After 19 levels of poker action, Day 1a of Event #3: €1,350 NLH Mini Main Event wrapped up in the early hours of the morning on Tuesday, November 23 in Europe's biggest poker arena at the King's Resort in Rozvadov.
A total of 321 player registered for the first starting flight in the third gold bracelet event of the 2021 World Series of Poker Europe, which added €385,200 into the prize pool. The tournament has a guarantee of €600,000 and with over half of that already met, along with two more Day 1's to play out, it is heavily expected that figure will be eclipsed.
