Wildcard 'oblowski512' had the chip lead when the tourney reached five players and initially chose to play against Marcin Horecki. However the team's sole-Pole, and repeat winner from Monday, 'kAmIkAdZeEe' asked that he get the opportunity to play against his compatriot. 'oblowski512' showed his team spirit and duly stepped aside, allowing for the mouth-watering prospect of an all Polish 14:00 match on Day 2 of All Star Week.

The switch means that 'oblowski512' will now kick of the day's matches in a NLHE clash with Katja Thater.

A further act of team spirit took place when '666 INRI' agreed to switch his initial choice of taking on Noah Boeken at PLO8 in Match 3. 'Canuck', a former PLO8 WCOOP champion, was anxious to play his specialist game and asked if '666 INRI' would swap. He duly agreed and will now combat Team PokerStars Pro's newest face JC Alvarado in Match 5.

Amidst all the changing 'VOLCANO360' got the fourth choice and agreed to play Match 4 against fearsome Russian Alex Kravchenko. It looks unlikely that he'll be able to fit the match in between classes though, so it's possible he'll be switching later in the week.

We'll keep you updated with the latest results and changes as the week
