Day 1b of the €5,300 EPT Main Event at the 2018 PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague held at the Hilton Prague is in the books. A total of 785 players registered for the flight, including 109 reentries. Only about 300 of them are left after 10 one-hour levels of play. The chip lead is for Armin Mette. The Austrian bagged 280,000 and sits in second place overall, behind Day 1a chip leader John Sarailis with 297,400.

Mette is closely followed by Aku Joentausta (276,600), Arthur Conan (275,000), and Simon Pedersen 265,400. Pedersen once won a €1,100 side event at EPT10 Vienna for €73,750 and is now looking for more success at the European Poker Tour.

The day started with about 300 players already registered for the tournament, but registration is still open until the start of Day 2. Plenty of big names started the day, but they didn't make it through to Day 2. The 2016 EPT Prague Main Event champion Jasper Meijer van Putten was one of those players. Others who didn't make it include Vojtech Ruzicka, Andy Hills, Davidi Kitai and PokerStars Team Pro members Maria Konnikova, Jaime Staples and Jake Cody.

Fatima Moreira de Melo (30,700) and Muskan Sethi (27,500) are still waving the flag for PokerStars Team Pro.

More players that made it through to Day 2 include Sylvain Loosli (162,800), Alex Papazian (113,300), Dietrich Fast (85,200), Anton Wigg (79,000) and Jason Wheeler (62,500).

The tournament will continue with Day 2 on Friday starting at 12 p.m. local time. Levels will be 90 minutes from Day 2 onwards and they will play five levels on Day 2 with a break after every level. Stay tuned to PokerNews to follow updates from the €5,300 EPT Main Event at the Hilton Prague.

Martynas Vitkauskas raised from early position to 2,800 and Jake Cody three-bet to 8,100. Vitkauskas moved all in for 43,200 and Cody called.

A couple of hands later he lost his last 5,500 with {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts} against the {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts} of Vitkauskas. The board landed {3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{J-Spades}{K-Clubs} and Cody was officially out of the Main Event.

Van Brugge Eliminates Ruzicka

Nível 10 : 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Kees van Brugge opened early for 2,500 and Vojtech Ruzicka shoved all in for 29,600 a couple of seats over. Van Brugge thought briefly and called with {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}, racing against Ruzicka's {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. The board ran out {j-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{a-Spades}, so Van Brugge faded ten outs on the flop to win it.

Montury Wins a Race

Nível 10 : 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

A player in the cutoff opened for 1,900, Jean Montury reraised to 7,000 in the next seat and his opponent jammed for about 30,000. Montury thought around 20 seconds and dropped in calling chips.

Jean Montury: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

The {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} gave both players flush draws but Montury made the better flush on the {k-Hearts} turn to seal it.

Morin Doubles Through Mustafov

Nível 10 : 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

Pierre Morin got all in for 33,600 in the hijack with {k-Spades}{k-Hearts} but his neighbor on the left, Fahredin Mustafov, had {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts} and a covering stack. Morin got up to exit but the {2-Spades}{k-Clubs}{6-Spades} stopped him in his tracks. The turn and river both failed to produce an ace, so Morin doubled through.
