After a turbulent build-up, the International Stadiums Poker Tour has finally kicked off inside Wembley Stadium.
While the event might not have the $30 million guarantee first projected, there will be €1 million for the winner courtesy of Dusk Till Dawn.
Having held a series of Day 1s online, players arrived to find a specially constructed poker village inside Wembley Stadium
Buying in directly to Day 2 is a selection of pros, including Toby Lewis and Tony G, as well as ISPT Ambassadors Sam Trickett, and Michael Mizrachi.
Today's session has welcomed roughly 500 so far players

The starting field of 319 players had been whittled down to 175 and still in contention were some of the game's brightest stars.
Making their way through to Day 3 just behind chip leader Alban Juen (367,500) was the likes of Sam Trickett (132,600), David Benyamine (139,900) and JP Kelly (51,000).
In contrast, the day wasn't so positive for Toby Lewis, Michael Mizrachi and Peter Eastgate who will all need to re-enter today if they want to keep a hand on the ISPT trophy.
Day 2B is expected to attract around 600 players before the re-entry desk is closed and the fields are merged ahead of Day 3.

Many predicted the ISPT would struggle to attract enough runners to fund the €1,000,000 top prize and it seems they were right.
Despite attracting 761 players across Day 2A and 2B – a figure which certainly surpassed many people's expectations – the prizepool has fallen short of the amount required.
Indeed, without taking into account the overlays in various live and online satellites, Dusk Till Dawn are currently liable for €589,060.
After putting together the final prizepool, the minimum payout stands at €540 (380th place), while the tournament's runner-up will receive €285,000.
At the close of Day 2B it was the UK's Pete Linton who led the field with 306,000 chips, just ahead of Paul Bampton (276,000) and Van Tuan Phan (266,600).
While Linton's stack was enough to lead Day 2B, it wasn't enough to surpass the overall chip leader, Juen Alban (367,500), who led 394 survivors into today's session.

Thanks for updating this thread, i think that even the predictions are not fully fufilled this is a very interesting concept.

Plus you always need to take in consideration that on new concept regulars are a bit more sceptic but probably on a second event the participation will be even bigger Smile

Jakub 'Olorion' Michalak wins the International Stadiums Poker Tour Main Event
Understandably with such a top heavy first prize (€1 million to the winner, €285,000 to second) a deal took place which saw each of the final six players pocketing at least €204,000 and then playing winner-takes-all for a further €200,000.
1st Jakub ' Olorion' Michalak €436,000
2nd Xavier El Fassy €204,000
3rd Nick Hicks €254,000
4th Pete Linton €375,000
5th Alban Juen €290,000
6th Gwendoline Janot €243,000
