Posted by Steve Ruddock on May 10, 2011 Posted in EPT News | No Comments »

The 2011 EPT Grand Finale may have seen a 20% drop in attendance –thanks a lot US government—but the field is as star-studded as ever – thanks European poker sites -, and with a €1.5 million first-place prize on the line you can bet that every player remaining is as focused as ever.

On Day 2 of the tournament a number of top young poker talents surged up the leader-board as names like Melanie Weisner, Ben Wilinofsky, William Reynolds, Andrew Li, Allen Bari, Will Molson and other young pros join the likes of more seasoned pros such as Ted Forrest, Victor Ramdin, Dan Heimiller, and Ivan Demidov among the 104 players still in the hunt for the title.

Here is a look at the leaders at the end of Day 2 of the EPT Grand Finale:

Here is a look at the top 10 chip counts heading into Day 3 of the EPT Grand Finale:
