Toma Finishes as Chip Leader, Team PokerStars Has a Good Day 1b

Day 1b of PokerStars Championship Prague €5,300 Main Event wrapped up with a tightly bunched group packed at the top of the chip counts.

Nobody could quite catch Tsugunari Toma, who finished up with 181,600 to give him a narrow lead among the 331 players who bagged.

Toma, who hails from Japan, was one of the lesser-known players who participated in the €50,000 Super High Roller right here in Prague just days ago. While he failed to log a cash in that particular event, he does have over $450,000 in tournament earnings and that high-level experience could serve him well in the Main Event.

Others bagging big included Xixiang Luo (174,900) and Matas Cimbolas (171,500).

Cimbolas, a Lithuanian player, put together a profitable run to seventh place here last year at EPT Prague in the €10,300 High Roller. He navigated to seventh place for €134,287. He's also coming off of a big stateside score, as he just took second in a major event in Florida for $262,440.

What's more, Cimbolas bagged second in the EPT Prague Main Event Day 1b last year as well, going on to a 42nd-place finish.

Luo put together a strong showing in PokerStars Championship Macau earlier this year, collecting two trophies and advancing to two more final tables.

It was also a good day for Team PokerStars, as Pros Marcin Horecki (110,400), Igor Kurganov (100,000), Fatima Moreira de Melo (72,400), Jake Cody (66,400), Liv Boeree (27,200) and Felipe Ramos (16,900) all advanced, as did Friend of PokerStars Maria Konnikova (46,200).

The 655 entries on Day 1b combine with the Day 1a runners to form a total field of 848 with registration still remaining open until the start of Day 2, which will help accommodate some of the high rollers who were busy with the €25K Single-Day on Wednesday. Many filtered into the Main during the latter stages of Day 1b.

The unofficial defending champ — since he won this event last year under the EPT banner — also showed up and put together a hot start. Jasper Meijer van Putten drew an interesting seat assignment next to Marton Czuczor, whom he conquered heads up last year. Meijer van Putten got up past 70,000 but ultimately put 49,200 in the bag.

Players eliminated during Day 1b play included Max Silver, Kenny Hallaert, Antoine Saout and Will Kassouf.

Everyone who found a bag will meet up at noon on Thursday for Day 2. Come back PokerNews for more live coverage then.

The Five Is Not Coming for Panovec

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Daniel Barriocanal raised from early position and called the shove of short stack Michael Panovec on the button for what appeared to be 13,000.

Panovec was at risk with {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} versus {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} and said "the five is coming" while standing up from his seat. However, the board ran out {Q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and that was it for Panovec.

Horecki Chips Up Through Sinclair

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Joining the action on the {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{K-Clubs} turn, Marcin Horecki in the cutoff checked and Jack Sinclair on the button bet 7,000. The PokerStars Team Pro called and checked again the {5-Diamonds} on the river. Sinclair bet 16,000 and Horecki called to see the 2017 November Niner turn over {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for queens and jacks.

Horecki had that beat with {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for the better two pair and scooped a nice pot.
