10:45pm: End of the day
Level 18 - Blinds 4,000/8,000 (1,000 ante)

That's the end of Day 2, a wrap of the day's play is on the way.

10:35pm: Last three hands
Level 18 - Blinds 4,000/8,000 (1,000 ante)

The players will play three more hands before bagging and tagging their chips.

10:25pm: Back to back bustouts gives Daniel Rose massive chip lead
Level 18 - Blinds 4,000/8,000 (1,000 ante)

The average stack is 248,000. Three times the average (746,000) is usually good for the chip lead. Daniel Rose has 1,590,000 after winning two massive back to back pots.

In the first Mateusz Martewicz opened from middle position, Boris Andreev smooth called from the small blind and Rose did likewise from the big blind. The flop was a tasty looking J♣9♦8♦. Andreev led for 30,000, Rose raised to 110,000, Martewicz clicked it to 190,000, Andreev shoved for about 180,000 total and Rose re-raised all-in.

Martewicz then tanked before folding what he claimed was a ten high flush draw, Rose had Q♥T♥ for the flopped straight, whilst Andreev held Q♦J♥. The A♣ turn and K♦ river completed the board to eliminate Andreev, whilst Martewicz would've eliminated both players had he called. That's quite crucial because on the next hand...

Rose, Martewicz and Martin Ilavsky - who were the three biggest stacks at the table - all saw a flop of T♠8♠J♥. It checked through and the 5♥ hit the turn and this is where it all went off.

Rose led for 30,000, Ilavsky raised to 125,000, Martewicz moved all-in for 570,000 (remember the average stack is just 248,000 at this point) and Rose then instantly re-raised all-in for abut 800,000 total. Wow!

Ilavsky now got out of his seat to try and comprehend what was going on. He had about 380,000 back and seemed unsure of what to do. "I have a set," he said to Rose as he mulled it over. Eventually he elected to fold T♣T♦ and it was time for showdown:

Rose: 8♦8♥ - a set of eights
Martewicz: K♥9♥ - flush and straight draw

Ilavsky couldn't believe it, whilst Rose was delighted! The J♦ river kept Rose in front and he won a massive 1,300,000 chip pot. It's safe to say he'll be the end of day chip leader.

10:05pm: Last level of the night
Level 18 - Blinds 4,000/8,000 (1,000 ante)
Level 18 will be the eighth and final level of Day 2. There were 74 players left at the start of the level and Thomas Lamatsch - who's the Tournament Director - think they'll be 43 players left at the end of the day. The PokerStars Blog predicts 47.

9:50pm: Rodriguez runs into the better hand
Level 18 - Blinds 4,000/8,000 (1,000 ante)

Rouco Rodriguez opened to 16,000 from late position, Jonas Lauck three-bet to 35,000 out of the small blind, Rodriguez moved all-in for around 130,000 and Lauck made the call.

Lauck: 9♥9♠
Rodriguez 8♣8♠

Rodriguez made the international noise for 'oh bother' when he saw he was behind. It didn't get any better for him as the 5♠J♠J♦Q♥T♣ board meant Lauck stayed in front and climbed to 440,000.


Rouco Rodriguez

9:35pm: More bustouts
Level 17 - Blinds 3,000/6,000 (1,000 ante)

There's a queue at the payout desk and it's no surprise as the players are flying out at a rate of knots. Gunther Rettel, Feryat Toprakil, Ivan Kruljac, Ingo Paulus, Frederic Schwarzer, Sergey Topchiy and Oliver Heidel are all out.

9:20pm: In the money finishers
Level 17 - Blinds 3,000/6,000 (1,000 ante)

It's congratudolences to the following players as they've cashed yes, but they've also crashed out of this tournament during level 17: Ayhan Agdas, Jens Steuber, Mateusz Bober, Maik Pribil, Rijad Hasani, Gregorz Bartold, Danilo Velasevic, Thomas Hueber, Lee Mulligan, Peter März, Julien Arethuse, Jean-Marc Jelk, Denis Panagopulos, Roland Weidinger and Aleksander Abutovic.

84 players left.

9:10pm: Mulsow no more
Level 17 - Blinds 3,000/6,000 (1,000 ante)

Martin Mulsow, who's always a gregarious presence at the table, is out and it's Boris Andreev who got him.

Mulsow opened to 15,000 from early position and Andreev smooth called from the small blind. On the 3♦7♠7♦ flop Mulsow bet 15,000 and Andreev check-called.

The K♠ fell on fourth street and Mulsow moved all-in for his final 60,000 and Andreev snap called. Mulsow showed A♠Q♣ and Andreev had outdrawn him with K♦Q♦. The 8♦ river improved Andreev to a flush and Mulsow was on his way.

The online grinder still has time to late-reg the Sunday Million if he wants.

9pm: Last lady lives on
Level 17 - Blinds 3,000/6,000 (1,000 ante)

Maria Lampropoulos is the final female player in this tournament and she just doubled up to survive.

Down to just 48,000 she shoved with 7♠7♦ and Martin Kabrhel put her at risk with A♥4♣.The 9♦T♥6♥J♥J♣ board gave her a sweat but she doubled to around 110,000 whilst Kabrhel slips to 405,000.

8:55pm: Chips!
Level 17 - Blinds 3,000/6,000 (1,000 ante)

Below are the top 10 stacks of the 103 remaining players. It's Martin Ilvasky who leads the way. Whilst David Urban and Martin Kabrhel are also well placed. You can see a more complete set of chip counts on our dedicated chip count page.

8:50pm: Back from the dinner break
Level 17 - Blinds 3,000/6,000 (1,000 ante)

Dinner's done. The players are back in their seats for the final two levels of the night.

7:50pm: Dinner break
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

The bubble burst on the final hand of level 16 and the players are now on a 60 minute dinner break.

7:45pm: Martin Guth bubbles Eureka6 Rozvadov
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

Bubbling this tournament was a double bad beat for Martin Guth as you'll see.

He shoved for 52,000 with J♣J♦ and Karol Radomski called with A♣9♣ from a stack of 240,000. The 6♥5♥A♥Q♣T♥ board meant Guth was out.

But, there was all-in at another table and if the all-in player was eliminated Guth and he would chop 103rd place money.


Guth (centre) leans forward to look at the board

It was Grzegorz Wyraz who was at risk, he was all-in for 93,000 with K♠Q♦ and in bad shape against Arsenii Karmatckii's A♣K♦.

Guth had wandered over to watch the hand and looked on as the board came T♥9♠A♦J♦8♣ to make Wyraz a straight meaning Guth left empty handed.

7:40pm: The bubble has burst
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

Details coming right up.

7:30pm: Clinging to the bubble
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

Mykola Lakatosh is down to just 7,000 and looks to be most at risk of bubbling here in Rozvadov. He's got a couple more hands to the big blind hits him. Will he survive?

7:20pm: Bubble time
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

We're on the bubble in Rozvadov.

Josef Pavelka, who was runner-up last year here suffered a bad beat at the hands of Petr Machacek to bust. Pavelka had kings to Machacek's jacks but a jack on the flop sent him out in 106th.

And Jens Hansen is out in 105th. He shoved for about 50,000 from the button with A♦K♥ and Thomas Hueber called from the big blind with A♣6♦. A cruel 2♦3♠8♣8♦6♠ board saw Hansen eliminated by the river.

7:15pm: The stalling begins
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

We're a couple of spots off the bubble but the stalling has begun. Andriy Palyuga - who has 78,000 - so isn't super short had the clock called on him. The Ukranian was under-the-gun and had taken an age to act.

His time didn't tick down to zero though as he mucked with about 15 seconds left.

7pm: Paus survives
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

Down to just 25,500 Dominik Paus moved all-in from under-the-gun and although a couple of players looked interested he got the shove through and survived.

6:50pm: Six off the bubble
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

With the eliminations of Radek Jantos and Ioan Mihai Taizs just 109 players are left. 103 get paid.

6:35pm: Level up
Level 16 - Blinds 2,500/5,000 (500 ante)

Level 16 is the last level before the dinner break and it looks as if the bubble should burst before it ends. As the level started there were 112 players left in. Brandon Boswell, Bernhard Haider and Dustin Mangold are three of the players who've just missed the money.

6:25pm: Big slick vs big chick
Level 15 - Blinds 2,000/4,000 (500 ante)

By the time I arrived at the table there was already a bet of 16,000 in front of Johannes Dandl (under-the-gun+1) and an all-in shove of 92,000 in front of Domenico Gal. Dandl was in the tank and after thinking for a couple of minutes he called.

Gal: A♣K♣
Dandl: A♦Q♣

The 5♥K♦A♠ flop gave Gal a good grip on the hand but he refused to sit down until the 4♣ turn card sealed the deal. The meaningless 5♦ completed the board.

After that hand Gal is up to 192,000 whilst Dandl slips to 150,000.

6:10pm: The bubble looms
Level 15 - Blinds 2,000/4,000 (500 ante)

Just 120 players remain now, 103 of whom will get paid. Recent exits include: Jan Bloch, Igor Loginov, Udo Hemmert, Marius-Alexandru Gicovanu, Stefan Rapp and Day 1B chip leader Quentin Dellis.

6pm: Use the Schwarzer
Level 15 - Blinds 2,000/4,000 (500 ante)

From the cutoff Apostolos Chatzopoulos opened to 8,500, Frederic Schwarzer then shoved from the small blind for 47,500 and it folded back to Chatzopoulos who got a count and then called.

Schwarzer: 8♠8♥
Chatzopoulos: A♠2♠

The 6♣9♠6♦K♥T♦ board favoured the German. He doubled to 105,000 whilst Chatzopoulos slipped to 110,000.

5:55pm: There's a new chip in play
Level 15 - Blinds 2,000/4,000 (500 ante)

The start of Level 15 meant the 100 chips were no longer needed. So they were raced off and replaced with some green chips which are worth 25,000 a piece. Ivan Luca has two of them and he's got about 300,000 in total.


Lots of lucre for Luca

5:40pm: Sevens stay strong for Serif
Level 15 - Blinds 2,000/4,000 (500 ante)

Serif Gozegir is up to 280,000 after eliminating Markus Luczak. The Turkish player opened to 8,500 from under-the-gun, Luczak shoved for 47,000 total and Gozegir called the extra.

Luczak: 2♠2♦
Gozegir: 7♥7♦

By the turn of a 9♣A♥A♣8♠ board there were some split pot possibilities but the 4♠ fell on the river and Luczak was eliminated.

5:30pm: Hour long levels from here on
Level 15 - Blinds 2,000/4,000 (500 ante)

Level 15 has just started and the levels will be 60 minutes in length from now on. There are 140 players remaining and the average stack is a little over 120,000 (30 big blinds).

5:15pm: End of level 14
Level 14 - Blinds 1,500/3,000 (400 ante)

Level 14 has come to an end and the players are now on a 15 minute break.

5:10pm: Down to 140
Level 14 - Blinds 1,500/3,000 (400 ante)

Over the opening four levels more than half the field has been eliminated as we're down to 140 players. Janis Matisons, Benjamin Bauer, Lukasz Tomecki, Daniel Onat, Robert Hana, Robert Schulz, Charles La Boissonniere, Ondrej Mar and Marian Virlanuta are some of the latest casualties on Day 2.

Robert Kokoska - second in chips

4:40pm: Nice river!
Level 14 - Blinds 1,500/3,000 (400 ante)

Down to just 13,400 Andreas Gann moved all-in with K♣K♦ and picked up a call from Martin Kabrhel, who held 8♥8♠.

The 8♦Q♣T♠ flop gave Kabrhel the lead, the 9♦ turn made things interesting and the J♥ river completed Gann's straight and he survived.

Despite that hit Kabrhel still has a healthy stack of around 150,000.


Kabrhel - doing alright

4:30pm: Getting closer to the money
Level 14 - Blinds 1,500/3,000 (400 ante)

Level 14 will be the last 45 minute level of the tournament as we push the clock up to 60 minutes from level 15 onwards. As the level gets under way 154 players remain but sadly for fans of: Robert Wirth, Marc Radgen, Thomas Mulansky, Roman Sokolov, Teodor Popovic, Marcin Jaworski, Friedrich Raz, Jan Nakladal, Tim Eulenbach, Wieslan Klimczak, Georgios Vrakas and Marc-Andre Ebermann they are all out.

4:20pm: Clash of the titans?
Level 13 - Blinds 1,200/2,400 (300 ante)

Martin Ilavsky has just been moved two seats to the left of Dennis Karacic. They are two of the five biggest stacks in the tournament. Ilavsky has 350,000 whilst Karacic has 280,000.

If they get involved in a big pot they might create one super stack!

4:10pm: Sent to the rail
Level 13 - Blinds 1,200/2,400 (300 ante)

Blinds go up and the number of players go down, it's a fact of life for a poker tournament. Helping that number get closer to the 103 who get paid are: Thomas Traboulsi, Mihai Stinca, Marko Turnsek, Dag Palovic, Robert Zipf, Ulf Steringer, Paraschos Stavridis, Tamas Janicsak, Petr Satek, Michael Huber, Michal Mrakes, Gregory Luttke and Eimantas Valcius.

4pm: Slowroll, nitroll or neither? You decide
Level 13 - Blinds 1,200/2,400 (300 ante)

I joined the action to see a three-bet of 13,500 in front of Igor Loginov and an all-in shove of roughly 72,200 in front of Tonio Roder. Loginov was in the tank and took some time before calling.

Roder: J♥J♦
Loginov: K♦K♠

Roder simply smiled when he saw that Loginov had taken as long to call as he did with pocket kings. The 4♠9♦2♣6♦2♥ board kept the cowboys in front and Loginov took a bit of stick from players at the table about his play. Not from Roder though it should be noted.

Igot Loginov, 157,300

3:55pm: Kokoska climbs to the summit
Level 13 - Blinds 1,200/2,400 (300 ante)

Robert Kokoska started the day with 38,200. He's now up to 335,000, which is good for the chip lead. As to how he got there, well he told a colleague he had aces twice and kings once. Easy game.

3:46pm: One a minute
Level 13 - Blinds 1,200/2,400 (300 ante)

The 197 remaining players are back in their seats. Doing the math, that means we lost 90 players in the opening 90 minutes!

3:31pm: Break time
Level 12 - Blinds 1,000/2,000 (300 ante)

That's the end of level 12 and the players are now on a 15 minute break.

3:30pm: All out
Level 12 - Blinds 1,000/2,000 (300 ante)

Over 80 players have been eliminated in the opening 90 minutes. Markarios Avramidis, Vlad Darie, Thorsten Ostwald, Rainer Emde, Lukas Pezda and Mihai Hanu are some of those who've been knocked out.

3:15pm: Aces no good for Pospiech
Level 12 - Blinds 1,000/2,000 (300 ante)

Marius Pospiech wandered over to media row and told my German colleague how he'd exited the tournament. Turns out Pospiech got it all-in with aces against queens for a 80,000 chip pot. So far, so good. A queen on the flop meant it was all over for the German though.


Aces cracked for Pospiech

3:05pm: Double up for Khomamy
Level 12 - Blinds 1,000/2,000 (300 ante)

From early position Petr Machacek opened to 4,500 and Kasra Pour Khomamy then moved all-in for 37,900 total from the small blind. It passed back to Machacek, he got a count and then called.

Machacek: Q♦J♦
Khomamy: A♣4♠

Khomamy was surprised to see he was ahead, and it stayed that way on a K♠4♥2♠6♣3♦ board. He's up to around 80,000 whilst Machacek drops to 125,000.

2:55pm: More exits
Level 12 - Blinds 1,000/2,000 (300 ante)

It's always the same on Day 2 as there's a flurry of exits during the opening level or two before things settle down.

The latest batch of players to feel the hangman's noose around the neck of their tournament life are: Jan Petras, Jan Navratil, Demir Ismail, Natalia Nikitina, Rainer Emde, Marcel Kesler, Olaf Langenfeld, Alexandre Hocquaux, Zeljko Jovanovic, Vladimir Demenkov and Sergey Menshov.

2:45pm: Eiler flying
Level 11 - Blinds 800/1,600 (200 ante)

It's been a great opening level for Michael Eiler. The EPT7 Vienna champion is up to 235,000.


Eiler's up to the top of the chip counts

2:30pm: Respect the raise
Level 11 - Blinds 800/1,600 (200 ante)

If Ivan Luca isn't the best player left in this field (Martin Kabrhel perhaps?) then he's the best player with a big stack and he just put it to good use.

Tamas Janicsak opened to 3,500 from the cutoff, Antonio Martins Pedro smooth called on the button and Luca, who was in the small blind, considered his options.

He announced raise and slid out a bet totalling 12,700. Janicsak quickly folded and although Pedro looked interested he too folded to the Argentinian.

2:10pm: Short day for...
Level 11 - Blinds 800/1,600 (200 ante)

Day 2 has not gone the way they'd have hoped for Frank Robotka, Tomasz Domaracki, Seballo Faldalarga, Michael Polchlopek, Frank Stumpf, David Dolak, Carsten Barth, Michael Koran, Petar Petrov, Tomas Pleticha, Adrian Esslen or Martin Bartos as they're all out.

None of those players had over 20 big blinds to start the day.

2pm: Shuffle up and deal
Level 11 - Blinds 800/1,600 (200 ante)

Right on time the tournament is under way. Just before play started the Tournament director announced details of the prize pool. The winner will collect €124,890, whilst a 103 players will get paid, with a min-cash worth €1,800. See the full structure here.

1:50pm: Day 2 set to start
Level 11 - Blinds 800/1,600 (200 ante)

Welcome to Day 2 of Eureka6 Rozvadov. There were a total of 682 entrants into the Main Event and 287 of those have made it to Day 2. Leading the way is Quentin Dellis. The Belgian, who finished sixth at UKIPT5 Dublin in February, is the only player who'll begin Day 2 with over 200,000 as he bagged up 201,100 to top the Day 1B field.


Quentin Dellis

The plan for today is to play eight levels. The first four of those will be 45 minutes in length and then from level 15 onwards the clock is increased to 60 minutes.

Play will start on time at 2pm. Stick right here for moving day.
