After an incredible Day 1a of the Winamax SISMIX Main Event where 402 players entered, just 79 players advanced to Day 2 after 20 levels of play.
The tournament was so popular that although players were originally allowed one re-entry per flight, that was revised to allow for re-entry into the Turbo Day 1d flight on Friday only.
Several notable players jumped into the Main Event, including Winamax Team Pros Pierre Calamusa, Adrien Delmas and Leo Margets, along with former champion Jerome Sgorrano, Erwann Pecheux and French rugby player Hugues Briatte.
Of those players, just Margets would advance to Day 2. After announcing the ceremonial shuffle up and deal at the start of play, she registered at the first break and slowly built up her stack over the course of the day to bag 233,000. She previously finished 16th at the 2017 Winamax SISMIX and will be looking for another strong performance at a venue where she won €100,000 in 2010 as part of the Full Tilt Masters Series.
The chip lead is currently held by Yves Sanchez who turned his 50,000 starting stack into 702,000. There is a gap from him back to Ronan Houssein (558,000), Arthur Degois (533,000), Tim Hartmann (530,000), Louis Marette and Alexandre Regnier (both 507,000).
With several well-known players and Team Pros occupied today with the High Roller, which is still ongoing, tomorrow looks to be another exciting and jam-packed day of poker here at the Gran Casino Costa Brava, with Day 1b getting underway at midday.
Tournament officials have drawn for the remaining hands in Day 1a and there will be four hands before the players bag up for Day 2.
Ronan Houssein has been active of late, jumping into several pots in the last level of the night to try and increase his chip stack further.
However, Yves Sanchez has emerged as a strong contender as he sits with well over 600,000 in chips. Houssein still has time on his side if he wants to regain his chip lead.

The last level of the day is underway with 87 players remaining. The average currently stands at 232,000 with blinds at 3,000/6,000.
A full board of was out between WIP Ronan 'carbonr10' Houssein and an opponent. Houssein, a former professional Call of Duty player and Twitch streamer, overbet the pot and bet 100,000.
His opponent took his time before throwing in a single chip to call. Houssein turned over for a flopped set and his opponent mucked. This saw him chip up to well over 550,000 in chips.
