Day 1A of the $25,500 Super High Roller Championship in the partypoker WPT World Online Championships is done and dusted. Eighty-eight of the world's best players bought in and only 11 of them survived the first flight.

Nobody bagged up more chips than Pascal Hartmann who turned his 100,000 starting stack into a colossal 1,964,082 chips over the course of 18 levels.

Hartmann is a superb poker player and one who has put in several deep runs during the WPTWOC series. He's not managed to take down a Championship Event yet, bit this incredible start has done his chances of glory no harm at all.

Team partypoker's Mikita Badziakouski is Hartmann's closest rival when it comes to number of chips. Badziakouski bagged up 1,250,461 and was one of only three players to finish Day 1A with a seven-figure stack. German superstar Ole Schemion (1,103,933) was the other.

The Day 1A field was stacked, as you'd expect from such a big buy-in event. Kahle Burns (969,133) has started the tournament well while the likes of Stephen Chidwick (666,999), and recent WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Dvoress (492,621) also progressed.

Jan Arends finished the opening flight with 146,456 chips and has a lot of work to do then Day 2 commences at 8:05 p.m. CEST on September 21.

With only 11 players progressing, it meant 77 players crashed and burned on Day 1A. They can all take a second bite at the cherry at 8:05 p.m. CEST on September 20 should they wish to part company with $25,500.

Expect to see such luminaries as Justin Bonomo, Adrian Mateos, Linus Loeliger, Steve O'Dwyer, David Peters, Niklas Astedt, and Team partypoker pros Dzmitry Urbanovich, Isaac Haxton, and Jason Koon all take another shot.
