Eureka6 Bucharest: Vlad Lazariciu leads the pack at end of turbo Day 1C
For anyone who busted on Day 1A or Day 1B of Eureka6 Bucharest, there was one last shot at redemption. One more chance for glory. A last chance saloon, if you will, that could see you play less than half the time of the other Day 2 qualifiers but still make it through.
It was Day 1C, a turbo flight that had 10 20-minute levels and was only open to those players who busted on Day 1A or Day 1B. 102 players decided to take one more shot, and at the end of play there were 57 more players added to the Day 2 field tomorrow.
The player who led them all was Vlad Alexandru Lazariciu who will be taking 118,100 into the battlefield tomorrow. Close behind him were Mitesh Anjaria (102,101), Lahmani Oshri (101,500), and Zhiping Zeng (90,900).
Other notable names who made it through included two-time Eureka €2k High Roller champ Tobias Peters (76,400), and Australian Poker Hall of Famer Jason Gray (23,200).
However, this final shot wasn't as successful for some. Among those who tried their luck for the second time were Eureka 4 Vienna winner Zoltan Gal, two-time EPT Main Event finalist Slaven Popov, EPT11 Deauville runner-up Dany Parlafes, Eureka 5 Prague fourth place finisher Vladas Burneikis, Eureka 4 Prague finalist Vladimir Velikov, Eureka 4 Vienna finalist Erik Scheidt, and Romanian pro Robert Cezarescu. None of them could make it through.
So, now we're onto Day 2, which starts tomorrow (Friday) at 1pm. If you want to find out how the other players made it through to Day 2, click on the links below and catch up on the action:
