Friday Brings partypoker Grand Prix Germany Main Event Player Count to 1,646 Entries

Poker action is in full swing at the King’s Casino located in Rozvadov, the Czech Republic and this is clearly visible by the enthusiastic poker players currently participating in the long-anticipated partypoker Grand Prix Germany Main Event. The first three live starting flights already finished and this brought even more players to the overall players pool of the culminating event. Days 1b and 1c came to an end and this added two more chip leaders to the rank list.

The long-anticipated partypoker Grand Prix Germany Main Event saw its official starting day this Thursday and this locked all eyes on the famous poker location preferred by so many various poker festivals and world tours. It is known as the largest poker room in Europe and every day there is a poker event in progress. The second and third live starting flights which took place there already finished and this brought the total number of entries in the Main Event to some 1,646. This defines the poker event as one of the most popular since the beginning of this year and it should be taken into account that there are three more starting flights left.

Both Days 1b and 1c took place on Friday over the span of several hours and this set up the general pace of the poker action. Players had the entire day dedicated to them which increased the number of players on the felt. Day 1b added some 316 players to the field and throughout the day as many as 96 of them made a good use of their re-entry option.

Each of them had to pay a buy-in amounting to some €220 which is the general amount needed for this Main Event. The people responsible for the organization of the poker tournament stated that the low buy-in and the large guaranteed prize pool are expected to attract even more players to the King’s Casino. Only some 132 will continue ahead to Day 2 this Sunday.

Poker Action during Main Event First Stages

The chip leader among all players of this second live starting flight was Adam Twito from Israel who made it all the way to the top with his chip stack amounting to some 2,545,000. This made him not only the chip leader of this starting flight but also the overall leader in the first three starting days.

There were many local players present and this was not surprising to anyone as the Mani Event enjoyed quite the promotion in the months leading up to the official live Day 1a. This explains why the chip leader on Day 1c was a local player from the Czech Republic. Petr Kuběnka made it all the way to the top and managed to generate a total of 2,165,000 in chips at the end of the day.

This third opportunity to enter the tournament brought as many as 436 players to the field, but only 210 of them progress ahead to the next stage of poker action. This Saturday welcomed more players during the Day 1d and 1e as the Main Event approaches its Final Day.
