Day 1 Completed
Day 1 Completed
The first day of Event #12: €100,000 Diamond High Roller No-Limit Hold’Em came to a close after eight levels of 60 minutes each. Over those first eight levels, 39 entries were collected with 25 players making it through to Day 2 here in the King’s Resort. With registration still open for the first four levels, more entries are expected to fight for their share of the €5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool and another shiny gold WSOP bracelet.
Manig Loeser captured the chip lead by bagging 6,140,000 at the end of the day. Most of those chips were collected when he doubled up through Ryan Riess with ace-king while the latter held pocket jacks. The king on the river took his stack to just above 6 million and that’s where he hovered around for most the rest of the day.
Trailing Loeser by only 40,000 in chips is Anatoly Filatov. Just like Loeser, Filatov got most of his chips when he doubled through Alex Foxen with two pair. Closing out the podium is Thomer Pidun with 5,535,000 in chips. Foxen himself finished fourth in the chip counts with 5,190,000.
There are still many bracelet winners in the race right now with James Chen, Daniel Negreanu, Adrian Mateos, Johannes Becker, Timothy Adams, Danny Tang, Phil Ivey, Joao Vieira, Kahle Burns, and Ryan Riess looking to add more WSOP jewelry to their collection.
Almost everyone who busted throughout the day, be it once or more, reentered except for Mikita Badziakouski. Matthias Eibinger and Orpen Kisacikoglu were also eliminated in the last level of the day but had already reentered somewhere throughout the day. As late registration or reentering is still possible during the first four levels of Day 2, they might jump back in on Thursday, October 24.
Day 2 will resume at 1 p.m. local time here in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, and play will continue until the final table has been reached. When the players return, Level 9 will start with a small blind of 25,000, a big blind of 50,000, and a big blind ante of 50,000. Levels duration will remain at 60 minutes each throughout the tournament with a 15-minute break after every two levels.
The PokerNews live reporting team will be there until the first card off the deck until the final bag has been sealed for Day 3 so make sure to keep following the live updates right here!
