The World Poker Tour has now made a stop in Amneville, France, and already Day 1a and 1b have been played. Out of the 379 players that paid the €3200 + €300 and entered the tournament, 218 players still have chips left and will return to play Day 2 later on today.
Day 1a was lacking of superstars, but Day 1b attracted quite a few big names. For example there were 2 famous poker couples on show with Liv Boeree/Kevin MacPhee and Catherine Hong/Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier. Unfortunately both MacPhee and ElkY hit the rail at the early stages of Day 1b, but luckily both their girlfriends made it through to Day 2. Other notables that made it to Day 2 are Jamies Rosen, Arnaud Mattern, Joseph Cheong and famous French rap artist Bruno "Kool Sheen" Lopes.
