The European Poker Tour stop in San Remo Italy seems to break its own European attendance record each year, with this year’s field topping out at a massive 1,240 players (62 better than last year’s mark). Perhaps the idea of Italy in mid-April adds to the appeal of the poker tournament!

The San Remo event combines everything poker players could ask for in a poker tournament: beautiful location; major televised tournament; huge turnouts which creates a huge prize-pool; and as part of the PokerStars EPT campaign the tournament attracts a number of online qualifiers (who the pros view as dead-money.

After two days of play (Day 1a and Day 1b) a number of poker’s elite sit near the top of the leader-board, including Bertrand “ElkY” Grosspieller and his 232,200 chips which are good enough to place him in 2nd place overall, just behind chip-leader Michael Eerhart and his 247,800 chips.

620 players will retake the felt at Noon on Saturday, with the blinds at 600/1,200 and a 100 hip ante. Other big names alive and kicking with 6-figure stacks are Chris Bjorin, Jason Mercier, and Isabelle Mercier. However, with such a large field, and many strong players still remaining virtually anything can, and likely will, happen.
