Greetings from the Rebuy Stars Savarin Casino as we prepare to kick off Day 1B of the €550 MPNPT Prague. Prague is one of the finest places you can find yourself playing poker – a beautiful city stuffed to the gills with history, compelling bars and restaurants and right now – one of Europe’s hottest poker tournaments ready for action.
What a day we had yesterday – there were risers and fallers during the day – the chip lead switching hands with dramatic regularity – the compass of good fortune eventually aptly landing on Pole Mateusz Warowiec. He won a series of large pots toward the end of the day, ultimately bagging up a monster 263,000 – good for the chip lead amongst the 33 remaining players. With a larger field anticipated today though, don’t be surprised if this total is handily eclipsed once we’ve worked our way through what will be a very interesting day.
There are a slew of fresh faces ready to take aim at the title here today – they will enjoy 30,000 chips and a whopping fourteen 45 minute levels to plan their route to the final table and beyond. There are unlimited rebuys available right up to the first level of Day 2 (level 15) and, a quick reminder, there is even a super-fast structured Turbo Day 1C on Saturday squeezed in before Day 2 continues at 17:30.
Ample opportunity then for the hordes of qualifiers, local poker aficionados and other assorted players to knuckle down and attempt to write their names into the annals of MPNPT history.
Good luck one and all. Cards are in the air – Day 1B is in effect!
