We're underway of Day 1B of the headline event, after a Day 1A saw many notable and formidable players take healthy stacks over to Day 2.
Ankhit Ahuja took over 173,100 (87bb), a strong display after his recent incredible score in the EUREKA Main Event where he scooped $362,365 after outlasting 2,658 opponents.
David Docherty is one of the top Scottish poker players around, and showed his class by bagging up 175,000 (88bb) and takes a healthy stack over to Day 2. Docherty has been all over the UK live poker scene as of late, with an strong run in the Edinburgh UKIPT Main Event and even better showing in the Malta Summer Festival where he scored 4th for €52,660.
Bart Lybaert will be looking to ascend up the Belgium all-time money list as he currently sits 6th with his $3.9m in cashes, and he has every chance to do that taking across a 125,000 (63bb).
Ryan O'Donnell takes a strong 80,000 (40bb) over to Day 2 after manoeuvring a short stack for most of the day. The Spin & Go and short-handed tournament expert is a coach for PokerCoaching and caught attention when he has a mesmerizing run in the World Series of Poker $25,000 High Roller bracelet, coming second to Ike Haxton and bagging a cool $1,049,577.
Conor Bergin was part of a group of strong players who did not manage to manouvre a stack over to Day 2, which includes the legend Andy Black, Niall Farrell and Arnaud Enselme. He is already back in the mix for Day 1B.
Don't forget that there are satellites running both live here at the Intercontinental Hotel and online at partypoker for this event - you can also buy in to Day 2 directly at 1k/2k levels and have 25bb, a fantastic structure!
