Huge turnout at WPT Cambodia Main Event Day 1B with 216 entries; Mitja Rudolf tops the counts

WPT Cambodia at NagaWorld Phnom Penh is on course for a massive prize pool with 216 runners (175 uniques, 41 re-entries) turning up at Main Event Day 1B. Combine that with the 188 entries of Day 1A, the highlight event is already at 404 with one more starting day to follow.

Today’s heat kicked off swinging with the US$ 250K guarantee breached in the opening level. At the end of regulation play, only 43 bagged up led by Slovenia’s Mitja Rudolf with  384,000 in chips. This put him in 3rd rank overall. Day 1A leader Jingjing Ke still holds court up top. She racked up a solid 486,000 stack while Didrik Mantor piled up 392,000.

During the late stages of play, big pots were tabled around the floor. One of them was a three way collision with Rudolf shipping it holding AsQd top pair on a board Qc{5d3h5s6h to deny AdKd and Jd9d. He dragged in another one with 10s10h set on a board Ks10d4hQs3d.

Piling up a close second was WSOP 2019 The Closer event winner, India’s Abhinav Iyer with 367,000. Iyer sent a player out dizzy by cracking the nuts straight with a full house on the river. This enormous pot catapulted Iyer to the leader’s zone.

Among the players that advanced with the leaders was Season XVI WPT APAC Player of the Year, Pete Yen Han Chen. He bagged 164,000.
