EPT Vienna: 80 players remain - Daniel Negreanu is in the lead!

Posted on 29 October 2010 by "T".

278 of 587 players survived Day 1 a and b and returned to play Day 2 of the EPT Vienna Main Event yesterday. At the end of the day 80 players remained, all of them are in the money, guaranteed at least €8,000 each but of course everyone is aiming for the first prize of €700,000!

In the lead is no one else than the canadian poker guru Daniel Negreanu with a 893,000 stack. This will of course make the tournament super interesting to follow from now on. The chip leader from Day 2, the Londoner Laurance Houghton, fell out of the field in no-time after he lost two all ins with pocket pairs vs higher pocket pairs.

Another player who was sent packing during Day 2 was Tom "durrrr" Dwan. For a while, after he had boosted his stack from 60k to 160k, it almost looked like Tom Dwan would be one of the players who made it to Day 3 of the tournament, but unfortunately he lost two coinflip all ins and shortly after he went out with A2 vs Stavros Kalfas' AJ. Dwan has not cashed in an EPT event since 2005.
