Day 2 of the 6-Max Event Kicks off at 1PM
The second of four events at the 2018 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro festival at the Maestral Resort & Casino will determine a champion today. Day 2 of the HKD$250,000 (approximately $31,850) 6-Max Event gets back underway at 1 p.m. local time and thus far, a field of 28 entries has emerged, of which 15 players bagged up chips last night.
The size of the field is not set in stone just yet, however, as the registration and re-entry period remains open for the first two levels of 40 minutes each. All new additions to the field will receive 50,000 in chips and level 10 recommences with blinds of 800-1,600 and a running ante of 200.
Leading the field into Day 2 is German High Roller regular Christian Christner with 193,900, followed closely by Malaysia's Chan Wai Leong (189,300). In third place sits Isaac Haxton with 171,600 and Stephen Chidwick is aiming to add further glory to his already impressive start into the year. Chidwick, who has taken over the top spot of the GPI Player of the Year and overall ranking, will return to the tables with 106,800.
Some of the other familiar faces of the High Roller circuit still in contention are Winfred Yu (98,400), Dominik Nitsche (84,800), Koray Aldemir (83,000), Mikita Badziakouski (82,400), Orpen Kisacikoglu (61,400), Stefan Schillhabel (43,000), Manig Loeser (25,400), Julian Thomas (23,300) and Dietrich Fast (15,400).
Among those to be expected to join the action on the final day are Steve O'Dwyer, Steffen Sontheimer and Jason Koon, and the PokerNews live reporting team will be on the floor to provide all the action until a winner is crowned. The Triton Poker Twitch stream will be available on a security delay of 30 minutes as well with English commentary by Randy Lew and Kane Kalas.
