PokerStars EPT in Kyiv attracted 296 players who paid the buy-in of €5000. 129 players took part in Day 1a and 167 players in Day 1b. 203 players made it through to Day 2 from Day 1, and after that day 2 had been played there were 69 surviving players left. The top 4 players (all with 300k-400k stacks) of these 69 players were Vitaly Tolokonnika (Russia), Maxim Lykov (Russia), Jonas Kronwitter (Germany), and Kirill Boydachenko (Russia). Now as Day 3 has been running for a while there are 41 players left. The current chip leader is Maxim Lykov from Russia with 760,000 chips. On second place we find an Italian named Michele Limongi (715,000), and on third place we have the previous chip leader Vitaly Tolokonnikov (452,000).
As we mentioned before, the PokerStars players and qualifiers have been playing very well so far in the tournament. Day 3 is not an exception as 9 of them are still in the tournament and two of them are in the top - Michael Jurgen Meyburg (Germany), 7th place with 300,000 chips and Vyacheslav Rotach (Russia) 10th place with 286,000 chips. Less than half the amout of chips as Maxim Lykov and Michele Limongi have, but still these two have a great chance to fight their way up to the top as the blinds still only are 2,500/5000.
