Players are now back from their first break of the day. The field has grown to 90 players according to the big board or two more than the 88 attracted during Day 1a of the last MPN Poker Tour Main Event in Bratislava in April.
Based on this trend, it doesn’t appear to be the question anymore of whether the €150,000 guarantee will be met. Rather it will be how much higher than the guarantee the prize pool will eventually grow to.
Blinds are now at 150/300. In 45 minutes, when the blind levels increase again, antes will be introduced.
