The 2021 WSOP International Circuit Rozvadov €1,700 Main Event is one step closer to crowning a champion. Out of a field of 912 entries, only 81 players remain in the mix for the biggest slice of the €1,342,920 prize pool. The money bubble burst in the final level of the night and two dozen contenders then headed to the rail before the chips were bagged and tagged.

Ahmad Achegsei soared into a big lead with a stack of 2,752,000 while his nearest follower Andrea Radicchi is more than 1.1 million in chips behind. The overnight top ten also includes recent WSOP bracelet winner Armando D'Avanzo, Emil Bise, and Szymon Wysocki.

Another name that will certainly ring a bell is two-time WSOP bracelet winner Martin Kabrhel. He entered and re-entered within the first two hours of the day and turned a very short stack into 788,000.

The late registration on Day 2 remained open for the first two levels and following break. Dozens of players joined the fray as the field was boosted from 763 to 912 entries, which ensured that the top 95 finishers would get paid. With such an influx of new entries, it took until the final level of the night to burst the money bubble. Romania's Ciprian Paunescu lost a flip with queens against the ace-king of Alexey Mishuk to become the last player to leave empty-handed.

During the early stages, Armando D'Avanzo jumped into the lead when he knocked out Dutchman Rolf Van Brug and remained near the top of the leaderboard for most of the day. Other big stacks were not as successful and came up shy of the money such as Nicola Angelini, Kevin Lemmens, Andrzej Jedryczka, and Flaviano Cammisuli,

Notables outside of the money also included Pascal Vos, Tobias Peters, Vivian Saliba, Pascal Vos, Ivo Donev, Eyal Bensimhon, King's regular Yehoda Cohen, Josef Gulas, and Aleksandar Tomovic. Once the bubble had burst, the field lost more than one dozen players in the money and Ahmad Achegsei jumped into the role of big chip leader after earning several bigger pots in quick succession. Among others, he knocked out Pascal Pflock with aces versus ace-king in a preflop contest.

The remaining 81 hopefuls will return to Europe's biggest poker arena on Monday, September 13 at 2pm local time. Returning blinds will be 8,000-16,000 with a big blind ante of 16,000. The penultimate tournament day will very likely aim to play down to the nine-handed final table. Stay tuned to find out who will make the cut then as the PokerNews team will be on site to provide as many of the key hands as possible.

Pascal Pflock
Pascal Pflock

Ahmad Achegsei opened to 40,000 and then instantly called the shove by Pascal Pflock for around 420,000, which Achegsei snap-called.

Pascal Pflock: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Ahmad Achegsei: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

The {j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades} runout left Pflock drawing dead on the turn and the massive stack of Achegsei grew even bigger.

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

The clock has been stopped and they will be playing another five hands. A search for the potential chip leader likely won't be needed as Ahmad Achegsei has vaulted to a massive stack.

Dang Busts Pansier

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante

Van Hoa Dang check-raised the {8-Spades}{5-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} turn and Nino Junior Pansier was in the tank. The Dutchman eventually called with pocket sevens but needed help to avoid the elimination. Dang had the {7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for the made straight and the {3-Clubs} river sent Pansier out in 90th place.
