Welcome to Day 2 of the €1,100 Eureka Main Event at EPT Prague. The European Poker Tour has returned to Prague for the first time since 2019, and the first multi-flight event drew 3,155 runners in four starting days. The remaining 469 players will return at 12 p.m. local time to try and punch their ticket to Wednesday's Day 3.

Maxime Costas bagged the largest stack in the largest opening flight, and the Day 1c chip leader is followed very closely by Adam Polek, Emmanuel Kahan, and Mathias Sijander.
