Ole Schemion Leads Star-Studded Final 99 into Day 4 of ISPT Wembley Main Event

Share this

Sunday was a day for poker — everywhere in the world — but the spotlight shone on Day 3 of the International Stadiums Poker Tour at Wembley Stadium. The cards went in the air to 421 players but by the time eight 60-minute levels had played out, only 99 of them remained. Ole Schemion finished the day as the leader of the pack.

Schemion was one of four players bagging up a seven-figure stack but his was the biggest with 1,534,000 waiting for him on Day 4. Schemion will wield the big stack like a weapon as he mows his way towards the top. He is a very gifted poker player and at the ripe young age of 20-years old, he's already has close to $3.1 million in live tournament winnings. He's going to do his best to add €1,000,000 to that impressive total and will be hard to get around for those trying to climb up.

Schemion's loose aggressive style not only puts players on the defense, but also causes them to make ill-timed moves against him. One such move happened toward the end of play when Schemion led out on a {6-}{4-}{3-}{9-}{Q-} board and then called when his opponent moved all-in. His opponent held ace-king for complete air and Schemion tabled queen-six for two pair and drove the dagger home. Schemion dominated each table he sat at and the young German finished the day as a deserved chip leader.

The three other players that ended Day 3 with over 1,000,000 chips: Neil Benardout (1,400,000), Day 2a chip leader Alban Juen (1,100,000) and Ben Middleton (1,049,000) are all in a good spot to win a lot of cash in this competition.

Toby Lewis (973,000), Pete Linton (920,000), Sam Trickett (805,000), Mat Frankland (701,000) and Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott (700,000) are other notable big stacks.

Each of the returning players is guaranteed at least €2,400 for their efforts thanks to the bubble twins. During the hand-for-hand period there were four simultaneous all-in and call situations and the atmosphere was charged with high voltage. Two short stacks survived their all-in confrontation, but David Gent and Tomasz Gluszko did not and they were eliminated on the bubble at the same time and shared the €540 min-cash.
