The third and penultimate day of the PokerStars.net Eureka 6 Rozvadov €1,100 Main Event gets underway in 90 minutes from now at 2 p.m. local time with 63 players remaining out of a 682-entry strong field. All of them have at least €2,120 locked up for their efforts, but the eyes are set on making Eureka history and claiming the first-place payout of €124,890.
The bubble burst just prior to the dinner break yesterday evening and after that, the action continued fast and furious. This is also the likely scenario for the restart of Day 3 at blinds 5,000-10,000 and a running ante of 1,000, as two third of the participants are below average. Sitting in the top spot is Daniel Rose after claiming two big three-way pots at the end of Day 2 and the Berlin-based player is the only one above one million with astonishing 1,570,000.
Other big stacks include Martin Ilavsky (841,000), David Urban (837,000), Ivan "Negriin" Luca (701,000), online qualifier Alexandru Farcasanu (643,000), EPT regular Jonas Lauck (614,000) and Peter Siemund (436,000). Also still in are Hannes Speiser (326,000), Amir Mozaffarian (308,000), Grzegorz Wyraz (249,000), Dominik Paus (207,000), Maria Lampropoulos (119,000), Marek Blasko (72,000) and EPT7 Vienna champion Michael Eiler (17,000).
Goal of Day 3 is reaching the official final table of the last six and the levels last 60 minutes each. Tomorrow's final will then be streamed on the King's Casino website and the PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand to cover all the action until a new champion is crowned.
