Day 1c completed
The third and penultimate starting day of the 2017 PokerNews Cup Rozvadov €250 Main Event at the King's Casino attracted a field of 196 entries in total, of which 38 advanced to Day 2 to join the 33 survivors of the previous two flights. Bagging up the most chips after 15 levels of 30 minutes each was Germany's Markus Fritsche (422,500), followed by Gintautas Strioga (344,000) and Martin Kabrhel (328,000).
TonyBet online qualifier Dmytro Nesin (300,000) was among those to get through with a big stack as well, along with Bouabdellah Karoui (250,000), Onkel Otto (218,000) and Willem de Jong (200,000). Other notables through to Day 2 via the penultimate flight include Matous Skorepa (174,500), Karol Radomski (152,500) and 2017 World Series of Poker bracelet winner Sebastian Langrock (114,000).
Fritsche vaulted into the top spot in the second-last level of the night when he scored a big double with pocket jacks against the ace-ten of Asmo Votkin, who flopped top pair. Votkin busted soon after against Gintautas Strioga and the Norwegian made the headlines prior to that with two double eliminations within quick succession. First he sent Jiri Kotvas and Cenk Oguz to the rail with flopped set versus straight versus flush draw when pairing up on the turn, before his nines held up against the pocket threes of Petr Kotik and the ace-king of Elena Litvinyuk.
Martin Kabrhel registered late and busted on his first bullet, the second bullet lasted all but a few minutes before the third attempt was a charm. The Czech version of William Kassouf, well known for his very active approach of speech play, doubled through Marian Uharcek with ace-king versus ace-jack and took the remaining chips right after with queens versus ace-five.
Among those to take a shot and bust throughout the day were King's Casino regulars Magic Man 558 and chiKKita banAAna, Ronald Van De Linde, Petr Targa, Igor Salomasov, Milan Topoly, and Michal Riczak with three bullets. Many of them jumped right into Day 1d, which wraps up later tonight.
