well, doubletop - I can get the idea from your enthusiasm about what did you really do in Amsterdam during your holiday ;D But the players probably were not followed the tipical tourist destinations since their main job was to perform their best in this tourey - I guess there was no red lamp district nor coffee shop 4 them. Not even Van Gogh.
