Day 1b of the 2021 WPT World Online Championships Main Event saw another 292 partypoker players stump up the $5,300 buy-in on September 5. Only 44 of those starters had chips in front of them when the curtain came down on proceedings, and nobody had more chips than Ole Schemion.
Schemion was on fire on September 5. He not only finished Day 1b of the $5 million guaranteed Main Event as the chip leader, but also won the $25,500 Super High Roller event for almost $390,000. Although Schemion topped the Day 1b chips counts, his 3,273,638 chips are only enough for fifth place overall with Day 1c and a turbo Day 1 still to come. Andras Nemeth is the man to catch right now.

A whole host of starts progressed with Schemion through to Day 2, which takes place on September 13. Bulgaria’s Georgi Sandev finished this flight armed with 3,102,351 betting tokens and has done his chances of WPTWOC Main Event glory no harm at all.
Brian Altman, a man with three WPT Main Event titles on his resume, finished Day 1b of this massive online tournament with 2,782,767 chips, enough for third place.
Also safely through are such luminaries as Team partypoker’s Joao Simao (2,543,762) and Mikita Badziakouski (787,617), Jans Arends (1,284,212), Juan Pardo Dominguez (1,251,666), Christian Rudolph (1,089,802), Timothy Adams (1,018,014), Pascal Hartmann (952,605), and Ali Imsirovic (622,246).
