Andrea Dato: Back to Back WPT Venice Final Tables

Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Andrea Dato

The hard work has been done and we have whittled down our field from 155 players to a final table of 6. We predicted a short and sweet shift and that is what we got. Massimo Mosele (9th), Jeremie Sochet (8th) and Jason Wheeler (7th) the three people to be ruthlessly cut from the final table casting.

Simon Ravnsbaek has reached his second WPT televised final table after appearing in the Vienna event last year, but the chip leader is Andrea Dato who amazingly has just reached back to back WPT Venice final tables after finishing in 4th place just two short months ago.

Here are the final table standings.

Seat 1: Andrea Dato - 1,591,000
Seat 2: Simon Ravnsbaek - 922,000
Seat 3: Andrea Carini - 347,000
Seat 4: Rinat Bogdanov - 907,000
Seat 5: Gianluca Trebbi - 343,000
Seat 6: Alessandro Longobardi - 558,000

The final table will commence at 14:00 (CET) and full live streaming will be available here at WPT.com

Jason Wheeler Eliminated in 7th Place (€25,625)

Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Jason Wheeler
Andrea Dato raises to 33,000 in the hijack seat, Andrea Carini three-bets in the  cutoff to 85,000 and Jason Wheeler comes in with the 436,000 squeeze. Dato makes the call, Carini folds and we have a monstrous confrontation.

Dato: Jclub Jspade
Wheeler: Adiamond Qspade

The board runs out Theart 5heart 5diamond 3spade Jdiamond and Dato becomes the chip leader while Wheeler becomes our final table bubble boy.

Dato ~ 1,591,000

Blind War: Dato v Ravnsbaek

Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

The action folds around to Andrea Dato in the small blind and he jokes to Simon Ravnsbaek about chopping it. In the end Dato limps from the small blind and Ravnsbaek checks so they can see a flop.

Flop: 9diamond 5spade 5heart

Dato bets 17,000, Ravnsbaek raises to 42,000 and Dato calls.

Turn: Aclub

Dato bets 40,000, Ravnsbaek raises to 113,000 and Dato calls.

River: Tspade

This time Dato makes a very small bet and Ravnsbaek starts thinking. After a few minutes he decides to fold and tells Dato that he can show if he likes but he declines.

Dato ~ 970,000
Ravnsbaek ~ 900,000

Quads for Dato

Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Andrea Dato
Andrea Dato raises to 33,000 in the hijack and Gianluca Trebbi defends his big blind. The flop is Qdiamond 4heart 2spade and Trebbi check-calls a 30,000 c-bet. On the turn we have yet another deuce 2club and this time Trebbi check-calls a 52,000 Dato bet.

Heading to the river Trebbi has around 400,000 behind and Dato has 560,000. We see the 6club and Trebbi checks to Dato who bets 130,000. Trebbi doesn't need long to make his mind up and flicks a solitary red 5k chip into the middle of the table to indicate a call. Dato shows 2heart 2diamond for quads and the Trebbi hand suddenly became irrelevant as he slides it unseen to the dealer.

Dato ~ 800,000
Trebbi ~ 292,000

Bogdanov Closing in on Ravnsbaek

Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

The chip leader Simon Ravnsbaek raises to 28,000 in the cutoff and Rinat Bogdanov calls in the small blind. Gianluca Trebbi folds in the big blind and the duo share a flop of 6spade 4diamond 2club. Bogdanov decided to check-raise to 70,000 and Ravnsbaek calls. On the turn we have the 9heart and Bogdanov moves 120,000 into the mixer and Ravnsbaek decides to fold.

Bogdanov ~ 900,000
Ravnasbaek ~ 1,100,000

Wheeler Shoving

Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Jason Wheeler open shoves for 330,000 in the hijack seat, "I have 330,000…well around 375,000 after this hand," says Wheeler before everyone folds.

"That's a big shove," says Ravnsbaek.

"Guess I am done folding," says Wheeler.

"Tilt?"

"I don't tilt often," says Wheeler.

A few hands later and Andrea Carini raises from the cutoff to 33,000 and Wheeler moves all-in from the big blind and Carini folds.

"What is your stack now Jason?" Asks Dato.

"Around 410,000 - enough to some damage," says Wheeler.

Jeremie Sochet Eliminated in 8th Place (€19,055)

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Jeremie Sochet & Jason Wheeler
Rinat Bogdanov raises to 27,000 in the cutoff and Jeremie Sochet moves all-in from the small blind for 94,000 more. The action folds back around to Bogdanov and he makes the call.

Bogdanov: Kspade Jspade
Sochet: Jclub Jheart

The flop is safe for Sochet Tspade 8spade 4club but the Kclub on the turn places his tournament life at risk. Sochet is left hoping for a Jack on the river but instead we get the Kdiamond and Sochet is out.

Bogdanov ~ 723,000

Massimo Mosele Eliminated in 9th Place (€13,795)

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Massimo Mosele Out
Every tournament has one. The rock who somehow manages to get super deep in the tournament without seemingly playing a hand. This particular rock - Massimo Mosele - played two hands today. The first was an open shove that got through uncontested and the second is this one…

Massimo Mosele open shoves for 109,000, in early position, and Andrea Dato calls in the hijack seat. Mosele turns over Kspade Qclub and Dato has Aheart Jdiamond. The board runs out Theart Tdiamond 2spade 3diamond Jheart and Dato eliminates is fellow countryman.

Dato ~ 670,000

Wheeler Continues His Bad Start

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Jason Wheeler
Jason Wheeler opens from the cutoff with a bet of 26,000 and Andrea Dato defends his big blind. The flop is Aheart Tclub 6club and Dato check-calls a 36,000 Wheeler c-bet. On the turn we have another club 9club and both players check. The final card is the 8club and once again the action is checked through.

Dato is the first to reveal his hand and he has nut flush with Aclub 3club. Wheeler angrily snaps Adiamond Kdiamond onto the table and he just cannot seem to win a hand.

Dato ~ 520,000
Wheeler ~ 455,000
