€5,300 EPT Main Event

Welcome to Day 1b of the €5,300 EPT Prague Main Event


The 2021 PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague €5,300 Main Event has been off to a blistering start with 418 entries, which surpassed the Day 1a field of the previous live edition of the popular flagship event in the Czech capital. However, a far bigger field is expected for Day 1b, which is set to kick off at noon local time in the King's Casino at the Hilton Hotel Prague.

Record-breaking fields in the €1,100 Eureka Main Event and €2,200 High Roller may very well indicate that the crown jewel of the festival will also result in an excellent turnout as well. The last EPT Prague Main Event reeled in a field of 1,154 entries and Mikalai Pobal was crowned the winner, becoming the second-ever two-time champion in EPT history. While Pobal hasn't been spotted during the series so far, other former winners such as Hossein Ensan, Kalidou Sow, Davidi Kitai, Jasper Meijer Van Putten, Piotr Nurzynski, and Ognyan Dimov are expected to take another shot at glory on Day 1b.

Jack Sinclair (317,900) and Sharon Sade (312,200) set the pace on Day 1a by increasing their starting stack more than ten fold and it remains to be seen if a new overall chip leader will be crowned on the second and final starting day.

All participants receive 30,000 in chips and will aim to make it all the way through the scheduled ten 60-minute levels. A total of two entries across both Day 1s and until the start of Day 2 are allowed for those who run out of chips. There will be a break every two levels and a 75-minute dinner break after the end of level six, while bagging and tagging takes place around midnight local time in Prague.

The very same day will also see the conclusion of the €50,000 Super High Roller and the €2,200 Eureka High Roller while another edition of the €25,000 Single-Day High Roller is scheduled to take place. All of these marquee events will be covered by the PokerNews live reporting team during an exciting day of live poker action from the Czech Republic.
