Markus Prinz Leads Going Into Day 3 of the WSOPC Main Event

Nasr El Nasr

At the conclusion of an elongated Day 2 of the WSOP International Circuit Main Event from Rozvadov, Markus Prinz leads the remaining 27 in their pursuit of the title, €183,350 in prize money, a much-coveted WSOP Circuit gold ring and a spot in the Global Casino Championship.

With 236 players returning, in addition to a number of players who bought in at the start of Day 2, a longer than usual day was needed to whittle down to a manageable size for Day 3.

One of the people who bought in at the start of the day was Czech anti-hero Martin Kabrhel. Fresh from winning the WSOPC 6-Max ring on Saturday night, a feat he achieved alongside firing two bullets in Day 1b, Kabrhel took to his seat like a duck to water. Kabrhel was still in action when the day drew to a close, and will by eyeing a second circuit ring in three days when play resumes tomorrow.

The prize pool was also confirmed today, with 71 of the 651 players making the money and a min-cash worth €3,610.

As the bubble drew ever nearer, the big names started to tumble with the likes of Pierre Neuville, Sam Grafton, Martin Staszko, Sebastian Malec and Marcin Horecki all falling short.

The unfortunate bubble boy was Karol Radomski whose pocket queens failed to hold against the ace-king of Nasr El Nasr. With that, the bustouts began in earnest, and despite the slightly longer day than usual, there was a steady trickle of eliminations as the night drew to a close.
