The MTS 250 is slowly but surely turning into the home stretch. Yesterday, a further starting day of the event took place at the Montesino, in which € 250,000 are guaranteed in the prize pool.
126 players (48 of these came from the phase 1 tournaments) started and bought 26 re-entries. 15 participants made it through the day and qualified for day 2. Among them were also Pavel Chalupka and Dimitrios Nanos.
The chip lead of Oswin Ziegelbecker was safe, only Radovan Krmela made it over the 2 million limit of chips. After 1,820 phase 1 entries and 188 Day 1 entries, € 81,400 are now in the prize pool which is guaranteed with € 250,000.
Armin Rezaei nabs the Highroller Event
Six players were still in the race after the starting day of the EinKa. Although Jessica Teusl busted Mr. Hu first, she also had leave, as did Mandi Glatz, who became the bubble boy.
In the end, Armin Rezaei was able to prevail after a long heads-up against Bernd Markfelder and won the EinKa. The two players had already agreed on a deal beforehand and only played for the remaining prize money of € 500 and the coveted trophy.
Armin Rezaei won € 7,290, Bernd Markfelder was happy about € 6,530.
