After winning his first SCOOP title back in May for $201,606, Mirza "zazano" Muhovic has narrowly claimed the chip lead on Day 1 of the WCOOP-33-H: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, High Roller] after eliminating "despedespi33" in the final hand of the night. PokerStars had placed a guaranteee of $750,000 on the tournament but with 89 unique players flocking to the tournament and reentering 66 times, 155 entries were collected to create a prize pool of $775,000 in total.

A few months ago, Muhovic had to overcome a star-studded final table which included players like Joel "Odonkor1" Nordkvist, Jon "apestyles" Van Fleet, Benjamin "bencb789" Rolle, and Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis but none of those players are left in the final 14 players who have made it through to Day 2. Muhovic narrowly pipped Ole "wizowizo" Schemion to the chip lead as he bagged 4,328,322 to the 4,325,650 the German will bring back tomorrow.

Completing the top five are Luke "Bit2Easy" Reeves (4,160,732), Matthias "iambest2" Eibinger (4,086,295), and David "EzPaTuLa" Cabrera with 3,728,351 but Joao "Naza114" Vieira (3,233,139) and Sergei "Futti18" Koliakov (3,210,596) have also bagged an above average stack.

Today's Action

By the time the late registration period closed, there were 60 players left to battle it out for a spot in the top 17 as that's how many would get paid. As players couldn't reenter anymore, the eliminations started coming in quickly. Viktor "papan9_p$" Ustimov, /usa, Adrian "Amadi_017" Mateos, Patrick "pads1161" Leonard, Daris "DEX888" Pedes, Andras "probirs" Nemeth, and Sergi "srxakgirona" Reixach all used four bullets and all missed their targets.

Giorgios "Geokarak" Karakousis was eliminated by Muhovic when the tournament was down to the final three tables. Chris "Big Huni" Hunichen fell to Alexandru "steakaddict." Papazian and "vendes" and "Wildace_hun" followed shortly after. Thomas "MarToMchat" Boivin then busted to Simon "simon1471" Higgins to get the field two away from the money. It would take 20 minutes before Daniel "Oxota" Dvoress called Vieira's four-bet shove with ace-king and couldn't beat the nines of the latter.

Steve O'Dwyer
Steve O'Dwyer bubbled

The actual bubble would end up lasting forty minutes. Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer shoved his last eight big blinds in with ace-queen and was looked up by Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford who held aces. No danger on the flop for Beresford as he burst the bubble while the remaining players had all secured at least $12,447.

Aliaksei "ale6ka" Boika had the shortest stack after the bubble had popped and was also the first to cash when Mike "SirWatts" Watson took him out. Kahle "ROFLshove" Burns then busted to Eibinger when his nines couldn't beat the ace-jack of the latter as he flopped top pair, turned two pair, and rivered a full house. With a minute left in the day, "despedespi33" then lost his last chips to Muhovic.

Plan for Day 2

The players last played Level 20 and should be restarting at 7:05 p.m. CEST on Wednesday, September 9 with Level 21 which features a small blind of 25,000, a big blind of 50,000, and a running ante of 6,000. The level duration will increase to 25 minutes each at one point and the PokerStars Twitch stream will be bringing you cards-up coverage of this tournament with a 30-minute security delay.

This is what they are still playing for:


PokerNews will be bringing you the updates right here with a slight delay too to be in line with the stream so make sure to follow along.
