Day 2 Completed
Day 2 Completed
The 2022 WSOP International Circuit Rozvadov €1,700 Main Event is one step closer to crowning a champion at the King's Resort in Rozvadov. Only 59 players out of 808 total entries remain in contention after an eventful Day 2 and they have all locked up a portion of the €1,189,780 prize pool. Besides their cash prizes, the top 12 finishers will also receive an entry for the 2022 WSOP Europe €10,300 Main Event as well.
Best-positioned to battle for the coveted WSOP Circuit gold ring is Dutchman Mahersh Selvakumaran with a massive stack of 2,507,000. He ran hot towards the second half of the day and was also responsible for bursting the money bubble. In somewhat remarkable fashion, Enrico Campanile was the last to leave empty-handed after suffering the same fate in the 2021 WSOPE Main Event at King's Resort as well.
Second in chips is Ronnie Lemmens with 1,912,000 and another six players claimed a seven-figure stack to their name. This includes Simone Andrian, who won his maiden WSOP gold bracelet at King's during the 2021 WSOPE festival. Andrian was at risk with kings versus aces on the direct money bubble but survived and subsequently spun it up to 1,703,000.

Notables with decent stacks sizes for Day 3 include Simone Miracoli, Aleksandar Tomovic, Josef Gulas, Claudio Di Giacomo, and Marius Gicovanu. Five WSOP bracelet winners are also still in the mix. Besides the big stack Andrian and Albert Hoekendijk, this also includes Dalibor Dula, Alessandro Pichierri and Sergiu Covrig.
The last player to leave without anything to show for was once more Italy's Enrico Campanile. For the second major tournament at King's Resort in a row, he departed the poker arena as the bubble boy after running ace-queen suited into pocket aces while holding an average stack.
Among the players that cashed but ran out of chips in the frantic final stages at the end of the night were notables such as Aleksandar Trajkovski, Michael Strauch, Jan Bendik, Raoul Refos, Ion Tabacaru, Mark Bongaerts and Mark Helou. All 59 survivors have €3,730 locked up for their efforts and the next pay jump is already in sight as of 55th place, which comes with a prize worth €4,156.
The returning blinds for Day 3 as of 2pm local time will be 8,000-16,000 with a big blind ante of 16,000 and the penultimate tournament day will whittle down the field to the official final table. All levels will continue to last 60 minutes each and the action will be broadcasted on the King's Resort Twitch channel for the remainder of the tournament. As usual, the PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor as well to provide as many key hands as possible.

Fewer than 60 players have bagged up chips as a few further contenders departed from the three feature tables.
Full chip counts and a recap of the action are to follow.
Matteo Cirillo had previously moved all-in to force a fold from Gordon Hegner and leaped well above one million in chips.
Shortly after, he took on Luc Ta in a preflop contest and both players flipped over pocket pairs.
The deuces found no help on the board and Ta became one of the last casualties on Day 2.
Only 64 players remain as the final hands of the night are currently ongoing.
The clocks have been stopped with 65 players and they will play a maximum of five hands until bagging and tagging.
Mark Bongaerts faced a raise to 27,000 by Laviniu David followed by the calls of Simone Andrian and Gheorghe Butuc. The Dutchman then jammed for 270,000 and Andrian called, the other two opponents folded.
The [Qh8d5] flop vaulted Andrian into the lead while Bongaerts picked up a gutshot on the turn. However, the river was a blank and Bongaerts was eliminated.
