Yesterday, Day 1 of the Concord Million 2019 was on the programme in numerous poker casinos throughout Austria. € 422,450 are in the prize pool guaranteed at € 1,000,000. That is clearly more than at the same time last year.
The largest crowd was found at the CCC Wien Simmering. 66 participants started there and bought 14 re-entries, a further 32 players had qualified through Phase 1.
Successful interim result
The interim result after the first big starting weekend is astounding. 2,999 Phase 1 entries and 545 Day 1 entries result in prize money of € 422,450 collected up to now. Ten players are already in the final, 183 have made it to Day 2.
Newcomers include Florian Schleps in place 11, Markus Loidl in place 18, Markus Ganglbauer in place 72, Heinz Edy in place 79 and Stefan Raschbauer in place 96.
Silviu Nemes defended his chip lead with 1,587,000 chips. Andreas Heissenberger came close to him yesterday with 1,447,000 chips.
Day 2 will start today
Today, Day 2 is on the programme throughout Austria. The start is at 3 pm at Wien Simmering, Linz, Innsbruck, Bregenz and Graz, at 5 pm, Salzburg and Kufstein will be added. Registration for the Concord Million 2019 is still possible until the tournament starts!
Day 1 Direct in Opatija did not materialise yesterday - the players rather decided to travel to Vienna together next week.
