Tsakiris Doubles Through Scholten

Nível 18 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

An all in and call were overheard and Ioannis Tsakiris was the one at risk in the small blind, having received action from Freek Scholten, who was under the gun.

Ioannis Tsakiris: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Freek Scholten: {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}

Tsakiris was in a coin flip situation for his tournament life and wound up on the correct end as the flop came {5-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} with the turn {2-Hearts} and river {q-Hearts} coming safely behind it to complete the runout and earn him a double.

Bussieres Doubles Through Martini

Nível 18 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

Jonathan Bussieres got his stack of 136,000 in preflop from the hijack with {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}, dominating the {9-}{9-} shown down by Julien Martini on the button. The board ran out clean for Bussieres, who collected a little under half of Martini's chips.

Zub Eliminates Huber

Nível 17 : 3,000/6,000, 6,000 ante

Preflop action saw a single-raised pot fold to Josef Huber in the small blind, who called. Mikhail Zub was in the big blind and defended to take action three ways to a flop of {2-Spades}{q-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Huber checked and Zub put out a bet of 75,000. The original raiser folded and Zub check-raised all in. Huber called.

Josef Huber: {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Mikhail Zub: {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Huber's top pair was up against an even better top pair, leaving him in need of hitting a ten to stay alive.

"Give me the ten, please," requested Huber. The dealer did not comply, bringing a turn {9-Hearts} and river {q-Hearts} to complete the runout, giving both players trips but leaving Huber's ten kicker to be second best.

Stacks were counted and Huber's was totaled to be 155,000, while Zub's count was 167,000. Huber didn't notice it at first and kindly asked for the stack to be broken down again.

"Ah, I see it," he said a quick second later. "Good game," he added, shaking hands with Zub and leaving for the payout desk with a smile on his face.

Apicella-Albertini Eliminates Two

Nível 17 : 3,000/6,000, 6,000 ante

Three players were all in at Table 10, with [Removed:102] covering Stefanite Fechete, who had about 110,000, and Roman Skudar, who had about 40,000.

Apicella-Albertini: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Fechete: {8-}{8-}
Skudar: {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

The {q-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Hearts} was about as good as Apicella-Albertini could have hoped for on the flop. The {a-Hearts} turn and {5-Diamonds} river kept him best with kings full and the other two players headed for payouts.

Michaelis Eliminated on First Hand

Nível 17 : 3,000/6,000, 6,000 ante
Paul Michaelis
Paul Michaelis

The dealer had called for an open seat on Table 8 as Paul Michaelis, who entered the day as the shortest stack in the tournament, was eliminated on the first hand. He went all in under the gun and was up against Javier Zarco, who was in middle position.

Paul Michaelis: {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Javier Zarco: {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}

Michaelis found no help as the board came {a-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{q-Clubs}, giving Zarco Broadway and sending Michaelis to the payout desk, which is likely to be a pit stop on his way downstairs to defend his title in the Main Event which just got underway.

Welcome back to PokerNews coverage of the 2019 PokerStars EPT Prague €2,200 EPT National High Roller, where a quick, 10-hour turnaround after 14 hours of Day 1 action will bring 143 players back inside the Hilton Prague to compete for the top prize of €342,810 set to be earned throughout the course of the day.

Everybody has already locked up a first-level payout of €3,465 and another marathon of a day of is expected to get underway shortly. Conor Beresford (769,000) enters the day atop the counts, followed by Bjorn Kozenkai (703,000), the only other player to bag north of 700,000. Julijan Rados (615,000), Remi Wyrzykiewicz (609,000), and Frank Scholten (598,000) round out the top five.

However, heaps of strong competitors remain all over the leader board. Dietrich Fast (508,000) and Sam Grafton (451,000) headline the list of players starting Day 2 with more than double the average stack, with other above-average stacks like Chris Da-Silva (306,000) and Jean-René Fontaine also well in the mix.

There is also a long list of players coming into the day on the shorter side, having just squeaked into the money after a long, slow bubble to end Day 1. Viktor Blom (86,000), Rainer Kempe (54,000), Scott Margereson (50,000), and 2018 PokerStars EPT Prague Main Event champion Paul Michaelis (25,000) are just a few entering the day with stacks that would favor a quick double and beyond once play resumes.

Cards are back in the air at 12:30 p.m. local time, and play will continue until 143 becomes one. The clock will pick up from last night’s stopping point with eight minutes left in Level 17 (3,000/6,000/6,000) and levels will remain 40 minutes in length for the duration of the tournament. Twenty-minute breaks will occur at the end of every three full levels, and there will be a 75-minute dinner break upon the completion of Level 26.

Who will become the next EPT National High Roller champion? Stay tuned to PokerNews to find out.
