Christopher Fitzgerald

The second and final opening flight of the $25,500 Super High Roller Championship in the partypoker WPT World Online Championships is in the books.

The Day 1b field attracted 111 players with 17 survivors. This brings the total field up to 199 players with 28 total survivors when factoring in the 88 players and 11 survivors on Day 1b. This generated $25,000 in extra value with the mouth-watering $5 million guarantee just missed.

Christopher Fitzgerald emerged as the Day 1b chip leader after turning his 100,000 starting stack into a monster stack of 1,312,702 in chips after 18 blind levels of 25 minutes each.

Also bagging seven-figure stacks on Sunday were Daniel Rezaei (1,176,375) and partypoker Ambassador Jason Koon (1,007,130).

Meanwhile, partypoker Ambassador Ludovic Geilich will also bring a big stack forward to Day 2 after successfully ending Day 1b with a stack of 797,634.

Pascal Hartmann Leads the Pack

Pascal Hartmann will enter Day 2 as the chip leader after running up his stack to a colossal stack of 1,964,082 in chips.

Hartmann is a well-known poker pro and has navigated himself to several deep runs during the WPTWOC series. He's not managed to take down a Championship Event yet, bit this incredible start has done his chances of glory no harm at all.

Also bagging big on Day 1a was Mikita Badziakouski (1,250,461) and Ole Schemion with Kahle Burns (969,133) falling just short.

Day 2 Begins on Sept. 21 at 8:05 p.m. CEST

The 28 remaining players will return at 8:05 p.m. CEST on Sept. 21 in hopes of putting themselves in a good position for the massive $1,094,460 top prize. The final 28 players are already each guaranteed at least a min-cash of $56,750.

The action will begin with blinds at 7,000/14,000 along with an ante of 1,800 and will increase every 40 minutes. The day will end when seven players are left remaining, who will all be guaranteed at least a $155,061 seventh-place payout.
