Another day of the EPT Snowfest Main Event, which is being played in Hinterglemm, Austria, is now in the books. 268 players returned to play Day 2 of the tournament and chip leader was Vladimir Geshkenbein, from Russia, a former APPT High Roller Winner, followed by Philip Meulyzer, from Belgium, with 188,100 and the Swede Michael Tureniec, EPT Copenhagen champ, with 158,000.
Phil Meulyzer, who started the day with the second largest stack, played amazing poker during day 2 and managed to accumulate a stack of 623,500, which was enough chips for him to move up in the lead. Vladimir Geshkenbein and Michael Tureniec also did pretty well and they were among the top 20 players when the day came to an end.
The biggest name in the top of the remaining player-field is the Italian PokerStars Pro Luca Pagano. Pagano, who has 16 money finishes in EPT, will return today with 351,400 chips (7th place). With so many fantastic EPT results and so much chips, we can expect him to get lots of respect from the other day 3 players.
