Welcome back to the King’s Casino for continued coverage of Eureka Rozvadov, the first stop on the fifth season of a tour growing in popularity and size.
The tour made history yesterday by being the first to introduce a Day 1C Turbo re-entry flight. Those who busted Day 1A last Saturday or Day 1B yesterday were offered the opportunity to make Day 2 by re-entering. Amazingly almost 40% of eligible players took up the opportunity and helped make this the biggest ever Eureka Rozvadov.
A total of 664 entries is a significant increase from the 493 that entered last season and helps cement Rozvadov as one of the premiere destinations to play poker in Central Europe.
A total of 255 players have made it to Day 2 (full seat draw here)and they’re led by the chip leader from Day 1A, Langar Oghabian. He leads a top ten heading into the day that looks like:
Name, Country, Chip count
Langar Oghabian, Netherlands — 258,900
Roman Blaha, Czech Republic — 250,700
Catalin Pop, Romania — 239,500
Steve Berger, Germany — 226,500
Georgios Tzimas, Greece — 220,000
Denis Ursu, Russia — 219,300
Thomer Pidun, Germany — 211,500
Dennis Wilke, Germany — 202,600
Nikolai Bozic, Germany — 186,600
Hasan Kaylan, Turkey — 182,600
Reigning champion Martin Meciar busted Day 1B but managed to make today via Day 1C. He’ll be joined by the likes of Robert Wilke, Tobias Peters, Martin Mulsow, Petr Jelinek, Martin Kabrhel, Dag Palovic, Adam Owen, Sam Grafton and Team PokerStars Pro Christophe De Meulder.
