Day 1 of the €3,200 No Limit Hold'em Shootout has come to an end after the 256 players were reduced to just 30, all of whom are now in the money and guaranteed to take home at least €6,913 for their efforts in this tournament.
The first player to progress from their table was Vanessa Selbst, who overcame the likes of Dominik Nitsche, Lari Sivho and the great Erik Seidel on her way to Day 2. Other notable players who will return for a three-handed shootout tomorrow include David Peters, Taylor Paur, Chad Brown, Tobias Reinkemeier, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Terrance Chan and Freddy Deeb.
Amongst those who bought in but failed to navigate through the extremely tough field included Johnny Chan, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanui, David Williams, Kevin MacPhee, Ben Lamb, Isaac Haxton and Sorel Mizzi. The list of notable players who did not make it through could fill this page there were that many!
Play resumes at 1500 CET and will see the blinds rolled back to 500/1,000/100a and play will be across ten three-handed tables. Join us tomorrow for all the action, as it happens, here on PokerNews.
