Eureka Prague: Playing along while playing along

It is Day 2 of the Eureka Prague Main Event, and today things will get interesting. That's not to say it wasn't already kind of intriguing, but there will be real money figures attached to everything very soon, and that always increases the tension.

The tournament staff is still working on getting the prize pool finalised, but Balazs Botond took €206,948 for winning this time last year and there are more players in this renewal.

There are 558 players still involved and around half the field will end up being paid. It just remains to be seen how much.

All eyes and ears will be on the bell-ringing leader Manuel Fernandes, who is the only man with more than 300,000 chips at this stage. But let's say Marc Convey doubled through Andriy Lyubovetskiy, also on his table, in the first level today. That would put Conv at the top of the charts.

I suspect a lot of frantic action in those early levels. More than two thirds of the starting 1,893 have already been eliminated and there's no reason to think it's going to slow down for a good while yet.

The plan today is to play another ten levels, lasting one hour each from hereon. That will get us done at around 12.30 a.m. It's going to be a long day.
