The action of the day
With late registration available for the first four hours, there has been a constant influx of new players and entries to increase the size of the field. Over 200 entries were recorded during these four levels and three players dominated the opening stages, as Fahredin Mustafov, Nicolas Chouity and Artur Martirosian were the first to reach a seven-figure stack. That number has grown rapidly with notables such as Alessio Isaia, Bart Lybaert, Danilo Velasevic, Arunas Sapitavicius and recent WSOP Tour Main Event winner Andrea Ricci among the first notable victims.
Selahaddin Bedir ran his pair of sevens against the Kings of Lachezar Petkov and found no help getting out in the middle of the day.
Veselin Mareshki climbed into the limelight when he scored three double ups, but the Bulgarian businessman’s stack then disappeared in two huge pots in quick succession as he fell short against Milen Stefanov and Fadi Alakzam .
In the later stages, big names like Stoyan Madanzhiev, Manig Loeser, Paul Newey, Milad Oghabian, Aleksandr Merzhvinskiy, Tomas Jozonis and Niko Koop all left. Oghabian fell victim to Artur Martirosian’s hot run when he blocked a turn high jack with a gutshot draw and flush draw, but ran into the top two pair. From there, Martirosian used his big stack near the impending monetary bubble to consolidate his status as a chip leader overnight.
Once the last hands of the evening were over, the silver bubble was almost reached and five of the 94 remaining competitors will leave empty-handed. The penultimate day of the tournament begins again at noon local time and will aim to play until the nine-man final table.
