Eureka3 Croatia: Second flight about to spread its wings

Welcome back to Eureka3 Croatia here at the Golden Sun Casino in Dubrovnik. It's a balmy 17 degrees outside here on the Adriatic cost today but the poker action inside the casino promises to be just as hot.

For today the big guns have come to town there are no less than four, yes four, Team PokerStars Pros in the field today. Smattered amongst the tables of unsuspecting locals, satellite qualifiers and grinders you'll find Johnny Lodden, Dag Palovic and Christophe and Matthias De Meulder.

Cards are now in the air here and despite late registration being open until the start of level three and players still registering there are already 144 players in the field meaning, as usual, the Day 1B field will be significantly larger than Day 1A.The plan is naturally the same as yesterday, nine one hour levels with a short break after every two and a dinner break after level six.
