Stoyan Obreshkov

Day 1b of the WPT Online Series $3,200 Main Event on partypoker attracted a total of 394 entries to bring the total field size up to 915 entries when taking into account the 521 entries on Day 1a.

The tournament's $3 million guarantee is likely to be smashed with Day 1c taking place today just before the start of Day 2.

Both of the starting flights of the Main Event played down to just 15 percent of the field, which left 58 players still standing at the end of Day 1b. Bulgaria's Stoyan Obreshkov not only bagged the biggest stack on Day 1b with 4,555,237 in chips but will head into Day 2 as the overall chip leader, miles ahead of Day 1a chip leader Connor Drinnan.

Obreshkov has found recent success at partypoker. In April, the Bulgarian made a heads-up deal with Pavel Veksler in the 2021 Irish Open Main Event where he finished in second place for €224,769.

Meanwhile, Yuri Dzivielevski (3,779,407) and Johannes Straver (3,448,855) will also head to Day 2 from the Day 1b field with more than 3 million in chips while partypoker Ambassador Joao Simao (2,076,678) bagging the sixth most chips on Day 1a.
