Day 2 of the Cash Game Festival Bratislava at Banco Casino was a huge success.
The day began for those with the hospitality package with a laser tag competition at Space World. In addition, players were able to enjoy ping pong, foosball, pool, and FIFA, Of course, there were free drinks throughout the more than three hours spent at the venue along with free lunch.
The action at the tables was hot as well with eight tables running simultaneously or one more than yesterday. To put this into perspective, the casino usually attracts one to two tables on a typical Thursday night.
Cash Game Festival Head of Media Henry Kilbane is normally commentating the feature tables. When a seat opened up on the early €1/€3 no-limit hold'em feature he decided to show his fans that he can play poker as well. He wound up being the biggest winner after booking a tidy profit of €380 or 126.7 big blinds.
Kilbane wasn't the star of the day as this honor belongs to Unibet Poker Ambassador and The Chip Race Co-host David Lappin. After the game changed to €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha at the feature table, Lappin bought in for €532. He transformed this into a massive stack of €4,694 for a profit of €4,162 or 832.8 big blinds.
Lappin won pot after pot in a dominating fashion and supplanted Peter La Terra for the lead in the trophy contest awarded to the player that wins the most big blinds throughout the festival. He agreed to a Facebook Live interview later in the festival to discuss some key spots and his thoughts on the festival.
Tomorrow is expected to be even bigger with crowds coming in for the weekend action. Stay tuned at PokerNews as we bring you all the highlights from the Cash Game Festival Bratislava.
