More than one hour before the start of the final flight, the screens already show 140 entries for Day 1H of the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe Event #1: €550 COLOSSUS No-Limit Hold'em and the guaranteed prize pool of €1,000,000 will be easily surpassed thanks to at least 800 entries in the earlier flight.
All those that fail to make it through Day 1G have one last chance to book their seats for Day 2 and the registration period and single re-entry is available until the end of level 10. All participants receive 25,000 in chips with 18 levels of 30 minutes each in total scheduled for tonight, bagging and tagging will take place in the early morning hours.
The current chip leaders after six of the eight flights combined all come from Day 1F in Nico Mussini (918,000, Jan Bendik (812,000) and Rifat Gegic (712,000). They will return with more than or just shy of 100 big blinds for Day 2, as the action recommences with 19 minutes left in level 18 at blinds of 4,000/8,000 and a big blind ante of 8,000.
