The three-day tournament had a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million but already surpassed that at the end of Day 1, with 126 entrants and a prize pool of $1.3 million.

"yara777" of Ukraine walked away from Day 1 as the tournament chip leader with a stack of 2.3 million, followed closely by "Grus/Snus" of Sweden and "#Naktro91" of Andorra.

PokerStars ambassador Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis, who took second yesterday in the WCOOP-80-H: $10,300 NLHE [8-Max, Progressive KO, High Roller] for his biggest-ever MTT cash of $172,793, was also in the field but did make it to the end of Day 1.

Late registration will remain open until the beginning of Day 2. Only 14 places will be paid if there are less than 132 entrants in the tournament.
