A big field was expected for the third and final regular starting day of the 2019 888poker LIVE Bucharest Festival €888 Main Event and the ballroom on the first floor of the Intercontinental Bucharest saw poker players from near and far join the action to create a field of 228 entries.

Along with the 77 entries in the turbo heat 1d that kicked off at 9 p.m. local time, a field of 505 entries emerged to easily surpass the guaranteed prize pool of €300,000 and even beat the 469-entry strong field of the previous year at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel.

After 12 levels of 40 minutes each, only 68 players bagged up chips and it was Vasile Rablou that topped the Day 1c counts with a stack of 257,000. Rablou became one of the early big stacks when his turned full house bested the flopped nut flush of Levente Pal. Rablou remained near the top of the leaderboard throughout the remainder of the day and was in the pole position when all was done and dusted.

Another familiar face in the top 10 counts for Day 1c is 888poker ambassador Sofia Lovgren. The Swede entered late and quickly ran up a stack, then spent the late stages of the day alongside big stacks Alsharif Osama Zeid and Eugen Chiva. Lovgren ended the day with the fifth-biggest stack of 192,700 behind Ran Shahar (219,200), Bahadir Hatipoglu (212,300) and aforementioned Chiva (199,000).

Other big stacks and notables that advanced from Day 1c are Cristian Tardea (188,500), Bogdan Berinde (183,100), Raoul Iancovici (176,700), Lucian Bera (125,200), Dany Parlafes (120,500), Peter Jaksland (96,600), Maureen Bloechlinger (66,400), Toni Judet (44,200), and Morten Mortensen (34,000).

The 888poker ambassadors Chris Moorman and Martin Jacobson were eliminated on Day 1c, but had another shot at making Day 2 in the turbo heat 1c in which they were even sat next to each other. Jacobson's first bullet came to an end with ace-queen against pocket queens and he tried one more time without success.

They weren't the only notables from the international poker circuit that had to leave Day 1c empty-handed without anything to show for. Marius Pertea, Eusebiu Jalba, Carmen Zainescu, Kfir Ivgi, Traian Bostan, WSOP bracelet winner Alexandru Papazian, Johan Guilbert, Omar Lakhdari, Nandor Solyom, and Vladimir Velikov were among the casualties. In fact, Pertea was among the first to bow out, gave it another shot and busted during the final hands of the night when he jammed the button with king-six and was called by Bogdan Berinde with ace-ten.

No Day 2 Yet for Pertea

• Ниво 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante
Marius Pertea
Marius Pertea

Down to around 40,000, Marius Pertea jammed on the button and was called by Bogdan Berinde in the small blind. Ran Shahar in the big blind announced a fold but kept his cards in the hand. "I will show you what I folded," he added.

Marius Pertea: {k-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Bogdan Berinde: {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The board came {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Pertea was eliminated. Shahar flashed the {a-Spades}, which would have chopped the pot.

Even More for Shahar

• Ниво 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Ran Shahar sent a short stack to the rail with ace-queen versus king-queen and then won a pot off Davide Ridi, when the Italian barreled three streets on a Queen-jack high board. Shahar check-called all the way with a flopped open-ender and turned two pair, holding queen-ten, and caught Ridi bluffing with ace-king high.

Ivgi Departs With a Beat

• Ниво 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

In a battle of the blinds, Kfir Ivgi was all in for just a few big blinds and the {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Mihail Lala looked him up with the {j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and the {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} board gave Lala a winning straight.
