Welcome to Day 1b of Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em here at the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe. Yesterday's Day 1a flight saw 381 runners take to the felt. Today is expected to be much of the same, if not more. If the overall number surpasses 608, this will be the largest-ever WSOP Europe event. That goal is very near and it's expected to be reached.
After the nine levels played yesterday, Australian Andrew Hinrichsen finished on top of 63, 900 in chips. There were 54 players remaining at the end of the day. That group will join up with the remaining players from this flight for Day 2 on Monday at noon.
With plenty of big names making Day 2 of Event #1: €2,680 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em yesterday, but not advancing to Day 3, today's field should be packed with well-known and recognizable players.
Play kicks off at noon and it's going to be another great day of poker. Be sure to stay tuned right here to PokerNews for all the live coverage.
