€1,700 Main Event

Welcome to Day 2 of the 2022 WSOP International Circuit €1,700 Main Event at King's Resort

Poker Arena at King's Resort

The Spring Edition of the 2022 WSOP International Circuit at the King's Resort in Rozvadov is gearing up for the conclusion of the series. Only three days remain and two of the coveted WSOP Circuit gold rings are still up for grabs. One of them will be awarded tonight as the €1,000 Bounty Hunter Event plays all the way down to a winner.

However, all eyes in Europe's biggest poker room are set on the marquee €1,700 Main Event with its enormous €1,000,000 guarantee. While the previous two editions in September 2021 and January 2022 breezed past the seven-figure amount, there is a potential overlay on the horizon this time. So far, the first two starting days attracted a field of 553 entries of which 194 players bagged up chips.

Some 645 entries are required to cover the guarantee and 20 of them will join the fray via the satellites. All those wishing to take a shot at the action can enter during the first two 60-minute levels and following 30-minute break. Recommencing blinds will be 1,000-2,000 with a big blind ante of 2,000 during the final stages of the registration period, in which players can also use a maximum of two re-entries as well.

Leading the field into Day 2 is Birger Ohl with 497,100 in chips followed by Tibor Nagygyörgy, who has 479,100 at his disposal. Other notables in the overnight top ten are Pierre Trauer (413,000), €2,200 High Roller ring event winner Fausto Tantillo (336,900) and Vincent De Neve (329,000).

A total of ten levels of 60 minutes each are scheduled for Day 2 and the late registration period will end at around 4.30 pm local time. Once the overall field size is set, the live stream action on the King's Resort Twitch and YouTube channels will get underway as well.

It is expected that today's poker action will get close to and potentially burst the money bubble while Day 3 then plays all the way down to the official final table. The PokerNews team will be on the floor to provide as many key hands as possible en route to crowning the champion in Rozvadov.
