After 10 levels of play from a massive star-studded field, Robert Cowen (285,100) holds the Day 1 chip lead in the €10,300 EPT High Roller with Kenny Hallaert (258,400), Adrian Mateos (254,400), and Chris Brewer (230,800) among those not far behind.
The 246 Day 1 entries have already created a prize pool of €2,386,200, which will grow further on Tuesday with late registration open until the start of Day 2. 15% of the final field will make the money.

With so many big names in the field, not every star could bring a big stack forward into Day 2. WSOP Main Event champ Koray Aldemir (22,400) and Stephen Chidwick (16,800) battled at the same table most of the day with neither being able to grab any traction, while others such as PokerStars Ambassadors and EPT Prague winners Sam Grafton and "Papo MC" Alejandro Lococo were unable to make it to the end of the night.

High Rollers Galore

While €25,000 High Roller I champion Teun Mulder makes a run at the EPT Main Event title, the other High Roller champions from this year’s festival that entered Monday’s field had limited success. €2,200 Eureka High Roller champ Jose Manuel Gonzalez was eliminated midway through the day, €25,000 EPT High Roller II champ Andras Nemeth busted later in the day, while €25,000 EPT High Roller IV champ Rodrigo Selouan was also eliminated after being victimized by a stubborn pair of nines held by Alexander Glogar.
€50,000 Super High Roller winner Timothy Adams (55,600) however survived the day with a bit more than starting stack.

Day 1 Highlights

In one of the wilder hands of the day, William Kassouf found himself on the right end of a two pair versus two pair all-in battle, only for his opponent to fill up on the river.

Earlier in the day, while stacks were still very deep, Nemeth and Merijn Van Rooij each put in nearly a full starting stack preflop in a massive pot that resulted in an early double up for van Rooij, who final tabled the €1,100 Eureka Main Event earlier in the festival.

Day 2 Tuesday

Play will resume at 12:30 pm CET at the King’s Casino at the Hilton Prague, with action starting at Level 11 with blinds of 800 / 1,600 with a 1,600 big blind ante.
Day 2 is scheduled to play to down to a final table, but with 122 players remaining and some more sure to max late-reg, that could potentially be in flux.
Stay tuned to PokerNews for all the latest from this and every major event at the PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague.

Darie Ends Kabrhel's Day Late

Martin Kabrhel
Martin Kabrhel

With a sizable pot already built by the river, Martin Kabrhel faced a bet for his last 50,000 or so chips from Vlad Darie.

The board read {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{j-Spades}, and after a couple of minutes of thought, Kabrhel dropped a stack of chips forward to call.

Darie showed him {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for a turned set of fives. Kabrhel mucked his hand, pushed forward the rest of his chips and left the tournament area.

Six More Hands

MikePatrick • Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

The tournament staff has announced that six more hands will be played before the end of the night.

Wozniak Doubles Through Hecklen

MikePatrick • Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Mateusz Wozniak and Henrik Hecklen traded preflop raises until Wozniak's roughly 65,000 chip stack was all-in and at risk, but he had the best situation he could ask for.

Mateusz Wozniak: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}
Henrik Hecklen: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}

The board came {8-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}, securing a double up late in the day for Wozniak, while taking a big chunk out of Hecklen's stack that he had built so well throughout the day.

Bartos Takes Chips from Chidwick

MikePatrick • Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

In a three-bet pot with 14,000 in the pot after preflop action, Gergely Bartos checked a {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} flop to Stephen Chidwick who bet 4,500.

Bartos called to see the {a-Diamonds} fall on the turn and checked again. This time Chidwick bet 7,000 and again Bartos called.

On the {9-Hearts} river, Bartos checked a final time, and this time Chidwick checked back.

Bartos showed {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for a turned straight, and Chidwick tossed his cards into the muck.
