Henning Wendlandt Sits In Second After Amazing Day

The second day of the 2016 WSOP Circuit €1,650 Main Event at King's Casino in Rozvadov saw 315 players return to the tables. An additional 49 late entrants registered at the start of Day 2, bumping the number of remaining players to 364 and the overall field to 851. The top 87 spots would finish in the money and share a portion of the €1,212,675 prize pool.

At the end of the day, it was Han Kuo of Germany who bagged the overall chip lead with 1,673,000. Kun is closely trailed by Henning Wendlandt (1,600,000), Oriol Fernandez (1,595,000) and Ivan Banic (1,366,000), who all rose to the top after an amazing day at the tables.

The day started off furiously, with 364 players trying to put themselves in a good position. Johnny Hansen became one of the first eliminations of the day, and was soon followed by the likes of Killian Kramer, Raoul Refos, Sofia Lövgren, Dominik Panka, Ondrej Vinklarek, Martin Staszko and defending champion Mateusz Dziebowski. All of them going home empty-handed.

Near the bubble, James Akenhead and Michal Mrakes were eliminated from the tournament. Akenhead shoved ace-king into ace-six but saw his opponent improve with a runner-runner flush. Mrakes held pocket queens against pocket eights, but an eight on the turn send him packing. Jan-Dirk Wieckenberg, eventually became the bubble. He was down to just a single big blind and forced all in with eight-four against pocket queens. He failed to improve and was the last player going home before the money.

After the money was reached, Han Kun quickly soared to the top by winning a large number of medium-sized pots. He ended the day in top position with 1,673,000, but a lot of great players are still in contention, including Alexander Lahkov (964,000), Jonas Lauck (267,000), Jan Bendik (240,000) and Ronald van de Linde (175,000).

However, Day 2 was without a doubt the day of Henning Wendlandt, who had been trending nothing but up. Up until the last level, long-time chipleader Wendlandt appeared to be invincible, dragging pot after pot. Wendlandt became the first player to cross the one million mark. Due to a late slump, the Austrian just missed out on the end-of-day chip lead and sits in second with 1,600,000.

Action will resume on Monday at 2 p.m. local time with Level 24 and blinds of 10,000/20,000 with a running ante of 3,000. All players have €4,729 locked up for their efforts, but their eyes are set on the coveted WSOP Circuit gold ring as well as the first place prize of €232,241.

Due to the many entrants, King's Casino and the WSOP have decided to add an extra day to the schedule. On Monday, the tournament will play down to the final 8, and the final table will be played out on Tuesday. The Live Reporting team will be on the floor to report all the action until a champion is crowned on Tuesday night.

Day 2 Ended

KaleGozer • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Day 2 is in the books. 47 players will continue on to the third day. An extensive recap, chip counts and seating will follow shortly.

Last Six Hands

KaleGozer • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

The clock has been paused with ten minutes remaining in the level. All the tables will play six more hands until play will be suspended for the night.

Oriol Fernandez Makes A Great Call

KaleGozer • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

In an already substantial pot, Oriol Fernandez and Christopher Juffinger arrived on the river on a board of {6-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Juffinger shoved all in for 187,000, which was around half the size of the pot.

Fernandez gave it some thought, then called it off holding just {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} for ace-king high. It was a great call, as Juffinger showed {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} for the lesser ace-high and was eliminated.

Not Just Win Win Win For Wendlandt

As the great philosopher DJ Khaled once said: "All I do is win win win, no matter what." It could have been a song about Henning Wendlandt's run in this tournament, as it has been nothing but up for the Austrian.

That is until moments ago, when Wendlandt finally had to concede some chips. With pocket tens, he got it all in on a flop of {9-}{7-}{5-} against Oliver Classen. Classen held {10-}{8-} for a straight draw and spiked a {6-} on the turn to double-up.

Shortly after, Wendlandt also doubled-up Ronald van de Linde's stack of six big blinds. Wendlandt could take the hit, but he's swinging 0 for 2 in the level so far.
