Arturs Scerbaks, 4th in Chips After Day 1

After seven and three quarter hours, Day 1 is now in the books, and 44 players, from an original field of 733 entries, still have chips in play. Japan's "shiromeneko" leads the way into Day 2 as the only player with more than 5 million chips. Many of those chips came in a huge flip near the end of the day where their ace-king got there against the sixes of "cebulsky_pl".

"shiromeneko" has the big stack by far going into Day 2. Second place "texaspl" from Poland has just over 3.7M, while fellow Pole "0Adas0" is 3rd with just over 3M. Arturs "ARTSchGamble" Scerbaks, Joao "Naza114" Vieira, and PokerStars Ambassador Kalidou "KalidouSow" Sow round out the top counts.

The Day's Action

Day 1 of EPT Online 12: $1,050 NLHE [6-Max] got underway at 1:05 p.m. eastern time today, and after nearly five hours of registration, the 733 entry field blew past the $500K guarantee. By the time it was all tallied, 95 players would share in the $733,000 prize pool.

It took about an hour and a half to play down to the money, with Eduardo "Eduardo850" Silva busting in 96th on the bubble. Julio "julioassp" Ribeiro busted in the same hand during the hand-for-hand play, but got paid out the first minimum cash because he had the biggest stack to start the hand.

That left about 90 minutes in the day, but action didn't slow. They went through more than half the field before Day 1 came to a close with 44 left. While PokerStars Team Online member Ben "Spraggy" Spragg didn't make it very far today, his fellow Team Online member Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis bagged a Day 2 stack of more than 1 million chips, joining ambassador Sow on the final day of play.

Action for Day 2 resumes tomorrow at 1:05 p.m. eastern time, and the final 44 players will play down to a winner. Come back tomorrow as PokerNews covers the action as they play down to a champion in EPT Online 12.

Arturs "ARTSchGamble" Scerbaks raised to 45K under the gun, and Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis called from the button, as did "cebulsky_pl" from the big blind. The flop came {2-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and they all checked to the {4-Hearts} turn where "cebulsky_pl" bet 60K and only Veldhuis called to the {8-Spades} river. Veldhuis had ace-jack, but was behind the king-queen for "cebulsky_pl".

However, two hands later "cebulsky_pl" three-bet the button after a raise from "shiromeneko" and a call, then called off when "shiromeneko" shoved a covering stack. It was a race with "shiromeneko" playing ace-king against the sixes of "cebulsky_pl", and an ace on the flop was enough for "shiromeneko" to collect the bounty and a 4M+ stack.

"ArtFartPlay" Chips Up

• Nível 20: 10,000-20,000, 2,500 ante

"Sintoras" raised under the gun to 40K, and was called by "ArtFartPlay" as well as "0Adas0" on the button. The flop came {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} and it checked to "0Adas0" bet 57.75K and got two callers. They all checked the {2-Spades} turn, and when the river came {7-Hearts}, "ArtFartPlay" bet 108,240 after a check, and got folds.

Sam "Str8$$$Homey" Greenwood: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}
"ArtFartPlay": {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Board: {2-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

The Bounty Hunt

• Nível 19: 7,000-14,000, 1,750 ante

"0Adas0" leads the chip counts, and they've amassed a healthy bounty total of $3,500 along the way, but they aren't leading the bounty race. That honor goes to "texaspl" who has banked almost $4,300 in bounties so far, as well as Pedro "NutsInMacadá" Ivars and "cebulsky_pl" who have also won more than $4,200 in bounties.
