Kabrhel At It Again, Grabs Lead in WSOPC Rozvadov!
It was a long day at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov on Day 2 of the €1,650 WSOP International Circuit Main Event as the 292 players that survived the Day 1s came together to play into the money. Another 47 players decided to reenter just before the start of the day, and a few online qualifiers didn’t show up but were added to the prize pool; bringing the total amount of entries to 796.
After 12 levels of an hour each, Martin Kabrhel took the chip lead into the final day with 2,235,000 in chips out of all 30 players who have bagged and tagged. Kabrhel won several big hands throughout the day, but in one of the last hands of the day, he took the chip lead by rivering a straight against Konstantinon Misailidis who also made it through to Day with 736,000 total.
Second in the counts is Timur Margolin who bagged an evenly impressive 1,981,000. He burst the bubble when Aleksandr Konovalov ran ace-king into his tens in the fourth round of hand-for-hand play. Konovalov hit a king on the flop, but the ten on the turn meant the end of his tournament life.
Closing the podium for the day was Amar Begovic who had steadily been chipping up throughout the day. Other stacks to take note of are Stanislav Koleno (1,348,000), Paris Stavridis (1,344,000), Ben Zech (1,276,000), Jose Acebes Lopez, and Grzegorz Wyraz (977,000).
There were many well-known players that busted before making the money stages of the tournament, including Jeremy Williams, Andreas Hildebrand, Milad Oghabian, Sebastian Langrock, Micky Blasi, Robert Auer, Harald Sammer, Makarios Avramidis, Jaroslaw Sikora, and Robin Hegele.
Players that made the money but not the final day include Eyal Bensimhon who managed to cash five out of the 6 six tournaments he entered here during this festival. He couldn’t win with king-jack against the ace-jack of Misailidis. Andrei Demidov ran his ace-ten into the queens of Igor Pihela and Pierre Neuville ran king-queen into Omer Yoruk’s ace-queen. Cameron Hunt lost with ace-king against the tens of Jamie Nixon and so on.
