Aaron Lim In Final 14 Players As Partouche Agree To Honour The €5million Guarantee
Posted at 20:00 2012-09-08 by Matthew Pitt
Yesterday we reported that Australian pro Aaron Lim was in with a chance of winning a massive €1,000,000 at the Partouche Poker Tour but that amount has since increased to €1,172,850 after the organisers agreed to honour the €5,000,000 despite maintaining that amount was never meant to be set as a guarantee.
The poker community was in uproar yesterday as the Partouche Poker Tour CEO, Patrick Partouche, basically mocked the players for believing their was a €5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool in place. The Partouche brand has suffered irreparable damage as a consequence but they have tried to make amends by adding the “missing” €735,420 to the prize pool. The new final table payouts are as follows:
Just 14 players remain in the tournament, 14 players who are lead by Karen Sarkisyan and is 1,833,000 stack. Lim will start Day 4 armed with 1,767,000 chips; enough to place him third overall.
Other notable players include the United Kingdom's Tom Alner, Italian high stakes cash game specialist Marcello Marigliano, Paul Tedeschi and the man-of-the-moment Dan Smith. Today should be a short day with the remaining players battling it out at the felt until the final table is set, hopefully Lim will be there and well-stacked when it is decided.
