As of 12.30 p.m. local time and onwards, some of the biggest names in poker will be back at the tables in the Hilton Hotel in Prague for the second edition of the 2017 PokerStars Championship Prague €25,500 Single-Day High Roller. Two days ago, it was Albert Daher who cut a three-way deal with Ryan Riess and Mikalai Vaskaboinikau to take home the trophy and lion's share of the prize pool.
The event attracted a field of 50 entries in total and the top seven spots took home a portion of the €1,225,000 prize pool. While Day 3 of the €5,300 Main Event kicks off near the money bubble, the High Rollers will once again determine their best in the 30-minute level format with 30 second shot clock. All participants receive 100,000 in chips and a single re-entry is allowed during the registration period, which lasts for eight levels and the following break.
