They are just moments away from the beginning of the first starting flight of the 2020 Unibet Open Dublin €1,100 Main Event. Day 1a kicks off at noon giving players their first opportunity to bag a stack for Day 2. The starting stack today will be 30,000 chips, and they’ll play ten one hour levels before they stop for the day.
There are still two more chances for players to build a stack in the Main Event. Friday will feature two chances to get in the game, with a normal Day 1b flight starting at noon, and a turbo Day 1c runs at 9PM with 20 minute levels. In addition to the Main Event flights, there’s lots of side action going on as well. The High Roller began last night, and plays into Day 2 today. Robbie Toan leads the way into Day 2, with Max Silver close behind with the second stack. Entry is still open on the High Roller, so expect some of the players from yesterday’s Open-er to jump in to Day 2. Espen Jorstad has already paid the entry, after coming third in last night’s Battle Royale event.
Both the Battle Royale and the Open-er finished last night. The Battle Royale took quite awhile before Dara O’Kearney ended up bubbling in 4th place. Espen Jorstad took third place, and after a single hand of heads up play, special guest Viktor Blom took down the €1,500 win over Unibet Ambassador and stream commentator David Vanderheyden . The Open-er was supposed to be a two-day event, but they played down pretty quickly, and ended up making a deal at the end, with the winner, Alex Kulev, taking home €3,725.
In addition to the Main Event, and Day 2 of the High Roller today, there will be a NLH Turbo event running at 4PM, as well as another satellite for the Main Event kicking off at 7:30PM. Stay tuned here for action throughout Day 1a of the Main.
