Eureka Hamburg Main Event: Welcome to Day 1D
The final starting flight of the Eureka5 Hamburg Main Event is finally here. It feels like the tournament has been treading water, waiting for this moment where progress can now be made. The final numbers for the €1,100 buy in event will be in and the number of players left will start to shrink as the four-day journey to a winner commences.
Today, we are 100% sure that the 200-player hard cap has been reached, meaning there will be some disappointed players who will miss out, especially if no-shows from yesterday turn up expecting a seat. They'll be lots of big name players to savour today. For starters, representing PokerStars, are Jan Heitmann and Natalie Hof; Youtube stars André "CommanderKrieger" Krieger and T-Zone, along with Alexander "Elton" Duszat.
Men on the moment Ole Schemion and Dzmitry Urbanovich are in attendance, as are Jonas Lauck, Dara O'Kearney, Jannick Wrang, Ronny Voth, David Lappin and High Roller runner up Timo Schneider. All in all it promises to be an exciting day.
Cards will be in the air at 1pm CET and stay tuned to the blog for articles and major talking points throughout the day.
