Day 2 of the event saw 29 survivors returning to the table and it was Boris Kuzmanovic from Zagreb who took down the event. The 29-year-old pro and cash game player reigned victorious after a heads-up versus Aviv Meiri and earned a pay of €37,791.
Down to the final three players, Kuzmanovic and Meiri broke a deal with 2016 EPT Barcelona Main Event champion Sebastian Malec, where €3,000 was left to be played for.
Santosh Srinivas was the only Indian to reach Day 2 of the event but unfortunately bubbled the event.
In the first-hand, Michael Uguccioni opened and Robert Zipf instantly called. Jean Paul Zaffran went all-in and Uguccioni asked for a count. Uguccioni then called and the latter folded.
The board opened: and Zaffran was knocked out from the event in 22nd place.
At the same time on a different table, Santosh Srinivas went all-in and Zoltan Ban called. Play resumed after the Malec vs Urban hand finished, they entered the showdown.
The board dealt providing no assistance to Srinivas and he was crowned the bubble boy of the event.
