Welcome back to the coverage of the Coolbet Open Main Event A total of 227 players survived the two starting flights. The field was already at 583 after Day 1a attracted 193 entries and Day 1b brought in twice as much with 390 entries to bring the total to 583 entries and a prize pool of more than €270k.
Today late-reg and re-entries are possible during the first level of play and we expect mayhem during this first hour as the last players will try to run up their stacks for this event. The final entry number and prize pool will be announced shortly after late registration closes.
Today's goal is to reach the money ranks and play down to the last three or four tables. However, this might not be the case as play is scheduled to end in time for players to hop into Day 2 of the €330 Omaha event that kicked off last night.
Norway's Espen Ringstad is in the lead for now. Yesterday's self-proclaimed "Chip Billionaire" is the only player with more than 400k chips , followed by Estonia's Ranno Sootla with 350k chips.
You can follow the action at our live blog and we expect the cards to be in the air shortly past noon local time today.
