The €1 million guarantee in the 2021 WSOP International Circuit €1,700 Main Event at the King's Resort in Rozvadov has already been surpassed thanks to a strong turnout on the second starting day. There were a total of 409 entries to bring the overall field to 763 entries and 157 hopefuls punched their ticket through Day 1b.

Poker players from Italy dominate the overnight leaderboard as they make up for six of the top ten in chips. Flaviano Cammisuli emerged as the new overall chip leader with 411,000 by some margin. Florian Kraft follows in second place with 369,000 and Alexey Mishuk (338,500) completes the podium. Among the notable big stacks are also Nicola Angelini, Francesco Delfoco, and Roberto Manfredi.

Just outside of the top 10 is Armando D'Avanzo with a stack of 264,500. The Malta-based Italian recently won his maiden WSOP gold bracelet in Event #22: $400 COLOSSUS on GGPoker. He is followed by fellow bracelet winner Vangelis Kaimakamis, Christophe Panetti, Yehuda Cohen, and Andrei Nodea.

After the completion of both starting days, there are 281 players out of 763 entries remaining. The prize pool thus far has reached €1,123,517 but will certainly rise further as the late registration is open for another two levels and following break on Day 2. Action is set to resume on Sunday, September 12, at 2pm local time in Europe's biggest poker arena.

The poker action was fuelled from the get-go as more than 110 players were seated in the first level of the day. A memorable early hand saw Duc Quy Nguyen river quads and Yann Lormel only check-called with the top full house. Right before the dinner break, Roberto Manfredi won a big three-way all-in to take the early lead. The perhaps most spectacular hand of the day then unfolded mid-way through the day. King's regular and massage parlour owner Yehuda Cohen won the biggest slice of a four-way all-in when his set improved to a full house.

In the late stages of the day, Flaviano Cammilusi dominated at the top of the leaderboard and knocked out Roman Cieslik and Rastislav Paleta to take the overall lead. Other big names that fell throughout the day were Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Francesco Candelari, Claudio Di Giacomo, Thomer Pidun, and Georgios Vrakas.

They can all return back to the action on Day 2, which commences with blinds of 1,000-2,000 and a big blind ante of 2,000, giving new entries and re-entries 25 big blinds and a dream. Day 2 will play eight levels of 60 minutes each and the action will also be streamed on the King's Resort Twitch channel once the registration has closed.

Stay tuned right here on PokerNews to find out who claims the WSOP Circuit ring on September 14, as the live reporting team will provide all the action until the end.

Shuh Felted by Bechor

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

Michal Schuh got the last bit of his short stack in with the {k-Spades}{7-Spades}. He was called by Yishay Bechor who turned over the {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}.

The board ran out {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades} and that spelled the end for Schuh.

The Final Hands of the Night

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The clocks have been stopped with 165 players out of 409 entries remaining. They will play another four hands and then race off the T-100 chips before bagging and tagging.

Kraft Chips Up Even Further

zedmaster84 • Level 9: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

"This guy is just running so hot," Alessandro Laubinger sighed after he paid off 15,500 on the {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades} river. Kraft tabled {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} for nines full and Laubinger mucked a six.

Cieslik Busts to Cammisuli

Roman Cieslik
Roman Cieslik

Roman Cieslik and Flaviano Cammisuli were involved in a three-bet pot in a battle of the blinds with the former limp-raising to 17,000 and earning a call by his table neighbor. Cieslik bet the {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades} flop for 15,000 to earn a call and fired another {3-Clubs} turn for another 27,000. Cammisuli called once more and Cieslik then bet the {7-Hearts} river for 30,000 with around 13,000 behind.

Cammisuli moved all-in and Cieslik snap-called. He was shown the {9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} for trips sevens and slammed down his cards in disgust, then exposed the {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}.
