An exciting Day 1b of the PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague €5,300 Main Event saw 268 players advance from a field of 745 after ten levels of 60 minutes each. Together with the 391 players that registered for Day 1a, the field is currently up to 1,136 entries with 395 of them still in contention after both starting days. Late registration will be open right up until the start of Day 2, after which the total prize pool and payouts will be announced.

Well-known pro Bart Lybaert from Belgium bagged the biggest batch of them all, spinning his 30,000 starting stack all the way up to 333,400. Lybaert has already racked up over $3M in lifetime winnings — including a €1,100 EUREKA win for €115,000 (the predecessor of the EPT National) right here in Prague — and will be looking to add yet another big score to his already impressive poker resumé. Lybaert will come back second in chips overall, sitting behind Pierre Calamusa who bagged the overall lead with 457,000 on Day 1a.

Following Lybaert to round out the top 5 of the day were Niklas Lehnert-Rappel (267,000), Alex Kulev (266,800), Jonathan Therme (256,400) and Jakub Krawinski (236,600). Notables such as Dario Sammartino (168,000), Jussi Nevanlinna (155,800), Sebastian Malec (154,600), Alexandre Reard (88,100) and Ole Schemion (31,300) also soundly navigated their way through a stacked field.

Team PokerStars ambassador Fatima Moreira de Melo wasn't as fortunate as the aforementioned players as she'd be among those to run out of chips on Day 1b. Moreira de Melo wasn't the only notable to hit the rail: fellow PokerStars ambassador Ramon Colillas, Conor Beresford, Henri Buhler, Walter Treccarichi, Jason Wheeler, Morten Mortensen, Jasper Meijer van Putten, Parker Talbot, Kahle Burns, Julien Martini, and defending champion Paul Michaelis all joined the former Olympian on the sidelines after losing their stacks along the way as well.

Bizarre Bad Beat: Backdoor Quads Defeats Flopped Full House

There was plenty to be excited about on Day 1b of the Main Event, with swingy stacks across the board as well as players getting accused of stealing chips. However, the craziest hand of the day no doubt occurred at Table 24, where three players got their stacks in the middle on a {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades} board. Action was innocuous until the river and for good reason, as all players tried to trap one another by slowplaying their big hands.

Holding pocket sevens, Florian Ribouchon was the first to come out of the woodworks and bet the river with his flopped top full house. Antoine Vranken, with the six-four of hearts for sixes full, then raised it up one seat over. Lukasz Grossmann, however, held pocket fives for the miracle runner-runner quads and shoved all in over the top. Both Ribouchon and Vranken got their stacks in the middle as well, after which the entire table frantically whipped out their phones to film the improbable showdown that just unfolded before their eyes.

With both starting days wrapped up, the 268 surviving players from Day 1b will join the 127 that made it through on Day 1a and come back for Day 2 at noon local time on Friday, December 13. Make sure to check back to PokerNews as we get one step closer to crowning a new EPT champion!

Play Ended

Level 10 : 600/1,200, 1,200 ante

Play has ended with 745 entries showing on the clock and 280 remaining players.

The chip counts, the Day 2 seat draw, and a recap of today's action are to follow.

''He is Stealing From Me. This is Theft!''

Level 10 : 600/1,200, 1,200 ante
Gregory Armand
Gregory Armand

A hand was playing out on Table 12 but that is not what drew everyone's attention to the table. It was Gregory Armand, who claimed Giuseppe Zarbo accepted a pot that he didn't win, which Armand was supposed to win. Said hand happened two hands ago and in the meantime, the table lost Adam Chochola and Benjamin Chalot. Chalot immediately reentered but Chochola stayed at the table to witness it all.

Multiple members of the floor staff arrived at the table to assess the situation. Armand claimed he was supposed to win the pot with {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs} against the {3-Hearts}{2-Hearts} of Zarbo with only a deuce on the board. Armand's kicker should've earned him the pot but the chips were pushed to Zarbo.

Armand, meanwhile, had gotten to his feet to greet someone on the rail safe in the knowledge - he assumed - that he had won the pot.

Upon returning to the table, he counted his chips and realized that he had not been awarded the pot. Armand insisted on the floor staff checking the cameras above the table and went off against his opponent.

''He knows he lost and he took the pot!" he shouted. "He stole from me, he's a thief!''

Tournament director Toby Stone explained to Armand that it wasn't possible to check the cameras because it would take too long. Stone also explained he was trying everything in his power to see if they could find a solution.

Armand stepped aside from the table when Stone was trying to confirm what happened with the other players at the table. The general consensus was that Armand indeed should've won the pot and that Zarbo had put the 14,000-18,000 in his own stack.

It took about ten minutes before Zarbo gave 16,000 to Armand. Armand was happy with the solution and play continued at Table 12 with 35 minutes left on the clock before the end of the day.

James Akenhead

Viktor Katzenberger was all in for 59,100 preflop with {10-Hearts}{10-Spades} and doubled through his opponent with {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} on a {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}.

James Akenhead was less successful in the race: he saw his pocket sixes drop to Aleksandras Voisnis his {a-Spades}{10-Spades} when a ten popped on this flop as well.
