As hand for hand play continues with 30 remaining, Krasimir Yankov has picked up almost 300,000 from his Day 2 starting stack.

Most of that has come from Vahid Amirzahiri, his neighbor on his right.

On the first hand, three players saw the {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop and Yankov was the first to bet, making it 18,000 to go. Amirzahiri was the lone caller.

Both players checked the {2-Spades} on the turn and Amirzahiri checked the {4-Clubs} on the river. Yankov bet 75,000 and Amirzahiri called. Yankov showed {a-}{a-}{9-}{9-} for a full house and Amirzahiri mucked.

Amirzahiri took a little back when he bet the pot over a Yankov open to 20,000. One player called before Amirzahiri bet the pot and got no callers.

Yankov took a bit more from Amirzahiri when three players saw the limped {j-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} flop. Amirzahiri called a 28,000 bet from Yankov and the two were heads up again. The turn was the {a-Diamonds} and both players checked. Amirzahiri bet the pot on the river when the {4-Spades} hit and Yankov called.

Amirzahiri showed {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for a set of sevens, which was no good against the {10-Spades}{j-Spades}{j-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} of Yankov. Yankov made a flush even after flopping a higher set.

All In and a Double

mnuwwarah • Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Dario Alioto opened for 12,000 second to act and then tank-called the shove of Christian Rachel, who had the button and just 36,000.

Rachel: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Alioto: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Rachel had the same hand as the last all-in and called player, but his double-suited aces made the nut flush on the {8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{9-Clubs} board.

Big Stacks Active Early

Brentharrington • Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Liran Twito opened to 18,000 and Erik Cajelais called. The flop came {8-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and Twito bet 23,000. Cajelais called. Both players checked when the {6-Diamonds} came on the turn and Twito led for 26,000 when the {a-Spades} hit the river. Cajelais took a moment, but eventually folded.

At a neighboring table, Pim van Holsteyn has been very aggressive early. He was under the gun and reached for chips.

"No need to look," a player said.

van Holsteyn smiled and raised to 21,000. He got one caller, but after he bet 40,000 on the {j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop, his opponent folded.

Pesta Soft Bubbles

mnuwwarah • Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Vitezslav Pesta got his remaining 31,000 in with {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and was up against the {k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{j-Hearts} of Sumit Sapra. The {3-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} flop offered Pesta a chance to turn his fore dead with a diamond, but the {10-Hearts} {9-Clubs} runout instead improved Sapra to a straight, with Pesta ruefully grabbing a photo of the beat with his phone.

Liran Twito (802,000), Vahid Amirzahiri (685,000) and Pim van Holsteyn (627,000) are way out in front of the remaining field heading into Day 2 of Event #6: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha. The next closest player only has 369,000.

The event restarts Sunday at 1 p.m. local time. The players will start only two outside the money. The final 29 players will be guaranteed at least €3,215 and the first place prize is worth €93,677 and a WSOP gold bracelet.

Three of the top ten players still vying for the WSOP Player of the Year title are still in the field. Mike Leah (142,000), John Racener (130,000) and Chris Ferguson (98,000) are all under 25 big blinds to start Day 2. Ferguson currently leads the Player of the Year race with just over a 90-point lead over the third place Racener. Leah is sitting in eighth place currently.

The bubble should burst pretty quickly at the start of play and PokerNews will have updates from the event as the players move one step closer to a WSOP gold bracelet and the WSOP Player of the Year race comes a little more into focus as WSOP Europe approaches the halfway point.
