Ian Munns Leading WSOPE Main Event After Day 2Published on September 28th, 2009 8:39 pm EST
Day 2 of the World Series of Poker Europe main event is now in the books, with 94 of the original 334 entrants managing to stay alive for Day 3.
Ian Munns looks to be the tournament chip leader after two full days of play, as he will enter Day 3 with a stack of around 528k.
Praz Bansi, who won a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2006, finished Day 2 with a very respectable stack of 374k. James Akenhead (250k), David Docherty (225k), Doyle Brunson (200k) and Sandor Demjan (200k) also have very healthy stacks heading into the third day of play on Tuesday.
There are a number of well-known names who are still alive in this event, including:
Liz Lieu (190k)
Ram Vaswani (184k)
Christian Harder (180k)
Yevgeniy "Jovial Gent" Timoshenko (164k)
Antonio Esfandiari (120k)
Daniel Negreanu (106k)
Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad (80k)
Freddy Deeb (80k)
Justin Smith (74k)
Brandon Adams (72k)
Matt Hawrilenko (70k)
Todd Brunson (70k)
John Juanda (68k)
Jani Vilmunen (65k)
Sami Kelopuro (55k)
Men Nguyen (54k)
Chad Brown (15k)
Annette Obrestad and John Juanda are both gunning for their second World Series of Poker Europe main event titles, but both will face an uphill battle on Day 3.
As mentioned, 334 players turned out for this event, creating a total prize pool of just over 3.3 million pounds.
The eventual winner of the event will take home just over 800k pounds, which works out to be about $1.27 million USD.
The money bubble will burst tomorrow, as the top 36 players in the tournament will receive at least 21,142 pounds.
