WPT Amsterdam Final Table Set with Jan Jansma in Front

May 12, 2017

Jan Jansma

 

The official World Poker Tour final table was set in the Season XVI WPT Amsterdam €3,300 Main Event on Friday, and just six players remain from the 224-entry field.

Jan Jansma finished Day 3 with the chip lead thanks to his stack of 2.365 million, and he’ll have a nice cushion over the rest of the field. The closest competitor to Jansma was Daniel Danivar with 1.8 million.

Jansma hails from the Netherlands and has more than $140,000 in live tournament earnings entering this event, according to his profile on HendonMob.com. He’s making his first WPT cash in this event, and not only that, but this cash has already proved the largest of Jansma’s live poker career.

Jansma grabbed the chip with seven players left, but slipped back on the leaderboard until the final hand of the night, the one that secured him the top spot.

Sebastian Malec had limped in from under the gun with the blinds at 15,000/30,000 with a 5,000 ante. Jansma kicked it up to 150,000 from the cutoff seat, and play folded back to Malec. The former European Poker Tour Barcelona Main Event winner moved all in for 955,000, and Jansma called with the QhQs. Malec was in trouble with the 8s8d and couldn’t find the help he needed on the AcJh5h6c2h board.

Malec was eliminated in seventh place to set the official WPT final table, and he took home €21,750 for his efforts.

Malec also earned a €1,000 for finishing in the money in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event thanks to a bonus promotion from the WPT as part of the PokerStars Championship WPT MonteDam Swing. Players who cashed in the €1,100 National Championship or €5,300 Main Event at the PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo, or those who cashed in the €1,500 buy-in WPTDeepStacks Amsterdam event, were eligible for this MonteDam Swing bonus if they were to also cash in the WPT Amsterdam Main Event. Malec and five others players all earned the prize – Omar Lakhdari, Tomas Soderstrom, Fabrice Soulier, Louis Salter, and Andreas Klatt.

Speaking of Klatt, he was the player all eyes were on heading into Day 3 of the WPT Amsterdam €3,300 Main Event. Fourth in chips among the final 32 players, all Klatt needed to do was make the top 28 to finish in the money and win the MonteDam Swing leaderboard. Not only did he achieve that goal, but Klatt rode to a 10th-place finish worth €13,435.

Others to bust in the money but short of the final table included Noah Boeken (12th – €13,435) and the husband-and-wife combo of Claire Renaut (13th – €11,515) and Fabrice Soulier (17th – €9,595).

Joining Jansma and Danivar at Saturday’s final table will be Jorn Walthaus, a top Dutch player with more than $725,000 in live tournament earnings, Louis Salter, a young British pro with nearly $1 million in live earnings entering this event, Dutch player Jonathan Rozema, and Shyngis Satubayev, who placed seventh in the Season XVI WPT Amsterdam €6,000 High Roller just a few days ago.

The final six will be back in action on Saturday with the cards in the air at 2 p.m. local time, all competing for the €152,600 first-place prize and $15,000 entry into the season-ending WPT Tournament of Champions. Coverage will begin at that time right here on WPT.com, or you can watch the stream of the final table that will be broadcast on twitch.tv/WorldPokerTour on a 30-minute delay.
