Welcome to Day 1b of the Coolbet Open €550 Main Event hosted at Olympic Park Casino and Hilton Park Hotel.
Yesterday's Day 1a kicked off the event with a bang by attracting 182 entrants or 52 more than the last Coolbet Open in May.
Finland's Mikko Tiitinen emerged as the leader of the pack yesterday after bagging a huge stack of 245,000 in chips. Also in the top five were Estonia's Kaido Koorits (second - 213,500), Coolbet Open Main Event champion Mathias Siljander from Finland (third - 195,500), Sweden's Vishal Joshi (fourth - 182,200) and Norway's Lise Hoyforslett (fifth 178,000.
Today's field size is expected to be much bigger for the second and final opening flight with the festival organizers looking at a record-breaking event for Estonia.
As was the case yesterday, players will begin the deep-stacked tournament with 30,000 in chips and blinds increasing every 45-minutes. Day 1b features ten blind levels with the action for the day expecting to end at approximately 8:30 p.m. EEST.
