Two further 888poker ambassadors made it to Day 2, as Chris Moorman (57,000 and Martin Jacobson (16,900) spent most of the turbo heat 1d on the same table. They will share the same starting table for Day 2 as well and Jacobson will need a quick double with just seven big blinds at 1,000/2,500 with a 2,500 big blind ante. Once the cards are back in the air, the prize pool information will be released and all players receive four fresh 30-second time banks.

The action recommences at 1 p.m. local time and the blind levels remain at 40 minutes each until the final table has been reached. Between 12 and 14 levels are likely to be played on the penultimate tournament day and the live stream with 30 minutes delay and hole cards displayed will kick off on the 888poker Twitch channel after the first break of the day. As of 8 p.m. local time, Day 1 of the €1,700 High Roller is scheduled to kick off and the defending champion of that event is 888poker ambassador Ana Marquez.

The PokerNews team will be on the tournament floor to cover all the action of the Main Event until a champion is crowned.
