At 2 p.m. local time, it will be time for Day 2 of the WSOP International Circuit Main Event here at the wonderful King’s Resort. This will be the first time where the remaining 287 players out of 619 entries will get together to battle it out for their share of the €1,103,500 guaranteed prize pool which includes ten WSOPE Main Event Tickets for the top ten players.
The late registration and reentry period is open for the first two 40-minute levels of the day and the 20-minute break that follows it. At 3:40 p.m. registration will be closed and level duration will increase to 45 minutes each. A 30-minute dinner break is scheduled after the fifth level of play and a 15-minute break after the eighth level of the day.
Play will continue until the money has been reached and everyone who makes Day 3 will get €3,500 credited to their casino account immediately. The money that has been paid out will be deducted from the prize pool and the remainder will be played for on Day 3. As there were also online versions of Day 1 and Day 2 on partypoker, on Day 3, six players will join the field with the stacks they earned online. And on Day 3 play will continue until a winner has been crowned with a live stream and hole cards from the start of the day.
Starting the day as the chip leader is Daniel Dinulescu with 388,700 in chips. He is followed closely by Arunas Jocius (384,700) and Yan Li who bagged 382,200 last night. Other familiar names who bagged big and have a good starting point for Day 2 include Georgios Vrakas, Amar Begovic, Ionut Voinea, Elena Litvinyuk, Naor Slobodskoy, Grzegorz Wyraz, and the defending champion, Martin Kabrhel.
The PokerNews live reporting team will be there from the first card of the deck until the final chip has been bagged so keep following the updates right here.
