Stojanovic Builds Massive Stack on WPT Vienna Day 1B

Day 1B saw a larger field turn out for the World Poker Tour Vienna Main Event, as 233 new or re-entering players took their shot at building a big stack for the second day of play.

In the end, one player would ultimately toward above the field. Darko Stojanovic didn’t just build a big stack; he built one that was more than 100,000 chips ahead of the field, and doubled up all but four other Day 1B players. With 320,000 chips, Stokanovic has more than 100,000 more than the second-placed Carsten Jeppe, and should be in good position to make a deep run even if he’s not incredibly lucky on Day 2.

Several former champions ended up on the rail for good on Day 1B, ending their chances at making a run at a second title. McLean Karr was one of Stojanovic’s victims, while Guillaume Darcourt, Scott Seiver and Sean Jazayeri were also eliminated during the day. For some players, this meant losing two buy-ins, as several of the eliminated players had already had a rough Day 1A. Other eliminated players included Sorel Mizzi and Tristan Wade.

As always, though, a few big names slipped through to Day 2. Steve O’Dwyer continued his fantastic run of form by making it to the second day of play, as did Yevgeniy Timoshenko and Michael Tureniec. Sam El Sayed had a particular good Day 1A, bagging 182,700 chips to put him in 4th place for the day. Faraz Jaka is also among the leaders heading into Friday’s Day 2.

In the end, 182 players have made it through to Day 2, 45 of which will make the money. The top prize has been set at $410,519, with the minimum cash being worth $8,855.
