The WPTDeepStacks returned to the Es Saadi Resort in Marrakech in grand fashion with 213 players entering on Day 1a of the Main Event. This is up 32% from last year and means the tournament looks on track for record numbers.

After twelve levels of play here at the Casino de Marrakech, just 57 players advanced and there was a clear chip leader. Ismail Fath-Eddine moved up the counts, helped by the elimination of Moroccan Anas Tadini, to bag 448,500 in chips.

Other big stacks advancing included Fernando Suago (238,000), Robin Hegele (228,000) and Isabel Baltazar (204,000).

Tadini was one of several regulars here in Marrakech who played on Day 1a, and while he was unfortunate to bust, former Marrakech Poker Open High Roller champion Fadhil Farag (57,000), Sofian Benaissa (96,000) and former WSOP November Niner Fernando Pons (56,500) all bagged up stacks for Day 2.

Several big names joined the field late, including partypoker pros Bruno Fitoussi and Bertrand Grospellier. They were seated at the same table, with defending champion Francois Tosques sat in between them.

All three would bag up chips at the end of the Day, with Fitoussi (52,000) and Grospellier (74,000) behind Tosques (158,000) who doubled late on.

Join us on Friday 20th September right here on PokerNews from 13:00 local time for Day 1b to see who else can make it through to Day 2!

Late Double for Tosques

Nível 12 : 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

There's still time in the evening for defending champion Francois Tosques to bag a big double up to 145,000.

The average sits at 98,000 approaching the end of the evening. According to our French colleagues, Tosques over-bet shoved the river to secure his double and mean that he almost assured himself a place in Day 2.

Fath-Eddine Storms into Chip Lead

Nível 12 : 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Ismail Fath-Eddine was closing in on 400,000 chips after a late surge, but has blown past that with the elimination of Anas Tadini.

Tadini held {2-}{2-} against the {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} of Fath-Eddine, and the big stack held on the {4-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{3-Hearts} runout to send Tadini to the rail late on Day 1a.

Zizi Doubles Through Hegele

Nível 11 : 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

Abdou Zizi was sweating an all in holding {k-Clubs}{10-Spades} against the {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts} of Robin Hegele.

Zizi was all in for around 25,000 and as the river of a {7-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{k-Hearts} was dealt, he slid forward his chip stack confidently for a full double leaving a bemused-looking Hegele with less than starting stack.
