The final day which is Day 2 of the €2,750 High Roller is here and starts at 1 p.m. local time in Holland Casino Rotterdam during the World Series of Poker International Circuit. The action will kick off with at least 21 players in their seats as they survived an at times chaotic Day 1 which attracted 57 entries in total. But registration and reentry is still possible for the first two 40-minute levels of the day.
David Hu will be coming in fresh from a good night’s sleep as the chip leader with 316,500 in chips which is worth 106 big blinds. Hu is followed closely by Gary Hasson with 300,600 as the only players who have bagged over the 300,000-mark. The defending champion, Luuk Gieles is still in it to try and win back-to-back titles as he will start the day with 98,400 in chips after getting short at one point during Day 1.
Players who decide to enter late will get a stack worth only 17 big blinds. The tournament direction decided to restart with the last level of Day 1 with blinds at 1,500/3,000 and a 3,000 big blind ante. There might be some players willing to take a quick shot at it before jumping into the Main Event which starts at 2 p.m. local time. The structure of the tournament was changed during the first level of Day 1 as the players wanted more play on the first day so things would go faster on the final day.
This would also provide players a chance to jump into the Main Event quicker on Day 2 after being eliminated. The start of Day 1c was also moved back for an hour to 10 p.m. local time for the players who would finish in the latest stages of the High Roller so they can still participate in the tournament which features a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000. But they will all have their sights set on taking down the High Roller first that comes with a WSOP Circuit Ring and a pretty first-place prize which will be confirmed once registration has officially been closed.
When the players return to the felt on Day 2, the seat draw will be done on the spot and they will restart with Level 14 which features a small blind of 1,500, big blind of 3,000, and a big blind ante of 3,000. A break will take place after every three levels with a 60-minute dinner break after the ninth level of play. Play will continue until a winner has been crowned so stick around as the PokerNews live reporting team will be right here to bring you all the action.
