The Concord Masters 2019 continues to inspire the masses. Also yesterday, the poker fans ensured a full house again. For the first time, the guaranteed amount was already exceeded before the last starting day. A prize pool of € 700,000 is now possible by all means.
237 participants took part yesterday at the CCC Wien Simmering. They also bought 72 re-entries. 29 players had also qualified for the start via a Phase 1 tournament. Thereby, the Concord Masters accounts for 3,281 Phase 1 entries and 1,572 Day 1 entries ahead of the last starting day. € 513,027 are already in the prize pool. 185 players have successfully qualified for the final, among them are eight double qualifications.
