Jani Vilmunen was the initial raiser from the button and received one caller in Arvin Ravindran in the small blind. The pot didn't grow as much, only creating about 12,000 chips to the river of a board. Ravindran checked and Vilmunen checked behind to get shown for a full house.
"Good check," Florian Langmann added and Vilmunen grinned back. "Yeah, with my 8-10 full."
Arvin Ravindran won a small pot with top two pair, aces and kings on the flop, holding and Jesper Hougaard almost doubled up his stack as well. "I basically check-raise bluffed both Jani and Florian. I played with them so much, so I know when they are bluffing," the Dane grinned.
We have our first exit on Day 2, with Hans Olymp exited the tournament after just late-entering moments ago. In late position, Jan-Peter Jachtmann limped and Olymp followed behind. Dimitri Holdeew made a pot-sized bet of 6,600 which both players called. Olymp was all-in on a flop of with a set of kings and Jachtmann folded.
Olymp was drawing very thin when Holdeew called with a set of aces, and was unable to improve his hand to become the day's first casualty out in 17th place.
Benjamin Kang, King's Casino regular "Hans Olymp" and Roger Hairabedian bought into the tournament before the start of Day 2. After the first elimination, the field will be united to the last two tables. Hairabedian had in fact already purchased his ticket yesterday but only claimed the stack today.
Six World Series of Poker Circuit rings have already found a new owner at the King's Casino in Rozvadov and the poker outlet in the Czech Republic near the border to Germany is gearing up for the highlights of the festival in the upcoming days. But first, Day 2 of the €3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller will get underway in one hour from now at 16:00 local time.
The initial field of 32 entries has been cut down to 14 hopefuls within the first nine levels of play, all of them fighting for the guaranteed prize pool of €100,000. However, registration and reentry remain available until the first card is dealt so there may still be changes to the field size and prizes up for grabs.
Leading the field into Day 2 is 2012 WSOP PLO world champion Jan-Peter Jachtmann with 136,800 in chips, followed by 2009 WSOPE PLO braceler winner Jani Vilmunen (126,800) and Thomas Bichon (108,800). Other notables include Florian Langmann (86,700), Vasili Firsau (68,100), 2013 Eureka Prague champion Dimitri Holdeew (63,800), as well as the two two-time WSOP bracelet winners John Kabbaj (38,500) and Jesper Hougaard (25,500).
Play recommences in level 10 at blinds 600-1,200 and there will also be a live stream with commentary in German and English available as of 18:30. The action is on a security delay of 30 minutes, as the hole cards are shown. The PokerNews live reporting team will provide all key hands until the winner is crowned and also covers the Super High Roller and the €1,000,000 guaranteed Main Event until November 9th.
