The 2012 World Series of Poker Europe Event #2: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'em continued on Sunday as 331 players turned out for Day 1b, the second of two starting flights. In just over nine levels of play, that number was reduced to just 53 with Marvin Rettenmaier and his stack of 69,950 leading the way.

Combined with Day 1a’s 295 players, Event #2 drew a total of 626 entries and created a prize pool of €600,960, which will be distributed to the top 63 with €126,207 reserved for the winner. Tomorrow, the remaining 98 players from both starting flights will combined under the same roof for Day 2 action.

Back on Day 1a, Rettenmaier late registered for the tournament but didn't have much luck as he busted fairly quickly. He took advantage of the re-entry format and fired a second bullet, which proved to be a wise decision. In a hand earlier today, the board read {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} when an unknown player had checked from early position and Rettenmaier took the opportunity to move all in. His opponent only had 1,550 behind and tank-called only to discover his {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} was no good against the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} of Rettenmaier. It wasn’t a huge pot, but it was reminiscent of how the German ran throughout the day.

Unfortunately not everyone was as fortunate as Rettenmaier. Andy Frankenberger, Chance Kornuth, Oliver Speidel, Vanessa Selbst and Michael Mizrachi were just a few of the players who re-entered and fell short for a second time. They were joined by Day 1b newbies Jennifer Tilly, David “ODB” Baker, Phil Hellmuth, Charlotte Van Brabander, Roland Israelashivili, Dan Shak and Brandon Cantu, just to name a few.

With that said, a few re-entries did make the most of their second chance including Dominik Nitsche, Joe Kuether, Tristan Wade, Erik Cajelais and John Monnette, all of whom finished toward the top of the Day 1b chip counts. They, along with John Tababtabia, Roger Hairabedian, Jean Paul Pasqualini, Bourcier de Carbon, and Gil George, will join the likes of Day 1a’s Antonio Esfandiari, Mclean Karr and Antonin Teisseire on Monday for Day 2 action.
