Day 1b Completed
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.
Top 10 in Chips for Day 1b
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.
