Day 1B of the $3 million guaranteed WPT Online Series Main Event saw another 394 players take a shot at becoming a WPT champion. Only 59 of those hopefuls made it through to Day 2, although there are some legitimate superstars among those 59 players.
Bulgaria’s Stoyan Obreshkov finished Day 1B not only with the flight’s chip lead but with the overall chip lead with only one flight remaining. Obreshkov turned his 200,000 starting stack into a tournament-leading 4,555,237 by the time the curtain came down on proceedings.
Yuri Dzivielevski (lead photo) is another elite player who progressed to Day 2 at the first attempt. The super-talented Brazilian returns to the action on Day 2 with 3,779,407 chips and with a realistic chance of winning this special tournament.
Team partypoker’s Joao Simao (2,076,678) will be pleased with how his Day 1 went thanks to finishing with enough chips for sixth place. Others to look out for on Day 2 include the likes of Espen Myrmo (1,986,085), Jon Van Fleet (1,821,978), Chanracy Khun (1,795,685), Ioannis Angelou Konstas (1,475,080), and Christoph Vogelsang (1,166,842).
