Day 2 at the partypoker World Poker Tour Merit Classic North Cyprus is about to begin with the final 180 players remaining from the 375 that entered the tournament (a new record for WPT Cyprus Main Events). The preliminary plan is to play five 90-minutes levels of poker today, but we will confirm that in due course.
The chip leader at the start of play is the young man who finished runner-up in this event last year. Albert Dahar is the Day 1B leader and he will start with 219,200 chips. Following hot on his heels are Dmitry Samoylenko (182,700), Andrey Pateychuk (161,800), Seref Anar (147,200), Ivan Sheptytskiy (144,100) and Sam Trickett (140,000).
With respect to re-entries, players still have the opportunity to re-enter, as long as they have not reached a maximum of four re-entries. This option is available until the end of the first level.
The cards will be in the air at 13:00 (local time). Tune back in that time to follow the action in live updates, chip counts, photos and videos from the WPT Live Updates team.
