Somehow this event made it to the money on day one. All the remaining 36 players (from 339 starters) are guaranteed a minimum of €2,616. Nicolas Fierro is the clear chip leader on 131,700 but he's being chased by a very talented group of players that include Rifat Palevic (83,500), Salman Behbehani (79,600), Victor Ramdin (77,200) and Jon Spinks (76,800) to name but a few.
The plan for today is to play down to a final table of six. Play will be six-handed all day until we reach the final seven players. They will combine on one table of seven until we lose our last player. Play is due to start shortly at 3pm.
