The second day of the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe €10,350 Main Event is in the books after seven levels of play. The field size surpassed the first starting flight but the €5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool has not been reached yet as the total number of entries on Day 1B was 201. Together with the entries of Day 1A, this makes it a total of 341 entries. Out of the 201 players today, 148 managed to find a bag for Day 2, Monday, October 30.

Topping the chip counts is someone that is well-known throughout the poker world, Spain’s own Adrian Mateos collected 393,700 over the course of the day after he had been eliminated from Event #9: €100,000 No-Limit Hold'em King's Super High Roller for €331,943 earlier in the day. Mateos already has three bracelets of which one was actually won for being victorious in the WSOPE Main Event in 2013 in Enghien-les-Bains. He will definitely be wanting to win another one, right here in the beautiful King’s Resort.

Trailing Mateos in the chip counts today is a duo from Canada. Hani Bahna bagged 309,900 and Aaron Duczak will take 302,100 in chips with him into Day 2. Bahna and Duczak both have over $300,000 in cashes, but Bahna has never cashed in Rozvadov while Duczak collected four of them last year and already has five this year.

Other notable players bagging more than twice the start stack at the end of play today include Renato Nowak (296,500), Tobias Peters (296,200), Felix Bleiker (292,800), Mustapha Kanit (266,800), Xixiang Luo (255,700), Mathijs Jonkers (252,300), Wai Leong Chan (242,600), Martin Mulsow (237,500), Boris Kolev (230,000), and Martin Kabrhel with 204,000.

Kabrhel had a bit of a rocky start when he received a one-round penalty for exposing his cards too early but managed to make the most of his late entry. The late entry wasn’t without reason though as he had just won his second career bracelet in the €100,000 No-Limit Hold'em King's Super High Roller for €2,624,340!

Other players to keep an eye on on Day 2 include Tobias Ziegler, Viktor Blom, John Duthie, Roger Teska, Timothy Adams, Gal Yifrach, Allen Kessler, Fahredin Mustafov, Mykhailo Gutyi, Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Timur Margolin, Ismael Bojang, Will Givens, Anson Tsang, Julian Thomas, Dario Sammartino, Davidi Kitai, Bertrand Grospellier, Norbert Szecsi, Dutch Boyd, and Paul Hoefer for example.

Not everyone made was fortunate enough though to make it through. Shaun Deeb shot two bullets but missed with both of them so won’t be back tomorrow. This is also the case for the 2018 WSOP Main Event Champion, John Cynn. Other players who busted but might be back tomorrow on Day 2 as they can still reenter during the first four levels include Stefan Schillhabel, Dominik Nitsche, Steve O’Dwyer, Michael Soyza, Marcel Luske, and Shan Huang.

Day 2 will start at noon local time, Monday, October 30, with Level 8 which features a small blind of 600, big blind of 1,200, and a big blind ante of 1,200. Six levels of play are scheduled with a 15-minute break after each level and a 60-minute break after Level 11. The late registration and reentry period will be closed at the end of the dinner break. Players who made Day 2 on their first bullet and bust or use their first bullet on Day 2, may reenter during these first four levels of play.

The PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand to bring you all the updates as the 221 surviving players will come together to battle it out to make it through to Day 3.

Yankov Makes a "Banana Check"

Level 7 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante

Martin Kabrhel raised to 2,500 and he was three-bet by Krasimir Yankov. The bet was 8,000 and Kabrhel asked if Yankov had pocket eights. He didn't reply and Kabrhel called.

The flop was dealt {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{2-Spades} and Kabrhel checked to Yankov. Yankov dropped 5,500 in the middle and Kabrhel started talking again.

"What is that bet? That bet is like an ante, I call".

The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and both players checked this time.

The {A-Clubs} river completed the board and Kabrhel checked again. Yankov thought about it but he decided to check behind.

Kabrhel opened up {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Yankov showed {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}. While Yankov was raking in the pot Kabrhel commented on his check behind and called it a "banana check".

Shaijwani Doubles Through Kitai

Level 7 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante

The flop read {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Sanjay Sahijwani and Davidi Kitai were heads-up with Sahijwani all-in and at risk.

Sanjay Sahijwani: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Davidi Kitai: {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Sahijwani had flopped a set and Kitai had the flush.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} to pair the board up and give Sahijwani the full house to double up but the {10-Hearts} could still change the situation as Kitai would then have the straight flush but the [8j] wasn't that.

Six More Hands

Level 7 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante

The floor staff just announced that, after a random draw, the players will have six more hands in the day just like yesterday. After that, they'll start bagging and tagging and they've made Day 2 of the Main Event.

Kanit Takes From Lehmanski

Level 7 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante
Mustapha Kanit
Mustapha Kanit

Mustapha Kanit had three-bet to 8,200 from the big blind after Maxi Lehmanski had opened from the button. Lehmanski called and they saw the {J-Spades}{A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} flop appear.

Kanit slowly moved his right arm to his chip stack to grab 7,100 and as soon as he dropped the chips over the line Lehmanski folded.
