World Series of Poker Circuit Spring Festival Progresses ahead with €550 Monster Stack Day 1C

This Friday was one of the warmest days this March and the reason for that might be partly because King’s Casino, located in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic became the arena of heated up poker rivalry. More people joined the poker tables of the Monster Stack tournament which promises to grant one of them with the coveted WSOPC Ring and this proved to be one of the more interesting events this Friday.

The buy-in for the second Ring event in WSOPC Spring Festival reaches €550 which in turn promises a guaranteed prize pool amounting to €200,000. Each player commenced their action on Day 1A or any of the starting flight with a chip stack of 50,000. This promises them the freedom to operate with the chips as the wish and guarantees riveting poker action for everyone involved. Day 1C is the third initial starting flight out of four, according to the rich schedule of the poker festival, whereas this Sunday is going to see the official Day 2 take place, which is also when the final table will happen.

A total of 100 players entered the race for the throne and following several mishaps, 12of them decided to re-enter the tournament for a second chance to grab the coveted trophy ring. This meant that at the end of the third initial flight there were some 239 players survived and progressing towards the final day of poker action. It is needless to say that this will provide some spectacular poker performance on Sunday while everyone will have the chance to showcase their potential. Only 47 players survived Day 1C and they will meet the rest of the survivors on the final day.
