Pavel Plesuv Marches into 2017 WSOP Circuit King’s Casino Rozvadov €5,300 High Roller Day 2 as Chip Leader

The Europe’s largest poker room King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic is once again the hottest spot in the world. Millions of poker enthusiasts are heading to Czech Republic, which plays host to the World Series of Poker Circuit event for yet another year. The event is currently underway, running through 18th October. WSOP Circuit kicked off on 28th September and promised 21 days full of qualitative poker action.

Just before the start of the event, it was announced that there will be 14 WSOP gold rings and more than €3 million guaranteed prize pool up for grabs. Almost 3 weeks later, there are already players, who are celebrating their success in the event, but the most interesting part is yet to come – announcing the champions of the High Roller Event and the Main Event. Both events are currently underway, but the High Roller Event is coming to its closing stages.

The €5,300 High Roller Event started yesterday. As is usually the case with the high roller events, the poker contention attracted some of the most fearsome poker heavyweights, who were striving to win the lion’s share of the guaranteed prize pool and demonstrate their master skills. A total of 31 players and 2 re-entries appeared on the poker tables to cross swords. Day 1 of the event featured 9 levels each lasting for 45 minutes. The game took a brisk step, narrowing the field to just 22 players, who were confidently marching into Day 2.

Chip Counts

Pavel Plesuv was the player who bagged and tagged 166,700 in chips to head the pack of survivors. He did not relinquish his leadership despite Ognjen Sekularac’s late foray. However, Sekularac is not that far behind from the chip leader, holding a tower of chips worth 162,100. The favored Dutch-based poker players Sander van Wesemael is limping just behind Sekularac and Plesuv, entering Day 2 of the event with 133,100.

Other poker notables, who have won their chance to enter Day 2 of the event are Vadzim Lipauka with 102,200 and Felipe Ramos with 101,300. Pierre Neuville, Pavel Binar, Viliyan Petleshkov and Aleksandar Tomovic could not surpass the six-mark stack of chips, but they are still having good chances to turn the things to their advantage. Players entered Day 2 of the event earlier today and they will play down to a winner. The final day of the event resumed in the afternoon, featuring blinds of 600-1,200 and an ante of 200. The champion will go back home not only with a monstrous amount of money, but also with a WSOP-branded piece of gold.
