The first of two starting days of the 2016 WSOP Circuit €1,650 Main Event at King's Casino in Rozvadov attracted a field of 298 players. 33 players opted for a reentry after they busted, which brought the total number of entries to 331. After 12 levels of 45 minutes each, 146 players bagged up chips and advanced to Day 2 on Sunday.

After making a huge call against Alexander Lakhov in one of the final hands of the day, Francisco Arce bagged 317,800 in chips to claim the overall chiplead after Day 1a. Other notables to finish Day 1a with above-average stacks included Martin Slajer (204,900), Miroslav Forman (202,300), Matas Cimbolas (140,000), the aforementioned Lahkov (89,300), and Dominik Panka (38,000).

Players who failed to make Day 2 included Martin Staskzo, Tobias Peters, Bart Lybaert, Dan Murariu, Pierre Neuville, Johnny Hansen, Petr Jelinek, and Martin Kabrhel.

Day 1b will be open for players who bagged a stack after Day 1a as well, in case players like another shot in this tournament. After two starting days, they can carry over the bigger stack to increase their chances at taking home a portion of the €1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The second starting day gets underway at 2:00 p.m. local time on Saturday. The PokerNews Live Reporting team will be back at the tables to cover a huge starting day.
