EPT London: 106 survivors after the Day 2, Tudor Purice chipleader
Decidedly, the change of place was beneficial for the European Poker Tour of London. The poker room of the Grand Connaught Rooms has seen the registration of 604 players for the Main Event at £5,250 of buy-in. This field generated a prizepool of £2,929,400 ($4,720,768) which will be shared between the 87 players of the ITM. After the two first departure days of this poker tournament, 335 players qualified for the Day 2. Dhru Patel was the chipleader at the start of the Day 2 with 241,000 chips, but other renowned players such as Davidi Kitai, John Juanda, Jesse Sylvia, Vanessa Rousso, Daniel Negreanu, Jake Cody, Sam Trickett, Michael Mizrachi, Ludovic Lacay and Quentin Lecomte were also qualified at the end of the Day 1A and 1B.
On Tuesday, the 335 players were back at Grand Connaught Rooms, for the Day 2 of the Main Event in which only 106 players survived. Tudor Purice is the new chipleader at the end of this day, with 628,200 chips. Yngve Steen finished just behind Tudor Purice, with a stack of 576,400 chips, followed by Ludovic Geilich, Joey Lovelady, Andrew Moseley, Mark Newhouse, Robin Ylitalo, Ruben Velasco, Wai Kin Yong and Daniel Reijmer conclude the Top 10 of the chipcount, at the start of the Day 3. Other well known players like Kitty Kuo, Paul Volpe, Dave Devilfish Ulliot, Dan Smith, Kyle Julius, Timothy Adams, Mike Watson, Steven Silverman as well as Shawn Buchanan are always in the running for the title, rewarded with £560,980 ($902,112). As a reminder, the final table with eight players guarantees a minimum gain of £60,640.
