The action resumes today with Day 1B of Event #1: €1,100 No-Limit Hold'Em MONSTER STACK. The World Series of Poker Europe kicked off yesterday inside King's Casino on Day 1A that saw 90 players take to the felt.
Defending champion, Ryan Hefter, bagged an impressive 208,000 but it was Ismael Bojang (268,500) leading the final 15 players at the end of the day. Many notables made an appearance on Day 1A but were unable to move on to Day 2. Those that will likely be back for another shot on Day 1B include Chris Ferguson, John Racener, and Alex Foxen who are all fighting for the Player of the Year title.
The action will begin at 2:00 P.M. and players will start with 20,000 chips. The blinds will start at 25/50 and will be 40-minutes in length. There will be a 20-minute break after every three levels and a 60-minute dinner break after level 8. Late registration will remain open until the beginning of level 9. There will be a total of 14 levels of play with play expected to end at around ~1:30 A.M.
