Dia 1 Terminado
Action is over on Day 1 of EPT Online 19: $530 NLHE [8-Max], and the day ended with players on the stone bubble. There are 120 players coming back for Day 2 action, but only 119 of them will get paid. "julik433" leads the way into the second day of play with more than 2.5 million in chips, but Ognyan "cocojamb0" Dimov isn't far behind in second place. Andre "PTFisherman23" Marques rounds out the top three as the only other player with more than 2.4 million chips.
It took less than 90 minutes to hit the $500,000 guarantee and the 1,000 entry maximum, and it played quickly from there. Two hours later there were less than 400 players in the game, but one player who jumped in late and built a stack was PokerStars Team Online member Arlie "Prince Pablo" Shaban, who bagged a stack of more than 500K for Day 2.

Action of the Day
They got underway at 2:05 p.m. eastern time today, and hit the 1,000 entry maximum within the first hour and a half of play. That meant 119 players would share in the $500,000 prize pool and there were still 777 players in the game. Shaban wasn't the only member of the PokerStars Team in this one as ambassador Kalidou "KalidouSow" Sow also tried his hand. He busted early however, leaving Shaban to carry the flag.
Daan "DaanOss" Mulders ended the day in 38th place with $2,109 in bounties, but he spent a good portion of the middle part of the day near or at the top of the counts, while Simon "DaDumon" Grabenschweiger got there in a few spots where he was dominated to bag a 21st place stack of more than 1.25 million, and pocket more than $1,300 in bounties so far.
Action on Day 2 gets underway at 2:05 p.m. eastern time tomorrow, and they'll play down to a winner before they finish. Check back here as PokerNews will be there till the final hand is dealt to bring you the action.

"ifyourgood" raised early, and after a call, Joel "Odonkor1" Nordkvist reraised big to 546K from the small blind. "ifyourgood" shoved and Nordkvist tank-called the 5K they had behind. He was playing ace-king, but was up against kings. Nordkvist hit a flush on the river, but that card also gave "ifyourgood" a boat for the win.

"ifyourgood" took some chips from "Rusty Punchy" blind on blind when they got there for top pair. In the next hand, "TheRealGeez" stacked Deividas "Deividas K" Kvaselis in a coin flip where their eights held against the ace-king of Kvaselis.
