The first of three starting days for the WPT’s Prague event kicked off yesterday and when the book finally closed a total of 115 players were in the mix for the title.
A host of European and international talent were on display with American Shannon Shorr doing his best to guide the following pack throughout most of the day. His 191,800 finishing stack was topped by Finland’s Pasi Heinanen who bagged 193,800 to top the leaderboard at the end of Day 1A. While some top names scaled the chip counts, a host hit the rail, including: Ana Marquez, Jonathan Duhamel, Faraz Jaka and Bryn Kenney. However, being a re-entry event it’s likely many of those who took a dive yesterday will reset themselves today and try to make it through the second starting day. 1 Pasi Jaako Heinanen 1938002 Shannon Shorr 1918003 pawel brzeski 1731004 Sebastien Garrasi 1439005 Oleksii Khoroshenin 1298006 Yngve Hella Steen 1092007 Roman Korenev 959008 Marco Andre Lang 937009 michael watson 8840010 Julian Herold 84100The WPT’s Prague offering is just one of a number of poker events taking place in Prague at the moment, with the WPT and GSOP also scheduled to take place in the next two weeks.Indeed, if there’s one place in the world you should be at the moment if you’re a tournament grinder it’s the Czech capital.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
