Anatoly Filatov Bags Big on Day 1b

The second of three starting days of the 2017 partypoker LIVE German Poker Championship €2.200 Main Event is in the books. A total of 170 players had qualified with stacks via the online satellites on partypoker and the live satellites in the King's Casino in Rozvadov, and a further 126 direct buy-ins were added throughout the eight levels of one hour each to create a field of 296 entries.

Only 167 players bagged up chips and all those that failed to do so have two further chances to join the action. As of 12 p.m. local time the turbo heat Day 1c with levels of 20 minutes kicks off and Day 2 of the Main Event restarts at 3 p.m. local time. A single re-entry can be fired for both and the registration for 1c remains open for the entire duration, while all players can also re-enter once throughout the first four levels of Day 2.

Leading the field of Day 1b survivors is Viktor Langlitz, who also came into the day with the biggest stack. Langlitz coolered several opponents on the way to bag up an impressive 8,058,000 while partypoker sponsored pro and €5,300 High Roller champion Anatoly Filatov made it through with 5,500,000, Sonay Kehya rounds up the top three with 4,667,000. Marcel Luske had to fire a second bullet after running dry in the first three levels and carried over 2,109,000.

Other big stacks and notables include Alamzad Sina (3,996,000), Miroslav Lelek (3,703,000), Jan Mach (3,666,000), Kacper Pyzara (2,977,000), Jesper Hansen (2,913,000), Marek Blasko (2,899,000), Ondrej Mar (2,858,000), Marko Simic (2,470,000), Hossein Ensan (2,200,000), Paul Michaelis (1,969,000), and 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event 8th place finisher Jack Sinclair (1,377,000). Slovakia's Andrej Desset, who won back-to-back partypoker Grand Prix Main Events, advanced to Day 2 with 1,724,000 and his brother Dominik bagged up 910,000.

Some big names fell on Day 1b and that list includes Pierre Neuville, Sander van Wesemael, Martin Kabrhel, Andrew King and Moritz Dietrich. Neuville was on the wrong end of a straight-versus straight showdown while van Wesemael busted his first bullet quickly before taking a brutal beat on the second entry. Eventual chip leader Langlitz got it in preflop against the Dutchman with ace-king suited versus aces, and instead of a gutshot on the flop he hit running clubs for a flush to bust van Wesemael.

Martin Kabrhel and his card and chip-protecting hippo joined in the second-last level of the night, and the Czech poker brat ran out of chips in the very last hand. Kabrhel was at risk with pocket eights and Sandro Pitzanti looked him up with ace-jack off suit to hit a royal flush in order to dispatch Kabrhel in style.

The tournament is on track to not only meet but exceed the guaranteed prize pool of €1,000,000. The two starting days at Europe's biggest poker arena attracted 360 entries so far, of which 203 already have chips for Day 2. On top of that, another 37 players qualified for Day 2 on partypoker to make it 240 survivors, and further ones will be added to the mix via Day 1c.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor to provide updates until the Main Event champion is crowned on Monday, August 14th 2017.

Kabrhel Busts to Pitzanti in Last Hand

Level 8 : 8,000/16,000, 16,000 ante

Sandro Pitzanti had won the penultimate hand of the night against Martin Kabrhel, prompting the Czech to jokingly call his opponent a bluffer.

The very last hand had Kabrhel all in and at risk for 450,000 with pocket eights and Pitzanti looked him up with {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}. The {K-Spades}{J-Spades}{10-Spades} flop improved Pitzanti, and he sent Kabrhel out in style when the {Q-Spades} turn gave the Dutchman a royal flush. An absolutely meaningless {3-Spades} river officially ended the hand and Kabrhel immediately asked for a rebuy, which he will have to do for Day 2 or in the turbo heat 1c.

Late Gift for Brüll

Level 8 : 8,000/16,000, 16,000 ante

In the last hand of the night on his table, a player moved all in for 795,000 and Christoph Brüll was in the cutoff, asked for a count, before moving all in for slightly more. The Austrian was hoping for more action behind, but ultimately they went heads up into showdown.

The player at risk showed {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Brüll had the {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}, the board came {K-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{K-Spades} and Brüll near-doubled his stack.

Harrouchy and Kehya Rising

Level 8 : 8,000/16,000, 16,000 ante

On the three-way turn showing {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}, the small blind bet 60,000 and Sonay Kehya in the big blind raised it up to 135,000. Ivo Donev in late position folded and the small blind called with exactly 301,000 behind. He checked after the {A-Spades} fell on the river and Kehya bet as much to give the small blind the option to fold or call all in.

There was no call, and instead Kehya flashed {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} for a straight with the words "Nice flop. If you push the turn, I am calling you."

Another big stack is Mohamed Harrouchy on the table of chip leader Viktor Langlitz. The German took yet another break with his massive stack, allowing the others to get their share of the action. Harrouchy was in the big blind and part of a four-way flop of {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts} that was checked to Robin Hegele. The German bet 55,000 and Marcel Luske called, Harrouchy also came along.

After the {2-Spades} turn all three players checked before the {7-Hearts} fell on the river. Harrouchy bet 230,000 and forced two folds, flashing the {J-Clubs} while collecting the pot.

Big Flop For Bartos

Level 8 : 8,000/16,000, 16,000 ante

We joined the action on a {10-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop, with Gluseppe Vella moving all-in for 452,000 over Martin Bartos' flop bet. Bartos called instantly and the cards were on their backs.

It looked like Vella had been brutally set up with {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for top and bottom as Bartos turned over {k-Spades}{10-Hearts} for top two.

Vella picked up no help from the deck on an {a-Hearts} turn, {9-Spades} river runout, and Bartos doubled up with 20 minutes left on the clock.

The King is Dead, Andrew Is Deposed

Level 8 : 8,000/16,000, 16,000 ante

Andrew King was having a massage when he ended getting the last of his chips in from early position against Karmatckii Arsenii in the cut-off.

King: {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Arsenii: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Simperl Checks Out

Level 8 : 8,000/16,000, 16,000 ante

The chips of Wolfgang Simperl vanished and the Austrian, who had fired two bullets today, headed to the rail. According to Julian Thomas, he got it in with {K-}{Q-} for two pair against the pocket aces of Jan Mach. Unfortunately, that was on the turn when a three had paired the board, and the top two were no longer good for Simperl.

King got into a raising war with table neighbor Leo Schulz. The duo saw a flop of {10-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} and a check-raise from 135,000 to 350,000 was in front of King. Schulz reraised to 835,000 and King folded.
