In around 90 minutes from now at 2 p.m. local time, the 2017 PokerStars Festival Rozvadov will see 29 hopefuls return to the poker area of the King's Casino for Day 2 of the €2,200 High Roller. That's how many players bagged up chips last night after 14 levels of 40 minutes each, and only the top 20 spots of the 118-entry strong field will share a portion of the €228,920 prize pool.
Leading the field thus far is Russia's Daniil Kiselev with 286,000, followed by Anestis Anagnostidis (239,500) and Dorin Rauta (236,500). 2016 EPT Barcelona champion Sebastian Malec (223,000), PokerStars Team Online Pro Randy "nanonoko" Lew (186,500) and Antoine Vranken (147,000) also made it into the top 10 overnight, while €1,100 Main Event bubble boy Pietro Errante Parrino (136,000), €5,300 King's High Roller runner up Eugene Katchalov (72,500), Aviv Meiri (66,000) and [Removed:197] (42,000) are also still in contention.
The tournament is scheduled to play down to a winner, and with levels lasting 40 minutes each, this may only be done in the early morning hours. Action resumes in level 15 with blinds of 2,000 / 4,000 and a running ante of 500. A minimum cash is worth €3,437, while the victory comes with a payday of €47,929 and the elusive PokerStars Festival High Roller trophy.
The PokerNews live reporting team will provide all the action until the last river card is dealt, so make sure to tune back regularly. As of 12.30 p.m. local time, the final day of the €1,100 Main Event kicks off as well and you can follow the updates here.
