Who's the Day 1a Man? Schaaf(sma)!

The last ever MPNPT Day 1a is now a mere memory, its 145 entries (127 unique players and 18 re-entries) reduced to just 51 bags full – or not so full – of chips.

Players who joined us at the Casino Gran Madrid Colón today included Hendon Mobster Barny Boatman, MPNPT winners Alex Hendriks, Uku Valner, and Keimo Suominen, serial MPNPT finalist Mateusz Moolhuizen and his other half, Instagrammer Dehlia De Jong, and Betsson Ambassador Daiva Byrne.

Chip leader at the end of play is 32Red qualifier Remco Schaafsma on 189,000. Other players who made it to Saturday’s Day 2 without the hassle of having to play Day 1b as well include the aforementioned Barny Boatman (30k), Daiva Byrne (72.5k), Uku Valner (52k) and Keimo Suominen (63k).

Tomorrow the €500 + €50 Main Event continues, Day 1b getting under way at the earlier time of 2pm. In addition, from 5pm we’ll be streaming live from the feature table with the commentary duo of dreams, Padraig Parkinson and Jesse May.

Away from the Main, tomorrow boasts a plethora of side events including the €100 NL Turbo re-buy at 8pm and the €220 Gran Casino Madrid Cup at 7pm, as well as the ever-popular Fish Party from 5pm with a ton of MPNPT merch up for grabs. In addition, more than 150 lucky MPNPT players are being treated to a truly VIP experience at the La Liga Atletico Madrid v Granada match on Saturday afternoon at the world-famous Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

We’ll be back at the Casino Gran Madrid in less than 12 hours’ time for the last ever MPNPT Day 1b – sad face emoji. Until then, though, we understand that the player party is still in slightly messy full swing…
