Just before the break, Andras Nemeth opened for 126,000 from the cutoff. Rodrigo Sirichuk jammed from the button for 519,290 and Nemeth called.
The board improved Nemeth to top pair and Sirichuk was eliminated in 21st place for $7,839.
Players are on their final break of the day. There will be two minutes left on the clock when the action resumes before the remaining players virtually bag their stacks.
Andrii Novak open-jammed for more than 15 big blinds with big slick and bricked the board after "Jabochi" called with eights to go out in 25th place.
The table quickly closed as the action was down to just three tables.
Shortly after, Andras Nemeth opened for 126,000 from under the gun. Dominykas Mikolaitis three-bet shoved for 956,510 and Nemeth called.
The board didn't connect with big slick and Mikolaitis was eliminated in 24th place.
Gleb Tremzin lost most of his stack when his jacks didn't hold against the fours held by "yiliuqi" and was down to just three big blinds.
This went in as well from the big blind after he called a jam by Roman Hrabec from the button.
The board wasn't enough to save Tremzin and he was eliminated in 26th place.
The last two blind levels have witnessed hands moving slower than the rest of the event with many players opting to use their full time banks.
Joao Simao leads heading into Level 32. Day 1 will conclude after this blind level with players coming back tomorrow at 7 p.m. CEST (1 p.m. ET) to play down to a winner.
