Eureka5 Hamburg Main Event: Welcome to Day 1C

May 27, 2015

Once more, welcome back to the Spielbank Schenefeld Casino where the Eureka5 Hamburg Main Event resumes with the third of four starting flights after a two-day hiatus. The cap for today’s field is a hard 200 and the day is close to being a sell out and most probably will be by the time registration closes at the end of level 6.
