Right after busting the €25,750 High Roller, the likes of Ramin Hajiyev, Oleksii Khoroshenin and Ole Schemion jumped right into the Main instead of opting for a day off after some intense high roller action. If you scratched yourself on the head why so many familiar high roller names entered the Main Event yesterday, worry no more because you'll find the answer today.
Why that is? It's really simple: today's €10,300 Single-Day High Roller tournament.
By entering Day 1a, they are able to enter today's €10,200 Single Day High Roller without missing a day of the Main Event.
The Single-Day High Roller starts at 12:30 and players will start with 100,000 in chips. Levels will have a duration of 30 minutes throughout with the first level starting at 500/1,000 (100-ante).
Last year, Steve O'Dwyer won the event for a staggering €327,030 after beating a field of 134 entries (99 uniques and 35 reentries), his 11th biggest score to date. We don't expect a field as big as the one last year as the international tournament schedule is quite busy at the moment, but we still anticipate an exciting day of poker.
PokerNews will be on the floor for coverage all throughout, from the first flop around 12:30 (3 hours from now) till the last river well after midnight.
