Both starting days at EPT Prague are in the books now. A total of 864 entrants make it the richest poker tournament in Czech history! Iosif Beskrovny will lead the remaining 318-players into Day 2 with 239,000 chips! Todd Terry is the most well-known player among the top 10 players (162,400 chips). Terry has over $2 million in live tournament earnings, including some great results at the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour.
Official Payouts: 128 of the remaining 318 players will be guaranteed a min-cash of €8,000. A final table appearance is worth €75,000, and the winner will take home an impressive €835,000! We will be back with a Day 2 recap tomorrow morning. Stay tuned!
EPT Prague is being massive, it’s nice to see that the field have beaten records. More than half of the players are already watching it through the TV, but still I think it should have been a great experience for many of them, playing against so many good and known pros and dreaming with the first prize. Now only 318 keep doing it, and my advice is to keep focused on the cards and not on these secondary factors that only help to make us lose patience.
