Hello and welcome to the second starting flight of the Eureka3 Bulgaria Main Event at the International Casino and Hotel Suites here at Golden Sands, Varna. Yesterday 185 players entered this €1,100 event and we really stuck our necks out by saying that Day 1B would have a bigger field!
It’s almost universally the case that the second starting flight will eclipse the first and with the tournament board showing 210 entries so far (late registration is open to the start of level 3) then it’s no different here in Bulgaria.
Helping to swell the numbers are a quartet of sponsored players, they are Team PokerStars Pro Marcin Horecki, PokerStars Team Online’s Dale Philip and Full Tilt Poker Ambassadors Hana Soljan and Andras Nemeth. The latter in particular is happy to be here.

Much like yesterday the players will have to negotiate nine one-hour levels to make Day 2, they’ll be a break every two levels and one-hour dinner break after level six. The man they have to catch is George Vranas who bagged up 120,100 at the end of Day 1A.
Cards are in the air here, blinds 25-50 and starting stacks of 20,000. Today, as with yesterday expect longer posts about once an hour, but keep an eye on the chip counts tab as I’ll also be keeping track of the names and notables throughout the day.
