Lynch, Kyte, and Rosqvist Wins Titles on Day 4 of The Festival Series Nottingham
Day 4 of The Festival Series Nottingham was a grand success with three new winners at Dusk Till Dawn.
Norwegian cash game and tournament crusher Jon Kyte proved he can win in many formats by shipping the £230 Open Face Chinese event. William Lynch made a four-way deal in the £120 PLO 4/5/6 before winning the event and Mats Rosqvist won the £120 Deepstack.
This is not all as yesterday also featured the second of four opening flights in the £450 Main Event. Marian Dumitrache took the overall lead in the Main Event after parlaying his 200,000 opening stack into 3,565,000 in chips. This puts him ahead of Day 1a chip leader Ali Ayub who ended the first opening flight with 3,420,000. Sascha Manns is in a prime spot for his third The Festival Series Main Event final table in a row as he finished in second place in the Day 1b flight with 2,965,000, while Optibet streamer Gatis Reigass also is in a good spot after ending the day with 2,135,000.
Meanwhile, Daniel Hong knocked The Festival Series Founder Martin "Franke" von Zweigbergk off the top of the Cash Game Challenge leaderboard after winning 1,103.6 big blinds in the £2/£5 no-limit hold'em stream last night. The player that wins the most big blinds at any Cash Game Challenge session will be lavishly rewarded with a package valued at €1,600 to The Festival Series Malta at Portomaso Casino on May 15-21.
