Event #5: €10,400 No-Limit Hold'em (Split Format)

Day 2 and Some Elbow Room

We've moved across the street to the casino today, and we're getting set up for Day 2 of this Split-Format, or "Mixed-Max" event. Today is the 6-max portion of the mix, and there'll be a little more elbow room at the tables for this moving day. At some point tomorrow morning, we'll have reduced this 72-player field to sixteen. That final group will all be in the money, and they'll be randomly drawn into a heads-up bracket to play it out for the bracelet. While making the money is nice, amassing chips will be a very important secondary goal; the chips you end with today are the chips you take into your first heads-up match.

Here's how the field lays out to begin this second day:
