Players reach the money at the EPT London

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Oct 02, 2010 Posted in EPT News | No Comments »

It’s a little odd for the money bubble to burst on Day 2 of a major poker tournament –something that usually takes place on Day 3, and sometimes even as late as Day 4– but this is precisely what happened at the PokerStars European Poker Tour London tournament yesterday. The original field of 848 players had been whittled down to just 380 for the start of Day 2, and when the smoke cleared just 128 players remained in the tournament.

Each of those 128 players is now guaranteed a payday –starting at £7,500 for 128th place, and going all the way up to £900,000 for the winner of the tournament. Tournament officials decided to halt play once the money bubble had been burst yesterday, which means the remaining players are in store for a very long Day 3, where they will play down to just 24 players.

Here are the top 10 chip counts heading into Day 3’s action:

1.    David Vamplew with 1,130,400 chips
2.    Steven Levy with 640,300 chips
3.    Benny Spindler with 621,700 chips
4.    Tomas Macnamara  with535,800 chips
5.    Alex Kravchenko with 527,400 chips
6.    John Hall with 513,900 chips
7.    Kenneth Hicks with 484,600 chips
8.    Jamie Brown with 457,900 chips
9.    Cherif Zacca with 413,400 chips
10.    Kevin Eyster with 397,300 chips
