Welcome Back to Day 2 of the EPT11 Prague High Roller
Yesterday’s 10 hours of play was nothing short of exciting. Antes were introduced from the moment the event started, making every pot significant. Add to that it was a single re-entry for every player meant that a second chance was always available if things didn’t work out. For 63, out of the 294 total entrants so far, one bullet wasn’t enough and they ponied up another €10,000 buy-in.
Igor Yarosherskyy will start Day 2 as the chip leader of remaining 137 players with 318,300 in chips. Not too far behind him is Martin Kahbrel (316,000), Amor Mozaffarian (298,400), Daniel Shak (267,900) and Ole Schemion (266,300).
Ivan Soshnikov (177,500) is another to make the second day, after the defending EPT Prague High Roller champion fired a second bullet to finish the day strong. Also returning are PokerStars Team Pro’s Eugene Katchalov (178,600) and Bertrand Grospellier (147,500) as well as 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson (53,800).
Registration is still open until the start of play today so the total number of entrants and re-entrants is bound to increase. Blinds will be resuming at 1,000 / 2,000 with a 300 ante level 11. We will bring you the details of the pay-out structure and top prize as soon as it’s announced with first place sure to be an impressive amount of money.
