After two Day 1 flights at the Casino of the Empire in London, England, the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event field will be combined for Day 2 play. 200 players remain out of the original 346 entrants, with some of poker’s biggest names scattered up and down the leader-board, as well as on the rail.

A couple of players that were surely the focus of the room –thanks to the multi-million dollar bracelet bets they are involved in– had very different results yesterday: Phil Ivey ended the day in 4th place overall on the leader-board, while Tom Dwan lasted just a couple of levels before he was sent packing.

However, everyone is looking up at chip-leader James Mitchell. The Irish Open Champion has a strong lead over the rest of the field heading into Day 2.

Here is a look at the unofficial top 10 chip counts heading into Day 2 of the WSOPE, courtesy of PokerNews.com’s live reporting:

1.    James Mitchell  — 190,000
2.    Hoyt Corkins  — 150,000
3.    Steven van Zadelhoff  — 146,000
4.    Phil Ivey  — 145,000
5.    Leo Margets  — 143,000
6.    John Dolan  — 140,000
7.    Bruno Fitoussi  — 135,000
8.    Nicolas Levi  — 135,000
9.    Sam Trickett  — 135,000
10.    Quinn Do  — 135,000

Some other notables still in the hunt are Viktor Blom –widely rumored to be Isildur1 from Full Tilt Poker— with around 92,000 chips, and 2009 WSOPE champion Barry Shulman with 61,000 chips.
