Two WSOP bracelets. Five WSOP Circuit rings. And over $4 million in WSOP earnings. But Martin Kabrhel isn't finished there, as he eyes a third bracelet in Event #10: €25,000 Platinum High Roller here at the 2021 World Series of Poker Europe.
He leads the final eight players in the biggest buy-in event at this year's WSOPE, and is well clear of nearest competitors Joni Jouhkimainen and Day 1 chip leader Jordan Westmorland.
The only other bracelet winner left in the field is Ole Schemion who won his first bracelet earlier this month, and now goes for his second in the space of three weeks.
Event #10: €25,000 Platinum High Roller Final Table
|Seat||Player||Country||Chip Count||Big Blinds|
|3||Martin Kabrhel||Czech Republic||9,180,000||92|
|8||Jordan Westmorland||United States||7,145,000||71|
The remaining eight players have all guaranteed themselves €57,095 and the winner will walk away with €518,430.
Day 2 Action
There were two more levels of late registration to start off Day 2, during which there was a flurry of new entries and re-entries including Paul Phua, Anatoly Filatov, Dzmitry Urbanovich and Didier Rabl.
Start-of-day chip leader Jordan Westmorland was soon joined at the top of the counts by Jack Sinclair, before a catching a huge bluff from Sinclair to double back through him and regain the lead.
He still held the lead with two table left as Sinclair bust, along with two-time bracelet winner Julien Martini and Phua.
When it came to the bubble, two players were eliminated on the same table with Matas Cimbolas missing out and Andrea Ricci locking up a min-cash. The beneficiary? Martin Kabrhel.
He still had time to eliminate Tom Vogelsang in tenth flush-over-flush to pad his chip lead, meaning he will be the man to beat when play resumes.
The final table will take place on Wednesday, December 1 with PokerNews bringing you all the live updates as we crown the latest WSOP champion.
