Day 1B of the World Poker Tour Amsterdam €3,300 Main Event drew a larger field of 118 entrants, compared to Tuesday’s 80, and half of them return for Day 2. Leading the flight, and overall leader, is Georgios Zisimopoulos with 222,200.

Day 1B’s top ten didn’t produce any household names but Steve O’Dwyer, Giacomo Fundaro, Richard Milne and Jake Cody all advanced to Day 2. Kevin Eyster, Lex Veldhuis, Chris Moneymaker and Scott Davies also advanced but return with short stacks.

Day 2 has a total of 96 returning players and an overall field of 198 entrants. Players can re-enter up until the start of play on Day 2 so that number, and prize pool, could rise. 

Cards hit the air for Day 2 at 2 pm local time and they’ll play eight levels before ending for the day.
