The first of the last two flights of Event #5: THE COLOSSUS ended today with 70 players making it through to Day 2 tomorrow, Wednesday, November 1st. After more than 9 hours of play, Nebojsa Ankucic took the chip lead honor for Day 1i with 525,500 chips. This also means he has taken over the overall chip lead of all the players that have made it through to Day 2.

Day 1i had a total of 1,022 entries and 70 players made it through to Day 2. It was the second biggest flights of the series, only surpassed by Day 1j, which had 1,140 entries. Out of the 70 players today, second in the chip counts is Belgian Bjorn Bouwmans (420,500). The cash he will earn for this event will be his biggest ever and his second in his poker career. Thomas Hofmann is taking 407,000 chips with him, this is his first cash in Rozvadov so he will be looking forward to achieving some great results here.

Other notables making it through to Day 2 are two-time WSOP bracelet winner Kristen Bicknell (225,000), Master Classics of Poker winner Abdelhakim Zoufri (205,500) and Jaroslav Peter (143,500). Unfortunately, not everyone made it through today, players like Pedro Oliveira, Aneris Adomkevicius, Walter Treccarichi, Ivo Donev, Phil Hellmuth, William Kassouf, Manig Loeser and many others fell today.

Keep your eyes on PokerNews as the last flight ends today. Tomorrow all the action of Day 2 starts at 3 p.m. local time so make sure to come back to follow all the latest updates!

Bouwmans Shot Up

poolshir • Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

In the last hand of the day, Bjorn Bouwmans eliminated another player for a pot which could possibly have shot him up in the chip counts, all the way to the top.

Bjorn Bouwmans was all in and called by his opponent.

Bjorn Bouwmans: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{6-Hearts}

The board ran out {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{Q-Spades} - a set of queens for Bouwmans and he eliminated his opponent. He now has one of the bigger or maybe even the biggest stack of all the players aking it through to Day 2 via Day 1i.
