Fabio Peluso running for victory. Day 3 of the PokerStars European Poker Tour 2022 presented by Monte-Carlo Casino®️ ended last night and the last six players are ready for the final day of the € 1,100 French Poker Series (FPS) Main Event.
The last six men survived the 62 players who started Day 3 to secure a prize of at least € 54,020, while the first prize of € 290,910 awaits the winner from a total prize pool of € 1,841,280.
Jacob Amsellem is the chip leader of this sextet, after starting the day as one of the short stacks. He is followed by Lucas Scafini in second place and our Fabio Peluso in third. Tibor Nagygyorgy, Florian Guimond and Francois Vincenti complete the first six.
The Day 2 Chronicle
Amsellem arrived on Day 3 with one of the shortest stacks but the tournament’s lead was played fairly quickly, in the first two levels after the double knockout of Jaime Cervantes and Raymond Attal. Amsellem remained active all day and played a decisive role in several eliminations. He entered the final table with over 18 million chips and finished the day with over 20 million.
Scafini, formerly the chip leader of Day 1d, remains alive and will return to Sporting this afternoon with a big stack after eliminating Tahar Said to close the evening.

The Italians on Day 2, super Fabio Peluso
Eugenio Peralta was among those who started big, also thanks to the rare double cooler against Alexandre Sette and Xavier Rouayroux. In one of the most important hands of the evening, Sette showed up at the show with the women, Rouayroux with the Kappa, both of whom adjusted the axes of Peralta. The blue then closed in 12th place for a coin of € 14,860.
Unfortunate, however, his exit against the chip leader at the end of the day: the blue put his last 12 BB about button, called by Amsellem who started dominated: aq vs q 6. Color on the river for Amsellem and Peralta out of the tournament.
A similar draw for Roberto Forestiero, out with a pair of 5 against that of Kappa by Florian Guimond, and for Antonio Crocetta, out by Florian Decamps with a 2 vs aq.
Fratricidal clash for the exit of Alessandro Adinolfo, birded by Fabio Peluso, at 9 vs 7. A 7 turned the situation in Fabio’s advantage.
This is the Payout of our:
12 ° Eugenio Peralta € 14,860 17 ° Roberto Forestiero € 10,810 20 ° Antonio Crocetta € 9,450 21 ° Alessandro Adinolfo € 8,250 23 ° Luca Marchetti € 8,250 30 ° Giulio Astarita € 6,280 31 ° Alfonso Simone € 6,280 36 ° Giuseppe Zarbo € 5,490 39 ° Angelo Castriota € 5,490 46 ° Michele Guerrini € 4790 48 ° Diego Angeli € 4,790 52 ° Andrea Rocci € 4,790 58 ° Giacomo Lepre € 4,200 62 ° Nicola D’Anselmo € 4,200
