Today is a big day at the Master Classics of Poker in Holland Casino Amsterdam. One of the longest-running poker tournament series in the world will crown another champion today. Day 2 of the €1,600 Progressive Bounty is the money-day, the day the money will be reached, and will play down to a winner after that.
Starting out on top is Spel Sah Hwan, having turned his 20,000 starting stack into a chip empire worth 244,000. MCOP side event winner Doug Roberts (239,800) and Wim Anne Wesselink (215,700) follow close behind.
A total of 27 players return to action today with 17 players walking away at least €2,796 richer than they started the day. But there's not just value in cashing; knocking people out can be quite lucrative as well. With this tournament being a progressive bounty, people get worth more the more people they knock out. When the final table is reached, most people will have a bounty of multiple thousands of euros on their head. It's an exciting format, not often played live.
PokerNews will be here from start to finish, let's see who can take down the inaugural MCOP Progressive Bounty event!
