Day 1b at WPT Baden is done with 136 players on to Day 2 including Party Poker pro Bodo Sbrzesny and WSOP runner-up Martin Staszko.

A bustling 254-player field hit the tables for Day 1b today, beefing up the prize pool to over $1m and locking in $271,258 for the winner.

Party Poker pro Sbrzesny, third-place finisher at WPT Prague in December, was one of the few notables to get off to a good start.

Sbrzesny bagged up 124,800 to end the night in fifth overall - just 10k back of chip leader Senadin Cosic. Italians Daniele Scatragli (135,700) and Paolo Compagno (133,800) and Brit Mitchell Johnson (132,200) round out the top 5.

Staszko, who has kept a pretty low profile for a WSOP runner-up but pops up here on there on the European circuit, also made it through to Day 2 with a decent stack of 61,500.

Mizrachi, Luske Hit the Bricks

The biggest name to hit the felt yesterday, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, didn't last long before hitting the exit.

Rolling in with an impressive entourage, the heavily-patched Mizrachi juiced up his table's action immediately, got it in on a draw shortly after and bricked to end his day.

All or nothing for Grinder.

Decidedly less patched, Flying Dutchman Marcel Luske also hit the felt but met the same fate in the last level of the day.

Dane Mickey "mement_mori" Petersen managed to hang on to see Day 2 with 19,400

  • 1. Senadin Cosic 135,800
