After almost nine hours of play on Day 1 of the 2020 PokerStars Stadium Series Freezeout Weekly Final - High: $530 NLHE [8-Max], 145 players out of 2,101 entries have made it through to Day 2. The tournament originally had a guarantee set of $1,000,000 but this was easily surpassed by all the players who entered to create a prize pool of $1,050,500 in total. This meant that 255 players would cash for at least $1,162 while the winner will walk away with $157,004 on Tuesday, July 14.

Claiming the Day 1 chip lead is Douglas "dougalopes" Lopes with 5,291,991in chips. He collected most of those chips when he took out two players in the last level of the day. Both "IPAJB" and "ThugWaffle" fell victim to him in two seperate hands to take Lopes to over five million in chips. Lopes is followed by another familiar name in the poker world, Andreas "mrAndreeew" Berggren takes second place on the podium today with 4,910,811. Berggren had turned trips against the two pair of "gruzdev7777" for a pot of almost 1.5 million. Completing Day 1's top five are Russia's "Aleks Better" (4,120,769), Germany's "PokerHorst" (3,739,289), and Ururguay's "emifran99" (3,511,626) for a truly diverse selection of players.

But there's still loads of poker talent left in the field, familiar names and faces like Joao "sydens" Sydens, Xiaoxiao "W.Leung" Niao, Patrick "Nelepo10" Ulysséa, Dante "dantegoyaF" Goya, Luis Henrique "Lui$starPRO$" Rocha, Leocir "leocir25" Carneiro, Jakub "Olorionek" Michalak, Steven "SvZff" van Zadelhoff, Breno "Breno2728" Drumond, Michael "blazinchron" Bailey, and Manuel "fellatiado" Ruivo all finished in the top 50 of the counts.

The UK's "saysommin" bubbled the tournament when there were 256 players left while "QcKimo" was eliminated at the same time by Alisson "heyalisson" Piekazewicz. But as "QcKimo" had the bigger stack, they claimed the first min-cash of the day. Christian "chry1982" Sare, Juanki "B4NKR0LL3R" Vecino, Alexandre "Cavalito" Mantovani, Brunno "botteonpoker" Botteon, Daris "DEX888" Pedes, Shawn "buck21" Buchanan, Igor "OMGitshunt" Soyka, and Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves are some of the notable players who all cashed but didn't make it to Day 2.

When the players return on Monday, July 13 at 5:05 p.m. CEST for Day 2, they have all secured at least $1,710 but will all be aiming to make the final table which will be played on Tuesday. The remaining players will finish the last ten minutes of Level 24 which features a small blind of 17,500, a big blind of 35,000, and a running ante of 4,500. Level duration will remain at 20 minutes each until the final 40 players have been reached. Play will end when there are nine players left.

The PokerStars Twitch Stream will start their coverage from Day 2 with hole cards being shown on a 30-minute security delay but PokerNews will be here to bring you all the action as it happens so make sure to return!
