Out of a field of 623 total entries in Event #2: €550 Pot-Limit Omaha, only 62 hopefuls will return to their seats in Europe's biggest poker arena at the King's Resort in Rozvadov. Day 2 will recommence at 2pm local time and the largest slice of the €295,925 is still up for grabs. Both starting days already paid out a portion of the prize money, which leaves $264,910 up for grabs for the penultimate and final day of the second gold bracelet event of the 2021 World Series of Poker Europe.
King's regular and Pot-Limit Omaha specialist Dorel Eldabach will aim to finish one spot higher than in 2020 GGPoker.com Event #62: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha, in which he claimed a payday of $168,478 as the runner-up. Eldabach claimed the biggest stack of 625,000 so far while Bjorn Verbakel follows in second place with 609,000. Dutchman Verbakel was among the players to cash on Day 1a and bust before bagging and tagging, then tried again on Day 1b to become one of the chip leaders.
