There's also another limit event, a €200 Limit Holdem that begun around an hour ago and has seen 40 runners so far.

The players are yet to reach a final table in the €1k Single Re-Entry event. Simeon Naydenov, Erwann Pecheux, Vladimir Troyanovskiy and Georgios Zisimopoulos are four of the 13 players remaining. The €2k Turbo is expected to get under way at 7pm and will likely have the most stacked field of any event today - barring the High Roller.

Speaking of the High Roller, I'll be keeping an eye things in that event after the Main Event has finished; check back here for occasional snippets of news on all things regarding this huge event. And don't forget the Turbo Deepstack Win the Button at 9pm and the €1k HyperTurbo at midnight - there's still lots of poker to be played this evening.
