The excitement continues to build at the King's Casino as the first-ever World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit events are taking place in Rozvadov, Czech Republic now through November 9.
The €3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller Event so far attracted 32 entrants after the first day of play, with 14 of those surviving until Day 2 which resumes play at 16:00 CET. It is possible that this tournament will exceed the €100,000 posted guaranteed prize pool as more players may enter the field with late-registration open until the first cards of Day 2 are dealt. King's Casino is anticipating at least a few more players with the remaining 14 players currently being assigned to three-tables to start the second day.
Currently it is Germany's Jan-Peter Jachtmann in the chip lead with 136,800 chips. Jachtmann already has a WSOP title to his name after winning a pot-limit Omaha event in 2012, and is looking to add to his already impressive poker resumé with a WSOP Circuit win.
Closely behind Jachtmann are Finland's Jani Vilmunen with 126,800 and France's Thomas Bichon with 108,800 chips. Blind levels will begin at 600/1,200 when play resumes, with the length of time per level increasing from 40 minutes yesterday to 60 minutes today.
In addition to providing live updates here on PokerNews, you can also follow the action on a feature table via live stream provided by the casino and hosted on PokerNews. You will also be able to follow the entire action of the final table via both mediums.
Coming up next is the much anticipated €25,000 WSOP Circuit Super High Roller on November 5-6 at 18:00 CET. That tournament features a €500,000 guarantee with many big names already preregistered including the top three chip leaders in the PLO High Roller Event — Jachtmann, Vilmunen, and Bichon. Other players registered include Patrik Antonius, Martin Kabrhel, Besim Hot, Roger Hairabedian, Quirin Zech, Hans Olymp, Leon Tsoukernik, Paul Newey, Elliott Smith, George Danzer, and Andreas Eiler.
The highlight of the poker festival is the €1,650 WSOP Circuit Main Event featuring a huge €1 million guarantee. This tournament slightly overlaps with the Super High Roller, featuring two opening days on November 6 & 7 at 14:00 CET. Play continues in the four-day tournament with Day Two and Day Three consecutively taking place on November 8 & 9 at 14:00 CET.
