The second day of the 2021 World Series of Poker Europe festival filled Europe's biggest poker arena with card enthusiasts from near and far. Alongside a big field on Day 1b of the Event #1: €350 NLH Opener, the second tournament of the series kicked off as well. The first of two starting days of Event #2: €550 Pot-Limit Omaha attracted a field of 199 entries, consisting of 132 unique players and 67 re-entries.

Upon completion of 18 levels of 30 minutes each, only 19 players bagged chips for the night with Orhan Sen (494,000) holding a narrow lead over Luc Ramos (490,000). Close behind are also Anders Auset (463,000) and Karol Bogusz (462,000). Big stacks furthermore belong to Krzysztof Magott and Alfredo Vega Meister, who have both regularly participated in Pot-Limit Omaha tournaments at the King's Resort in Rozvadov.

Another 11 players cashed for at least €917 as the top 30 spots locked up a portion of the prize pool already.

Magott re-entered just before the end of the late registration and seemed nearly unstoppable on his way to the top of the leaderboard. However, he lost a bigger pot in the final hands of the night to concede the top spot. During the same period, Orhan Sen claimed several pots in quick succession to finish at the top of the chip counts on Day 1a.

Luc Ramos was involved in an all-in showdown on the Day 1a money bubble to end up with a big stack. Shortly after, Miha Pirsic was eliminated on the stone-cold bubble. Notables who cashed but came up short of making Day 2 were Hen Rosilio, Bjorn Verbakel, and Dario Alioto.

Alioto Eliminated; Vega Meister Gets a Stack for Day 2

Dario Alioto raised to 20,000 and Alfredo Vega Meister then reraised the pot to 69,000.

"Are you nuts?" Serok Kilic in the big blind sighed, then called. "I either get a stack for Day 2 or try again tomorrow," Vega Meister replied.

Alioto called all-in for 42,000 and the flop fell {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Kilic check-called the shove of Vega Meister for 89,000 to create the following three-way showdown.

Dario Alioto: {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Alfredo Vega Meister: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Serok Kilic: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{x-Spades}

The {4-Diamonds} turn and {a-Spades} river completed the board as Kilic jumped out of his seat in loud celebration. "Jesus Christ," the dealer exclaimed but Vega Meister quickly pointed out he had made a wheel to win the pot while Alioto was eliminated.

Five More Hands for Day 1a

zedmaster84 • Niveau 18: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Jelka Andelic drew for the final hands of the night and visibly rooted for five hands. She indeed picked the five and that's how many hands will be played prior to bagging and tagging.

Andelic Chips Up

zedmaster84 • Niveau 18: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Ricardo Busch defended the big blind and invested another 20,000 on the {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{2-Spades} flop when facing Jelka Andelic from an early position. The {2-Hearts} turn was checked and Busch check-folded the {4-Diamonds} river near instantly when Andelic bet just over 50,000.

In the meanwhile, Serok Kilic has more than doubled up his stack on another table as well.

Bogusz Becomes Contender for the Chip Lead

zedmaster84 • Niveau 18: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

"You missed the action, it was a lot of raises," Ricardo Busch said. On a heads-up flop of {j-Spades}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, a battle of the blinds saw Jelka Andelic invest more than half of her remaining stack. Karol Bogusz then reraised and that forced an expensive fold from Andelic.

"Show the bluff!" Busch joked but no cards were revealed.

By claiming the pot without showdown, Bogusz leaped above half a million in chips.

Kilic Cannot Beat Sevo

zedmaster84 • Niveau 18: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Vlado Sevo bet the {10-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} turn for 45,000 and was called by Serok Kilic on the button. Both checked the {6-Diamonds} river and Sevo tabled the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}. Kilic double-checked the board, sighed and mucked his cards while several players at the table shook their head.

"Fourty-five on the turn, eh? No fear," Alfredo Vega Meister joked to his table neighbour Sevo.
