2016 Eureka Poker Tour Rozvadov Main Event Day 1b: Quentin Dellis Tops
The second flight of the PokerStars.net Eureka Poker Tour Rozvadov €1,100 Main Event saw a total of 338 entries. After the completion of Level 10, only 132 survivors bagged up chips. Those unfortunate to bust had the option to immediately reenter and participate in Day 1c that kicked off at 10 p.m. local time with at least 90 players, and we'll have information on those that advanced there once play has been completed.
Quentin Dellis bagged up the most chips on Day 1b by claiming 201,100. The Belgian cruised with a bigger stack towards the end of the day and then took the chips of Markus Hofer during the last three hands to finish on top. Dellis had seven Hendon Mob results to his name prior to this event, with all of them representing final table appearances. The biggest cash took place during the UKIPT Dublin only a few weeks ago where he came sixth for a payday of €31,880.
Other big stacks to finish the day included Martin Ilavsky (174,100), Jean-Marc Jelk (168,100), Jonas Lauck (159,300), Amir Mozaffarian (157,300), and Feryat Toprakli (140,600).
Local player Yehuda Cohen finished the day with 135,600, followed by Dag Palovic (132,600) and Hannes Speiser (100,700). Season 5 runner-up Josef Pavelka advanced with 93,300 in chips.
Among those that failed to bag up chips for Day 2 so far were Enrico Rudelitz, Jan Nakladal, Petr Jelinek, €330 Rozvadov Cup winner Jaroslav Peter, Matias Ruzzi, Martin Kabrhel, Eureka 4 Rozvadov champion Martin Meciar, Marko Mikovic, Antonin Duda, Paul Michaelis, and recent World Poker Tour National Brussels runner-up Maria Lampropoulos. Most of them already jumped back into the turbo Day 1c heat with 20-minute levels in order to take another shot at this juicy prize pool.
So far, there are 557 entries when you combine Day 1a and Day 1b, but that number is guaranteed to change and the attendance for a Eureka Main Event in the King's Casino is likely to increase for the fourth year in a row. Last year, in Season 5, there were 664 entries and Raphael Wimmer emerged victorious for a payday of €99,685.
Full chip counts for Day 1c will be provided Sunday morning, and the PokerNews Live Reporting team will continue providing coverage with Day 2 starting at 2 p.m. local time.
