Welcome to Day 1B of the party poker World Poker Tour Merit Classic North Cyprus.
150 players have already made their mark on this great competition – 22 of them tried twice – and we are expecting an even bigger field today.
The goal will be to survive, but deep down inside that poker gut will be a dream to top the 161,800 that the Day 1A chip leader accrued yesterday.
That haul belonged to Andrey Pateychuk, one of four Champions Club members who made it through to Day 2: Dominik Nitsche, Dmitry Gromov and James Dempsey joining the Russian in the Day 2 bag.
Today’s action will begin at 13:00 (local time) and players will once again have the opportunity to re-enter should they fail to impress with their first bullet.
