Day 2 Completed
The second day of the PokerStars.net Eureka Poker Tour Rozvadov Main Event saw 287 players return to the tables of King's Casino. More than half of them would leave the biggest poker room in Europe empty-handed, as only the top 103 spots were paid at least €1,800. After eight levels — four of 45 minutes and four of 60 minutes — the field had been cut down to just 63.
Daniel Rose finished with a commanding lead. His 1.57 million in chips was far ahead of Martin Ilavsky's 841,000 and David Urban's 837,000, while Argentinian sensation Ivan "Negriin" Luca follows in fourth with 708,000.
Other big stacks and notables included Jonas Lauck (614,000), Karol Radomski (463,000), Peter Siemund (436,000), Robert Kokoska (398,000), Hannes Speiser (326,000), Amir Mozaffarian (308,000), Grzegorz Wyraz (249,000), and Dominik Paus (198,000).
Maria Lampropoulos (119,000) advanced as the last woman standing, and former European Poker Tour Vienna champion Michael Eiler bagged up a short stack of 17,000.
The day started fast and furious with 90 players being sent to the rail in the first 90 minutes. Among those to bust early were Michal Polchlopek, Dag Palovic, Roman Cieslik, Marius Pospiech, Harald Casagrande, Yehuda Cohen, and start-of-the-day chip leader Quentin Dellis.
Frantisek B bluffed away his stack in a big pot against Martin Kabrhel, and Josef Pavelka exited just shy of the money when his kings got cracked by the pocket jacks of Petr Machacek.
The bubble burst one hand before the dinner break thanks to two all-in situations. Martin Guth moved all in with pocket jacks for 10 big blinds from the button and Radomski found an ace with the . Elsewhere, Wyraz three-bet jammed with the from the button and Day 1c chip leader Arsenii Karmatckii called from the small blind with the . An ace on the flop put the Pole in desperate shape, but he turned a straight and doubled to crown Guth as the sole "bubble boy."
After the dinner break, two dozen players exited within quick succession, including Martin Mulsow (91st) and Oliver Heidel (95th). Heidel lost all his chips within three hands to Paus.
Other notables in the money were Danilo Velasevic (99th), Feryat Toprakli (81st), Roland Gerga (74th), and Thomas Pedersen (67th).
Rose skyrocketed into the top spot in back-to-back hands towards the end of the day. He first flopped a straight in a three-way pot to bust Boris Andreev. Then, Rose won a big pot with a set of eights against Mateusz Martewicz, who had a combo draw and missed.
Day 3 will resume on Monday at 2 p.m. local time with Level 19 and blinds of 5,000/10,000 and a running ante of 1,000. The goal of the penultimate Main Event day is to reach the final table of six. Follow all the key hands right here on PokerNews to see who makes it into the spotlight on Tuesday.
