Day 1b of the WSOP International Circuit Main Event has come to an end with 383 entries and 321 unique players reentering 62 times. Out of all those entries, 189 players have made it through to Day 2. Combined with the Day 1a survivors, this means that at least 287 players will return to the poker tables on Sunday, October 13, at 2 p.m. local time. In total there were 619 entries collected over the first two starting days in Europe’s biggest poker room at the King’s Resort.

As registration is still open for the first two levels of the day, more players are expected to join the field to battle it out for their share of the €1,103,500 guaranteed prize pool which included ten WSOPE Main Event Tickets. With 619 entries collected up till now, the guarantee has not been reached yet.

Taking the overnight chip lead is Daniel Dinulescu who surged in the later levels of the night especially when he sent the defending champion, Martin Kabrhel to the cashier to reenter. The young Romanian player reached the final table of the Monster Stack yesterday and finished in eighth place for €5,593 but is looking for an even better result here in the Main Event. He’s gotten off to a great start as his stack is also good enough to claim the overall chip lead as Arunas Jocius collected 384,700 in chips on Day 1a.

Going for second place in the chip counts is China’s Yan Li with 382,200. Li collected four cashes during the WSOP in Las Vegas this summer but has more than $800,000 in cashes in her lifetime career according to The Hendon Mob. Third in the chip counts is Argjent Bunjaku with 345,900. Compared to Li, Bunjaku has no tournament cashes recorded anywhere.

Other familiar names to have found a bag for Day 2 include the former champions Kabrhel and Emil Bise. Georgios Vrakas, Ankit Ahuja, Abdelhakim Zoufri, Vojtech Ruzicka, Jason Wheeler, Rafi Elharar, Muhamet Perati, Maria Lampropulos, Thai Ha, and Pierre Neuville are some of the exemplary players to return to the felt too.

Not everyone was that lucky though, but as the first two 40-minute levels remain open for late registration and reentry, players can still choose to try again on Day 2. A 20-minute break has been scheduled after those two levels so registration will officially close at 3:40 p.m. local time. Level duration will then be increased to 45 minutes each and play will continue until the money has been reached. A 40-minute dinner break has been scheduled after the fifth level of play and a 15-minute break (in case needed) will take place after the eighth level of play of the day.

Everyone who makes it through to Day 3 will get paid €3,500 immediately into their casino account and that money will be deducted from the prize pool. The rest will then be played for throughout Day 3 until a winner has been crowned. The PokerNews team will be on hand to bring you all the updates until the money has been reached on Day 2. So make sure to tune back in.

Play Ended

poolshir • Level 12: 700-1,400, 1,400 ante

The full chip counts, the Day 2 seat draw, and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Three More Hands

poolshir • Level 12: 700-1,400, 1,400 ante

The tournament clock has been paused and the remaining players need to play three more hands before they can bag and tag their chips for Day 2.

Carmona Doubles Through Bunjaku

poolshir • Level 12: 700-1,400, 1,400 ante

Argjent Bunjaku raised to 3,500 from the hijack and Marcos Carmona took some time in the cutoff before shoving. The rest of the table folded for action to be back on Bunjaku who asked for a count. The dealer confirmed Carmona had 19,200 behind. Bunjaku contemplated for a bit, cut out calling chips, and then made the call.

Marcos Carmona: {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Argjent Bunjaku: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

The flop came {7-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades} for Carmona to find a seven to pair up with.

The turn was the {6-Spades} which now gave Bunjaku some chop outs while an ace or jack would ensure Carmona's elimination.

The river completed the board with the {9-Spades} which didn't change things as Carmona doubled up.
