Day 2 Completed
Two WSOP bracelets. Five WSOP Circuit rings. And over $4 million in WSOP earnings. But Martin Kabrhel isn't finished there, as he eyes a third bracelet in Event #10: €25,000 Platinum High Roller here at the 2021 World Series of Poker Europe.
He leads the final eight players in the biggest buy-in event at this year's WSOPE, and is well clear of nearest competitors Joni Jouhkimainen and Day 1 chip leader Jordan Westmorland.
The only other bracelet winner left in the field is Ole Schemion who won his first bracelet earlier this month, and now goes for his second in the space of three weeks.

When it came to the bubble, two players were eliminated on the same table with Matas Cimbolas missing out and Andrea Ricci locking up a min-cash. The beneficiary? Martin Kabrhel.

With Matas Cimbolas all-in for 190,000 from the big blind, Andrea Ricci shoved for 1,805,000 from under the gun. Martin Kabrhel called on the button and Joni Jouhkimainen folded his small blind.
"If there's no king, you're still in the money," Kabrhel told Ricci before the flop. The flop came giving Cimbolas bottom pair, with Kabrhel's jacks still in the lead.
The turn and river could save neither player and Kabrhel knocked both out, with Ricci finishing in the money courtesy of his bigger stack.
