Pulkit Goyal among top stacks at WSOP Circuit Main Event
A few days back, the WSOP Circuit Main Event kicked off at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov where 768 entries participated across two starting flights and now, at the end of Day 2, just 71 players remain. A number of known names are in the field including India's Pulkit Goyal who is among the top 10 stacks of the night.
Goyal has remained active right through the series and his dream of winning a WSOP Circuit Ring is alive, being the only Indian left in the field. Currently, he is seventh in the chip lead with a stack of 1.06 million while the chip leader is Aliaksandr Shylko from Belarus, who sits pretty at the top with 2.6 million in chips.
The €1,700 Main Event generated a massive prize pool of €1,130,880 and this is to be shared among the top 77 players with a min-cash of €3,500, which means all the remaining players are in the money. With a healthy stack, Goyal will be aiming for nothing less than the top prize of €205,000 for the ultimate winner. He likes this venue as he also finished 5th in the TIPS Main Event earlier this year.
The WSOP Europe series has simultaneously begun at King’s Casino in Rozvadov where €22+ million is up for grabs and the WSOP Circuit Main Event will also pay out the top ten players with WSOPE Main Event tickets. Some of the known names to hit the rails during Day 2 include the defending champion Martin Kabrhel, Marius Gicovanu, Maria Lampropulos, Viktor Blom, and Bertrand Grospellier.
