Yet another event of the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe is one step closer to crowning a champion at Europe's biggest poker arena in the King's Casino in Rozvadov. After 15 levels of 40 minutes each on Day 1, Event #7: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed generated a field of 187 entries and 35 players advanced to Day 2 with the top 29 spots paid.
Six players will miss out on a portion of the €358,853 prize pool and the early action is expected to be considerate and accelerate once the money bubble has burst. Leading the field into Day 2 is Hong Kong's Anson Tsayng with 931,000, followed by Ilya Bulychev with 748,000 and Quan Zhou (480,000). Other big stacks in the top 10 include Aaron Duczak (307,000), Daniel Rezaei (302,000) and Ryan Riess (259,000).
Shaun Deeb will multi-table as of 3 p.m. local time if he still has chips left over in the PLO Event, as he made the final table of Event #6 as third in chips. The redraw has Deeb's seat not far away from the feature table and the 2018 WSOP Player of the year contender number one will recommence Day 2 with 208,000. Other notables still in contention include Jan-Peter Jachtmann (224,000), Jason Gray (179,000), Chris Ferguson (171,000), Anthony Zinno (166,000), Chin Wei Lim (130,000), Roland Israelashvili (113,000), James Chen (95,000) and Allen Kessler (74,000).
The level duration for Day 2 increases to 60 minutes and the blinds will kick off at 3,000/6,000, the penultimate tournament day will conclude once there are eight players remaining. Make sure to tune back in as PokerNews will be your one-stop shop for the remainder of the WSOPE festival at King's Casino.
