111 Players Still Alive in EPT London Main Event After Day 2Published on October 4th, 2009 11:36 pm EST
Another day, another major poker tournament.
The EPT London main event is now well under way, just a few short days after the World Series of Poker Europe main event drew to a close.
730 players turned out for the 2009 EPT London main event, making it the largest ever poker tournament to be played in the United Kingdom.
The total prize pool is just over 3.5 million pounds, with the winner taking home 850k pounds and the EPT title.
There are currently 111 players left in the tournament after two full days of play, meaning that the money bubble will be burst shortly after the start of play on Day 3 (the top 104 spots pay).
Tommy Vedes currently sits atop the leader board with a stack of just under 600k. Rui Milhomens (488k), Jean Montury (485k), Harri Suni (423k) and Alex Wice (420k) round out the list of the top five largest stacks heading into Day 3 of play.
There are a number of well-known names that are still alive in this event. They include:
Jeffrey Lisandro (414k)
Kevin Schaffel (406k) *member of "November Nine"
Peter Eastgate (393k)
John Juanda (321k)
Annette Obrestad (312k)
Vivek Rajkumar (241k)
Justin Smith (236k)
Chris Ferguson (146k)
Day 3 will pick up on Monday afternoon, local time.
